April Egg Basket Block

This April Basket block is part of my Wooly Basket Calendar Quilt.  The pattern is from the Starry Pines Pattern Company:

I used wool for the hand-appliqued basket, cotton flannel for the background fabric, and black perle cotton for the embroidery.

Shell Game

about an egg is
smooth or round or cool
the shell    pin-thin and brittle
the yolk    a little mound of sun
the white  sticky-thick and spreading

resting still as a stone in your palm
everything about an egg
is nothing like
a chick
