Beautiful beaded crocheted Easter eggs

I had a post written about these eggs last Easter and I was messing around on my blog last night and lost it! One touch of whatever I did and the whole thing was gone. I had intended to edit it and re-post so now I will just start from scratch.

My sister-in-law made these beautiful eggs for me years ago, and they are so delicate I'm surprised I have been able to keep them this long without breaking them. I don't pack them away, I just lay them inside of a corner cupboard in the off season just to protect them. And every time I get them out for Easter I have to marvel at them, wondering how she did it. She is a very talented woman and I swear she can crochet anything, I have several things that she has given me over the years that I cherish.

She crocheted beads around empty eggshells, how in the world she managed to do it without breaking the shells is beyond me, but I only have two and wish she would have made me a dozen! I'm sure that would be asking a lot, given how time consuming not to mention tedious to make.

I have purchased some vintage egg cups that I want to set them in for Easter, but until they get here they will stay in the corner cupboard.
