It's that time again for the Easter Hunt Blog hop, hosted as always by the indefatigable Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching. If you're just starting out on the hunt, you may want to go to her page here and start at the beginning. If you're on the hunt already, here is your letter:

I don't stitch many spring related things, but one of my favourites was this little one from last year: Hop by LK on 28 ct Realgar by Chromatic Alchemy with stash threads Happy Easter everyone!
Time to update my WIPs! I hope everyone has had a good weekend and had as much stitching time as they wished. We've had a busy time as DD turns 4 tomorrow. She seemed to have a blast this weekend, so that's what matters. I did get a little stitching done, although having a cold and a major migraine episode this week did slow me down a little.
There's a fair bit of confetti in the leaves of this one and I'd like to try and get the top done first, so I'm working more there first. I haven't done much with Fishing lately, but I hope to get that out this week. With luck I'll get them both finished up in a couple weeks. I haven't been able to do any of the No X November stitching that Theme-tas-stitch has set as the theme, but I have this one in mind for a friend.

Again, I've been doing more knitting than stitching this past month. Part of that is the heat had really set in and it was too hot to stitch because I'm always worried about sweaty hands, but knitting is a little more forgivable that way. I had also signed up for a couple KALs (knit-a-longs), so used the time to work on things for that.
However, I did get out one stitching project last month!

The top post is a little more true to the fabric colour, not sure why the front legs look darker though, same thread, WDW Okeefeenokee, is the same throughout. I think it was a new skein though, so maybe different dyelot.
I was doing well until the heat and humidity stuck around for a week, I c…
