It wouldn't be Easter without Hot Cross Buns.
Somehow this year, I forgot to buy some from the bakery, so recipe searching was in order.
I found a great recipe at Taste .....

I was 1/2 way through assembling the  ingredients when I realised there were dry cranberries in the dough.  Luckily some were in the cupboard- a yummy surprise in the buns.

I was supposed to seive some apricot jam and then brush the warmed jam onto the buns as a glaze.  Much too labour intensive!  I just spread my jam onto the warm buns.  mmmmm.

Delicious just out of the oven and still warm.

After a couple of weeks of total quilting inactivity, I've finally started finishing off some small projects.  Here is my finished little quilt from Temecula Quilt Shop.  This was their 5 week mystery project to celebrate 5 years in business.  The fabrics are Old Savannah by Paula Barnes, not my usual colours but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

This sweet little quilt is March's option from Jo's Country Junction.

And lastly, these gorgeous little baskets are March's quilt from a quiltalong with Kathy from Sentimental Quilter.
Feeling pretty happy with myself at the moment, but now I need to get started on April's quilts.
Whilst the momentum is still speeding along, I also need to catch up on my Just Takes 2 red and white quilt blocks.
