And yes, D~ , you can help me refurb. that machine if I haven't gotten to it by then!!!


Wawesome!!! I don't care whose house I sleep at, as long as it's free... This would be such a fun trip!

This would be a blast too... So, you actually want me to bring $$? LOL Here I thought you all just wanted to meet Patience?

Obviously, this will have to be an extended weekend trip...

So, are we going to do a sew along??? That would be tons of fun... we could all make the same thing to commemorate the weekend.

Andrea - are you getting in on any of these trips???
How about if we rotate years??? Every year, we could all get together at someone's house. I am sure that no one would mind sleeping under my sewing machines on the floor.

After that we stopped at Hancock Fabrics because I needed thread to be able to finish the major pixie dusting I was doing for D~ and her girls. They had the Maxi-Lock cones on sale for $1.99! My machine really likes that thread - especially for satin stitching. I was able to get every color I needed in a cone except for blue.
Then I came home and while Phalen rode his bike I battled with Finn to take a much needed nap . . . all the while I was working on that pixie dust! I'd LOVE to show y'all a picture of the finished product, but then D~ wouldn't be surprised . . . I DID take pictures though . . .
I then had to find a box for this pixie dust. Searched high and low, found one, put everything inside - taped the box shut, wrapped the box in brown postal paper, taped it up. . . and then realized I hadn't put the shirt D~ had me pick up for her at the Disney Outlet in
There was no way I was unwrapping that box . . . so I put the shirt in a gallon ziploc bag and taped it to the box and then wrapped the whole thing in MORE brown postal paper and taped it up. I'd love to share pictures, but they're on my phone and it doesn't want to cooperate with my computer.
Yes... that was a nice little chat.

I am dying to see what's inside of the box, seeing as I know what's outside the box. BTW... That was so nice of you to send me a picture of the box... Just wait until the next time you take a trip...

D~ <--- who is uber tired and can't keep her eyes open any longer, but I had a can of diet Cherry Coke with dinner tonight, and dd #2 is babysitting at the neighbor's... I don't like going to bed with out all my kidlets all tucked into bed.

No you don't You want to be surprised! :D

I was, however, giggling like crazy last night when I figured out how to post those pictures without you being able to see them

Today I have to excavate my room and hallway from the piles of laundry (at least a lot of it is clean and just needs to be put away). I also need to clean up my sewing area (have to deal with the laundry first as DH thought my sewing area was a good place for clean clothes) and make an attempt to clean the rest of the house ... and all of this has to be done AFTER church (which doesn't start until 10:40). My little sister (sorority, not blood, but might as well be) called on Friday to say she wanted to stop and see me on her way back from Raleigh on Monday!!! We have totally lost touch the last couple of years and I miss her.

That is not fair that you have so many places for fabric shopping.

But we definitely will take them there to Ryco's and Just Fabric. RI is great in the summer

But I really want to go to NYC and shop in the Garment District. My mom went last year and only got to go in a few stores.

Sorry, but that'll teach DH to use you're sewing space for clean clothes storage, because you'll just pile everything on the bed.

Have fun with your little sister today. Glad you'll get time to reconnect.

OMG! That's it! We're going! My mom & I have been planning a trip to NYC for fabric shopping this summer. . .you're going to have to come with!
Anyone else want to join us? I'm telling you, if I could become a travel agent for the Disboutiquers I could maybe actually afford this fabric addiction

And, I can tell you, there is no place on earth that I've found so far as Just Fabric. I would be in SERIOUS trouble if I lived in RI full time!!! Even Mary Jo's, while beyond awesome, cannot hold a candle to Just Fabric's Disney stuff (and Just Fabrics beats anyone's prices that I've found!).

Hehehe - The problem is the table in my sewing area. . . I try to keep it cleaned off so it's ready to go when I need it . . . it also happens to be on DH's side of the bed so it becomes his 'catch-all' . . .

okay! must run! DH made pancakes!!!

I LOVE! your trip report. It's so much fun to read. I could just squeeze your boys to pieces. Thanks for the sweet words!


I WANNA COME!!!! I'll bring my PE770 so y'all can burn it up. I have a nephew that lives in Concord with his Mama. And my parents have a second home in Hayesville, NC we go to ALLL the time since my middle brother lives there. I really love NC, I think if I didn't live in Georgia, that would be my next choice. And I have ALWAYS been a HUUUUUGE Duke Blue Devils (basketball) fan.

Then y'all are welcome to ATL to stay with me. Lets pick a week when my hubby is out of state/country with business and you can even bring your kiddos. We have five bedrooms so there's plenty of room for everyone. We'll order pizza and live on Disney movies. We don't really have great fabric stores here tho so we'll have to buy all our fabric in NC and then sew it all up here. hehe!! Or just site see.

Ooooh - that sounds fun!!! We could do that... Lets not do Disney movies, lets just take a road trip to Disney...

Beth, I have a whole list of things I could do with that machine of yours.

I am LOVING these summer trip plans, ladies! FAB-U-LOUS!!!!

I'm going to work on some more TR pages tonight . . . hope to get them uploaded to photobucket and posted tonight, but if not, sometime tomorrow

We are in the beginning of another crazy storm here in Charlotte tonight I don't understand WHAT is going on with the weather!


OH! And I mailed D~'s pixie dust this morning . . . as it turned out, the cheapest way to send it was in the medium flat rate priority shipping box . . . so all of my crazy packaging was for naught. I DID just slip the whole thing INTO the flat rate box though, so hopefully when D~ gets it on Thursday she'll take some "un-wrapping" pictures
