I love this, it's so cute... you could still do this instead of the original paper chain for holiday decorations too, how cute would this look on a tree or your mantle? It's like a new twist on homemade.  I might want to do this for my tree next year!  Guess I should start now, huh? Smiley

I was thinking the same thing!  It's also a great way to use up leftover yarn.

Awesome!  I've been looking fr a replacement for my usual Cranberry Apple Cider Jelly (named Crapple thanks to DH)  It's good but I wanted to try something new.

Just remembered The Hillbilly Housewife!  When DH and I were 1st married and really poor I used a lot of her recipes as starting points. Nothing's wrong with them as they are, I just can't seem to make a recipe as written.  I always have to play with it.

This is one of my go to low budget meals.

Taco Soup

2C chicken broth (or water w/ bullion)
1C salsa
1 can refried beans
1 can corn
pack of taco seasoning
cubed or shredded chicken if you have it

Bring the water and salsa to a boil mix in the refried beans (they'll be clumpy at first, but will eventually mix in).  Stir in the seasoning, corn and chicken.  Simmer for a bit. It's good served with sour cream and shredded cheese on top.  Cornbread or corn chips go well with it too.

You might be able to make it in the rice cooker depending on the model you have.

Very cute.  I love reversible things for kids. 

I love making baby (now toddler) clothes for the same reasons!  I especially love dresses that become tunics then shirts as dd gets taller.

I remember using mine and my sisters baby clothes to dress our dolls so I don't see why you couldn't make a doll to wear the clothes you made for your baby.  I think I remember that cabbage patch dolls fit the clothes best.

I have some of that owl fabric.  Isn't it awesome?  I'm trying to decide whether it will become a messenger bag for me or a jumper for DD.  Wish I had bought more.

Great pants and I love the coordinating applique.

Thanks for the suggestion.  We did pipe a ring before filling with jam.  My suspion is than a lot of the jam soaked into the cake and so the layers got closer together, squishing out the icing we piped.  Next time  think we need to fill the cakes, then let the sit and settle for a few hours before frosting.
