I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2017

web image
Hi there! Welcome to my part of the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop for 2017..... This is another brilliant blog hop organised by Jo (Serendipitous Stitching)... I have enjoyed taking part over the last couple of years and this year is no exception!

The blog hop is very simple indeed, takes no time at all to participate... and is a great reason to spend the weekend catching up on blogs while eating chocolate and hot cross buns! ;o)

So what do we blog hoppers need to do?  Post a picture of something we have stitched that relates to Easter or Spring, add in the Mystery letter somewhere in the post... and then link to the next person in the blog hop!  Simples! Right? Yep... so let's get on with the hop...

My stitching picture is a brand new finish.... I have held off posting this finish for a couple of weeks just so I could use it for the blog hop...

Easter Card
Freebie - Cross Stitcher Magazine, Issue #42
This sweet card is actually for an Easter Exchange so fingers crossed the recipient has received it before she sees it on my blog....  The original kit included a plain yellow card which I was going to embellish with ribbon... but I didn't really like the card colour so I went for a shopping trip in my stash boxes... and, in my stash of card blanks I found this lovely set of spring styled cards - which I think worked so much better than the plain card (hope my exchange partner likes it)

Ok... so that is the Easter/Spring inspired stitching... now onto what you are all looking for - the mystery letter!

So, now that you have collected the letter "N" from me... you need to hop along to the next blog on the list (link below) and collect more letters til you have the mystery phrase.

The final step after visiting all the blogs, collecting the letters and working out the mystery phrase is to hop over to Jo's blog and leave a comment with what the mystery phrase is. Can't wait to find out what it is going to be this year :o)

Ok... so where are you going to next?  Click on the image below and you will find yourself visiting with DJ at Tickled Pink in Stitches.


Say hi to DJ for me.... Enjoy the blog hop and don't forget to collect your letters and head over to Jo's blog to leave a comment with the mystery phrase.


Til next time, happy stitching!
Happy Easter to you all
Hugs xx

Thanks for taking part in the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop this year.
Love the Easter card, that's an old magazine! I have some of the early ones too. I love the replacement card mount, much more suitable for the stitching.
