Get Them Easter Eggs Rollin’ :)

Easter is coming and I’m willing to bet it doesn’t leave any crochet addict calm 🙂 Gotta create! Gotta decorate! Get those Easter Eggs rolling.

Naturally, I created crochet Easter eggs. But I didn’t stop at that. I wanted to make them special and because I love traditional floral ornamets, I decided to try embroidery. I don’t really have any experience doing that, but I think the eggs came out quite good. As usual, I didn’t have any specific design in my head, when I started, I just sort of “went where my hands took me”. I tried to use natural colors. I think it matches the tree branches quite nicely.

I created these eggs for Crafters Gallery in Saraga Springs, Upstate New York. If you’re in the area, be sure to check them out! You can also order them at my Etsy shop or contact me directly.

If you’re not from around here, you have one more reason to visit the beautiful Saratoga Springs with its old charm and character. You might also want to visit the local spa or come for the summer world-famous horse races. There is also many interesting shopping opportunities, some of them very old and traditional, such as the Putnam Market. My personal favourite spot is Saratoga Coffee Traders, where you can get coffee named Death Wish, which is just, well, awesome 😀 You don’t wanna miss that, right?!

Anyway, back to the products that are on display in the amazing Crafters Gallery. I hand-painted four new mugs, that will surely warm someone’s heart. There a sheep mug (errr, not a surprise there), a horse mug, a dog mug, and favourite – an old tree mug. The animals are enjoying the spring. Unlike us in the Adirondacks area who still wait to see the snow dissapear!

These standard-sized coffee mugs are hand-painted with Americana Acrylic Multi-Surface Satin Paints. They were left to dry for four days and baked later in the oven, so they should be dishwasher safe. However, since I haven’t tested these mugs over a long period of time, I would recommend to wash them by hand – just to be safe.

Spring themed coffee mugs, each one was carefully designed and hand-painted.

Since the Easter holidays are approaching, I wanted to design something special for the shop, that would be very Easter-y. So I naturally ended up creating bunnies. They are inspired by the very cute Rex breed. I used Lion brand Homespun acrylic yarn and premium polyester stuffing. The material makes it easy to wash.
