A Prize-Winning Easter Egg

In March 2013 I posted an article about Easter Eggs embroidered with Schwalm Whitework motifs. At the same time, I published the leaflet “Embroidered Easter Eggs” which contains a more detailed description, and the download-item “24 small designs” which contains additional designs.
Based on this material many beautifully embroidered and excellently finished Easter eggs have been worked in the meantime.

I wish to share with you special Easter Eggs made by Donna Finley from the U.S. One of her perfectly worked Schwalm eggs won a Blue Ribbon at the Marlyand State Fair.

Congratulations, Donna!

She wrote to me:
“I thought you might be interested to know that my adaption of your Schwalm Easter egg idea won a blue ribbon at the Maryland (USA) State Fair this month [August 2014]. It was my first time entering anything in any fair, so I am especially grateful for your inspirations and instructions.

I originally made a set of five eggs, most using the pretty heart-and-tulip design from your blog. I did purchase more designs from you, however, and it was one of those that won. …. I used wooden eggs from a general crafts store, which gave the finished pieces a lovely heft, and ¼” gimp when I failed to find readily available velvet ribbon… .”
