Easter holidays started lovely here for us. DD and our granddaughter took us to see the new Peter Rabbit movie on Good Friday. It was their treat and afterwards they gave us a lovely box of Lindt mini bunnies as I reminder of our outing.
We enjoyed the movie, but I have to say, I prefer the original Peter Rabbit, he's just so cute and this Peter was a bit of a naughty rabbit in more ways than one!
Today, Easter Sunday, April 1st (my late dads birthday) and it means opening day for the Needlecraft Haven Easter exchange.
I sent to Justine, here's what was in my parcel :-
I found the little tuck hanger in my stash when looking for something and thought Justine might like to stitch something to go into it for next Easter. The chocolate treat was doubled so she was able to share with her two boys.
The stitching design I chose came from this The Prairie Schooler booklet
Here's a close up of my finish
The parcel I received came from Christine. Such a different finish and I had only commented on her blog yesterday that I loved a similar one she had made for the Easter blog hop over at Jo's.

Thank you Christine, I love my Easter parcel x
Time also for my 'What did i do last month?' post as we have entered another month, the fourth of the year.
I had 5 finishes - 3 different bunny ones, the westies bookmark and a lovely knitted scarf.
I've got 2 stitching WIP's to carry forward - 1. Needlecraft Haven monthly challenge from March, stitching is completed I just need to make it up and 2. Blue Ribbon designs 'A Friend Indeed and there is a pair of socks on the knitting needles.
March's re-visited children's books was Justine's choice and she went for Heidi. I read this such a long time ago, it was lovely to re-read it again. I also read three other titles in March.
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter, I hope you are spending time with those you love.
Love and blessings to you all
