I got a little distracted this past month. I was browsing and came across the crocheted hen and a lot of pictures of tatted eggs. It started with the red egg, then I found the pattern used on the blue egg. The blue egg turned out to be a lot bigger than I expected. I was almost through with the first half when I looked at the instructions again and realized that the thread used in the model was size 80 and I had used a size 20 thread. Luckily I was able to find a paper-mache egg that it could fit. Now I'm working on one in the size 80 thread, it should be ready by next Easter. 

Aside from the pin cube that was in my last post the only stitching that I can report on is this below.

The eggs are lovely, very pretty,

I really like the variegated threads you are using in the Threadworks design, very muted and subtle.
