Framing, still hopping, and traveling

I picked this up at Hobby Lobby last week...
...and I love it!  I'm a little disappointed that many of the beads "rolled" when the fabric was stretched/put under glass, but really, if you aren't looking closely you won't notice.  (Of course I notice because it is mine!)  My mom paid for the framing, so when I give it to my sister, it will be a wedding gift from both Mom and I.  Fine by me!

I'm still working on the Bunny Sampler.  Here, finally, is a picture not taken with my phone-
I just need to finish up the bunny's head and a little bit of the 2 right-hand carrot bunches, and that will be another finish for my spring basket.

Last but not least, on Monday I made my reservations for Celebration of Needlework!  I will be arriving Friday, taking Elizabeth Talledo's "Zen Rabbit Stitching Purse" class and going to the dinner event Saturday, and then leaving sometime Sunday.  I was verrrry tempted by Lynda Keske's "Memories Under Glass" project, but I've taken one of her classes before (and she is a wonderful teacher, don't get me wrong!), so I figured I'd give another teacher a try.  Also, her class started at 2 on Friday, and since I'll have a 6-hour drive ahead of me after dropping Wee One off at daycare around 8...the chances of me arriving in time and in the right mindset to sit and stitch/concentrate for a couple hours straight off are pretty slim.  So if you will be at Celebration or are just in the area, let me know!!  I love to meet "internet friends."
