I love Easter. I have so many fond memories of celebrating Easter in my home as a child. The preparations and the anticipation of Maundy Thursday was as exciting as Easter day itself for on that day my grandma dyed the eggs at the break of dawn. We always got to bed excited, unable to get to sleep, wondering what gorgeousness of dyed eggs we were to witness the next morning. For in my country it is a tradition the first eggs to be dyed at dawn when it is said they collect the power from heavens above and bring good health and prosperity. The first three eggs should be red - denoting blood - giver of life. The dyed eggs are left in a basket to be touched by the first rays of the sun.
I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically hold on to tradition and try to make Easter as exciting for my children as it was for me.
And it has become a tradition for me to make egg baskets out of crochet yarn. This year was no exception. I made simple, gift baskets for a memorable Easter time.
