Thanks to the Easter Bunnies!

Easter Bunny April brought me four fat quarters of quilting material.  All very nice.  All will be put to good use.

If I had them a bit earlier, I might have used the one on the left for the daybed.  I am NOT changing it now!

Easter Bunny Seth grilled chicken for us all.  Really good!

I got a lot more done on the rug to go in the library. 

This rug is a little different than most cross stitch rugs.  I wanted a little more pronounced diamond shape. If I did it on regular cross stitch, even weave fabric, the diamonds would have been square. 

I did it on fabric that was a longer weave in one direction.  Thus the diamond shapes.  Cheaters sometimes prosper...

The only other mini-ing that I did was the bolster pillow for the window seat.  I still need to put tassels on the ends.

Easter Bunny Amare painted this for me last week...I might just have to make this three year old's masterpiece mini.  If I did, it could go into a mini scene.  Maybe even over the fireplace in the library...

The amazing thing is, he didn't use a brush.  It was done by pouring paint on the paper, in a box.  Then putting marbles in the box to roll around on it. 

He has been doing a lot of these and they all look pretty good for a three year old artist!

Anyway, it's Monday and we are going to see Fast and Furious 7 this morning. 

See you tomorrow...
