I've been seeing some smocked items on a couple of blogs here and here which makes me think of my Mom who was a sewing teacher and at one time taught smocking. I always put out my Easter basket and eggs this time of year.

She taught me to sew but she was teaching this art after I left home so I never learned how to do it. I don't know how she did all those little stitches with such precision.
No two eggs are alike and there is a lot of detail in each one.The basket must have taken her forever to make and I treasure it. I hope you all enjoy your Easter. Ours will be cold and still snowy!
