Wool eggs for my basket


Last fall Janae at Cozy Coops Corner make some cute little pumpkins that she tied around a basket and called them basket huggers...Janea please correct me if I am wrong about this.... Anyways, she inspired me to try my hand at making a spring version. I dug out some of my wool and felt pieces and made a few little eggs to go around my commemorative basket. I thought they were rather cute and I wanted to share a picture of them on the basket on my mantle.
My parents are back from Florida and my Mother had to be hospitalized as soon as she got here. We had a scare but in the end all turned out well and we are happy that she is home...tired but healthy...We are thankful for that. Now my dad is having a few health issues so he is off for a few tests next week. I am so happy they are here and not in Florida for all this stuff!!
I took a picture of a few flowers that were peeking through the ground but for some reason all I got was a blank shot, I will have to try again. Until next time, be blessed.

I love the basket hugger. I have lots of baskets but don't like to put anything permanent on them because I'm always changing things. These basket huggers are perfect.
