not a hot cross bunny in sight

I took part in Lucy Lockets bunny swap recently. My bunny was posted off on Monday this week and it has arrived with its recipient Sara, so I'm safe to post a pic of it now. Sadly I didn't have great light when I took the pic - hopefully Sara can take a good pic and send it on to me.

So here she is, front and back. She is made from an old felted wool blanket and some floral cotton/linen mix fabric:
and yesterday, the only postal day over this weekend, I got my swap bunny from Sara, what a cutie:I'm really loving spots and dots at the moment and sara also sent me a little fabric stash (all dotty) too, and a brooch, and some chocolate bunnies, and a little piece of handmade soap - which looked like fudge, but I'm glad i didn't eat it - it was soap wasn't it Sara?

Today, I'm going to do lots of cooking. I'm also going to try Jamie Olivers hot cross bun pudding, which is basically like a lazy bread and butter pudding recipe.
Cut hot cross buns and fill with marmalade. Put in an oven dish and pour on custard. Slam it in the oven for a while. Yum!

Thank you for stopping by at my foodblog and putting a link to Jamie's very popular hot cross pudding.
I wouldn't have known about your blog otherwise. Everything on your site is really, really cute!

Oooh, I'll be interested to know how you find the JO recipe. A friend of mine tried it last week and was disappointed with the results, which seems a shame.

Your bunny is very cute - I love her tail. And Sara's bunny is gorgeous too - I love the expression on its face!

Hope you're having a good Easter weekend. x

Both bunnies are gorgeous - they're breeding like rabbits in your house, aren't they?!

I saw JO do that recipe and thought yum - I hope it was as good as it sounded :)

I love the labels you put on your softies - do you print them yourself? If so pleeeeeeeeeeeease tell me how!!!

Happy Easter xx

Wow, the bunnies certainly seem to be conforming to type round at your place .... breeding like the proverbial!

The materials you used for your swap are so cute, and I love the dotty design of the one you got back.

And what's this I've been reading about a sale at your shop?? Heck, I need to get dressed and get over there!!
