Anyway, I'm very excited about my new addition and can't wait to get started!
How awesome! Did you purchase the 770 locally or is being shipped to you? I usually order from Threadart.com. Their embroidery thread works great and it is very inexpensive.

That sounds like a very good plan. Somebody that I know is participating in a contest to make preemie hats to donate to a hospital. She has made some of the cutest Mickey ears hats for the babies. I'm sure something like that would be perfect for a Big Give!

My patterns --- Each drawer holds about 75-100 patterns



Plus I was at Joann's this weekend and got a pic of all the New Mickey fabric they got in.

Awesome find on the display cases! I love how many patterns that they hold for you! I keep my regular paper patterns in a drawer in my sewing room. But I just organized my epatterns in a binder and I'm so happy with it. I am trying to stay away from Joanns and the new fabric. I am still trying to sew from my stash. I did break down and buy a few knit fabrics on the internet last week but the prices were just too low to pass up!

Thank you!!!!

Good Morning ladies. I know many of you don’t know me; however, some of you do. For those that don’t, my family is a Make a Wish family, we took our daughter’s trip to Disney in October, 2011. It took me 14 months to finish our Trip Report, because life kept getting in the way; however, the story is now complete and I wanted to share the link in case any of you wanted to read about this incredible trip that has helped us endure these last 14 months.

We had so many of you who stepped forward to bless our family with the Big Give and I want you to know that there is rarely a day in my house that at least one of us isn’t wearing one of your amazing creations you made us. We are a huge Disney loving family from the tall to the small and we proudly wear our outfits everywhere, not just at Disney. It brings us joy and happiness to see the love that was poured into these outfits. Some of you have actually become my IRL friends.

I have Thanked you all by letter, sent postcards and Christmas cards and Thanked you here...but I wanted to say one more time to those who blessed us...THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I know many may wonder if the Big Give matters...it did to us. I wasn’t on the DIS boards to have a Big Give and was actually a bit shy to accept it, I didn’t want others to think that was why I was here. I said yes because of my children and to see the joy on their face when they received the packages was priceless. Many of you were part of that journey, so I had to say one last time: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

I hope, if you are inclined, you will come see the handiwork of your fellow Disboutiquers. I LOVE to come here and see the beautiful creations, although lately I haven’t had time to (in addition to all of our own health issues, my Dad was diagnosed with Cancer in August and spent 35 days in the hospital, 32 in Intensive Care and it has fallen to me to ensure he gets where he and my Mom need to be). To those who are gracious when I do get to drool over your beautiful work, THANK YOU! It is my desire to one day own an embroidery machine and it is fun to see what you are all able to create.

As you see I can be a bit wordy, and my TR is as well. Here is the Table of Contents so you can just read the actual journey if you so desire...and it is worth reading. Lisa’s wish was “To be FAMOUS at Disney” and she was in a HUGE way! It WAS the trip of a lifetime and many of you are part of that story.

Thanks for the thread tips! I had forgotten about Marathon! I'm a quilter and use a lot of Superior brand thread products but wasn't sure if that was the direction in which I really wanted to go.

I've also been looking at Mediera thread online.

I ordered my machine through Wal-Mart and had it shipped site to store so I could save on shipping. They had the machine at $699 at one time, but it was $597 so must have been a rollback. Either way, I'm not complaining! Didn't take quite a week to arrive at my local store and now it is patiently waiting for me while I read the instruction manual and make my decision on thread. DH was shocked that I hadn't gotten it all set up and started sewing. I still need to get some stabilizer as well, but now I need to figure out what my first project will be.

I'm looking forward to getting started, but trying not to rush into things so I don't frustrate myself by jumping in with both feet like I usually do!

Happy New Year everyone!

Hi everyone! I haven't been on this board in months because I have been so busy with work and other things. So many great creations and new faces but WTMTQ!

I did manage to get a little sewing done lately. This is a dress I made for one of Alexa's friends who went to WDW in December. She requested Sleeping Beauty.



Back view.



And a Mermaid dress for her sister, who is a year older. Poor Alexa doesn't look too enthused in this picture. She actually ended up having the stomach flu later that day and I was so afraid her friends would end up sick on their trip. Thankfully they were fine!



And some Thanksgiving things I did for Alexa, Connor and my little granddaughter. Alexa's outfit matches the baby's. I don't know why I didn't bother to get a better pic. Busy cooking while the guys watched football, I guess! Ignore the unfinished drywall behind the couch. My living room has been a work in progress for far too long and it's a sore subject!

And here are a few more.

Grinch outfits I finished for the kids. I had meant to do these last year, lol. My photographer friend took this pic so it's much better than any of mine!



I don't think I ever shared these here. Way back from Halloween! Not the most flattering pic of Connor.



And back view of the Frankenweenie dress. Ignore my daughter's pose, she is a bit of a smart-aleck at times!

I stopped in at Joanns today and immediately broke my New Year's resolution to continue sewing from my stash. I bought two of the new Mickey prints and I also bought a ton of the fabrics from the clearance racks. This week they have 50% off the clearance fabrics. Plus a lot of the clearance fabrics were those adorable Doodles fabrics. I bought 4 of the Doodles knits, 2 corduroys and a couple of woven fabrics.

SHANNON!!! I love all of your outfits, as always. Love the Grinch Outfits, SB, Thanksgiving ...I love it all! I am so far behind on this thread so I don't know if you ever posted these outfits you so graciously made for Lisa; however, I want to make sure they are SEEN! *Shannon is one BUSY lady and still found time to make these pretty clothes for Lisa when we went to Orlando in September.


Lisa LOVES this outfit, she says they are the most comfortable pants she has ever worn and would wear it every day, summer and winter if I would let her.



This outfit is AMAZING! Shannon had a houseful of ill family and still managed to make this for Lisa and she has also enjoyed it thoroughly. Lisa sang Beauty and the Beast at two separate performances in December and wore this outift both times. We LOVE it.

This gives me a chance to Thank Shannon once again for her kindness AND show off her amazing sewing skills. If I have already shared them, forgive me, they are worthy of being seen twice though.


Diane, I hope your husband is recovering and things are improving. I need to go back and read if you have posted about him.

The whole thing -- it was a display for ski goggles.

Those drawerrs are perfect for for patterns, what a great idea!!!

How fun, I've already looked ahead at patterns and found patterns for Mickey and Minnie hats as well as patterns for crochted character dolls!

And I got two drawer stacks, the 2nd one just doesn't have the glass on it.They both look like this on front.


Plus I was at Joann's this weekend and got a pic of all the New Mickey fabric they got in.

Great find on the display case and the set of drawers for your patterns. I am sure they will be a nice addition to your sewing room. Thanks for the sneak preview of the new Mickey fabric. I guess it's a good thing there isn't a Joann's near me!

Hi Judy! Happy New Year to you and your family. Thank you for the note about your TR. I am sorry to hear that your family had various health issues lately. I hope 2013 will bring a healthy start for all of you. It is heart warming to know that our work has made a difference to your family. By the way, we got your Christmas card in the mail today (thank you). I like the stamps you chose for the card!

Sounds like you got a good deal on your machine. I hope you will be able to get the supplies soon so you can start playing with it!

Great job on the Sleeping Beauty and Ariel dresses (especially when you put Flora the fairy on the bodice on the Sleeping Beauty dress!). I am sure the girls liked them. Great job on the Thanksgiving, Grinch, and Halloween outfits!

That IS an amazing dress! The outfit looks pretty in addition to being comfy! Princess Lisa is a beautiful model for the outfits too!

Everyone has been so busy lately! WTMTQ! I have seen many beautiful dresses and outfits posted. I so wish we had a trip planned so I could justify making some Disney stuff. I guess I'll just have to get my fix by signing up for the next Give!

I was busy before Christmas finishing some gifts for family. Sorry in advance for the non-Disney picture overload! And no matter how small I edit the photos on my computer, they still show up huge here! I'll have to brush up on my photo editing skills once work calms down a bit.

A towel and facecloth for part of my niece's birthday gift. The towel is in her favourite colour, pink! (This prompted her to ask me if I could redo one of her shirts because SIL tossed it.)

DS participated in a Secret Santa for his class at school. He asked me if I could make a "winter shirt" for the girl he got. It was a $5 limit and I lucked out on the shirt - it was only $2! The shirt was actually red not pink. See what I get for taking a picture in the dark!?!

DS also wanted a shirt for his holiday concert. And for $2, why not!

Then I did an apron for SIL. Apparently she has been miffed for quite a few months that I haven't made her anything "special". Little did she know I had been working on designing this apron and digitizing the designs for a few months to make sure they were perfect for her. When I saw the blue vine fabric in the stash that my friend gave me in the summer, I knew I had hit the jackpot and just had to find a coordinating fabric. She always brings fancy cupcakes to family events so I had to put a cupcake on it for her!

I made some Christmas hand towels for SIL and MIL. The fuzzy white stuff is the water soluble stabilizer that I washed out after I took the picture and then promptly forgot to take another picture before I wrapped them up.

A red apron I did for my FIL who would BBQ everything if he could. The place that had the shirts for $2 had these aprons for $3. Another awesome deal! I was a little disappointed in how much this font pulled in the apron while stitching. You could literally see the material being pulled in as the machine was stitching. I may try doing this one over again on something else to see if it is the font, the material or I just messed up when hooping it.

My BIL is right into the whole "Keep Calm" craze and he loves to cook, so I did a red apron for him too. This one turned out a lot better and I did it the same way so I think the issue on the other one is the font.

And finally, a shirt for my MIL to wear on New Years. She loves her bling so this was perfect for her!

'Let it snow' and the other Christmas designs came from dailyembroidery.com. The name on the towel is HeatherSue's Disney font and the heart/flower applique came from LinniePinnie. The cupcake apron and 'Keep Calm' apron are designs I digitized myself. The big font in the 'King' apron came from dailyembroidery and I digitized the small font and crown in it. Overall, I was pretty happy with how most items turned out. I still have a lot to learn about digitizing but I was really happy with how the designs I did stitched out.

Judy, thank you so much! I was happy to do those for Lisa and actually I was in such a hurry to get them mailed, I didn't take pictures! I did look at the pics on your trip report shortly after you posted them but I am behind on it again. One day I will finish reading! I'm so glad Lisa could wear the Belle outfit to perform in! Alexa has requested one like when we go see the off-Broadway show in February so I better get busy!

Diane, Alexa did wear her Grinch outfit on Christmas. Connor is starting to not want to wear anything I make and I don't push the issue. I was happy to get a picture of the two of them!

Thanks everyone for all the compliments!

DS also wanted a shirt for his holiday concert. And for $2, why not!
