Yep, 15 eggs finished just in time.
This project did admittedly involve a little trial and error on my behalf - no reflection on Retro Mama's pattern - but I got there in the end. My Nana's egg (version 1 AKA blob) just happened to be first cab off the rank (no preferential treatment I promise) and to say the least it did not in any way resemble an egg. Here's proof. Feel free to laugh..... I did!
After some tweaking & experimenting with the shape and filling mix I finished up with these groovy eggs. Initially the plan was to fill with rice but this was too heavy and distorted the shape. I found a mix of rice and polyester fill more successful and spiced it up with essential oil for the ladies and cardamon spice for the gentlemen.
So I shall merrily do the rounds at the family picnic today (with Easter basket swinging from my arm) and hand out my groovy eggs that were made with Easter love.
