Easter Egg Change


With Easter around the corner,
I think it's time to share with you my Egg Change!

oOo

Here is my stitched piece sent to Valérie.

A simple & colourful Easter Needleroll design from Easter Blessings of Lizzie Kate


White 28ct Brittney evenweave,
stitched 2 over 2 with all
DMC preconized colours
- Except for the hearts, which I changed for a more vibrant colour -

The needleroll finish was an absolute first!
I used the instructions from the perfect tutorial at Focus on finishing

Oooh I so wished I could have kept this piece!!!

A bit of pink ribbon, a little butterfly "button" for the "i" of Spring
and voila...



Oops! Sadly we can see the pink thread through...


Also enclosed in my parcel were chocolates, of course!
and other bits & pieces

 



I understand Valérie is happy with her Eastery gifts,
I certainly had fun putting them all together

oOo

Here is what I've received from Judith in Germany.

Sadly Judith hasn't got a blog, but nonetheless, is a talented lady
Look at this cute little pincushion!



Also included were some wooden bunny ornaments


Chocolates, a Easter themed Rico Designs book full of lovely charts
and some hen wooden pegs

 
Thank you Judith, I am really happy with your gifts :)
 
The Easter Egg Change is now fully on its way,
I can't wait to see what you all have received / will be receiving!

Happy Stitching,
Mii

  33. Mmmm, Milka... :) Lovely gifts and your needle roll is perfect (don`t worry about that tiny pink showing through: there was no other way to stitch those scattered individual stitches, so clearly, your camera is too good, lol!). And the butterfly button finishes it off beautifully. Happy Easter!
