  She was 15, and had a happy kitty life. Smaller than most cats, she was a girlie girl! I appreciate your companionship,& all your kitty antics.
 I'm gonna miss you. Rest in peace sweet girl.

I also sell the pattern to make these dolls. Her name is Joslyn Annie.  Available in paper pattern form and PDF download at my website, Craftsy, My Etsy Shop, The Patterncupboard, & Patternmart.
On another note My wholesale patterns that used to sell at The Pattern Peddlers are now being sold at

Hi everyone! OMG it has been way too long since I posted anything. I apologize for that. But I'm still getting past a very difficult year. I'm trying to be positive about life in general. I am slowly getting my crafting mojo back. Still too many sad days. Each morning I pray for it to be a good day, and hope to accomplish something each day. I try my best to have some little drops of awesome each day, no matter how small.
I'm working on some new quilting patterns. I will post them here once I get them done. But that will be quite awhile. I have an idea for about 12 new patterns. The ideas flow out of my brain a lot faster than I can create these things!! hahaha
I have a Chef Pierre Bag Holder doll partly made for a custom order. He is such a great seller. Here's a couple pictures of the Chef dolls I make.

Helpful Hints

Did you Know?
A Banana Peel can heal most skin problems.
Bananas are the magical fruit, because they heal many common problems on the skin. By rubbing the peel on your skin, you can heal bruises and cuts and eliminate rashes, itching and warts. Basically if you have a common skin problem, it can be cured by this fruit. Interesting eh?

Next I came across this Miracle Cleaner and Stain remover!!
Sorry, I can't recall where I first heard about it!! Somewhere on the internet. I use it everywhere in my house now!
This is the ultimate stain remover that actually works on a seriously set in stain! 
The mixture is:
1 part Dawn Dishwashing Liquid (the original blue kind) 2 parts Hydrogen Peroxide  
Mix together and pour directly on the stain.
If it is a big stain, you can always add the mixture to a bucket of hot water and submerse your stained item in it.
 I actually keep mine in a spray bottles and just squirt it onto everything! In fact I recently came across the peroxide in it's own spray bottle. Which is a good thing, because the peroxide looses it's potency if not kept in a dark bottle. I have one in the kitchen, one in the laundry room, and one in each bathroom, ready to fight the stains and clean whatever needs to be cleaned and sanitized! Love this stuff!
