Post Easter

I am not exactly sure where the time goes but it does seem to fly by!!! My younger daughter is visiting this week and we're keeping busy with the grands on spring break, so this will be a quick post.

Last week I was busy making dresses for the girls to wear on our trip to the American Girl store and a gift for a baby shower. Here is a shot of the girls in their dresses. I tried to add a video of Cora doing a "twirl" but I couldn't get it to work. :(


They were very easy to make and a fun outcome!!! I wouldn't mind one for myself!!!

On the stitching front, I managed to get weeks 13-14 done on the Red Sampler Band SAL. I changed things up a bit and added these two weeks at the top...luckily I had left enough space. I also switched out the  ABC at the top with my initials and the numbers at the bottom with the year. I then stumbled across a chart that a designer was offering for free on a FB page. It had a nice "box" in the center of it with numbers. I put that on the banding where the original weeks 13-14 would have gone. 

I hope you are enjoying your Easter week and the weather is cooperating. Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Oh, what adorable dresses! The look so comfortable, too, Stasi :) And your sampler is growing nicely... Enjoy the rest of the week with your family.

  2. What excellent work on the dresses Stasi! The girls look very pleased. :D Your sampler looks great!

  3. The girls' dresses came out beautifully - they look so cute in them!

    Love the new bits on the band SAL, the top is very special (ooooh, and what's that rich deep red you used for the side bits in the top and frame in the lower portion?).

  4. The box with the numbers is so cute. As well as the girl's dresses...adorable.

  5. The dresses are adorable. What an awesome grandmom you are. You are doing great keeping up with the red band sampler.

  6. The girls look so happy with their new threads!! Nice adaptation to your red band sampler.
