Happy Easter!

From Luke 24:1-12 ESV

(1) But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.
(2) And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
(3) but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
(4) While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.
(5) And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?
(6) He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee,

 (7) that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.”
(8) And they remembered his words,
(9) and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.

(10) Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles,
(11) but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them.

(12) But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.
He Is Alive!

Love Cross Stitch

I do love cross stitch, but this is the little LOVE freebie from the Workbasket that I finally finished and framed.  I used DMC 115 on linen.  I think it turned out nice! It was supposed to be done by Valentine's Day, but you know how that goes...  I finished it last month, but just now got around to framing it in a cute little 5x5 square frame I picked up at Michaels!
