smocked eggs

I made these smocked eggs over 20 years ago as a present for my mother. Each pastel colored egg has a different smocked pattern, my mother returned them to me not long ago, they have provided many years of admiration, what a worthwhile craft! The store I bought smocking supplies from provided pre-pleated rectangles.

When I first saw these eggs I enlarged the smocking to admire the patterns. I know you have done hand smocking. Knowing pre-pleated blocks can be purchased gives, even a novice, a chance to have their handiwork admired. Susan in Portland, Oregon
