Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2018

Happy Easter everybody!

Today I am joining the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2018, organised by the lovely Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.

There is a great line up of blogs for you to visit ..... where we each show some Easter or Spring stitching ..... and you can collect the letters from each blog to make up a line from a poem.


oooooooo

My stitching is a sampler, the vase is from The World of Cross Stitch  “Design Library” Issue 266, using their colours. This took a little longer to stitch than anticipated, as usual, and I couldn’t decide what border to stitch which meant I was still stitching last night! Oops!

The pictures look a bit dark, but that's mainly because the fabric is light green, it doesn't photograph very well, which is a shame because I've got lots more of that fabric to use!


The Flashing Scissors
Fabric is a lovely pale green!
..... impossible to show the colour!
The border was from Issue 73. I wasn’t sure what colours to use, but I think these looking fine!?!

And most of you will probably know this little guy is the freebie from WOCS Issue 266.

My travel stitching - not quite finished! Needs outlining
and there is a branch with leaves to add.

But this is what you've come for, my letter is “W”.

To find the next letter in the phrase go to:


Happy hopping, and thank you for visiting!

Have a very Happy and Stitchy weekend!




Hugs,
Barbara xxx

  16. Purple and yellow - traditional Easter colours.
    Light green, as well as many other colours are difficult to photograph.
    The design is charming.
    Wishing you a Happy Easter.
