Baked Donuts and an Easter Round Up

Palm Sunday and Holy Week are here! It's hard to believe, but we are over halfway through April. We do our choir cantata on Palm Sunday so that was this morning. After church, we made some yummy baked donuts using this recipe. Delicious! We got these pans for Christmas and this is the first time we used them. Will definitely be making them again.

I can't believe all of the wonderful Easter resources that are available for free! Unit plans for parents and teachers, printables, and more. Here are just a few of the ones I am hoping to use this week:
Would love to hear about your Easter traditions! Leave me a comment.

My daughter's dress is almost done - hope to share a pic before she wears it. Oh and one more week left with no fabric buying...which is a good thing, because this DS Quilts fabric is calling my name. (We have 3 bolts at our Joann Fabric; I'm hoping more arrives soon!) What would you all think of a little giveaway of her fabric sometime after Easter? Let me know and have a blessed Holy Week remembering His sacrifice.

I'm linking up!

Springtime Sewing

I haven't posted in awhile, but have been busy sewing! Mom and I decided not to buy any new fabric during Lent, so we've both been working on projects from fabric in our stash, which I've enjoyed immensely. Lots of times one of us will make something and then give the scraps to the other - which often turn into a mug rug, tea wallet, or other small item. Super fun!

I've made a couple of messenger bags as birthday presents, some pieced and quilted tabletoppers for our home out of Meadowsweet 2 (purchased at Sewtropolis), and two skirts and a pair of ruffled pants for my daughter. I have loved making the clothes for my daughter - and she likes wearing them. One skirt used Jennifer Paganelli's Dance with Me and second skirt is a combination of Alexander Henry's Starling in pink and Amy Butler's Martini dot in pink and orange.
Next up? An Easter dress for my daughter and a skirt for me...I am procrastinating on these because I am afraid they won't turn out, the dress especially! I also have a new mug rug cut and ready to sew up this weekend. I bought an adorable bicycle stamp that I can't wait to make into cards!

In other exciting news, we hit 300 sales in the shop! We are thrilled - look for a fun giveaway coming up soon.

I'm linking up here and here today - check out what everyone else is working on and leave me a comment about your projects; I'd love to hear!
