Papering Walls With Fabric I HAVE HAD MANY letters from you asking me to repeat a few pertinent facts about wallpapering your walls with dress fabric. This is a relatively simple operation and most successful. Just get your courage up and begin by papering one wall in a powder room, kitchen or a breakfast room. This has become a very popular decorating feature and can C—... Cu itsi r* be fun and original to do. j£W jlMPLE< Be sure the surface you *^^/^ => • will cover with fabric is clean. /0y£#fl£&? Cut the selvage from your fabric on both sides. Measure the width of the fabric and place some guide lines on your wall. Brush the wallpaper paste on the wall, not too wet or heavy, then carefully place the fabric on the wall. It's very easy to stretch the fabric. Just pat it carefully in place and try to smooth out any bubbles in the fabric. It might not appear too smooth just after application, but happily, it dries and becomes very taut and smooth on your walls. One of the most important things to remember is that the fabric must be washable and must be preshrunk. By Dorothy Yeglin (The Register's Food Editor) PHARLOTTE, they call this ^-J charmer with the golden crown and graceful form. To behold it is to feast the eyes. To taste it is joy. Our double-fruit delight does credit to the fine old name of Charlotte Russe, as this type of whipped cream- gelatin creation also is called. The mold with the ladylike, title is an idea we borrowed from the French, and usually is prepared in a form lined with ladyfingers, cake, jelly roll slices or graham cracker crumbs. Variations are endless, in- spiring adventurous cooks to invent their own. Flavor possibilities range from all sorts of fruit or chocolate to maple, coffee or even such favorites as peanut butter or peppermint. This Charlotte is a p r i c o t and banana. Apricot nectar and preserves supply sunny color and taste to the lady' finger-ringed mixture, while banana slices are folded inside and arranged on top. One of the happiest' things about this summery find, is that the recipe can come in as handily next January as it does in July. None of the ingredients is seasonal, nor will its popularity be. 10 ladyfingers 1 envelope unflavored gelatin .1 cup apricot nectar 2 eggs, separated 1 cup apricot preserves Banana Apricot Charlotte 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 1 cup sugar 1 cup cream, whipped 3 bananas, sliced Slice ladyfingers almost through; open but do not separate. Stand around edge of 8-incH spring form pan. Sprinkle gelatin on apricot nectar in saucepan to soften. Add slightly beaten egg.yolks. Place over low heat; stir constantly until gelatin dissolves and mixture thickens slightly. Add Vi cup of preserves; stir until melted. Remove from heat; stir in lemon rind and lemon juice. Chill until mixture mounds slightly when dropped from spoon. Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Gradually add sugar and beat until very stiff. Fold into gelatin mixture; fold in whipped cream and bananas. Turn into prepared pan; chill until firm. Add a little orange juice to remaining Vz cup preserves, if necessary to make spreading consistency. Spread over top of Charlotte. Garnish with additional banana slices just before serving. Serves 10 to 12. Reserve Ladies' Clubs To Meet Wednesday D EAR MRS. FARMER: I have just completed a sewing course and loved every minute of it, and yet, I. feel rather insecure because I feel there is so much more that I don't ~kMw7~How~dffes~ one "ever get enough confidence to feel she can really sew well without lessons? —Judy M. MRS. FARMER SAYS: There's an old saying that in effect sounds like this: "The more you learn, the' more you realize the less you knew." When you are learning any skill, such as sewing, painting or cooking, all you can do in the first few lessons is to learn the basics. As you proceed, the more you will want to learn. I have women in my classes who have come for courses, not because they didn't learn, but because they wanted to achieve perfection: H any professional gives a lecture that I haven't heard, you may be sure that I will be in the front row. It is vitally important to keep up with changing fabrics, and styles which in nrn have a changing effect on construction methods. Many women find that sewing classes stimulate their interest as well as guarantee successful results. There is no limit to what any ofMas can learn.
