Egg Garland...Yes, another project in the works!

Well, sorry friends, I never did make it out to the craft room. I ended up at the tire place getting four new tires on the Saturn, then I did my thrift store shopping and by the time I got done with all that, I wasn't in the mood to work on cards. I was in the mood to work on the bunny, so that's what I did. I also started a new project for my holiday/theme decorating (yes, I am don't have to tell me...LOL) One of my stops today was at Joann's. I like to see if they have any new books/magazines I can't live without. LOL Thankfully, I didn't find any. Well, I found a pattern in a crochet magazine for an egg garland, which I thought would look neat on my porch. Only, I didn't really want the whole magazine (because I couldn't use a coupon since it was 10% off). When I got home, I searched for a crochet pattern to make an egg and my searches kept taking me back to that magazine I looked at. LOL Well, I dug a little more and found a website that had the pattern for just the egg and it was a download, so I snagged that and tried making one. The pattern called for using that really small crochet thread I use to make the Barbie clothes, but I wanted to try it with worsted weight yarn. So, I took a break from the bunny arms and tried the pattern. This pink egg is the result. I may try with the crochet thread too, so I can see the difference. I like how it came out and it was pretty quick to do. I'm going to try it in several spring colors.

I'm having a hard time finding my motivation to work on cards these days. However, you can see I am clearly motivated to work with yarn. I hope that's okay with you and you don't mind not seeing cards too awfully much.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your weekend is going great!

What ever pleases you - that's what's ok with me. I enjoy your yarn projects (with great envy) as much as your stamping and scrapbook layouts. You just need to follow your heart!

The crochet egg is beautiful! I can't imagine "trying it". You are so comfortable with this skill - it just leaves me with my mouth open.

Whatever you do is wonderful and a joy to look at/hear about.

The crocheted egg is so pretty. I can visualize the garland in pretty pastel Easter egg colors. I love your seasonal decorating - something I did myself prior to small-space living. My kids enjoyed it as I'm sure Amy and Jessica do.

It sounds like you had a good day. Hope your Sunday is, too!

Good morning Jeanne. It's so good to visit with you again. The egg garland looks so great and boy, is there nothing that you can knit or crochet? You have really got a talent. I love your mystery project. What a cute bunny. I can't wait to see further progress. I hope you stay warm today. So much for our nice weather the past couple of days, huh?

You're too funny! You can post about whatever you's YOUR blog, silly girl! ;) We're here to see what you're doing, whatever it is! It's always nice to stop by, even if you're just venting. But being greeted with crafty projects and cards are always nice too. ;)

Love the crocheted egg. I can picture the garland, and it's going to be sooooo cute! I'm no expert, but I like the way the egg looks with the yarn you used. tfs!

big hugs!
