Eggstravaganza......Noteworthy Needle

First she had us stitching on reading glasses, last year she had us stitching on craft pumpkins and this year she has us stitching on papier-mache egg-shaped eggs for Easter.  Janis is finding items we never even thought to use for our cross stitch and makes for a fun stitch.  These are stitched using paper mache eggs and stitched with #5 pearl cotton.  Janis recommends 2 strands, but when stitching the pumpkins I used 1 strand and it was easier to get through and I think the coverage was fine, but you can try both ways to test what you are most comfortable with.  The book of charts includes 5 charts to be done on the egg boxes, plus the same 5 charts done for stitching on Aida or linen.  

The paper-mache eggs come unfinished so you will have to paint them, and they measure 8.4" x 11.6"
