Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2016

Welcome to the 2016 Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop.

Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop
Just Nan - Dewdrop Bunny

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 for the last letter and leave a comment saying what the phrase is.  I am offering the chart for Lizzie*Kate's Sampling Easter as a prize this year so if you are a no-reply commenter, please make sure I can contact you somehow.

All the picture posters will get an extra entry into the draw if they are interested in the chart too.  Please make it clear if you want to be in the draw!

The trail starts with me this year:

T


and then goes on to the following blogs in order:


and back to me, hopefully with the answer!


This design is Sampling Easter by Lizzie*Kate which I won in Justine's recent giveaway.  I stitched it on 14 count yellow aida using a lovely Jodyri thread called Crystal Seas.  I added a little charm of a bunny from my stash (probably from Ang's Attic).

I don't have much Easter themed stitching so I am looking forward to seeing what everyone shows this year to inspire me!

Amy said...

Ariadne said...

geeky Heather said...

Well, you have about 5X the stitched Easter pieces I do!! =D What fun this hop was...due to we slackers across the pond (yes, I am including myself) who post so "late", there were a few missing letters when I hopped, and as I was trying to do it in my head rather than writing things down, I was very confused by all these "K's"... Once I wrote it down with blanks in the appropriate places, I saw where you were going by the "A"...you clever girl. =) I'm guessing you're going to do a delicious informative post for the reveal...can't wait! Happy Easter to you and thank you again for another great hop!

Cathy said...

I just completed the blog hop and enjoyed seeing all the spring stitching and finding new blogs to follow.

The phrase is "The Ukranian Pysanka Egg" and I would be interested in being put in the drawing for the chart. (I learned a new word, too.)

Bea said...

Those are lovely Easter stitches - and you have done more than I have! I'll be back.

LOL Wow that took me awhile to figure out...The phrase is...The Ukranian Pysanka Egg. I had to look them up. They are beautiful!! Thanks so very much for hosting. What a fun time I had!!!

My guess is The Ukranian Pysanka egg.

I'll mark my calendar for next year.

Kathy H said...

I really enjoyed seeing everyone's Easter decorations. I don't have very many so maybe I could try some for next year. Thanks for the chance for the chart. The phrase is
The Ukrainian pysanka egg.

Bea said...

The phrase is The Ukranian Pysanka Egg. Have to admit I googled it as I wasn't sure exactly what it was. What gorgeous designs they create! Love the chart you're giving away, but not interested in being in the draw. Thanks.

Janet Yarwood said...

I read Kerry's blog and this sounded like fun. Looking forward to finding the letters and discovering lots of new blogs
That Chatelaine bunny is beautiful!

Vickie said...

Whew! I finally found all the letters. The Ukranian Pysanka egg. Create Jo! :D

Kaisievic said...

Hi Jo, Please count me in the draw as a picture poster as the phrase makes no sense to me! "The Ukranian PYSANKAEGG"????????? Did I miss something? lol! hugs, Kaye

Kaisievic said...

P.S. Happy Easter to you and your lovely family. lots of love Kaye xoxox

Linda Rumsey said...

That was a fun blog hop - lots of great stitching to admire! The phrase is "The Ukrainian Pysanka Egg"

Heather said...

Thanks for hosting another great blog hop, Jo.

I believe the winning phrase is: THE UKRANIAN PYSANKA EGG

I hope that's right. My spell check tells me it is wrong. :/

Heather said...

Beautiful stitching I love the San man design!

jocondine said...

Lovely stitched works, love the iceblue colors in your sampler. Ready for the blog hop, I'll be back with my basket full of letters. Joyeuses Pâques

Cross Stitch Claire said...

The Ukranian Pysanka Egg. I had to google to find out what they are! Thanks for arranging the blog, it was great fun.

rosey175 said...

Yay, this was a fun one! Not knowing any Ukrainian, that next word was such a strange concoction of letters! Your Chatelaine bunny is gorgeous and you certainly DO have a lot of Easter stuff! Please omit me for the draw. That tiny daffodil-like flower calls to me but I must resist.

I shall guess "A SWISS POCKET KNIFE" as the phrase!

...but really I know it is "The Ukranian Pysanka Egg" and I got to learn of something new! They are beautiful. Happy Easter to you and yours, ma'am and thanks for hosting these fun hops.

Renee said...

Jo, thanks for a great hop! I learned my something new when I Googled the phrase. :)

Aurelia Eglantine said...

Thanks for hosting such a fun Hop again this year :) It's a real treat to visit different blogs and see such lovely stitching. Your LK finish is so cute, the bunny charm is the perfect finishing touch! And your Easter stitcheries are wonderful; I especially like the way you finished the four little eggs into pretty cards. Happy Easter :)
