Loving the weather today! Windows are open, birds are singing, feels like spring!

So far today, I've been avoiding housework and laundry, but I really need to get a few things done. Did I ever mention that I hate housework? I really do.
I'd much rather plan a new Easter project.
I'm designing a little somthing to fit on the top of this box:
I found this egg shaped box at the grocery store last week and into my cart it jumped! As it turns out, it was a win-win situation. My husband gets the candy and I get the box. Everybody's happy!
This morning I discovered the candy had disappeared already, which got me thinking about an Easter-y type of design. This is what I came up with:
"A Tisket, A Tasket, Here's My Easter Basket"

What do you think? It may need a tweak here or there, but I think it will coordinate nicely with the box. The stitched piece will cover up the labels leaving just a bit of the colored egg pattern showing on the top and, of course, around the box edges. I have the perfect shade of purple Victorian Motto chenille to edge the design, too!
I've diving into housework and laundry and hope to resurface in a couple hours to pull linen and threads and get stitching. Stay tuned for progress pics!
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world. Have a wonderful weekend!
