B's grandma loved to paint, I suppose before there was blogging and email and Oprah, and twitter that is what mothers did as the afternoon wore on and their hands were looking for something to do (besides the obvious, housework). This weekend my mother-in-law brought out these eggs her mother had painted, aren't they pretty? There's something about their dainty detail and the fact that the hands of a loved-one created them.
So my mother-in-law (a.k.a. sewing instructor) and I embarked on our own little egg project. Our media of choice being fabric, "thirties fabric" to be exact, leftover from J's baby bedding. They went together quickly and turned out very sweet.
From this pattern Retro Mama designed, too fun, super easy, very cute.
