"Tis Spring and thoughts of Easter bring to mind Easter Eggs. Not long ago I learned of another tatter who was honored by having two tatted Easter Eggs at the White House on display. The First Lady did an Easter Egg display several years ago and she was one of the lucky few to get in on the opportunity. The First Lady accepted an egg from each state. The fortunate tatter is Janet Carroll, the author of "Elegant Tatting Patterns."
And what a wealth of tatting designs are available here at BellaOnline.com and other fine tatting resources online. Here are just a few designs for Easter Eggs. Enjoy!
