Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop

Good Morning friends! I am taking part in the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop this year. You can learn all about it, and find out where the Hunt begins, by going to Jo's blog. Each of us in the Hunt are sharing an Easter or Spring stitched finish with you. Here is mine.
I stitched this when I was 18 years old. :) This is simply titled "May", because it is from God's In His Heaven, a pattern book by Gloria & Pat. There is a different pattern for each month of the year. I had this framed about 10 years after I stitched it. Then it hung in Madeleine's room for many years.

Each of us participating in this Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop were assigned a letter. If you visit Jo's blog to find out where to begin, then you can hop from blog to blog, collecting letters as you go. You will end up with the Mystery Phrase. :) My letter is  S. You need to visit Gracie's blog next to continue on in order, and solve the mystery!

I will be back on Easter to share two finishes with you. I took a break from Theotokos to make two Easter projects. They involve cross stitch, embroidery and sewing.
If I don't hear from you for a while, I want to wish you a Blessed Easter right now!

Beading and praying,
Vickie
