Ok, I just was browsing through the last thread and had to reply to McDuck...that dress you are working on (unless you finished since then) is one of my favorite simplicity patterns! I have used it a zillion times. It was actually the first EVER thing I sewed and the first ever pattern I used. If you need any help just let me know. That dress you are working on is really hard to get over the head and shoulders so I have started hemming the back about halfway down and using a button at the top with a loop of elastic to close it. Here is a pic of one of her dresses from that pattern...she is soooo little then I can't find one of her wearing it...I wasn't good with modeling pics back then.

We would go fabric shopping together, and she'd give me her opinion on colors and trims. She also got me started on machine embroidery.

The next few months is really going to be hard. I lived with her, because neither one of us could afford to live alone. She loved this house bought it with my Dad when we were all kids. I am really sad to leave here and try to find a place on my own, when I get comfort from being near the things she loved. But, I am trying to take comfort in knowing that it is her wishes that the house be sold and divided among my sisters and myself. She wouldn't want any of us to try and keep the house when we can't afford it.

I wish the Doctors were more attentive to her complaints so her last few months would have been more comfortable for her. But she's put on her dancing shoes and with Dad in heaven now.

Thank you for listening to me. I am hoping everyone really appreciates their Mother on this special day.


Oh I am so terribly sorry for this great loss....it would be hard at ANY time, but right before Mother's Day, I am so sorry...........

Anyhoo, here's the dress with her petti underneath. I kind of wish I would have ordered an all white petti for wearing under clothes - this one is pink and white and while you can't see it in these pics, I'm afraid that it'll show during her BBB photos. Maybe I'll have to convince DH to let me buy her a white one. . .

I should add that this dress was inspired by both Teresa and Jeanne's Cinderella dresses . . . sort of a mishmash of the two. . .

I just love them all......they are just stunning......I wish my 16 year old daughter was little again!

For this year, DD would like Marie from Aristocats on a dress, and Pluto on a top and shorts. Pluto I have built into my machine, but I need to purchase a card that has Marie. That's ok, as I purchased a new machine to be able to use my Disney Princess card I see that the Best Pals card has a Marie face, but I found this online.
http://en.item.rakuten.com/mishin-oukoku/10000697/

Unfortunately, I don't read Japanese I even emailed them, but the reply is in Japanese as well

So, my long-winded intro is to ask, has anyone purchased a Japanese card to use in a Brother Embroidery Machine (model PE-180D)? Or, should I just purchase the Best Pals card? Any suggestions would be appreciated. TIA!
This is what it translates into:Type of pattern 29 Type 36 design
The classic film "The Aristocats" has shaped configuration according to the story. Marie especially cute, and attractive play Dutchess of your mom (the hero of the story), Berlioz and Toulouse's lively brother, dependable O'Malley (father of later), depending on the combination of city chic and they are , but also slightly sweet mature.
My computer automatically translated it. Hope this helps. My machine doesn't use the Disney cards so I don't have any help on whether the card would work or not.

Thank you! Considering the translation of the language, I know I am taking a big chance on even ordering it, but it is tempting I'll wait and see if my local store even carries the Best Pals card, and I might inquire about this one there as well (the owner is pretty knowledgeable). If anyone else has any more experience, I'd love to hear it. Thanks again!

Thanks! The big white and black dots are Michael Miller. The black with red I've had for about 2 years? and I know I got it at Hancocks, but not sure of the designer.
