30 days of Ostara; Day 22
four sided ball ornament
If you make egg shapes, not circles, you get nice egg ornaments.
Here's a nice egg shape, and here's another.
3annabah has made a nice panorama egg by quilling
and here's a pretty egg for embroidery - but you could fill it quilling and use as an ornament or card decoration.
"In some early cultures, the nocturnal hare was actually considered a symbol of the moon. In addition to feeding at night, the hare's gestation period is approximately 28 days -- the same as a full lunar cycle. In European folklore, the rabbit connection to eggs is one based on confusion. In the wild, hares nest in what is known as a form -- basically, a nest for bunnies. When the hares abandoned a form, it was sometimes taken over by plovers, who would then lay their eggs in it. The locals would then find eggs in the hare's form."
Quite a list of Ostara recipes.
I have to say that I couldn't eat Avgolemono, what ever it tastes. The curdled eggs... brrr....
