Easter Treasure Blog Hop 2022

Hello again blogging buddies! I hope I find you all well!

πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ™‹‍♀️πŸ™‹‍♀️πŸ™‹‍♀️πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

And it’s time to join Jo of Serendipitous Stitching once again for her annual Easter Blog Hop. The idea is that we all show some Spring or Easter stitching and you collect a letter from each participant to form a phrase. You will find the list of all the other participants over at Jo’s blog here

I don’t usually stitch Easter pieces but this year I kept finding lovely patterns I couldn’t wait to stitch! Alas, as usual, I started too late so I didn’t stitch as many as I wanted to. To start with I visited Melissa of Pinker n Punkin where, if you’ve already encountered Melissa’s blog you will know she shares lots of her beautiful embroidery and cross stitch free patterns. I am still stitching “A Basket of Spring” and already she has newer patterns she is sharing with us!

A basket of spring

I did finish two Easter cards - next year I need to start earlier 😁 These were another free pattern this time from The Merry Needle - a "new to me" blog! She has other free patterns too, but I've yet to investigate those.

Spring Springing


And here is my letter, sadly I only decided to stitch one yesterday, so predictably its not finished!


and so, in case you cant tell, it's an "E" .......... It's such a cute pattern.


Now you need to visit the next blogger on the list, the lovely Sheryl at Sewing After Seven


Have a lovely Easter!

Big Hugs,

Barbara xx

Thanks for taking part in the Easter Hop this year. Those are very cute freebies, I'll have to check the sites out.
Should I make a note for you to have E next year so you can use the completed letter?
