Something Boro-ed, Something Blue

More eggs - it's that time of year. I got this book in the mail last week from Japan,

so I thought I'd make an egg using a few of my indigo fabrics with other snippets. I have further stitching I want to do on it, but the surface is covered - a little challenging because of the uneven shape of an egg.

And here's one of the other pieces from the vat today - not sharply defined but I can fix that another time:

Making a whole basket full of cloth eggs might be nice...
