Easter Goodies

Good Afternoon Everyone!
Don't you love these tiny, tiny quail eggs.  About ten
years ago, I rode the train up to Philadelphia to go to
the Philadelphia Flower Show.  If you ever get the
chance to go, you must.  My friend and I left the show
and walked to the Philadelphia Farmers Market
(I think that is what it was called).  Anyway, it was
booth after booth of wonderful food stuff.  I bought
three dozen of these tiny quail eggs and very carefully
brought them home.  They all made it safe and sound.
After using them in my Easter decorations that year,
I put them back in their little plastic egg cartons and
stored them away.  I did not boil them, for fear of
cracking them.  They have kept beautifully and I
have been enjoying them ever sense.
I've made some Easter decorations that I hope all
of you will like.  They are now listed on my Etsy
site.  If you do not use Etsy, just email me if interested.
Here is a peak at what is listed.

I am so happy - I now have 300 followers.  It is amazing to
me that 300 wonderful people are even remotely interested
in what I have to say.  It is impossible to express how
grateful I am to all of you - for your comments, your concern,  
your good wishes, and your patience for all of the dumb things
 I have done while learning how to do this.  
You are truly appreciated.
Many Happy Stitches,
