Keep up all the wonderful eggs everyone!


​Grab a dozen at the store! Or maybe pick some eggs up at a farmer's market or neighbor?

 

Would love to see more entries, show us what you can do!

Anyone interested in looking into embroidered eggs can check out:

I found out everything I needed there.

(1) Alexander the Great was a great general.

(2) Great generals are forewarned.

(3) Forewarned is forearmed.

(4) Four is an even number.

(5) Four is certainly an odd number of arms for a man to have.

(6) The only number that is both even and odd is infinity.

 

Therefore, Alexander the Great had an infinite number of arms.

There are similar proofs that Bucephalus had an infinite number of legs...

Plain eggshell, cotton floss, beads, sequins, and a generous amount of superglue. This was my first, and took about six hours.

Second entry:

 

Egg #2; took a lot longer.

Three coats of shellac, cotton thread, synthetic metal thread. My second, but it took a lot longer. (All that "cross-hatching" with a tiny thread...)

Well Done!!  Very creative.

In between roasting turkeys, baking pumpkin pies or driving to grandma's house and Black Friday sales...did anyone find time to get crafty with eggs/eggshells the past few days?

You can get egg shells by the dozen at the grocery store...of course, they're protective packaging for the eggs and you'd have to figure out what to do with those, lol.
