Easter Swap, goodies & a stitchery

I had several parcels arrive yesterday which gave my day a nice boost as i'd spent it giving my kitchen a thorough cleaning. 1st parcel i opened was from Lisa who was my partner in the Tilda Easter swap. I asked for a hare as i already have a rabbit.

Lisa dressed him in red which i like & he matches my rabbit. :) Lisa also included a fabric egg as a surprise. Lots of yummy choccies in the bag which had a cute little peg with heart attached to enclose the bag. Thankyou again for the lovely gifts Lisa.
Also to arrive yesterday was some books i've been waiting for.

I had been eyeing this off for a while but not sure if i wanted it. I have seen a quilt made up from the book & would like to make it myself. Another hexie project. :)
I ordered this as soon as i knew it was released. This is a new series by Wanda Brunstetter. It's a series called Kentucky Brothers.
I've been reading about Pinmoors & decided to give them a go. They also arrived this week. I've yet to try them out.

And i did this little stitchery the other night. It's from a lovely little Easter bag by Dawn. Hopefully i'll have time this week to finish it before Eaters since i'm spending most days Autumn cleaning the house.

Happy Stitching,

I love your Easter hare and the little bunny stitchery is very cute. Your books look interesting and I have never seen pinmoors. They look intriguing.

How exciting for you receiving all those goodies! Your Easter bunny is adorable. I have never heard of pinmoors. I googled them to learn what they're all about. You must let us know how you like them.
