Eggs for Spring

Crochet some Eggs!
Anybody noticed my need to make wee things to celebrate the changing seasons this year?  I made the cutest acorns this fall, and then don't forget the 'lil hearts in February... well guess what?  The birds are raucous and nesting in the bushes outside my office window, which means it's time for spring and some EGGS!
