Just had a horrible day sewing!This is so unusual. It seems that everything I touched today went wrong. Some of the highlights were:

My Minnie Mouse sundress managed to get a cut in the bodice. It is a small nick, but still enough that I can't sell it. Guess I need to find some one in a size 4...and try again tomorrow.

I am embroidering Simba on the front of a Vida. The Vida is a size 3 and the design is a 5x7, so I had to put the front together before I embroidered it. Take 1 - it was too low...had to take it out and redo. Take 2 - broke a needle and the dress came partially un hooped, had to take it out. Take 3 - broke another needle ( I forgot to tighten the needle...) This put a small hole in the dress, and had to take it out again. Take 4 - bobbin ran out half way through...and I discovered I am out of pre wound bobbins! After three tries to wind a bobbin, I managed to get one half way wound and used it!

I have now closed up the studio for the remainder of the day! I need some ice cream! Chocolate ice cream....

Thanks NaeNae!! As always you are soooo sweet!!! I'll let ya know! Do you happen to have a Fancy Nancy Applique Designer up your sleeve? Im looking at one on Etsy, but it doesnt say if it comes in 4x4...it just says large and small hoops! Lol.....

Any of my Brother 270D friends buy prewound bobbins? I got some from Joann's and they didnt work, so then I went to some funky sewing store I passed by on a trip and they sold me a pack of 12 Janome prewounds that work great - but they dont have any size marked on them....Im going to need more soon!!!!!

I've had days like that! SORRY! But, you're right... ice cream should help! And now I'm wanting ice cream, too! Just because I'm sympathetic like that!

I have had days like that! Tomorrow will be better.

I ruined my first shirt yesterday while embroidering. I cut a hole in it when I was trimming the fabric for an applique

ANyone know of a good Fancy Nancy Applique (4x4)? I really need one for Elizabeth's bday!!!!
it's on international speedway blvd, in the home depot plaza, right next to toys r us...one plaza and the whole family can shop happy. Lol

I've seen several Fancy Nancy designs on etsy... But I can't remember who did them. I found them with the search feature, Rebecca has asked for a FN dress with lots of ruffles, but not a Feliz, which was my original plan. I can't decide what I want to do What are your plans, if you don't mind sharing.

I do enjoy your area! You are so right, everyone would be happy in that area!!! lol!!! I love to go to DeLeon Springs when we are there - its like stepping back in time or something...and the pancakes!!! YUM!!!

Im trying to decide what to do...Sould I do a simply sweet? or, should I do an Audrey skirt with ruffles and an appliqued shirt....Elizabeth is going to be 8, but still seems to totally be into home made things...Still not positive what to do though!!! lol

Hi All. I thought i'd introduce my self. I'm a military wife and SAHM to 4 kids ages 14, 9, 4and 23mo. I got my first sewing machine a little over 5 years ago and have slowly started teaching myself to sew. We have just made reservations for our first trip to WDW at the end of July. We will be staying 5days 4 nights in the kidani village villas. I'm so excited, i feel like a kid waiting for Christmas. I've got big plans for some Disney sewing... I love seeing what everyone on this board is/has been doing.

Thanks!
Jodi

Jessica, I can't wait to see this pirate shirt! Take it easy and pace yourself. Or send your mojo this way. You are a great seamstress and no doubt will get er done.

I just did Mickey heads for our last Disney trip, but we're going again in May 2011, so I'm going to try making some Disney appliques for DD's outfits.

The dress is for CUTE!

Oh Nini that is a bad day in the shop. I sure hope you get your ice cream and remember, that is why God makes tomorrows. We get another chance.

Welcome Edward Thomas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[IMG][/IMG]

Our Grandson arrived yesterday, 9 lbs 3 ozs 23 in long!
His Christening is on the 11th and we are supposed to fly out on the 10th. The Dr told DH that because of the DVT he may not be able to fly. I am so sad to go without him and DH is heartbroken to not be able to go but they just can't seem to get his levels right. He is still injecting blood thinners twice a day and taking oral blood thinners. His Doc is consulting with the hematologist and I am praying they give him the OK to fly!

Hi everyone!
I read through the first page, and wow! You are all so talented! I just got a sewing machine, nothing fancy, but it works! Slowly I'll learn to make things, esp. with all the inspiration here!!
Just a quick question, can I post some pictures of things I've created?

Congratulations! He is beautiful!!! Sorry to hear about your DH, hopefully they will get everything figured out and you both will be on your way. I noticed in your siggie that it says 891 miles from Disney... well I have always said we are 900 miles from My Happy Place! Too funny!

Just back from a great vacation and now trying to catch up!

Congrats on the arrival of Gabriel!

Sorry I can't comment on all the beautiful creations or I'll never catch up, but everything I've seen looks great.

Hopefully I will be able to get back to sewing soon, once we get caught up on laundry and groceries and back to work (yuck!).
