It took some concentration as far as the woman and the harp thigie but I think it turned out pretty well, and the grapes on the back of the egg I saw a picture of a vintage pattern and just kinda improvised a little bit.

Crocheted from cashmere yarn, I like the way the blue is matte and then I used silk for the white parts, it's hard to see the pearl sheen of the silk thread though in the pictures.

Oh, and I DID write down the pattern for the egg (not the applique's though) but just the basic egg shape if anyone would like it.

(Worked in the round)

Chain 2, 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook (6)

2 sc in each of 6 sc (12)

2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in next stich around (18)

sc in each stitch (18)

sc in each stitch (18)

2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in next 2 stitches (24)

sc in each stitch (24)

sc in each stitch (24)

2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in next 3 stitches (30)

sc in each stitch (30)

sc in each stitch (30)

2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in next 5 stitches (42)

sc in each stitch (42)

Do the above sc in each stitch around 11 more times for a total of 12 rows

hook into next stitch pull loop through then hook into next stitch pull loop through, yarn over and pull through all loops (this is a decrease), sc in next 5 stitches (36)

decrease, sc in next 4 stitches (30)

decrease, sc in next 3 stitches (24) (along this point you're gonna want to start stuffing the egg, I find that if I go any smaller it's hard to stuff it!)

decrease, sc in next 2 stitches (18)

decrease, sc in next stitch (12)

decrease each time (6)

end off, then use a yarn needle to close the hole at the bottom



Anyways, here it is:
