It's important for me to have a good seat so I do it. We typically get seats either left or right of center. Center section seats on the floor are usually exclusively staff tickets. There are other mothers at the studio that really don't care as long as they have seat, so they don't stand in line.
That's pretty much how it happens here, the good ones go fast. I just feel bad for the mom's of tiny dancers who aren't in a great seat because the little ones (the cutest dancers!) are hardest to see.

I had a few cute outfits for the girls and then found out the week before our trip that there were record setting high temps the week we were going in December so I had to resew everything for them a few days before we left. I have since learned why sleeveless items are so amazing...you can add a t-shirt or turtleneck or leave them alone and then you've covered all FL seasons. I'll try to find the pictures and post some. It was wonderful at Sea World because the girls wore HUGE orange bows and I spotted them everywhere. I met up with hubby when we went to see Shamu and I spotted the girls in the completely crowded stadium because of their hairbows!!
We have both Sea World and WDW anual passes, and I never see customs at SW, and sometimes very few at WDW. The majority of my sewing is sleeveless just for the reason you wrote...and we've got leggings every color of the rainbow for the same reason. Too funny about the hairbows!

We were busy playing outside in the pool yesterday and then had friends over...good thing I checked in this morning before Mother's Day activities or I would've been lost! LOL.

I loved all the creations on the last thread...I've been so busy with work that I haven't had time to post or sew! Soon though.

I so want to post some pictures of what I am working on...but my camera doesn't love me any more! Everytime I try to take a picture, it won't come on...like it is a dead battery. Hubby gets it and it works fine for him. I try again, and it shuts off as soon as I get my hands on it. You think it is trying to tell me something?

So...I'll just tell you what I'm doing. (of course a picture is worth a thousand words....)

I've finished the Minnie Mouse dress for Chef Mickey using a Precious Dress; I've finished a Santa Pooh Vida for Crystal Palace; finished a black and white Steamboat Willie Stripwork dress for Hollywood and Vine;and I am working on a Precious/Peek-a-Book skirt for a Snow White/Dwarfs dress for Biergarten. Once I finish this I will be half way to Disney! Only 4 more sets of dresses to go...and about a million t shirts! (actually only 95 more to go)

I am also working on modifying a diaper bag pattern to work as a Mickey bag for in the parks. While I real;l;y love my baggallinni,I really want something more Disney-fied for the parks....



Hope everyone has a great Mother's Day!

Auh MAN!! It's going to be 45-50 today and Mommy wants to go to Mystic Aquarium!

BOO!!! Where's all the nice weather we have been having?

AND Hannah woke up at 1am, and refused to sleep in her crib, then I slipped her back at 3am, only to have her cry at like 6- but I tapped Daddy- knowing I can use the Mother's Day card....
I want a nice mild day. Oh well. cool and windy it is.


And you girls better get busy- I want to see more outfits when I get back!

And believe it or not, this way is probably better than general admission free-for-all when they line up at the theatre door 2 hours early and then save 40 seats with tape and ribbon...it did get ugly in there a few years ago from what I understand, lol. I missed it because we were at another studio then, and had 2 shows.
As someone who works for a theatre that has LOTS of dance recitals...we like it much better than general admission also! You wouldn't believe some of the parents pushing and shoving to get the "best" seat. In our theatre there really are not any bad seats so it's so silly.

Could everyone please post any Very Hungry Caterpillar outfits? I think I want to make one for Hannah's 4th birthday, and am just not sure what to put where or if I want to cut the fabric!! I have the one that is white with little caterpillars and wording all over it, the one with the rows of food, and the panel that has a 2 large caterpillars, 2 large butterflies and 2 large leaves on it surrounded by all the different colored dots......It would be a size 4.
Thanks! I wish I had used a darker purple thread on Lumpy, but once I put it away for a bit, it looked fine.

VHC? Sure! I only had a bout 2 yds of the little caterpillars & words so I ended up doing a LOT of applique.

She thought the fancy nancy dress was her flower girl dress lol, we are going to have to convince her she can't wear it to the wedding.

Very cute dress & bow. Don't you just love it when they like things so much?

Sooo cute! Love all the applique!

I really shouldn't say anything. But I have had the worst 2 days of my life. My mother passed away yesterday and we were extrememly close. She taught me how to sew when I was 8 years old. She became a Disney fan with me, and came to Disney me quite a few times. She always LOVED everyone of my Disney related (and everything actually) outfits and showed everyone that walked in the door. 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.

NICE! Love the fabric
Thank you!

Count me in for the recital insanity. Our dress rehearsal is tomorrow night, final run through on Thursday and recital Sat. Woooo HOOOOO and then the madness is over

Sally... to you from someone who totally understands. And coming right at Mother's day makes it even worse. 4 years ago on Mother's day my mom went to the hospital, and we lost her 5 days later. It still hurts, but it does get easier, I promise. This is the place to let it all out, for me this is not just sewing support, sometimes it's life support too.

Can I buy my way into your family? I promise DD would be the nicest of cousins and is just the right age to be on your hand me down list rotation.
The offer stands if any other Disboutiquers are selling cousin options.....
