Easter Eggs

Our first example comes from a class taught by area CZT, Sarah Del Mastro:

This second collection comes from a class that Molly Hollibaugh, CZT, taught:

Check out this touching blog entry where Molly describes making these eggs (and more).
From childhood, both Maria and I associated painted eggs with Easter. In preparation for this blog post, I searched "Easter Egg" and found this Wikipedia entry fascinating.

We also associate rabbits with this time and right on cue, Susan Cirigliano, CZT, sent us this delightfully tangled image:

Thank you, Susan!

However you celebrate, all of us wish you and your family a Happy Easter!

Always liked eggs. To look at, not so much to eat. :)
Interesting that, generally, the height and width of an egg is the proportions of sacred geometry.
