This is a dinner plate from a vintage set of china that I use at Easter.
I love the way the little sugar eggs look arranged on it. You can see how various types of Easter grass look when changed about. The top grass is iridescent green, the bottom is just iridescent.
The eggs can be bought at Cracker Barrel now days, but it's so much fun to make them. I thought I'd share some pointers.
Of course, we MUST have sugar bunnies, too!
I once tablescaped my Easter dinner table with sugar bunnies as the place cards. Everyone had a sweet memory to take home at the end of the day. When packing my mother in law's home recently, I found her bunny...it was just like the day I gave it to her.
(These little peeps could be yours, if you win the Giveaway..their basket is shown in the picture above this one.)The second part of this tutorial is directing you in the construction of the "You Are No Spring Chicken" chicks.If you are interested in purchasing them rather than doing them yourself, feel free to email me and I will give you cost and postage details. In case you'd like to crochet them on your own, here are the "loose" directions.
Here's my original little chicken...I still love her best!BTW: MY GIVEAWAY CONSISTS OF THE TWO CHICKS (blue and pink) PICTURED ABOVE.
