Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2019

As I did last year I am participating again in the Easter treasure hunt blog hop organised by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching. What you do is to hop all around the blogs that take part and see the Easter or Spring stitching they have done. Also you should collect all the letters that each blog gives to find a phrase. Once you have it you should go back to Jo's blog and leave a comment with the phrase.There is until Friday May 3rd.
I saw in April’s issue of Just Cross Stitching a embroidery tray design. Obviously I am not going to do any tray but I thought the design was nice for framing. It is a design from Anna Chinotto of La Bottega delle Meraviglie di Anna. I stitched it in Aida Rustic Oatmeal 18 count and used most of the call for threads, I substituted some of them. I framed it over a baby pink felt and I made the borders thread finged.




I love the small detail of the bow on the rabbit and the sheep, it is really cute……




I want to end this post showing a close up detail in that embroidery, the french knots. I have been trying to make them for years and only now I can only say that……. I KNOW HOW TO DO IT!!!!!!!!!! I am extremely excited and happy, I thought I could never do them.




The letter I am going to give is......



And the next blog you should go to get the phrase is Le Coeur Celtique. I didn't know that blog but I got surprised with it, not only for the content but also because it looks like mine.
