Or is that hot...cross...buns? Well, there were some of those, too. But I've also taken advantage of the beautiful days over this Easter break to do a little cross stitching . . .

This trio of rabbits is perfect for a little lavender-filled satchet . . . a cute little chocolate substite for a diabetic. I've used some vintage ribbon and the lavender was grown and dried by a friend.

And this is a colour combination I've been wanting to use for a while . . . nice rich buttercup thread on a french blue linen. I'm not sure quite what I want to do with this now that it's done, but I really like it. Not just the colours, but also the whimsical childhood feel that it has. I think I'll be working with this combination again.
