The hippety hoppety Easter blog hop

Hello everyone

So today is the Easter blog hop hosted by Queen of the blog hop Jo at Serendipitous Stitching

The Easter blog hop will have you hopping all over the bloggersphere to find the mystery Easter phrase. I'm guessing a lot of you are here as I'm first on the list. Don't forget to hop back to Jo's blog to leave the mystery phrase at the end. (If you are here because you read my blog and have no idea what is going on - Jo has all the run down and why aren't you following Jo!)

So here is my Easter picture. I decided to stitch a little Spring design freebie from Lizzie Kate in the recommended DMC. threads and with pink buttons from my stash as shown on the chart, stitched on 28ct DMC Evenweave. I picked up the frame for a bargain in Clinton Cards for 99p! That was the day I got £34 worth of very nice small frames for less than £4. I wish I'd brought more!


Here it is with my little Spring/Easter display - the two cushions and spring book are from Steph, the felt sheep from the other Steph, I stitched the toadstool biscornu and Laura stitched the Easter and snail ones


and what you've all been waiting for....

My letter is...

And now you need to hop over to Ariadne's blog for the next letter. 

Have a lovely Easter and I'll be back for GG tomorrow. 
Happy stitching

  1. Thanks for kicking off the Easter Blog Hop this year with your lovely display. Those frames are awesome, I would have bought a batch too.
    I like the way you've added the buttons, I have some of the tiny ones a lovely someone sent me. I will use them in a similar way when I find the right design!
