A new non-cupcake project

So I've decided I like the house decorated for Christmas & thought I may have to decorate for Easter too. Yesterday, while going through my file of freebie cross stitch patterns, I came across these cute San Man Originals designs. I do love this style of pattern, although I've never done one. Not sure what that means, but anyway.... I printed them out & put them aside for later.

Fast forward a few hours and I was shopping. I came across 2 hot pink photo frames and had to buy them for "something". Wasn't quite sure what, but hey, they were cheap! And hot pink! Got home and started thinking about the Easter designs and how I was going to finish them. Thought about the frames and decided to see if they'd fit. What do you know? The one with 3 apertures will fit the designs, with a little bit of tweaking!

Then I recalled a pretty fabric I had, that I just hadn't found the right project for. I pulled it out and it will work nicely. It's a hand dyed fabric called "Pot Pourri" from Polstitches Designs in the UK. It's 28 count Jobelan evenweave and is *just* the right size.

Just because I'm a geek, I put together a mock-up of how the finished project may look, minus the fabric background. I hope it fits just right and doesn't become a logistical nightmare. Time will tell I guess!
