  1. I have no clue what happened to that first photo, but, it was the same one I eventually got to post for me. Knowing some of the goofy things I do, I probably acidentlly deleted it. I'll blame it on "Stress-Brain"!
  2. What a nice tribute to your musical talent.
  3. Hahahaha! Yes blame it on the current stress. Did you make these or is it a photo from somewhere else? I'm thinking that they should be crocheted using a stitch that does not stretch.
  4. Great ideas. I just might make some. Ravelry has a pattern.
  5. I like this stitch very much. It would make a pretty blanket too. For starting out as a swatch, it turned into a nice project.

    Wow Mary Jo,,,, you got this one just right.
  7. Stunning! You did a fine job on this.
  8. Krys- The painted eggs are beautiful. Did you paint them? I so enjoy folk crafts and their traditions. I only kept one of my painted eggs. It's a wood egg and in the Russian Zhostovo style. All my other international painting style eggs were either sold or given as gifts. I kept this particular one because it is 24k gold paint and cost a small fortune. My oldest daughter keeps after me to paint more but, most of my time goes to crochet and reading now. Maybe anyway.
  9. Thanks for your response Krys. This is exactly one of the techniques I learned back in the day. Bees wax was my favorite even though it is a bit pricier, because it applied like silk and was easy to remove when done painting. And, I think the technique used in children's Easter egg dye kits with the wax crayons was formed after this craft.

    What a cutie! And I like the poses he can do. He should raise a lot of money.
  11. vst2: (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) all in same st or space. 😀
  12. Thank you, that's a nice compliment, but, I did not paint these blown eggs in particular. I did paint many just like them. They have since been sold, and back then I did not think to photograph all my artwork.
  13. I don't know what happened to the photo I posted???? I used to paint eggs just like these and from around the world and hang them on my Easter Tree on my dining table. It was a tradition I kept up from my mother. So; Happy Easter!
  14. I hope it works out and you get the pattern. Happy Easter!
  15. Hi Krys! I love all the info that filters through here too. I am making a baby blanket right now in a DK #3 weight yarn and a H/8 crochet hook. I think the blanket would look just fine in this same weight, even the border.
