I'm Back.......(336, 337, 338,339)

It's been a rough few days but we are glad we went to say our goodbyes. It was tough to do, but I'm so glad we made the trip. Thank you for all your kind comments and understanding.

I'm going to post the past three days and today's Stroll pieces all in this one post, so I can get caught up. Bear with me since it may be photo heavy and not much chit-chat! :)

First up is Sweet Little Blossoms, a Merry Cox class I took in 2010.

Presentation Bag

 Next up is Bunny Garden Needleroll by Praiseworthy Stitches, done in 2011. This kit came in the cute little plastic carrot and I keep it rolled up and stored in there.

Next is my last Stroll piece for November and it was stitched for a very special little girl, our granddaughter Cora. It is her birth sampler by La-D-Da and is called This is the Day, stitched in 2010. 

Last, but not least, is my first Stroll piece of December. I plan to focus on Christmas pieces for this month...go figure! So, here is A Year in Chalk-December by Hands on Design. The picture on the right is how they are displayed. I found the easel at Hobby Lobby and covered the back with the chevron fabric. I have velcro attached to that and the back of each monthly design, so my daughter switches them out easily.


It feels good to be back in the saddle again...thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!

  1. I am sorry you had such a rough trip Stasi. Your pieces you shared today are beautiful.

  2. What lovely pieces you shared today! While I am glad you are back, I am sorry that you had to say good bye to your friend. Thinking of you.

  3. Dear Stasi I am so sorry it was a trip to say goodbye to your friend. I know how hard that is but you did the right thing in making the trip.

    All of your stitching is truly piece prettier than the next. Thank you for taking the time to show us so many beautiful pieces after such a rough trip. We are glad you are home again. RJ

  4. Stasi, I'm playing catch up too, I'm glad you safely home and I can't imagine how painful it was to say goodbye to a dear friend. I'm quite sure the visit was very much appreciated by the family.

    Merry Cox is becoming a favorite of mine, I love her designs and you have executed them all so beautifully. I love Cora's birth sampler. I want to try stitching on black, I'm attracted to the chalkboard stitches. Great idea so your daughter can switch them out easily.

    Still putting my vote in for Hawk Run Christmas.
