Don’t put all your eggs in one basket—hang them up instead!

Our friend, coworker, and creator of many things stitched (who answers to the name of Vickie, and is the Assistant Editor of Knit N’ Style magazine), always has a fun display in the window of her workspace. Vickie is happy to share her cute egg garland design with the Create & Decorate blog readers! Leave a comment, if you like, for us to share with Vickie.

The most important part of this instruction? Create the eggs in yarn colors that will make you smile.
