My little bunny above with the large egg is saying Happy Easter to you.  The egg has 4 sides to view.

I watched the tv show that featured Allie Aller and her sidekick and co-author Valerie Bothell of their new book out very soon. I believe you can pre-order it on Amazon.  What I have seen on the cover is wonderful and knowing them it will be just as good for the rest of the book.

 Valerie happened to be showing this egg she had made and I just had to make one.  I made up my own pattern and with a few starts and stops I ended up with my version.  t is roughly the same size as Valeries I think.  It was fun to do.

 I need a few more additions to it that I did not have in Florida and could not find around here.  I am so happy that we have a Hobby Lobby right near us now and no longer have to drive farther to a JoAnnes just for a spool of thread or other small things.

I have one of Gerry's beautiful painted rabbit buttons at home and will bring that back next Fall and attach.

This was a fun project and Valerie does sell her pattern on her web site.

Harv and I are having a quiet Easter.  No company.  I have a small turkey breast thawed and ready to cook.  I am going to make a egg custard pie for dessert.  Haven't made one of these in years.

Beautiful egg! Too pretty to only have out at Easter, I think. We had a fairly quiet Easter too - we got together for a potluck lunch at my aunt & uncle's, but that's it for us. We have a turkey in the freezer but there's no sense in cooking it just for the two of us.

Belated wishes for a very happy Easter to you and Harv. Lovely work on your patchwork egg - you are so quick to try out new ideas!
Our Easter was not a happy one, for Ken anyway. He got sick on Sunday, and his oldest friend died unexpectedly on Monday...

Beautiful. It looks like you don't need the book. Hope you had a good Easter.
