Inspired by Fabergé

Embroidered eggs

A little bit of embroidery from the last couple of days. It's just so relaxing to sit and watch telly while stitching away. And boy did I need it, I'm so glad my working six days in a row stretch is now over!

For some reason I've been looking at pictures of Fabergé eggs lately. I'm not sure if I've been looking at them because I kind of had the idea for these embroidered eggs, or if the eggs came about from looking at the Fabergé ones...

It doesn't really matter, I guess.

They are like little gems to me. I like how they are all different, and how they were an opportunity to do some different stitches. Although it was my attention to follow the Take A Stitch Tuesday challenge every week, that just hasn't happened.

I especially like the pink egg, the colours are so lovely together, and the pattern is really simple. To my surprise I also like the yellow egg. And this is surprising because I rarely use yellow for anything; I don't know why, but yellow just doesn't appeal to me at all. Neither does grey, too boring for my taste. Black is the colour I'm most vary of, probably from too many paintings gone bad from an excessive use of it!

I think I'm going to make some more of the eggs and then put them in a bowl as a little decoration for Easter.
