An update and a spring basket

I've been stitching away on La-D-Da's "The Ark."  I don't love it the way I did when I started, but I just can't completely abandon it...so I'll keep on going...
(Zoinks, those colors look a bit off!!  Maybe it is just this monitor?  Hmmm.  Anyway, the darkest brown there is DMC 3371, and the lighter brown - for the ark itself - is 3031.)

We've had a day or 2 of lovely weather here, and yesterday I just didn't feel well enough to go to work.  ;)  (It really WAS a mental health day...neither DH or I felt great over the weekend, and the Wee One managed to cover herself and her room with diaper ointment during her naptime on Sunday so a good portion of the weekend chores were supplanted by cleaning up that mess...)  So after sending the Wee One to daycare - it was soccer day, and she wouldn't miss that! - I let myself sleep in a bit, did my own laundry, and pillowified the finished Bunny Sampler.  Here it is, in the basket with my Snowflower Diaries piece.
Over-one on 22-ct., it really came out rather tiny!  Hmm, guess I will need to finish up a few more seasonal pieces for that basket....
