Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2017

Welcome to this year's Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop!


I have a great line-up of blogs for you to visit and collect a letter from each one.  The letters will form a short phrase if you visit them in the listed order.  Or you can be clever and visit them out of order to get an anagram!  Remember time zones so some people may not have posted if you are hopping early in the day on the Eastern side of the Atlantic Ocean.



When you have finished hoppity-hopping and have the mystery phrase come back here and leave a comment.  All commenters will be entered into a prize draw, all picture posters get an extra entry and anyone who has already entered my Blogaversary giveaway (see previous post) gets an additional entry into that draw!

You have a week to enter this competition, I am moderating comments until the 21st April so you can't copy each other LOL.

I've been finish-finishing some Easter stitchings this week, I scrapbooked Lizzie*Kate's Easter Sampling as seen above and made a cube from San Man's Easter.  Here they are together:


And here is a side-view of the cube:

The backing and side fabric is an upholstery sample.  Several years ago a box of fabric sample books were dropped off at the church where I run my Toddler Group.  The cushion-makers took their pick and I got three books which were left.  This fabric cost £75 a metre according to the book!

Finally, we have a new Blogger of the Week so don't forget to hop over there and find out who it is this week.

Jo your stitching and finishing look awesome as always. This is Sarah Beth from originally sarahbethscross-stitchblog but it got hacked and I lost touch. Now it's Stsitching With Jesus. I've missed our comments if you haven't already I would love for you to join my new blog

Christine said...

Thanks for organising this again Jo, it's always fun!
There are only about half the letters at the moment but I think I've got it.
The start of TH_ EA_T had me barking up completely the wrong tree, but I'm going to go with Ralph Waldo Emerson and say that 'The earth laughs in flowers'

cucki said...

Ariadne said...

DJ said...

What a clever idea for the scrap booking! The box is also adorable...I love San Man designs! Thanks for organizing the blog hop. It's always fun to visit other blogs and see their stitching and ideas on finishing. But for me it's risky, because I see too many things I just HAVE to stitch...LOL!! I think I know the phrase..."The Earth Laughs In Flowers" Again, thanks for organizing this!

Rhona said...

Hello there again! My mum is a bit better and we were released from hospital because of Easter. I will spend the whole next week going around and seeing doctors with her. I needed some relaxation today and spent some time hopping around so here is the phrase "The Earth laughs in flowers". It was quite difficult for me as I didn't know it but it was great to read some poetry and relax too!Thank you for the blog hop and have a great Easter! Hugs AriadnefromGreece!

Kerryp77 said...

I'm back from my "letters hunt", was very fun again, surrounded by bunnies (I hope that bells which deliver eggs here will be generous tomorrow in the garden). Thank you for organizing. Happy Easter! Joyeuses Pâques !

So, now the result of my hunt : THE EARTH LAUGHS IN FLOWERS. Now I have to go back to my empty egg cup and stitch the bunny in it. Bises.

Leonore Winterer said...

As my home internet has been out since Friday (thankfully after I got my post up!) I had to rely on work internet and do a little hopping here and there in between. Now I finally finished the round, and I think the mystery phrase is 'The Earth Laughs in Flowers'!
Thanks for hosting another great blog hop. It was a lot of fun to visit everyone's blog and look at pretty spring stitching!
