Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop

Jo of Serendipitous Stitching organizes various cross stitch events and challenges in blog land.
At this time of year Jo organizes the Easter Treasure Hunt blog hop.
According to it the participants have to show something they stitched for Easter or Spring.
Then you will see a big beautiful letter. This letter when added to the rest that you will find in the other blogs that are taking part in the blog hop form a mystery phrase that you will have to find and write at Jo's blog in the comment section. Do not reveal the mystery phrase to my blog, only to Jo's comment section.
You will see my letter at the end of this blog post.
First you will see all the cross stitched things that I made this Easter.
I don't usually stitch Easter things or eggs but this year I started early due to an exchange in Kaye's of Kitten Stitching blog and therefore I stitched some for me too.
Here they are.
First the Easter rabbit I stitched for the exchange.The pattern is a freebie from Snowflower Diaries blog.I finished it in felt as a frame.
I also stitched my partner a card. Pattern found on pinterest.
Then I stitched two eggs for me. I found the patterns in my collection of patterns of Cross Stitcher magazine.
 After stitching them I mounted them on felt as ornaments and added a felt butterfly and a wooden flower.


 And as I liked the eggs I made some more. These are smaller and I found them on pinterest as Hama beads patterns. I was thinking of making them as ornaments too like the previous ones but I ended up to frame them as one picture at an IKEA frame.


This Easter  I also stitched this Easter lamb from La Comtesse & Le Point de Croix.
I gave this to a friend as a gift for her contribution as costume designer in a theatrical play.
 For a person who does not stitch at Easter that was quite a lot!
So here is my contribution to the blog hop, my letter is.....
                                       
Isn't this a lovely letter to stitch?
Now that you have seen mine go to the next blog.
                                                   It is Tiffstitches a blog.
Go visit all blogs to find the mystery phrase and put it as a comment in Jo's blog. Don't forget to leave comments in the blogs you visit. All stitchers deserve your appreciation comments.Good luck with all your blog hop and stitching!
Have a great Easter!

Ariadne, I love all your Spring and Easter stitching! You did accomplish a lot for someone who doesn't usually stitch this theme. I think your little sheep is my favorite.
