I don't know if anyone has replied to this post, but I am from East TN. I might be a little biased, but I love it this time of year. They have wonderful light displays and lots of great things to look at without spending a lot of money. The mountains alone are worth going for IMHO. There is also a lot of outlet shopping if you do have $$ to spend. It's usually fairly easy to rent a cabin or nice hotel room for a resonable. price. My husband is active duty Marine Corps, so I don't live there now, but I miss it so much. It can get busy/crowded at times, but it is still quaint and definitely worth seeing this time of year. Plus, you might even run into Dolly!

Thank you! I never would have been able to do it myself until I got my embroidery machine. Shhh I opened it early, it's supposed to be a Christmas present. I'm so excited to see what else I can do now.

Thanks, I hope he likes it. He is super picky about wearing things I make even when he gets to pick things out. I left the tags on the sweatshirt so maybe he will think it's from the store and wear it

Thanks. I know how you feel trying to get everything done. I start my new job tomorrow and work the next 3 days 10 hour shifts and my neice and nephew came in today and a lot more family coming in on Saturday so I scrambled the last few days. I think I am done except for making a fleece blanket that should go pretty quick though. Good luck getting everything done!

I am right with you all feeling the crush of last minute projects. I did get two major projects done today, so my to-do list is dwindling. I finished my nephew's Denver Broncos bowling shirt (they live in Colorado and are huge Broncos fans, and what do you know I found this fabric in the remnant bin, my favorite place!)



I also finished a quilt for my good friend, but since she follows me on nearly every social media, I am not posting it until she gets it for Christmas.

The last thing I wanted to get done before Christmas was make PJ pants for the kids, possibly the adults too, but if I don't get to it I am not going to be too worried. I am just so glad I was able to be productive after my hubby got home, I had the WORST day with the kids I have had in a long time, one literally laid on the floor face down kicking and screaming for 45 minutes and it is not clear even now what the heck he wanted. The other decided that during dinner he would take a huge mouthful of water and spit it out all over himself, his food, the table, etc. so they both went to bed SUPER early. And now I think I will too!

Hugs for the rough day. I have to say though that I that shirt. I used that same Broncos fabric to make me a pair of easy fits a few years ago and I wear those pants almost every Sunday. I think next year I will make a new pair, mine is looking rather faded and worn compared to yours. I'm sure your nephew will love that shirt!!!

Mostly selfishly posting. I'm supposed to be packing so we can head out (already had to delay once because I wasn't finished with those darn dresses. The applique took me WAY longer than I anticipated....can I just say that all you who own embroidery machines should hug them tight tonight and thank them for existing!)

First the Rapunzel inspired Simply Sweet.



And then the New Year's Eve dresses. These Grace Ruffle dresses were inspired by one of the dresses that appeared in one of the Main Street Boutiques auctions created by HeavenLeighBlessings Boutique. I made it "my own" but feel that it has such a similar theme/set up that I wanted to give him/her credit (mine PALES in comparison). I do not sell and these dresses were created at cost for my friend's trip, so I truly hope I don't step on any toes for making them.

Front/back

Lighting a little better in this one and shows off the colors a little more:


Hope everyone has a great few days. I'll be on the road and unable to keep up for a few days. Hope you all don't sew up a storm while I'm gone!

the shirt looks great. I should make another one for my DS but I have so many other things I want to make still. I can't wait until after Christmas to see the quilt you made. Good luck with getting the pants done, I was just reminded yesterday that I had blankets to make still... UGH !!

I'm sorry your kids were acting up yesterday. maybe the holidays are just too much for them.

The dress looks great. Where did you get the castle image ? that looks awesome.

So, two more days until my daughters 16th birthday party, her birthday is today, and I might just get a gift on that day too. My Aunt is bringing down her embroidery machine for me to use since she never does. I don't know what kind it is or anything about it except she bought it for business and found she doesn't use it so I get to play with it as long as I want. YAY !! All I know is that it's going to cost me money anyways with making sure I have all the right thread and buying things to make with it.

It's productive procrastination when you do one thing in avoidance of another...not that I'm saying you were avoiding packing.

I love the whoel Mickey/Minnie/Castle scene. Truely a beautiful piece of work.

I have some of that fabric from a remnant bin as well. I have a friend who's a Bronco fan and I'm going to make her a Kindle sleeve.

Hope today was better with the kids.

I am so far behind on everything. Since Thanksgiving it's been one thing after another: family illnesses, work issues, etc, so I haven't even started on one gift, realised that my original idea won't work for another and half finished a third. I'll be glad when new years comes.

Thanks! My brother is a super fan, so much so when I said we would be baking and decorating cookies for Santa on sunday he said he would have to fake a trip out to go christmas shopping and go find a local bar to watch the Bronco game. I have a feeling my brother might be jealous that my nephew gets such a cool shirt.

Both dresses are outstanding, but the applique castle/fireworks/mickey and minnie are outrageously adorable. I love the colors and the ruffles are so fun. So cute. I think spending new years eve at Disney World has to be amazing.

So far not much better with the kids. Had to go to Joann and pick up another thing of buttons for the Broncos shirt since I cracked one and my kids were running around like crazies and we were actually next in line when one sprinted ALL THE WAY to the back of the store, so I had to carry him over my should whilst dragging the other by the hood of his sweatshirt back up front.

I made these naughty and nice shirts for them and I think I should have made them both say naughty!



Oh, and for the record, this is what I got when I sat them down to take these photos, couldn't have art directed a more perfect "naughty" shot...

Two family members are bugging me about it, but no time.

We understand that this is a busy time of the year. I hope to see pictures of your creations again soon!

It is exciting that you will have an embroidery machine to use. I am sure you will have fun playing with it!

Speaking from experience, being at Disney World on New Years Eve is not for the faint of heart. We were there to ring in 2008. It was wall to wall people on main street. The fireworks were amazing but DH and I agreed that we won't want to do it again as it was simply too many people for us!

Sorry to hear that you have another rough day with the boys. The naughty and nice shirts and the poses are cute. I hope tomorrow will be a better day for you.

So there's nothing like a healthy dose of procrastination. We leave tomorrow, and I just finished my sewing projects yesterday.

I made 2 twirl skirts for Chef Mickey's. Holy heck, these took forever.


Skirts for HDDR. I'm not thrilled with how long these are. I had grand plans, but they just didn't turn out how I envisioned. And I don't have enough time to change them, so this is how they stay.


And not sewing, but my pressed penny tubes and autograph books.

Everything looks great. Lots of work in that twirly skirt and sewing into denim.... whew ! If they are too long (below their knees) then you might have to add a little slit so they can lift heir legs to get into rides without the whole skirt going up. I would put it in the center back. but they look pretty. I like the penny and books. I know that book took a lot of time.

Skirts for HDDR. I'm not thrilled with how long these are. I had grand plans, but they just didn't turn out how I envisioned. And I don't have enough time to change them, so this is how they stay.


And not sewing, but my pressed penny tubes and autograph books.

Everything looks great. The patchwork skirts are a bit of work but they look so pretty and are great for twirling,

I love the eye spy bags. The kids probably loved them. I haven't had time to keep up with the mom's PTR so I haven't seen the pictures of them receiving the bags. As soon as I get a chance, I will go and look at the pictures.

Your Belle dress is wonderful! I love the sparkly fabric.

Yes, my girls are so sad that their trip has been canceled. It had been the thing that they had really been looking forward to. I am a little upset at my SIL for canceling the trip because within 2 days her back was better. But I guess they were worried that it would take much longer for her to feel better.

The cruise dress turned out great! I'm sure V must have loved it! Great job on your appliques!

That's so cute! I love the face on the back of the hoodie.

I haven't dropped completely off the face of the earth, just into my basement, scrambling to get a bunch of presents made for my kids and other family. I'm feeling the crunch and probably won't have any pics until after Christmas. I haven't even had time to post a few more pics from our trip here or on FB. Two family members are bugging me about it, but no time.
Hi Carrie! I hope you are able to get everything finished in time. Can't wait to see some pictures!

The last thing I wanted to get done before Christmas was make PJ pants for the kids, possibly the adults too, but if I don't get to it I am not going to be too worried. I am just so glad I was able to be productive after my hubby got home, I had the WORST day with the kids I have had in a long time, one literally laid on the floor face down kicking and screaming for 45 minutes and it is not clear even now what the heck he wanted. The other decided that during dinner he would take a huge mouthful of water and spit it out all over himself, his food, the table, etc. so they both went to bed SUPER early. And now I think I will too!
Love the shirt! It turned out great! I think you are the Queen of the Bowling Shirts!

Sorry you had a rough day with the kids. I can remember days like that. Sometimes I wonder if the tantrums were easier than the teenage attitude!

I love the Rapunzel dress. It turned out super!

Your Grace dresses are so great! I haven't done any hand applique but I am sure that those took hours and hours. Beautiful job! And no, I don't think that you stepped on any toes. Your dresses might have been inspired by another dress but they are quite different and very much your own.

The skirts all look great. I love the twirl skirts. I do agree that they are very time consuming to make. But they do look so pretty and the little girls just love them. All that gathering is hard work! Your other skirts are cute too!

I am falling behind on my sewing. I still need to make 6 Easyfit pjs for dolls (4 for AG dolls & 2 for Duffy) but all my kids have been home sick since Wednesday with some nasty cold and tomorrow my friends and I are having our annual fudge party. I can't believe we have been doing this for 15years

Thanks to a facebook group and here and Loree I was able to get it working properly. Lots of patience. my practice material was too thin and the stabilizer I used sucked. then on sunday it was the bobbins. My order of prewound bobbins hadn't come in yet so I went to the store sunday and bought some and then we started getting somewhere. (Of course the order of 144 bobbins for $60 came on sunday after i ran out to the sewing store sunday and bought janome prewounds , 15 for $15 ) then i dealt with the thread getting caught and bobbins in upside down. Finally on sunday It was working well enough that I started on the appliquees for the dress. I did the bodice and then had to redo after It got caught and nested. Loree put together the design for me! then the appliquees took me the rest of sunday and all day monday. Monday night I got the two shirts done. This am i drove out to V's house and dropped it off. I squished it all into a ziplock since they had no room in their suitcase I was told (I prewarned v's mom more than once that they were coming!) So I am assuming they all made their way to Florida today!

Here they are:
Simply Sweet Dress - 7 appliquees and 3 layers of ruffles (holy moly that was a lot of ruffles!) Super full, I altered the pattern so the pannels were 5 and 10 inches and the width of the skirt was 90 inches.

I am so glad you were able to figure it out.

The front is a red ninja

And the back is embroidered on the hood so when he has his hood up he will look like a ninja from behind
Great job. My boys love Ninjago

Even thought it is Bronco stuff (die hard NE Fan ) those shirts came out great.

First the Rapunzel inspired Simply Sweet.



And then the New Year's Eve dresses. These Grace Ruffle dresses were inspired by one of the dresses that appeared in one of the Main Street Boutiques auctions created by HeavenLeighBlessings Boutique. I made it "my own" but feel that it has such a similar theme/set up that I wanted to give him/her credit (mine PALES in comparison). I do not sell and these dresses were created at cost for my friend's trip, so I truly hope I don't step on any toes for making them.

Great job on the dresses. I love the mickey/minnie sitting on the bench. Is that handappliqued? It came out amazing.

Great job on the twirl skirt. And I love the autograph book.
