A cat as a sunburst...a great concept and you have reworked it beautifully!

Phe-flippin'-nomenal work!! Cool

You need to go out of your comfort zone more often, they're just great!

I don't know if you have Meijer's stores in your corner of the planet, but they sell five-packs of flour sack towels for $4.99 that are actually a little nicer than the Aunt Millie's towels at Hobby Nazi, and those are only two-packs!

My little sister and I grew up on School House Rock, too! And I will definitely start a set for her after the holidays (her birtday is the end of Feb).

OMG, I've been embroidering flour sacks for going on 3 decades!   The best flour sack towels out there now (Oh how I miss the Ben Franklin chain) can be ordered at Taste of Home (Reiman Publications).  A little pricey but they're big, soft and thirsty...easy to embroider and they actually work cleaning dishes too!

ORANGE BLOSSOMS (no baking needed!)

1 12-ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white sugar
3 tbsp. corn syrup
1/2 cup orange  juice (frozen, concentrate or fresh)
2 1/2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
1 cup finely chopped nuts (I use pecans)

Melt over hot water (not boiling) chocolate chips.  Remove from heat, stir in sugar and corn syrup.  Add orange juice, mix until well blended.  Allow to cool slightly (about 5-8 minutes), then add vanilla wafers and nuts, stir until well combined.

When mixture is cool enough to handle, form into one-inch balls; roll in colored sugar, chocolate jimmies or my personal favorite, NesQuik!

Seal tightly in foil or a tightly closed container, refrigerate.  These are best made a few days before, and keep for up to two weeks.  People love them and they're very cute in a holiday box or tin!

1047  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Help me, Crafters! Just bought an antique machine and need how to use on: November 14, 2008 05:08:20 PM

I just bought the holy grail...at least what I consider one.  It's an 1890 New Home Heritage Treadle machine with a beautiful Cherry Coffin Top cabinet.  Found it in a corner of the local Salvation Army thrift shop. 

It's a well-maintained working model with a needle,  original box of tools and five threaded bobbins.  I'm checking the antique sewing machine sites for a manual, but advice from someone who owns and uses this treasure would be incredibly appreciated!  I would love to actually use this machine!

1049  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a beginner knit jumper or dress pattern for a curvy girl (me) on: October 30, 2008 05:26:05 PM
I have been surfing for days for a knit dress or jumper pattern for a beginning knitter, moi, in size XL.

Any ideas for a newbie to both knitting and Crafster?

Thanks for your help!

I Love it, love it, love it!

I have been a happy Glock 9mm owner for ten years, but I need to get back out to the range.

Thanks so much for the pattern. So, does anyone else out on Craftster know where I can find a fabric with the Bill of Rights printed on it?  That's what I want to make my cozy out of, and I might make one for my hubby's Sig Sauer, too!

Keep up the great crafting! Grin
