EASTER PARADE

©
Easter Parade.... bunnies hopping along the country road, a basket laden with gorgeous wrapped Easter eggs...
Stopping at houses with gardens ....
placing a gleaming silver foil coloured egg under a little daisy... 
for a little child to discover...
****
I knew when I wrote Easter Parade it evoked a distant memory...& I could not place the scene in my memory...
It was the Easter Parade in Bendigo...
As a child my Mum would travel with me on the train from Cohuna to stay with her parents in Bendigo  & we'd go to the Easter Parade with Mum's sister & children I guess.
I recall the buzz...

As I do when I recall the Easter colouring in books .... saving the papers from the easter egg.....
searching in the garden for eggs .....

Just like I wrote about the Christmas stocking raffle ...
These memories are so magical & stay with us....nice things that bed down in the long term memory
&
It is what I draw on now
****
Take a rabbit button
that is all you need in the button zone...
felt now...how amazing is this stuff...
Cut out an egg shape...in say a base pale colour or off white..
I'd cut strips of felt to make a pattern on the egg..
wiggly lines..zigzag lines ( use ric rac also ) pinked lines with the scissors...
Stitch to egg
I like the idea of random french knots 
Add flowers again embroider a few basic flowers or elaborate  ..
If perhaps you want to use as a tag, cut 2 eggs & stitch together after decorating the front of the egg..

I did all this work after my breakfast today so hence why I can babble on what to make ...
These will get to the web site in the next day or so....
