Easter Blog Hop

The wonderful Jo has decided to host another Easter blog hop. If you've never heard of a blog hop let me try to explain. You head over to Jo's Blog to find out what blog you start on. You hop along like a little bunny rabbit collecting letters and enjoying all the different posts. At the end you will return to Jo's blog and tell her in a comment on the blog hop post what phrase you have collected. I've heard this is her longest blog hop. I'm really not surprised more people are joining in because they are just so much fun!!! What a way to explore the blog universe and maybe meet some new friends along the way. So let's get to why you are here...
The letter for this stop is R.
Next letter can be found at:

If you are still here I would like to share some recent Easter themed stitching I did. I love using these fun blog hops to make some seasonal pieces to display. This year's I even have finished finished them in time...
Mrs. Julie's bunny had to join in the picture. I recently found her a name. Harrietta. One website I looked for her name on said Harrietta was a name from England that meant Traveler and Explorer. Since she came from England and she has a suitcase because we love traveling how perfect for her right? Anyway Harrietta is helping show off my two new Lizzie Kate cube finishes. I rushed to finish them in time so don't mind the wrinkles. I'm pretty sure I will fix them later. This was a fast fix for now to get them on display for this Easter and this blog hop post. The fabric under them is what I have on the back.

We are going to have a laid back Easter here. Just the 4 of us. We will have goodies hidden for Jeremiah and us adult kids to find haha. Then we will feast on Ham, Turkey, Deviled Eggs, Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, and some yummy desserts. We will more than likely have a movie day and just enjoy resting. Happy Easter to all my readers. I hope you enjoy celebrating it however you decide to. Thanks for hopping by.

**Edited to add the end result**
The letters all added up to the first part of a haiku by Matsuo Bashō:

April's air stirs in 
Willow-leaves...a butterfly
Floats and balances
 
The bold part was the letters we all found while hopping along. What fun!
