Two charming birds from Machine Embroidery Design Easter chicks have chosen for their game a painted egg, as a bright spot standing out on a background of delicate spring flowers. It seems that it is only a pleasant picture, but in a huge variety of Easter motifs no element appears aimlessly. The chicks, which yesterday themselves were inanimate eggs, today rejoice in the new day and demonstrate the triumph of life.
There is a legend telling how the tradition to paint eggs for Easter was born. Over time it is difficult to determine whether it is fiction or truth, what doesn’t make the story less interesting. One of the messengers who spread the news about the revival of Jesus from the dead was Mary Magdalene. She came to Roman Emperor Tiberius and exclaimed: “Christ is Risen!”, but the governor questioned the veracity of these words. He told her the dead cannot be resurrected, as an egg cannot suddenly become red instead of white. As soon as the phrase was uttered, the egg lying on the table turned as scarlet as blood. Then Tiberius came to believe in the miracle and all the others with him.

Eggs for Easter are painted in various ways with all kinds of patterns. However, the traditional red is considered as a symbol of the blood of the crucified Savior. Nowadays chocolate eggs in shiny wrappers are increasingly replacing the colored ones. Some craftsmen make real masterpieces from the eggshell, some carve eggs from wood. No matter how different Easter customs of diverse countries are, colorful eggs should be present on any table during the feast of Resurrection Sunday, at least in the form of beautiful tablecloth embroidery, such as Machine Embroidery Design Easter chicks.
