My Mom was a prolific sewer and crafter. One of the needlearts she was a master of was smocking. I posted at Christmas about the smocked ornaments she made. Well, she also made Easter eggs which I have proudly displayed in my home now.
The pretty candy colors are so wonderful this time of year and just looking at all those little pleats she pulled her needle and thread through brings back so many memories of her.She also made the basket that the eggs are in. She was a sewing teacher and taught me to sew along with many other crafts but smocking was something she started after I left home so I never learned that from her. I just have lots of little girl dresses, Christmas ornaments and Easter eggs to treasure and remember her with when I get them out every year.
