Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2018

I decided to join in with Jo from Serendipitous Stitching and her Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop this year. To be a part of the fun all you do is start from Jo's blog and write down the letter that each blog is featuring to make this year's Easter Treasure Hunt phrase. When you figure out the phrase you should comment on Jo's blog:) So much fun!!!

My featured letter is:

I didn't end up getting anything new finished up in time for this blog hop, but I did 'finish/finish' a piece that I stitched up last year.

This is 'Carrots' By SubRosa. It was a free design created last spring for anyone purchasing another design in her Esty shop. I can't find it in her shop now, but maybe if you asked really nice she will add it at some point:)
 The chart came with instructions on making a pouch and felt carrots to go into the pouch.

The pouch was to have a green felt fringe on the top edge of it, but I didn't have the right shade of green felt so I left it off. I thought it would be fine, but it seems a little bare on the top, so I might try to track down some in the right shade and add it on. Also I think it needs a way to hang the pouch as it pretty much has to sit flat the way it is, but that can be fixed too:)

The next blog to visit is:

Happy Blog Hopping!!!

Craft On: Spring Away

Linking with Nicole of Frontier Dreams

It's been a good long while since I've posted, maybe a month? I think the winter cold got to me a little this year and I needed a bit of a tech break. We do not live where all the snow has been, in fact we had been completely dry here up until a week or so ago when we started getting the spring rains. We are cloudy with drizzle and on the cold-ish side of things today. We really need the rain, so I don't mind:)

I have been knitting and stitching a little here and there, though not as much as I would have liked. I am still working on the same projects I was the last time I posted:)

Cloud Wrap from Curious Handmade:
 Sockhead Slouch Hat from Kelly McClure
I love, love, love how the Cloud Wrap is turning out. The color and the little puckers are just perfect!! The hat is a little less exciting as this is the third one I've made and it is a lot of repetitive knitting, but perfect for tv watching and even though it is mostly black (daughter's choice), I do like the bursts of blue in it:) I thought I wouldn't get it done before the warm weather hit, but I think it'll be done by next week and we still have chilly weather in the forecast - though thankfully not below freezing!!

I'm off to eat lunch, knit a bit more and get some chores done!! Have a lovely day!!
