See the land, her Easter keeping,
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices;
Fields and gardens hail the spring;
Shaughs and woodlands ring with voices,
While the wild birds build and sing.
You, to whom your Maker granted
Powers to those sweet birds unknown,
Use the craft by God implanted;
Use the reason not your own.
Here, while heaven and earth rejoices,
Each his Easter tribute bring-
Work of fingers, chant of voices,
Like the birds who build and sing.
I love it when I come across a quick and easy craft that I already have all of the goodies to make it with! Thanks to Joggles, here is such a one!
The simple template. I traced mine onto xray film that a friend had given to me.
Felt cut out and ready to sew.
Eggs sewn, seams trimmed and eggs turned.
Stuffed little “footballs”.
Decorating with scrap bits of lace and ribbon.
All prettied up!
And just in time too, since I’ve not put out any Easter decorations whatsoever. (I found a video tutorial from Joggles.)
I’ll be playing with very important people all next week. I’m looking forward to a wonderful visit from my son and his family!
