Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

Today I´m taking part in the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop organised by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching.  Start at Jo´s blog and then hop from blog to blog collecting letters which will form a phrase.  When you know what the mystery sentence is, go back to Jo and leave a comment telling her what the phrase is.

All participants in this blog hop have to show a piece of Easter or Spring needlework and I stitched a pattern by Christiane Dahlbeck with the idea of making egg shaped candy holders.



I made three, changing the colour of the vase and flowers in each pattern, so as to match scraps of fabric from stash that I wanted to use.




I also saw a decorative hen at Iniana polka and decided to make one as a hideaway for more Easter eggs as I had a little basket which would fit perfectly under the hen.  I roughly cut out a pattern and followed the instructions.



I sent the hen and Easter eggs to my grandchildren which I hope they will like and went on to repair, not repair so much as do some alterations to a very old quilt I made many years ago.


but that is for another post, today you are here for a letter and here it is.


For your next letter, hop off to Astrid at astridxstitching.

Happy Easter.
Sheryl
