Easter Eggstravaganza 13!

Tatted Easter Eggs by Kirsten Wind Hansen
Number 13 unlucky for some!
But it worked a treat for me!
Made in one round using a split ring, it finishes with three rows of chains.
Thought that this would look nice with the chains in a different colour
This one has them in Coats Floretta 20 in a deep raspberry variagation.
Don't like this thread much as it's a 3 cord thread, but the colours are pretty.
Next thought was to build another dessert!! using my own HDT.
I started with my Vanilla Ice Cream in the center.
The chains are in
my Raspberry Juice,
Blackberry Juice
Blueberry Juice.
All the solid colours from my Berry Burst thread.

Looks prettier in real life without the white background.
I didn't even get time to block these last two, but they came out pretty firm to start with.
Multicoloured ones really make the inner round stand out don't they?
I think this design would be lovely on the tree with a jewel hanging inside it.


  1. I can't say exactly why, but this is my favorite so far.

  2. I guess I haven't tatted a lot of the eggs in the book. LOL! I only tatted the ones that really appealed to me but maybe I should look again. These are very pretty!

  3. When you tat the eggs they all are so beautiful and delicate, each one more so than the last. How do you accomplish this magic?

  4. Wow! Those are all great! :)

  5. I like the middle egg! - can't wait for you to get to the onion-skin one with the big bow on top, I tatted that in your HDT - must send you a picture!

  6. hi Miranda I think its the solid outline that is so appealing and such a change and it give lots of colour scope.

    Gina they are all brilliant even tho I thought the book was totally boring!

    Isdihara, magic....that comes with the book!

    God's kid, Lace loving librarian and Maureen, I LOVE to hear which you like.
    Maureen I have tatted that egg,I tried to wait but i couldnt! now i am trying to see if i will ever get to that one in numerical order. Do send me a photo please.
