About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Another item finished. A reverse appliqued HM shirt for the oldest. I bought her a HM shirt sometime back on clearance but it was way too big. Now being trendy, the fad may outgrow itself before she reaches that size, so I used the print and reverse appliqued it onto a standard Walmart tshirt. Needs a bit more trimming around the shape, but basically ready. Also got the patterns reorganized and pulled out what may be suitable for fall.

ra - I didn't have your email address, so I'm writing to you here. My question is this. How do you get the cakes to rise enough? I used the wilton 8X2 pans, used the bands that you dip in the water around the pans, and timed everything exactly. The cake tastes great, has a perfect texture, but my cakes never rise very much. What am I doing wrong?
