Easter Blog Hop 2015



Hi friends! Hello to new friends! I am glad to have you here.
Today's post is all about the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2015. I have been taking part of Jo's Blog Hops for several years now. If you do not know what I am talking about, have a look HERE. That link will take you to Jo's blog. She has a list of all the participants blogs in order. You just need to visit everyone on the list in order to retrieve a letter. Write the letters down in order, and you will come up with a short Easter Phrase. You then return to Jo's blog and receive the last letter and you need to comment there telling her the phrase. You just may win her giveaway!

I stitched this piece, called Spring String by Lizzie Kate, last month. Sorry to say I still have not done the finishing on it. I will! Soon. I have just been very busy making gift after gift for special sharing friends!
 
 I did stitch some spiderweb roses in pale pink on a pink burlap wired ribbon yesterday. I was feeling very painful and not very happy yesterday, due to the cortisone shot I just received in my left hip joint. So I decided to make the concrete Mabel on the front porch a Springtime bow. Henry's dapper bunny bowtie is still in good shape. Mabel's bow from last year faded out terribly from the sun.
The letter you have come to retrieve here is E. You now must go visit our friend Anne to find your next letter in the phrase. Have fun!

Thanks for stopping in today! Leave me a message please. I love to meet new friends! I always want to hear from old friends! :)

My pain is slightly less today. I would be happy to just return to how I was pre-shot at this point.

A Blessed Easter to you!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Thanks for taking part in the Easter Treasure Hunt this year. My hops started in 2011 with the Advent Calendar! I'm so happy they are still going strong and as popular as ever.

Your bookmarks are so sweet, great little presents. I also love your Spring decorations for the model Henry and Mabel.

Looking forward to seeing the L*K finished, you can use it again for next year's treasure hunt!
