this came out so cute! I know your little princess will LOVE wearing it on her surprise trip!

And then dd wants a Germany outfit for her Christmas show -- does anyone know where I can get an applique for the flag? It would be easy to do by hand since it's stripes, but I'm not sure what thread colors to use where the black meets the red and the red meets the gold. I think Heather's Mickey heads would be too whimsical for this.
Hi! I hope your kitty is doing better and that you've made some progress on those 8 birthday shirts!

She had to take him yesterday to the children's burn unit in DC where they broke the blisters and medicated them and wrapped them again. The wraps have to stay on a week, but they were able to leave his thumbs and fingers out enough that he can use them. Never a dull moment!
Oh no! Praying his hands heal quickly!

I have read that the characters have an easier time signing with a fatter pen. The first pen we tried was one of the micron pens but it is just so skinny. We have also considered a sharpie but I don't want the ink to run. Has anyone made a quilt like this and found a marker that not only shows up but is permanent and easy for the characters to sign with? Thank you so much for your help - I really, really appreciate it!
In addition to using fabric markers and freezer paper on the back to stabilize the pre-cut squares, I remember that Nini also suggested using MASKING tape to tape off your seam allowances, otherwise some of the characters might use the entire square to sign and then when you go to sew them together some parts of the signatures will be cut off/hidden in the seam allowances.

that dress is just darling! Great job!

I was hoping to see how this one fit since I have material to make him a couple more for Christmas gifts, but he wanted nothing to do with it! Oh well. Here are a few pics:

Glad your granddaughter liked her skirt set so much. It's cute so I can see why! And I LOVED the Christmas Mater shirt. Hopefully your DGS will warm up to it!


Well, I'm giddy because I actually get to go fabric shopping tomorrow and start on my friend's dresses for her trip! They will be leaving the day after Christmas but I have to be done by the 15th since that's when DH gets off of work and we head out to start our Christmas travels. She only wants 5 dresses, so I SHOULD have enough time (if I don't procrastinate too much!).

I can't get the quoting down, but everyone's creations are fabulous!!!

QUESTION: I am making 2 patchwork twirl skirts (Carla C's pattern) for my daughters. I wanted to start working on them today at work. (I'm extremely lucky that I have down-time and can do whatever I want.) But I forgot to wash the fabric. If I cut the pieces without washing, is it going to be a big deal? Or should I just suck it up and wait?

I would wait to wash for a patchwork twirl but I wash everything as soon as it comes in the door so I am always ready to start something.

Thanks. I hid it in my car, because it's all for a surprise trip. And the outfits are going to be from Santa. Oh well, I'll wash it tonight.

I honestly haven't found it to be a big deal if I don't prewash the fabric. I don't always remember to prewash all my fabric so I often ended up with some prewashed pieces and unwashed pieces in my patchwork twirls. It has never caused me any problems. I do wash my creations before I mail them though.

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

I wanted to come on and update everybody what's going on with my husband. He had his biopsy on Friday morning. It was quite early and we were home by around 10:00. By 11:30, we'd already had a call from DH's surgeon moving up the surgery by 2 weeks. We haven't been told the results of the biopsy but are quite scared that they are something very bad. The various doctors have mentioned a concern about the possibility of this being a very rare and deadly form of thyroid cancer so am I very anxious to find out the biopsy results. Not knowing one way or the other is very hard. No matter what it is, my DH will be having surgery very early on Tuesday morning.

So sorry to hear this, its very nerve wracking not knowing. I will keep you guys in my thoughts and prayers.

Sorry, I haven't posted. I get so far behind and then need my computer to catch up, which ends up taking eternity. I have loved so many things that have been posted. I will try to do better.

This sounds very scary and the waiting must not be easy. I will be praying for your family, especially on Tuesday morning. I hope it is something benign.

I've been absent for a couple of days and don't have time to properly quote all the gorgeous work, but I did want to post after reading about Diane's dh....

DIANE: I am keeping your dh and family in my thoughts and prayers. If it is a bad cancer I hope the surgery gets everything and I truly wish your dh great success with the surgery and a pain free and speedy recovery. Please know I am thinking of you.

Hi Everyone,

First time posting here in this thread as I don't know how to sew. Anyways I bought some of that disney fabric that you can make super quick sun dresses where its smocked/elastic on top. I got them sewn together for the dress but I would like to add some ties on each shoulder to help it stay up a little better. What should I buy to make those ties? I hope you know what I am talking about.

Thanks for any help that you can offer me
Ashley
