Easter Treasure closed. Winners to be announced on Sunday 15th

appearing here soon.  It's half past midnight and I've only just finished beading my piece so I will post the full hunt in the morning.

My stitching time didn't start until 10.30 because I had to make a real egg hunt for the Large Boy complete with clues!

Watch this space...

Card made by The Large Boy, note the egg and cross graphics in the top letters

Still watching?  Here it is:

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 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:

Nia of Caixinha de Pirlimpimpim then onto
McKenna of Chic Crafting (or should that be "chick crafting" for Easter?)
Measi and Measi's Musings
Heather says It's Geek to Me
Mel writes The Daily Mel
C in DC of Pencil Crossings
Christine in The Alchymyst's Study
Anna the Stitch Bitch
Gracie of Needles, Pins and Dragonflies (Madame Muriel's new host, I wonder if she's there yet)
Shirlee is The Easily Influenced Stitcher
Beth of Beth's Blog
Deb is The Thread Gatherer
Mouse writes her Tales of a Stitching Mouse and then finally back to
Me! Phew!

Here's the final picture of the hunt:


This is Dewdrop by Just Nan, mounted on a scrapbook page with the ribbon Jan wrapped the parcel in.
Last year Jan admired my Little Red Xmas House so I sent her the chart.  She thanked me by adding another chart to my Just-Nan-a-thon!  Perfect for this Easter Hunt.
Stitched on 28count evenweave with several substituted colours including the rabbit's browns.  I blended two browns to make his fur.  I also used variegated greens for the border.  I'm pleased with the way the beads have caught the light in this photo, makes staying up late to stitch them worth the time!

And Finally, Happy Birthday Susan in your Yellow Flower Meadow:
I've been stitching the WOCS' Flower of the Month series for the Birthday club on Needlecraft Haven but we didn't have an April Birthday so I asked for volunteers among my followers.  Susan obliged and received a Daisy for April.  This time I coloured in the background using my pens rather than the flower, making an assisi style card.  Needlecraft Haven have covered the next few months but I have a space for August so if you're an August Baby then let me know!

Happy Hunting!

gracie said...

I visited all and think it is Chocolate Bunny! Is it??? I think I am the first to guess.....

Ana said...

What a lovely blog you have here. Happy Easter!


Vickie said...

Hooray for chocolate bunny! I am ashamed to admit I worked on one last week and ate the whole thing as of yesterday! tee hee A happy, Blessed Easter to you!

Deb said...

I think that the solution to the puzzle is "Chocolate Bunny".

Shirlee said...

Okay Jo ... I was worried that my comment was going to show up since I saw a few posted ... lol! A very Happy Blogaversary to you & a very Happy Easter as well! Not everyone has posted yet but I know the phrase! It is CHOCOLATE BUNNY : ) Very cute! Are you enjoying another one of those huge chocolate eggs? If so, I wish I was there to help you eat it : )

Christine said...

I'm back! Love the JN bunny finish.
There are three clues not up yet, but cunning wordsmith that I am, I think I'm safe to say the mystery phrase is "Chocolate Bunny". Unless, of course, it is "Cricolate Funny", in which case I said it first ;D

Lelia said...

Happy Easter


What fun, I enjoyed the hunt + blog hop : )

WoolenSails said...

Well, once someone guess it, then everyone will know, lol. Some of the sites did not have a letter yet, but I figured it out, Chocolate Bunny.

Since I did one comment that you can post, I will do the second one that you can hold. The treasure hunt phrase is Chocolate Bunny!!!! It was fun. I left messages on all of the blogs and I am going to go back now and become followers of the ones that I don't already follow. Including yours. It was so nice to meet you during your fun little hunt. Looking forward to reading your blog now that I will be a follower. Happy Easter!!!
