I have been debating the pe770 all week. saw it had gone down in price a bit the other day. I checked it tonight to see it had gone down again. I was debating on where or not to wait and see if it went down a bit later so I tuned into Disboutique and saw Judy's post abouther another $30 off. The $30 didn't show up until the very end so poor Judy was dealing with my "where is it?" BUT it was there! so My Brother PE770 is now on its way!

THANK YOU JUDY!!!!

To Any Canadians Interested my price with duties and shipping was $706
Congrats on your purchase. I am sure you will have lots of fun creating special outfits and other things with it. That's a great price for the machine (considering how much they want for similar machines up here).

Thank you very much for the update during this difficult time for your family. I have been praying for your family since your last post and I will be thinking of your family in the upcoming days. I am glad that others on here created such special memory for your family.

That's my Thanksgiving story: I came home from work Wednesday and my refridgerator's condensor was not kicking on & everything in the freezer section had defrosted. Still not working yesterday so we went ahead and ordered a new refridgerator to take advantage of those black Friday sales. Low and behold, this morning...the refridgerator is working again.

DH doesn't trust it anymore, so we're sticking with the one we ordered Thursday.

And still, with all of that, I managed to get some work done on a Christmas present.
I am sorry to hear that your fridge is not behaving. I hope you didn't lose too much food as a result. I hope you managed to get a good deal on the fridge!

stopping by quickly to say "hi". I've been blessed to be visiting my family all week and will be here at my gma's for another few days.

I didn't grab quotes since I'm once again so behind!

Diane: praying for your husband. Please keep us posted as you find out more about the mass. Also, double pinafore dress was so sweet! I hope your niece enjoys wearing it.

Wendy: praying the surgery to remove your gallbladder goes smoothly and you are feeling much better in no time.

Dawn: I am so sorry for your family's loss. Praying for peace and comfort.


peachygreen: loving all the action shot photo's you've been posting. Thank you for sharing!

Andrea: i am SO GLAD you are feeling more like yourself! And although I'm bummed that the offer wasn't something you could accept, I hope it is soon followed by more, bigger offers that you CAN. Kid's costumes looked great!

Flora: glad your party went well and that the recipient liked the gift you made.

So hopefully the new medication will help ASAP!!

But especially I am thankful that you guys are thinking of Steve and Sue and the kids. This weekend I cranked out a bunch of shirts. Im not sure Sue is ready for hers yet, this kinda puts things in reality, but, the rest of the family was ready to show their love and support. Heather helped me with the design and I love how it turned out!!!!!

I'll be praying for you! I love those shirts, Heather did a great job on the design. I owuld wear one.

It scared dh and I enough that we decided I should go to Urgent Care. Turns out they can't completely rule out a heart attack, so after an EKG, they decided I needed to go to the ER for blood tests. After getting there, they decided to keep me overnight to do a stress test on Tues. (If we weren't going away, I could have done it outpatient.). I didn't get released until after 4pm on Tues. I lost a whole 24 hours of work time to find out I'm perfectly healthy. BUT I really was in pain and had no idea what it was. I'm pretty embarrassed by the whole thing, honestly, but at least we don't need to worry about it on vacation.

Here are my last few items:

T- shirts for one day at Epcot and Chef Mickey's dinner


My Snow White shirt:


Cold weather gear, just in case


Close-up of felties I added to the coats:


I'll try to post some action shots next week!

Glad you are doing better and it doesn't seem serious. Love all the stuff you made but especially love those fleece jackets. What a great idea! Have a great trip!

Yesterday he was admitted to the hospital and we were told to expect surgery that day. It turns out that my husband has a very large mass in his thyroid. He will have surgery but they have decided to send him to a surgeon who specializes in head and neck surgeries. It will probably take several days before we know what kind of mass it is and exactly what to expect. We are praying that it isn't cancer and that it is some other kind of mass.
Prayers for your DH and hope it is nothing too serious.

I ended up with alcohol which is funny as we don't drink. Oh well, I will add it to our collection for entertaining.
Happy to hear the exchange went well. You can always regift the alcohol if you don't add it to your collection.

Congrats to you too!


So I haven't been on for a few days. A couple days ago my dad asked what I wanted for Christmas. I told him I wanted an embroidery machine but didn't have high hopes. Wednesday he wanted to see it so I pulled it up on Amazon and the price was $550. I told him that was the lowest I had ever seen it. He thought about and yesterday he said he wasn't planning on spending that much on me but to go ahead and order it. Imagine my surprise today when I saw the price and then saw the additional $30 off. My mom has Amazon Prime too so I got free shipping! I had to promise I would not open it and act surprised at Christmas so I still have to wait.

I know Andrea posted awhile back a whole post of additional stuff to get so thank you very much, I will be getting a few things to go into my stocking. I know I've seen on here before what thread to use but I can't remember, do you usually use Rayon or Polyester? Thanks for the help.

I'm trying to catch up again after not checking in for a couple of days. Everything looks wonderful.
I decided to use Disney Christmas fabric for my grandkids' Christmas outfits this year just because it's fun. But now it turns out they will get to wear them to see the Christmas decorations when we go to WDW on Monday
I used the Disney fabric for the appliques on my granddaughter's shirt and the bottom ruffle on her skirt.


And I used the Disney fabric for my grandson's vest.

How exciting that you are getting the embroidery machine that you've wanted. Congratulations! I see a few other people picked it up for that great price too. I've never seen it for such a good price! I use both rayon and polyester. I know that some people prefer one over the other but I don't really have a preference. I asked the Marathon rep at the Sewing Expo in October and they said that there really isn't much difference between them either.

Those turned out great! And how nice that they will get to wear them at Disney!

Congratulations to everybody who is joining the embroidery machine club with their new PE770! It was great that Judy posted about the sale. I've never seen such a great price on them!

I gave my niece the Goofy/Chanukah dress when they were here on Friday. She didn't love it. LOL! My SIL and BIL did love it though and said she would definitely be wearing it. My niece didn't love it because the sleeves were a little bit long on her. I'd purposely made them a big long because she is growing very quickly and has outgrown a bunch of stuff that I made her over the summer. Once we pointed out how we could turn up the cuffs, then she liked the dress. I have a shirt that I bought to make my nephew a matching Chanukah t-shirt and another one to make a Goofy t-shirt. I just need to get some time in my sewing room.

My DH and I went to see a head and neck cancer specialist at Georgetown University Hospital yesterday. DH will have a biopsy done one day next week and we will get the results the following week. He will definitely have to get his thyroid removed, probably in mid-December but we are not exactly sure of the timing. They determines that while my husband's case is considered urgent, there is no need to rush into emergency surgery before getting biopsy results. Anyhow, the dr yesterday said that due to a few other symptoms that DH is having, he is leaning towards the large mass in the thyroid being caused by some kind of auto-immune disorder. But that the other likely cause is a very aggressive type of thyroid cancer. We won't know until we get the biopsy results so we are in for a couple of tense weeks.

Please post pictures of your casserole carriers when you are done! The alcohol we got included a small bottle of rum which I actually wanted. We go through 1/4 cup of rum a year to make Christmas cake cookes and we were getting low. We are good for another 5 years or so before we need to buy any alcohol now!

Congratulations on getting the embroidery machine! I am sure you will like it very much. I use rayon as I had some poor results with polyester in the past (it could be the brand I used though) Also, I thought I read somewhere that you could iron an embroidery done in rayon but not polyester thread, but I am not 100% sure.

I am glad that your niece decided she liked the dress after she found out about folding up the sleeves!

Thank you for the update on your husband. I hope his thyroid removal surgery will go smoothly and he will have a quick recovery. I certainly hope that the mass is caused by an auto-immune disorder that can be treated. Please know that your family is in my prayers and please continue to let us know how he is doing.

Beautiful stuff! I always cruise this thread for inspiration before I start sewing for our trips. Unfortunately my 11 yr is balking at customs this year, but I do have some grandkids to sew for and my husband will wear anything!
I am in full sewing mode, so hopefully will have time to post some stuff. Working on Tinks' winter outfit today. Yesterday I spray painted some boots green ( purchased at a Blck friday sale for $12) My DD says she will wear it to BBB. We will see...

I haven't been on since two days before TG, and there's so much to quote! I know I probably missed something, so sorry.

I wish I had done the hull of the boat in dark blue instead of black. But overall I'm pretty happy with it.
I think everything is adorable! Love the little buttons on the dress. And I do like the black boat hull.

On a side note, please excuse the carpet, for some reason in the pictures, it looks disgustingly gross and dirty, in reality they are not like that, I hope

Here are the pants, kinda hard to see, but have dogs all over them:



So of course, I thought he needed a matching shirt, so I took one of his older shirts apart, made it bigger, and used it as a loose guidline and make a jammie top. I was too lazy to drive 30 miles to the nearest fabric store, so I used flannes sheet for the main fabric, and scraps for the accent fabric to match the jammies. Here is what it came out like:



He decided he didn't like it because the neckhole was too big, and he prefers to wear normal everyday tshirts anyway, so I decided instead of throwing it away, I would keep it and make it mine. Of course I couldn't just have a jammie top, so I got out the sheet and what was left of the dog material scrap and made myself shorts. I think the jammie outfit turned out pretty cute, and comfy too!
Great job and good save on the jammie top! Count me among the ones at the fact you can wear your DS's shirt!

I created a new hem but found out I cut them slightly too short so a ruffle bottom was born. It is not 100% perfect but I think pretty darn good for winging it and using my newly found gathering skills..(tiny tiny bit of skills)
Nice job!!

So hopefully the new medication will help ASAP!!

But especially I am thankful that you guys are thinking of Steve and Sue and the kids. This weekend I cranked out a bunch of shirts. Im not sure Sue is ready for hers yet, this kinda puts things in reality, but, the rest of the family was ready to show their love and support. Heather helped me with the design and I love how it turned out!!!!!

I LOVE these shirts!! Never give up hope!!

It scared dh and I enough that we decided I should go to Urgent Care. Turns out they can't completely rule out a heart attack, so after an EKG, they decided I needed to go to the ER for blood tests. After getting there, they decided to keep me overnight to do a stress test on Tues. (If we weren't going away, I could have done it outpatient.). I didn't get released until after 4pm on Tues. I lost a whole 24 hours of work time to find out I'm perfectly healthy. BUT I really was in pain and had no idea what it was. I'm pretty embarrassed by the whole thing, honestly, but at least we don't need to worry about it on vacation.

Here are my last few items:

T- shirts for one day at Epcot and Chef Mickey's dinner


My Snow White shirt:


Cold weather gear, just in case


Close-up of felties I added to the coats:


I'll try to post some action shots next week!

First of all, how scary about your chest pain! So glad you're okay.

I love everything you made but I'm especially crazy for the Epcot shirts!! Have a magical trip! (and a safe one)

Yesterday he was admitted to the hospital and we were told to expect surgery that day. It turns out that my husband has a very large mass in his thyroid. He will have surgery but they have decided to send him to a surgeon who specializes in head and neck surgeries. It will probably take several days before we know what kind of mass it is and exactly what to expect. We are praying that it isn't cancer and that it is some other kind of mass.
Awww, prayers for you and your DH!

I decided to use Disney Christmas fabric for my grandkids' Christmas outfits this year just because it's fun. But now it turns out they will get to wear them to see the Christmas decorations when we go to WDW on Monday
I used the Disney fabric for the appliques on my granddaughter's shirt and the bottom ruffle on her skirt.


And I used the Disney fabric for my grandson's vest.
Great job! Isn't it fun to sew for the grandkids?! (I love that Disney Christmas fabric!)

I'd purposely made them a big long because she is growing very quickly and has outgrown a bunch of stuff that I made her over the summer. Once we pointed out how we could turn up the cuffs, then she liked the dress. I have a shirt that I bought to make my nephew a matching Chanukah t-shirt and another one to make a Goofy t-shirt. I just need to get some time in my sewing room.
Kids will tell you the truth about things, that's for sure. I'm glad she liked it after the sleeve issue was resolved. I made a Christmas bowling shirt for my 3 year old grandson and he wanted nothing to do with it when they were here for TG! I even splurged on $12 buttons in the shape of cars!!! (on sale of course) Oh well.

My DH and I went to see a head and neck cancer specialist at Georgetown University Hospital yesterday. DH will have a biopsy done one day next week and we will get the results the following week. He will definitely have to get his thyroid removed, probably in mid-December but we are not exactly sure of the timing. They determines that while my husband's case is considered urgent, there is no need to rush into emergency surgery before getting biopsy results. Anyhow, the dr yesterday said that due to a few other symptoms that DH is having, he is leaning towards the large mass in the thyroid being caused by some kind of auto-immune disorder. But that the other likely cause is a very aggressive type of thyroid cancer. We won't know until we get the biopsy results so we are in for a couple of tense weeks.
Isn't is something how your focus can change in a heartbeat! You go from everyday normal concerns to something like you're dealing with. My heart just goes out to you. Hang in there and take comfort in the fact that lots of people are keeping you in their prayers, including me!

I am in full sewing mode, so hopefully will have time to post some stuff. Working on Tinks' winter outfit today. Yesterday I spray painted some boots green ( purchased at a Blck friday sale for $12) My DD says she will wear it to BBB. We will see...
Sounds like you have quite a few projects on the go. Please share pictures when you are done!

It's too bad that your grandson didn't want the bowling shirt. I imagine he would change his mind between now and Christmas.

It made for a lot of special memories with my boys. Thank you again.

So sorry for your loss.

I use cotton woven, though some fabrics are better than others as you will see when you start appliqueing.

He thought about and yesterday he said he wasn't planning on spending that much on me but to go ahead and order it. Imagine my surprise today when I saw the price and then saw the additional $30 off. My mom has Amazon Prime too so I got free shipping! I had to promise I would not open it and act surprised at Christmas so I still have to wait.

Congrats

Thanks for the prayers. We don't know what day next week they will do the biopsy but we'll be quite nervous until we get the results back.

I definitely spent more on Heather's designs than I should have spent! I didn't know that Jessica had a sale too!

I guess that my niece decided that she did like the dress because she wore to our belated Thanksgiving dinner tonight. But she wouldn't wear the pinafores. My BIL tried to get her to wear the Chanukah pinafore but told him that it was the wrong holiday. So my SIL tried to get her to wear the Goofy pinafore and told her that it was for their trip to Disney and she had to save it for the trip. She is definitely a kid with her own opinions!

Thank you so much for the kind words and the prayers. Yes, I do agree that it is amazing how quickly your focus can change from every day concerns to something much more important. I will definitely keep everybody updated but I am sure it will be another 10 days or so before we have any additional information. It will be a tense several days for us.

I hope you didn't end up spending as much at Heather's sale as I spent!

I looked on the YCMT pattern sale but didn't see anything that I couldn't live without!

Here is one more enabler alert. I hear that Designs by Juju is having a great sale too. I have never purchased any of her designs so I can't vouch for the quality. But they certainly do look cute!
