Hi Robin, I love this jam, but it seems to be a seasonal item at Costco. I have not been able to find it even on the E.D Smith website. If you find some, stock up on it! Good Luck, Tracey

Hi Lauren, I found the music box at a thrift store. The only markings I can find on the box are on the wind-up, it says LAUREL. Im sorry that I cant be more of a help to you, but my suggestion would be to use Stuff Alert to find this on Ebay. Good Luck! Tracey

Hi Valerie, I have not finished this. It is pretty time consuming, but will be totally worth it in the end! I have been working on this going on two years now (off and on). I still have 5 more houses to stitch up and then piece everything together. It is an enormous quilt. I love all the details in this quilt as well as other Crabapple Hill kits...so worth the money! Good Luck and Happy Stitching, Tracey

Hi Lynne, I believe the face transfer was not as dark as I wanted it to be, so I enhanced it with regular crayola crayons. I ironed the transfer on and then matched the colors in the eyes and lips and colored on the fabric. I also outlined the lips and possibly eyelashes with a Fabrico fabric marker. These are great because they dont bleed on the fabric. After coloring, turn the fabric over and press on a piece of paper to set the colors. I added some make-up blush with a paint brush, but you could easily color in cheeks with crayons. I bought the Fabrico markers here:http://store.valueweb.com/servlet/jukeboxquilts/Categories Sophies hair is LionBrand Homespun yarn. It ravels with play, so I tied a small knot at the end of each strand to keep the wavy look. When it unravels it looks like the horses hair here: http://www.gigglefacestudios.com/giggleface_studios/2009/04/sophies-homestead-dress-3-mccalls-m4333.html I really enjoyed making this doll, and is a great first doll project. Good luck! Tracey

Hi Tina, This recipe is from Martha Stewart: http://www.marthastewart.com/336491/smores-cookies It was good, especially right out of the oven, but not as good the next day. I suggest you heat them in the microwave before eating.

HI BlessedCP, I got that chicken fabric at Joanns about a year ago. I got everything that was left on the bolt (a little less than a yard) It is one of those prints that is specifically made for Joanns. If you cant find it in the store you might want to try ebay or etsy. Happy quilting!
