I've been cross stitching since I was eight and I can't see those easter eggs being anything but a major headache! They are definitely beautiful though...

We "blow" eggs to get the yolk out (a tiny hole carefully punched on the top and bottom of the eggs accomplish this) and then carefully paint designs on them and hang them outside in a tree. They last until they break, so we only actually do this every couple of years.... I think we might be this year since we're going to the inlaws this time and I dont' feel like traveling with a bunch of fragile eggs....
