I bookmarked the site. There are a couple of really cute things I saw on it.

Just gorgeous! Your appliques and your material were so perfect for your theme. The dress turned out great. It is no wonder your dd got a lot of attention for wearing it. How awesome!


Has anybody heard from Andrea lately??? It has been a while since she's been on here unless I missed her.

I made two pairs of shorts today and I have three more pieced together and ready to cut and sew. The hardest part was piecing together the knit fabrics after I cut the t-shirts open. I have learned to shop for the t-shirts in the men's section instead of in the kids section. Bigger t-shirts would make this pattern a lot easier! But the shorts are turning out very cute!

I've seen so many beautiful outfits with disney characters on them and wondered where do you guys get your embroidered designs?

My question is are all of you making your own designs or buying them somewhere other than the brother site (which doesn't have the simple designs i'm looking for). I thought there would be a way to take JPG files and transfer or digitize them to PES files without spending another $300 on software (after the machine purchase).
Welcome to the group and congratulations on your new machine. I am sure you will be turning out some lovely things before you know it.

Most people on here buy their designs and a few make their own. I saw that Chiara gave you a list of designers that we often buy from. There are also a few more that I like. There are Lynnie Pinnie, Just Peachy Applique and GlitzyStitches. Lynnie Pinnie and Just Peachy have their own websites and Glitzy Stitches is mostly on Etsy. If you register on the different designer's sites, they often have sales which make getting designs very reasonable.

Has anybody heard from Andrea lately?

Thanks so much for the sites, I'm so in love with some of these designs! I'm super excited to figure out how to make some of these designs and learn to appliqué.

I lost all my quotes so lets see how I do...

Love how the Rapunzel dress turned out, looks like your GD loves it!

Sorry so many people didn't have much luck with the capes. Hopefully they will all get over it and start playing with them, I know my DS would love one.

Love how the Wizard of Oz dress turned out!. that is alot of appliques but it looks great and love the fabric too!

Flora, hope you feel better soon. Traveling is definately no fun when you are sick. I have had a lingering cough for the last few weeks. I think it's finally on it's way out though.

Congrats on the new machine. I just got the 770 too and so far I am loving it, I'm sure you will love it too.

Andrea posted the other day on Lisa trip report. I haven't seen her over here in quite awhile though.

Bernina help update

Thanks for the replies. I did check to see that the outlet had power. I also made sure conections were solid.
The Bernina shop quoted about $200 for a new motherboard if that is what is needed. I feel that is worth it fix a machine of this cost. These machines cost thousands right?

I am so exicted by all the designs I see here on the thread and can't wait to get started. Anyone here happen to live in MD so they can tutor me?

I would love to see another of your casserole covers. They make such great gifts that everyone can use.

How sweet that you're now sewing for your Mom. That's adorable!
Well I felt ok today when I was travelling and at the meeting, then I got home and start to feel worse again. At least it was a very good meeting so I felt my time was well spent. I guess I just need to push through one more day and it will be the weekend!

Welcome! I see that you question about the embroidery file sources has been answered. Please come back post pictures of your creations!

Did you bring the machine into the shop or did they quote that over the phone? I just wonder if it may be worthwhile having a technician look at it and do a general maintenance "spa treatment" to make sure you won't run into other problems after the motherboard has been replaced. (And to make sure that the motherboard is indeed the problem)

Andrea is a busy lady; however, she hangs out over on my thread (when she can)...or I should say OUR thread! All are always welcome. Andrea posted this morning...I miss her bunches when she is too busy!

That dress is outrageously stunning. I love all the details but those flying monkeys kill me with cuteness.

Glad you're feeling better. It seems everyone I know is sick, my kids have this terrible cold/cough thing that just won't go away. They cough all night which my husband can sleep through but I can't...

You can do LOTS without software. The places above are great, I have also had decent luck with non-disney stuff from etsy. I just recently bought an application to merge files and do basic editing, but I have an etsy shop so I am using it for customizing. Which is not to say my kids won't be getting PLENTY of things with their names.


And since I said I would share the quilt I made, and then Christmas came and went and I forgot, here it is. The photos aren't great because something is wrong with my camera and the light in my sewing room is terrible...
This is for a good friend who says her favorite color is all of them. I tried to make it as bright and cheerful as she is.







I was trying to use what I had fabric-wise so I pieced the back and I guess I measured wrong since it was not wide enough. I added the orange/green stripe on the right and it's crooked. Oh well, perfectly imperfect.

I did some machine quilting with my regular walking foot, and did each one of the "big" squares with a quilting pattern on my embroidery machine. I still need to make twin bed quilts for my kids so we can move them into said twin beds, and I think I will honestly send them out. This quilt was 64x64" and it was so cumbersome with my little ol' home sewing machine. So if anyone has ever outsourced quilting, send me a message...

goteamwood, Have you tried Vicks on the kids? I know I suggested it to one of my daycare parents and she bought the infant one as her son was under 2 and it helped a lot. The days she remembered to bring it he didn't cough during nap.

Lots of flu bugs around here, thankfully no one in the daycare but the school has lots of children at home.

I can't help with the patten but I will share that I got a camera strap called black rapid which I love. It's a shoulder/cross body thing that screws into the tripod hole. It's so much more comfortable and easy to use.
