Eggs & Nests & Flowers, OH MY!

I just love it that I have blog friends that I visit and I see something fun they've done and they're so sweet that they post where to get the pattern and I print it and before you know it, the inspiration has spread and then I have new fun things to share!! :-)  I added the pattern for the eggs at the bottom.
I also wanted to show you my progress on Japanese Flower shawl - I'm making it in a U shape.
I found this adorable vintage glass Easter bunny a few years ago, the bottom has an old paper "stopper" and I imagine that the bunny came originally filled inside with colorful Easter candies.  Also I had this real bird's nest I found some time back on the ground.
Crocheted Easter Eggs, up close and personal.
Isn't my glass bunny cute? 
Does this photo above make you feel off kilter? :-)
Colorful eggs.
Eggs and flowers...

Thanks for coming to visit!  Happy Easter to one and all!  I'll have photos of our Easter Egg Hunt on the weekend.. thanks for stopping by!!  ((hugs)) Teresa

Crochet Egg Pattern

*F hook  (I used a C yarn for a tight "knit")
*Worsted Weight Yarn  (I used cottons and some acrylics)
*Fiber Fill
*Stitch Marker
*Yarn Needle

Notes: Pattern is worked in the round so there is not joining or turning. You work around and around in a spiral. It helps to use a stitch marker to help keep your place
