Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2018

Jo of Serendipitous Stitching organizes one more time this year the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop. That means we stitchers who take part in it show what we have stitched Easter or Spring related and we also display a letter. If you hop all around the blogs that take part in this Easter treasure Hunt you will decode the phrase and leave a comment on Jo's blog post.
Enjoy the blog hop and hope you find the phrase.
This whole Treasure Hunt motivates me to stitch Easter themed items like this Easter bunny which I found as a free pattern in the blog The World According to Agi.
I turned it into an ornament. I also stitched the egg from Kathrin's Blog.She gave the pattern for free.I also made that into an ornament.Finally I made a small Mill Hill beaded egg into an ornament too.I had stitched this egg a long time ago but had never finished it.
And here they are decorated in my IKEA tree along with my Metropolitan Museum of Art eggs!
As Spring is here too I must also show you the March bookmark that I also recently finished .This is a Bucilla kit I am stitching as a picture.

For this Easter and as I am trying to use things I have in my craft cupboard I decided to use a packet of styrofoam eggs, two boxes of pins and several boxes of beads(payette) I had got at an exchange.
I made and remade all the eggs until they looked as I wanted them.





The final look!
As the Orthodox Easter is a week later than the Catholic one I have not yet decorated fully and haven't painted my eggs for this year yet. Therefore this post is not complete.
But I will have to post it today and give you the letter I have so that you can solve the phrase Jo has put.
                                                          My letter is I.(That's an i not an l)

And the blog after me to go on is this lovely one!
                                                      Aimetu's Stitching
So why don't you all hop along!
Have a great Easter!

Love all your stitched pieces! I “inherited” some of those flower sequins, couldn’t think that I’d ever use them, but your eggs look lovely, and you’ve given me some ideas now!
Thank you for the letter!
Wishing you a Happy Easter!
Hugs

Pretty stitched ornaments Ariadne and I like how each one has been finished making your Easter display attractive. The styrofoam eggs have turned out really impressive and are very decorative. Happy Easter.

Love your stitched bunny and egg ornaments. I normally don't give sequins a second look, but I may have to rethink that. Your sequin eggs are just lovely. Will be on the look out for some styrofoam eggs.

Υπέροχα τα κεντημένα σου Αριάδνη... το μπλε μου έκλεψε την καρδιά! Αλλά και τα άλλα με την λάμψη τους είναι διακοσμητικά για όλο τον χρόνο!

Wow, you've really been busy! I love your Easter tree, it is so beautiful especially because it displays both the decorations you treasure from the museum as well as the ones you lovingly created yourself. The stitching projects you did are so beautiful! xx

Νόμιζα ότι είχα αφήσει σχόλιο εδώ γιατί μου άρεσαν πάρα πολύ τα πασχαλινά σου στολίδια Αριάδνη μου.
Εφέτος δεν πρόλαβα να κάνω εκτός από ένα που το έκανα τώρα.
Μια βόλτα από το μπλογκ μου και θα πάρεις κάτι από εκεί.
Περιμένουμε ρεπορτάζ από το Ναύπλιο.
Να είσαι καλά και φιλάκια πολλά.
