That dress is gorgeous, are the flowers embroidered or printed on the fabric?  I especially like it because it looks comfy not at all cumbersome.  I also like the dress your sister (?) is wearing, that looks nice, from what little I can see.  Great job on it, it sure doesn't look at all handmade.

I received the fat quarters as a Christmas present and had no idea what to do with them, so since I am in a Sunbonnet Sue rut I decided to make a doorstop.  She is filled with sand and is a 2 liter bottle under the bottom.

Hope you like her!

1435  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Topsy Turvy Cinderella Doll on: June 13, 2006 12:48:34 PM
My husband's Nana gave me a Reader's Digest Book for my birthday that was copywritten in 1984.  Little did I know when I opened it up there would be a wealth of knowledge and crafts spewing out of it.  This one caught my eye and I rushed out that day to get fabric to make her.  It is a Topsy turvy Cinderella doll.  I haven't seen one of these since I was a kid and I was so excited to make her.  She stands 16 inches tall which is tall by doll standards.  One one side she is the housemaid Cinderella and when you flip her dress over she is transformed into the Belle of the Ball.  Her face is hand embroidered.

Here she is as the housemaid:

And here she is as the princess:
1436  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Star Waltz quilt on: June 13, 2006 12:43:19 PM
This is my queen size Star Waltx quilt.  It was a block of the month mystery sampler, I had NO idea what I was getting myself into, it was quite the undertaking.  It is machine pieced and hand quilted.  Took three months just for the quilting and 1 year to construct the top.  I hope you like it, I use it every day.

1438  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Gifts in a jar on: June 13, 2006 12:05:37 PM
Hello, newbie here, I've been a lurker for a while everyone here is so inspiring and seems super nice.  It's a pleasure to finally post here.  I digress...

I make several of these cookies in a jar and keep them for unexpected guests that pop into the house (aren't there always some that don't call before they come?!?)  I set them up like an assembly line and can get several done at once. 

In a 32 ounce wide mouth clean mason jar layer:

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup oatmeal
1 1/2 cups flour (plain)
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins

Screw on lid and ring to jar, cut 10 inch circle of fabric with pinking shears or a rotary blade on the rotary cutter.  Secure with rubber band around neck of jar then tie off with coordinating ribbon.

Write directions for cookie baking and attach to ribbon:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream 3/4 cup softened butter with 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla.  Add entire contents of jar and mix by hand to combine.  Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 12 minutes.  ENJOY!

In order to pack this fully I wrap a CLEAN white dishtowel around my fingers and pack in tightly after each layer.  Now you might want to put the raisins towards the bottom but believe me you will have a mottled mess they work out much better on top. 

if I make one of these I'll update with a picture! 

I wish I had one of these left but they all have been given away.
