Rabbits, Bags, Quilts and Crumble

We seem to have quite a few rabbits on our garden. They pop out at all hours of the day. There were 4 at lunch sitting on the lawn the other day. So far they have kept out of the vegie patch (lucky for them). They have inspired some rabbit sewing.
I was in the mood for a little bag sewing too this week.
The flower kisses quilt is still a WIP and I thought I would try the blocks a different way in a different colour combination.
It might not look that exciting, but this is the second time this week I have made peach and blackberry crumble. We are in peach heaven at the moment. The tree is full of them and I managed to get some blackberries off the bush that is growing in the middle of the rose bushes on top of an ant hole. I used the topping from Stephanie Alexander's The Cook's Companion. Delicious.

Love the rabbit's polka dot face, reminds me of freckles and the orange flower, looks like it's blooming.
