Easter decoration

Ich habe sehr alte ausgeblasene und bemalte Ostereier

aus meiner saisonbezogenen Schublade geholt. 40 Jahre

bewahre ich sie schon auf. Unsere Tochter D hat sie gemacht.

Sie hat inzwischen selbst eine Tochter, die solche Dekoration

machen könnte.

Easter decoration out of my seasonal drawer made by DD about 40

years ago - I must ask her if her DD is painting on empty eggshells

now before Easter, too.


Am Abend mit Beleuchtung.

In the evening with electric illumination.

In Karen Ruanes Kurs haben wir mit der Maschine
Spitze auf Käseleinen genäht. Hier mache ich "Spitze" von Hand.
I learned how to make machine sewn lace in Karen Ruane's class.
Here I am making a kind of "lace" by hand, very, very slow.

Zum Grössenvergleich ein Veilchen.

To compare the size I put a violet near.


Im Vorgarten - Osterglocken mit Kaminhut. Mir gefällt die Form

des alten Kaminhutes.

This is in the front garden of our old, old farm house in mid-March.

Daffodils and the chimney hat which fell down last year when

DH cleaned the chimney from inside - strange that it did not break.

I love its shape.

Eine Wildgans auf der Durchreise nach Norden

auf Nachbars Dach - sie "sprach" mit ihren Mitreisenden, die

rechts und links auf den Hausdächern sassen.

A wild goose on her way to the north on neighbour's roof.

She was talking with her fellow travellers sitting on neighbouring

houses. (Are they travelling to the north at all - may be someone





  1. the eggs are so festive. nice lace eyelets. i just love making eyelets by hand.

  2. Cute chimney top! How amazing you have kept those little eggs for all those years. They are really special and look good with the light shining on them. Your lace work is coming along beautifully.

  3. The eggs are lovely and that lace is superb. You have patience.

  4. You brave thing, such a tiny embroidery!
    Happy Easter,

  5. I love how the lace looks, but I'm not sure I have the patience for doing it by hand, but once the wedding piece is finished, I may give it a try. Happy Easter!
