Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

So pleased you have stopped by today especially if you are taking part in the Easter Treasure Hunt blog hop hosted by Jo at SerendipitousStitching.  Have fun by starting at Jo´s blog where the participants are listed, visit in order the blogs mentioned and collect letters which will spell out a mystery phrase.

We are asked to share some Spring or Easter themed stitching and I have been working on these little decorative birdies .


I wanted to make a mixture of blue and yellow birds but surprisingly I couldn´t find any  yellow fabric, not in stash or scrap bags, so apart from a few splashes of yellow gingham, the birds are all blue ones.

I added some bling to the wings, mainly beads, lace or tulle and  plan to make some brighter more exotic birds during the year, maybe some Cardinals for Christmas. 

A long time has passed since I did any ribbon embroidery so when I saw a pretty pattern offered by Carol Daisy, I thought I would try my hand at making this small bag.  The pattern  can be found here.

And here is the letter you have come to find.

Your next stop is with Beth at Beth´s Needlework Stash

Happy Easter to everyone.

I found the pattern for the birds, although I altered the pattern a bit, here.

  1. Birds are singing in the garden all day long, what a joy to hear them. Yours are prettier in their blue suits. I love your Saintpaulia display a lot and the way you always finish with pearls and lace your sewing. Thank you for the letter. Ribbon embroidery is still on my wish list, your bag looks so elegant. Joyeuses fêtes de Pâques ! Felices Pascuas ! Love

  2. Birds always make me think of spring, even though I feed them all year. The extra details really make them special.

  3. YOur birds are just the cutest, crafty birds I have ever seen!!! I just adore them and would love to make some. Where did you find the pattern? I love the blue and yellow combo and their cute blue beaks!! You are so creative!!!

    The bag is so pretty, I have 2 ribbon embroidery books that I bought as I always mean to give a try but it looks intimidating...your bag is so sweet!!
