11th International Easter Egg Fair




Here are some of the eggs from the Easter Egg Fair we visited last weekend in Kloster Eberbach.

The technique used here is stitching - if you click for the larger image you'll see the little holes. Very delicate work so you can imagine that those eggs are quite expensive...

I would never have the rest and am simply to clumsy but I do appreciate how delicate these eggs are. Prices are not delicate though!

My daughter and I have an Easter egg book and were just looking for some to make for Easter. These are stunning (but far too difficult for us to try!)

Yes, I admired them as well. I'm afraid I'd never bring up the patience to do that. Besides that I would probably ruin a lot of eggs before finishing them since they are so fragile.

Hi, Nicola one of my passion is embroidery. You can imagine I greatly appreciate this picture and admire the work.
Do you do such things your self

marie - I've learned the basics of embroidery in elementary school but since then I haven't practised it. It seemes to be revived in the fashion idustry - I saw a lot of tops, shirts, blouses, t-shirts, etc. with embroidery (mostly flowers) last year in summer and some of them really beautiful artwork.

Thank you all for your comments!
