Egg under cover!

Wow! Finally the spring is on its way – snow is melting away and small snowdrop flowers are showing up in our hedge. My father has been cutting our garden trees, and I have picked up some of the sticks to put in water inside our house. It will be spring in my house within a week. It’s a wonderful time of the year, I get much more energy and I’m very happy every time the sun is shining on a blue sky. I long for the warmer and longer days, and it seems like I don’t have to wait too long for that now.
My trip to Norway last weekend was great. I spent three days at a Quilt Show. I could not resist, I had to buy some new fabrics! I want to sew a garment with quilting technique, and I might do it on the overlock machine and using Rayon thread and have the threads shown on the outside of the garment. As I have been out travelling, I am a little bit late to start the sewing of the Easter projects. However, time optimist as I am, it is still possible to make some small sewing projects for the Easter that I will share with you.
You can find some embroidery designs for the Easter, in HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection #30, Happy Seasons – Endless embroideries . It is totally adorable and also super fun; I do have one towel in my kitchen that I use always and not only at Easter. I do boil some eggs at the weekends, and I wrap them in the towel, so everybody in the family knows where they are and they stay warm for a while.
I have cut out one of the “chickens” to sew it like a cover for the egg, when the egg is put on an egg cup. The cut out can be done either with HUSQVARNA VIKING® 4D Embroidery Extra or in the HUSQVARNA VIKING® 4D Stitch Editor by using the tool “polygon select” and then cut it. I found some small scraps of wool in yellow, and a light green fleece, that I though would be excellent for this egg covers as well as for Kerstin’s idea (that I describe below).
Click here  to download the embroidery file with the above chicken that is already cut out with HUSQVARNA VIKING® 4D Embroidery software. (Use a file compression utility (WinZip or similar) to unzip the downloaded file and save it on your computer.)
Kerstin will sew the chickens in the exact same way as the Mini Santa I did for Christmas. You can still download the template for the Mini Santa from my Christmas blogg insert to use for the new Chicken, to make beautiful table setting for the Easter. I will be sewing some of those too! It is so much fun to decorate the table for the Easter Party!
I have sewn embroideries on two towels. The Swedish kitchen towel size is 50x70cm (20”x 28”), so it does require two endless embroidery designs to make it look best. It’s great to use the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Endless Embroidery Hoop when sewing these two embroideries. I will send each of my two children that have moved out one towel each, as a little Easter gift for them, as I don’t see them this Easter.
Note: It is important; if you’re not using the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Endless Embroidery Hoop to no keep it tightened.
