Easter Eggs and weeds

Finally finished my Retro Mama easter eggs Saturday. They sat for over a week waiting for me to sew the 1" turning hole.
They never made it to the dining room table until this morning. I think I'll leave them in this bowl in the china cabinet so I can see them year-round.
They were sewn with the yellow, green and light blue charm squares from one of my Recess charm packs. I'll definitely make more for next Easter.

My second sock is nearing it's toe. I hope to get these finished up soon. I wound up yarn for two more pairs last night. I'm finally going to cast on my Cabin Cove Yankees Ikat (scroll down to see the yarn and the dyer's socks) and I just bought some Wicked Witch yarn from Knit Picks. I've been wanting some purple socks for a while.
We had a nice Easter. B looked very charming in his shirt and tie. He insisted upon wearing the shirt and tie all day yesterday, putting them back on after his nap and not taking them off until we put on his PJs. I don't think it will be hard getting him dressed up for our next family event (little sister is graduating next month).
