Sign up here for my Blogaversary Easter Treasure Hunt!

I’ve been planning an interactive activity for Easter since we had so much fun with the Secret Stitching Sweethearts for Valentine’s Day.  Then I realised that my 1st Blogaversary is actually on Easter Sunday so I thought we’d have a little competition too.

The first category is for Picture Posters - bloggers who would like to post an Easter or Spring themed stitched picture on their blog on Easter Sunday.  Simply sign up now by leaving a comment on this post.  Make sure I can find your email and blog via your comment (eg you’re not a “no-reply”).  The closing date for signing up is Noon BST Maundy Thursday 5th April.

When I know how many people we have I will send you each an email confirming that you are taking part and assigning you a letter of the alphabet.  This is very important as the letters will spell out a word or phrase for the Treasure Hunters to find.  On Easter Sunday post your letter with your Easter / Spring picture on your blog with a link to my blog so people know what it’s all about.

The second category is for Treasure Hunters.  They can be bloggers or just followers, if you’re a Picture Poster then you can be a Treasure Hunter too, you have a tiny advantage in that you know one letter!

Treasure Hunters must come to my blog on (or just after) Easter Sunday where there will be a list of all the Picture Posters in order.  Visit each blog noting down the letter displayed there (leave a comment too, it’s a nice thing to do).  The letters will spell out a word or phrase.  Come back to my blog and leave me a comment stating what the word or phrase is.  If you visit the blogs out of order then you’ll have an anagram to solve, but why make it hard on yourself?!

Blog Owner approval will be enabled from Easter Sunday until the end of the competition (I’ll give you all a week to get your entries in) so you can’t copy the girl in front.  LOL.  Sneaky, aren’t I?

There will be a prize for each category, something stitched by me with an Easter/Spring theme depending on what tempts me.  Anyone who wishes me a Happy Blogaversary gets a bonus entry in their category.  Because thoughtfulness deserves a reward.  Anyone who sends cake through the post gets two extra goes.  Because cake deserves a reward too.  That last one is a joke, not sure how well cake travels around the world!

So off you go, think of what’s in your collection you could post and sign up here for the fun.

Finally, the Eggs are just a couple of the mega eggs my hubby has given me for Easter in the past.  We had a members card for a wholesaler’s warehouse and those eggs were intended as raffle prizes for pubs and clubs to buy.  Hubby obviously decided I needed feeding up!
