Needlepoint egg ornaments from Melissa Shirley Designs stitched by Dr. Margot.
I am fascinated by trees covered with needlepoint and always am amazed at how much love and stitching has gone into decorating a tree with all needlepoint ornaments. Here are some trees and ornaments for Easter.
Mary RB's tree with her needlepoint ornaments from various artists. Mary is a very prolific needlepointer! She said she purchased her tree at Pier One for needlepoint ornaments.

A member of the Swan stitching group in Austin, Ruth K.'s tree has lots of MCM double-sided rabbit ornaments on it! So cute! That's cute Stephanie A., the photographer, in the mirror!
A close up of 2 of Ruth's adorable front and back rabbit ornaments. Sadly, these canvases are no longer available.
Don L., an owner of Associated Talents, a wholesale needlepoint canvas distributor, sent pictures of his Easter tree. Don emailed that the tree is 4 feet tall and he purchased it a few years ago from the Martha Stewart e-commerce site. Not only does he have loads of Associated Talents designed carrots and eggs, but he also has some needlepointed ornaments from other needlepoint companies and lots of Christopher Radko glass bunny ornaments on it. Don said he really liked Melissa Shirley Designs woodland animals eggs and most viewers comment on the skunk egg-which I think is precious!
Don, an owner of Associated Talents, loves to do Easter ornaments! In fact, Don really loves needlepointing anything! Under the tree, a couple of Easter house needlepointed stand ups and a little rabbit with a hat can be seen in the front. Love that galvanized container!
Detail of Don's marvelous tree!

A favorite egg, this little Melissa Shirley Designs egg with a skunk gets noticed a lot! I may need to add this to my stash!
Now for some individual treeless ornaments!
I did this egg as an experiment with a stitch and added this big domed button from Susan Clarke Originals.
Dr. Margot did these Melissa Shirley Designs eggs for her daughter's Easter tree.
I wrote stitch guides for Dr. Margot. We added buttons and silk ribbon to this egg.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to send pictures of your tree!
See you Easter morning! Why not needlepoint on an egg while the kids are hunting Easter eggs!
