*edited to add* The doll clothes went fast, thank you for supporting me in my shop. I'm busy making more, check back soon!

So, upon request, my list of things to do this spring break is as follows:
1) Jacket for my sister (I'd like to say more, but it's a surprise!)
2) 1880's bodice (I've sketched my design, the muslin is cut out, now I just have to put on all my undergarments and fit it)
3) Chemisette (Because my bodice will have a V neck, I've got to have a chemisette too)
4) Petticoat (you can never have enough of these)
5) Crochet (this is a birthday gift for a friend, so I can't reveal details, sorry)
6) Element quilt (see above photo)
7) Burgundy dress (a friend gave me her once used bridesmaid dress because the fabric was beautiful, and my favorite color. I was able to cut out an entire summer dress from the material, and I just need to sew it together.)

In our family these muffins are a staple. They are so simple to make (only two mixing bowls and one fork are dirtied) they bake quickly, and they taste scrumptious! I found this recipe online a long time ago so unfortunately I cannot give proper credit!
1 3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cooking oil
1 cup coarsely chopped cranberries
In a mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Make a well in the center. Combine egg, milk, and oil; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir just till moistened and fold in cranberries (batter should be lumpy). Lightly grease muffin cups or line with paper bake cups; fill 2/3 full. Bake in a 400 oven about 20 minutes or till golden. Remove from pans; serve warm. Makes 10 to 12
Of course you can substitute anything you have on hand for the cranberries, that is just what we have in our freezer right now! Blueberries are especially good too. For all you larger families out there, you might want to double the recipe. It usually makes exactly 14 muffins, and they sure go fast!
