Diane wrote a "guest" tutorial for making Japanese Inspired Ornaments during the very first holiday season on Gingerbread Snowflakes; and three years later, it still remains one of the top ten posts, so I thought I would share a few simple techniques for making similar Thread Wrapped Easter Eggs!
In my opinion, a beautiful way to combine and honor age old traditions from East and West.

Lovely, tiny signs of spring are popping up in the garden!
Wild violets we have been encouraging to become an extensive ground cover.
Looks to me as though the wild geranium and the wild violets are in a battle for garden domination!
Very first little wild Oxallis unfurled it's first set of leaves.
We have had our wild oxallis for 15 years - it tagged along with a giant fern we dug and rescued from a clear cut!
My sweetie had to point out these Astilbe shoots - they are virtually invisible in the pile of old stems and leaves.
To celebrate Spring's arrival, I just completed my Forager Bag made from the e-booklet by the same name available on Stitch Village shop. I will be using this bag for a lot more than Foraging! This is the first bag I have owned for over 20 years!
A little plea for help!
Lovely boucle - 98% acrylic and 2% poly. 140 gram ball. US8 or 5mm needles recommended. Also a hank of sari sill yarn. Found both at "Knittn' Kitten last fall.
I am thinking I would like to make a hat. The boucle for the body and crown and then add a narrow ruffle around the edge using the Sari silk.
I haven't been able to find a pattern. Can anyone help?

To welcome spring, I am going to share the words to a sweet little song my dear Great Grandmother used to sing to me every night when she tucked me into bed.
My Grammie lived in a little guest house right next to our house - separated only by her lovely rock garden and a small lawn where we would sit with her and eat her strawberry shortcake, or shell peas just picked from her garden, or pit cherries from the orchard.

This lovely little book, sent to me by an extraordinarily artistic and skilled Swiss quilt maker by the name of Maryline Collioud-Robert, couldn't have arrived at a better time. It happened to arrive just as that nasty old bug got hold of me. I didn't feel like doing much of anything but reading and knitting.
