11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: A few summer outfits for Pullip (image heavy) on: July 19, 2007 08:40:26 PM
Pullips are 12" dolls, you guessed right!

They're a bit longer in the leg than Blythes, though similar otherwise.

Thanks, I do love making things this small, I can make things for dolls I could never pull off myself, ha!
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A few summer outfits for Pullip NOW with small tutorial on: July 19, 2007 08:27:47 PM
While I am unable to share more complicated (i.e., less linear...) patterns through a sad lack of a scanner, I did put together a very small tutorial for a basic sundress, which can easily be modified with sleeves, added/less fullness, length of bodice, length of skirt, etc. It is a basic guide I created to ease the process of creation for myself,  Wink. It is posted after the pictures.

Thanks again for all your kind words!


Well, what with classes being over for summer, and not having a very hectic work schedule, I've had a lot of fun making some outfits, and my Eternia Nerineke has been a very patient model,  Wink

I call this Narcissus, and it is definitely my favorite so far:

A Weekend in the Country, a very fun little shirtdress that almost ended up too small around the hips:

Tea in the Garden, I love the pleats and blue button especially:

Summer Circus, a very fun fabric:

Neon Lights, also a very fun fabric:

Cotton Candy at the Park, a simple but sweet little dress, and one of my favorites:

Chocolate-Covered Cherries. I don't like how the colours came out in this photo, but it's still a lovely little dress:

Summer Picnic, with a definite retro flair:

A small tutorial to obtain a looks as diverse as Tea in the Garden and Neon Lights.

True enough, with bells they might feel more like jesters and less like wizards...  Wink

Very nicely done!

It looks like a very pretty, lightweight summer dress, very nicely done,  Cheesy

And there's nothing worse than your sewing machine jamming right in the middle of a project...

I second this!

I would love to see a new challenge started,  Cheesy

Yep, my Jo-Ann's says it'll be over this evening as well! It sure was awesome while it lasted,  Cheesy
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / All of Jo-Ann's Clearance Fabric - $1 on: January 27, 2007 04:00:57 PM
Hey fellow Craftsters, just a heads up that my Jo-Ann's just put ALL of the $1-$5 clearance fabric down to $1. ALL OF IT! And according to the  store manager, this is a company-wide thing, so walk, run, sprint to your nearest Jo-Ann's for some awesome fabric buying,  Cheesy
18  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: 2006 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go he on: October 31, 2006 06:41:18 PM
Everyone's costumes are so awesome!

I just got home from work and was able to get a few pictures taken of mine, so excuse the post-work tired expressions! This is a dress made from the two Regency period patterns Simplicity released a few months ago. It was very fun to make, and includes a chemisette, short stays, petticoat, and the dress itself. The little jacket I sort of created at the last minute, and it is not as fitted as I would have liked. And either my arms are too short, or the sleeves were too long,  Wink But you all know how that goes... The bonnet was bought, and I trimmed it myself (I think the most fun of the whole project)

The bonnet, taken several days ago

The whole look

Just the dress. I don't know why the dress looks so short in these, the petticoat really wasn't sticking out that much!

Thanks for looking!
19  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: I'm making a recipe book and need recipe ideas on: May 29, 2006 08:45:57 PM
Here are a few recipes much loved by my family:

Baked Oatmeal

Excellent hot, warm, cool, and cold. Very good chunked into milk and eaten with a spoon!

1/3 c. oil
c. sugar
1 egg
2 c. oats
1 t. baking powder
t. salt
c. milk

Pour into greased pan.  Bake at 350 for 25-30 min.

Crab-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

4 chicken breasts, halved, skinned and boned
1/2 c. finely chopped onion
1/4 lb. mushrooms, thinly sliced
1/4 c. butter
3 T. flour
1/4 t. dried thyme (opt.)
1/2 c. each milk, chicken broth and white wine
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1 (6 1/2 oz.) can crab meat, drained well (or frozen imitation crab)
1/3 c. fine bread crumbs
1 T. dry parsley flakes
1 c. grated Swiss cheese (or more)
paprika (opt.)

Pound chicken breasts until 1/4" thick.  Saut onions and mushrooms in butter;  stir in thyme and flour and cook one minute over low heat.  Remove from heat and blend in broth, milk and wine.  Then cook, stirring, until sauce thickens.  Add salt and pepper.
In small mixing bowl, mix 1/2 c. sauce with crab, parsley flakes and bread crumbs.  Spoon equally over chicken breasts.  Roll each piece and place seam side down in a greased 8 x 12" baking dish.  Salt and pepper chicken pieces to taste.  Pour remaining sauce over chicken.  Sprinkle generously with Swiss cheese and paprika.  Cover and bake at 400*F. for 40 min. or until done.  Uncover during last 15 minutes.

Salmon Potatoes 

On this, quantities are rather fluid and depend on the amount of people you'd like to serve. Generally you'd want a good chunk of salmon, and a couple nice big potatoes, about one per person if they're very large.

To serve approx. 4:
Bake or microwave salmon.
Layer sliced raw potatoes (about 1/4" thick slices), chunked cooked salmon, sprinkling salt, lemon pepper, and garlic powder over each successive layer, enough in all to fill a 9" baking dish (mine is 3" deep).
Pour three boxes cream over all.  Bake covered 1 -2 hrs  at 175-200 C.

Sorry for the "cook by the seat of your pants" approach to the Salmon Potatoes, that's the way MOST of my recipes are, Cheesy. They're just far too good not to be shared!

Ohh, now I'm all tempted to blow my crafting budget... Wink

And many thanks for all the kind words! It's always nice to share something that other people enjoy too.
