Disney Princess Crochet -- Review

We know all the girls love the Disney Princess' and would love these little crocheted dolls of each one of them.

The kit includes all of the materials needed to make Ariel and Cinderella (my granddaughter, Ariel, is claiming Ariel and my mother is claiming Cinderella once I get them made) as shown below:

The instruction book is 76 pages.  It's includes extensive instructions as well as illustrations for making Ariel and Cinderella, but also 10 other dolls:
Cinderella's Fairy Godmother
Snow White and

Also included in the book are instructions with illustrations on the different stitches and techniques used to make the dolls.  There are some stitches that I wasn't familiar with, but the instructions are so clear that I had no problem doing them.

I haven't started working on this kit yet, but I have previously made Queen Elsa from the Frozen Crochet.  You can find my review of that kit HERE.  It's also highlighted at the bottom of this post.

About the author and designer:
Jessica Ward is the author and she has written and edited many books for Disney, including Duffy the Disney Bear, The Ultimate Disney Party Book and the Birnbaum official travel guides to the Disney Parks.  She lives in Connecticut.

Jana Whitley is the designer and she began making fantasy and fairy tale character for family and friends in 2007.  The rest is history for her as she has never stopped since.  This is her first published collection of patterns.  She lives in Utah.

WIP Wednesday -- Quilt Retreat Progress

The quilt retreat was lots of fun.  I feel like I got a lot done.  I finished 5 microwave hotpads and 4 sets of coasters.

I worked on the black, white with a bit of red quilt:

I'm cheating with this picture.  I actually had these 2 rows of this crazy colored quilt done before the retreat.  I didn't plan on working on it at the retreat but ended up putting on 2 more rows.  I'm saving that picture for next week's post.

I got more yo-yo's added to the table runner.  Still 34 more to put on to finish it---finally!

Since the retreat's been over on Sunday I've worked mostly on finally starting to recover my craft/sewing room.  That is not going anywhere fast, but I have gotten some boxes looked through and those things put in their specific places.
