Crafting With Lillie Mae's April 2009
Tidings from Brenda....

Enjoying the warmer weather, here at home in Muncie, Indiana we're busy shedding our bulky winter coats for our lighter summer jackets.  Next week, according to the weather forecast, we're expecting snow.  And so it is with Indiana weather.

Prayers Please....

On a much more personal note, my sister has been diagnosed with breast cancer and will be scheduled soon for a double mastectomy.  It would be so appreciated if you could please remember my sister, Kathy, in your daily prayers.  Bless you.

1.  When drawing lines on Easter eggs, measure & draw lightly with mechanical pencil & when you embroider those lines, the drawn markings will not show.

2.  Cut out and trim with pinking shears to eliminate some of the bulk.

3  Don't be stingy with the staining mixture when baking your doll.
