Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2013 Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop.


All you have to do is visit each of these blogs in order, note down the letter above the Easter / Spring themed pic and remember the short phrase they make up.  Come back here after the last letter and leave a comment saying what the phrase is.  I will select one person at random to win a small stitched prize.  I will also randomly select one of the Picture Posters to win a stitched prize too.

The trail starts here with:

D

and then goes onto:



Comment moderation has been turned on for the duration of this competition which closes on the 8th April, my Blogaversary and also the Birthday of at least two of my favourite Followers!

And here's the story behind the Bunny picture above:

Once upon a time there was a blog that held an Easter Treasure Hunt Blog in the Olden Days of 2012.  Two winners were chosen and one received a lovely prize in due course.  The other did not!  I finally stitched the chart I had chosen for Christine and made it into a cute little pocket.  (Anything to avoid sewing four corners of a pillow!).  I bught a selection of Easter choccies and therein found the second problem shown below:


How do you fit a quart into a pint pot?

Fortunately, the Large Boy was on hand to solve the problem - eat them!

Sorry Christine, I hope your girls have left you some of the survivors!

The design is a freebie from Chatelaine Designs, Yes I have finally stitched my first Chatelaine!  Not quite one of the Mandalas but a good start nevertheless.

Finally, have a Great Easter break, enjoy the competition and Good Luck to you all.

That's a really cute bunny. Surprised it's a Chatelaine. It looks like one of JBW's. I was going to say I had it! But I guess not.

gracie said...

Love the bunny! Looking forward to traveling around tomorrow!

Christine said...

I love my pocket, and the girls have been warned off the chocolate on pain of death. I have it counted!
Off now to hop some blogs

Linda said...

A beautifully stiched Easter Bunny. Happy Easter.

Lesley said...

That is a very pretty Easter Bunny design.

I do enjoy hopping from blog to blog and searching the letters and seeing all these cute stitiching finshes.
Thanks for this sun at a bad day for me. You made my day with this hunt.
I have now two words. Is this the finish of the hunt or will there be more letters the next days? Have a nice Easter
Love
Judith/Germany.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Hi Judith, you are a no reply person so I hope you read this here.
There are just two words over the 16 blogs, no more to be added. Just leave another comment with your guess and that won't appear until the end of the competition.
Good luck, glad it brightened your day xxx

Musicwoman said...

Hi Jo, thanks for your quick answer and the hunt really made my day. Many thanks for this opportunity and your idea.
My guess is:

Dancing Daffoldils

And here is my e-mail: michael-luecke@web.de

Have a nice day
Love
Judith/Germany

Emma/Itzy said...

Thank you for hosting the blog hop - I would loved to have taken part but time just seems to have slipped away from me this month, I mean, Monday and we are in APRIL?!?!

But I have had fun hopping around all the blogs, and discovered a few new ones to me in the process :)

The Easter phrase is : Dancing Daffodils !

Parsley said...

This was fun and a great way to connect with others and follow new to me blogs.

Some things were missing but I think I came up with the words...

Dancing Daffodils!

Happy Easter!

gracie said...

Dancing Daffodils?

Linda said...

Another fun blog hop Jo. The answer - Dancing Daffodils

Thanks,

Linda

StitchingBea said...

Neat idea ... great way to visit blogs you hadn't seen before.

Found the 2 words (although 1 blogger didn't seem to participate - there was not Easter picture or letter) but the phrase is: DANCING DAFFODILS

HAPPY EASTER !

CalamityJr said...

What fun! DANCING DAFFODILS is what you had us searching for!

CalamityJr said...

What fun! I love how the Large Boy thinks; he's my kind of guy! Thanks for the favorite follower comment - at least, I'm going to assume you meant me, lol.

Now, to wander lonely as a cloud...

Kaisievic said...

Love the bunny but when I went to Chatelaine's freebie site it is no longer up! :( Never mind. About to start on the blog hop now so I will be back with the phrase soon.

Thanks for hosting it.

hugs, Kaye

Felicia said...

What a fun scavenger hunt. It introduced me to several new-to-me blogs - so that was great.

The ever wonderful Dancing Daffodils is the clue. Great harbingers of spring!

Kaisievic said...

Hi again, Jo, I have enjoyed my blog hopping very much and I have made a few friends along the way. The phrase is "DANCING DAFFODILS".

Thanks for organising the blog hop.

hugs, Kaye

Dirty Martini Queen said...

Hi Jo and thanks so much for your sweet blog hop. I'm inspired to dig thru my stash for spring goodies after seeing everyone's wonderful stitches.
Hoppy Easter,

Dirty Martini Queen said...

Oh I forgot to tell you the phrase:
Dancing Daffodils
And thanks again for a fun spring hop.
Donna

Vickie said...

I went online for one minute yesterday. I am glad I did. I scheduled the post, I thought. It did not work. Wanna teach me too?!
Rats! The freebie doesn't work anymore. I left a comment asking about it on the blog. It is so pretty.
Well, I am off to hop now that I am back on the computer. I'll be back!;)

Sandie said...

Hi Jo - that was fun! Dancing Daffodils

Thanks for organising that!

Vickie said...

Hi Jo! Dancing Daffodils. Cute. ;)
The designer got back to me. The pattern was only available for a while. That is all I was told. A Happy, Blessed Easter to you.

Lynn said...

I finally had a chance last evening to hop on over to all the blogs. Your mystery phrase is Dancing Daffodils.
They're something that I wish I could see in my garden right now if it weren't for all that snow!
Happy Easter!

cheryl said...
