Yay!!! I had to rethink what in the world you were talking about - LOL... I'd forgotten all about he Minnie outfit... I cannot wait to see her wearing it.

Again - the months are speeding past and she is growing so fast - while you are shrinking. Great job Momma!

Thanks D it has been a lot of handwork but it is something I have to do.

Here are 2 projects I finished this weekend.

A pillowcase for my cousins daughter


and this blanket and pillowcase is for my Godson for his birthday.


Our magic bands arrived but we have no FP+ because I have to pick up our APs but we are okay with that.

Today I am working on some other projects.

So I think it is time for one of my infamous sewing lists

Today I would like to

1. Pooh Applique
2. Jessie Applique
3 Minnie Cruise applique.
4 Cut 2 pillowcases for FE gifts
5. Embroider 2 names on pillowcases
6. Order materials for FE gifts.
7. Aurora Applique

I think that is a good amount to try and get done today.

It is crunch time so I have to be productive.

The picture of Sami at seven months is so adorable. She will look so cute in all her dresses on your upcoming trip.

Your progress over the last few weeks has been amazing. I applaud your continued efforts and the gusto with which you are doing your work outs.

I love the pillowcases and the blankets you made. The Sophia ones are cute and the Perry set is fantastic.

I swore I replied about the pillowcases/quilt, but I am not sure where I replied at? LOL

Love how they turned out - they were a lot of work, I am sure - so I hope that they like them! Love the fabrics too!

I hope you accomplished all of your list yesterday! I know you - and I am sure you did.

Well I didn't finish everything on my list but the launch dress is finished.

I am going to try and do one other. I did score a Sofia resell for Sami.

I have 2 orders to work on this month.

I also have to do a couple onsies for Sami for the trip.

Today I am working on

Jessie Onsie
Minnie Cruise Onsie
FE Gifts Pillowcases (Stitch and Pooh)

Luckily J and C are reusing there stuff and J has a couple things coming from fabulous Designer friends.

I can't wait until Sami is big enough for some of my designer friends.

I do need to get a Frozen shirt done for C (only thing she asked for)

I was going to try my hand at hand appliqué but though my carpel tunnel seems much better almost not noticeable my fine motor is still way off in my fingers.

Ordered supplies for the cruise portion of our trip. I rented our stroller. I need to call the car rental company to reserve a car seat.

Things seem to be coming together.

Hopefully pictures this afternoon.

Sounds like everything is coming together for your cruise!

Bummer about the hand applique - I sure hope it's something you are able to try soon! I think you would really like it, and you'd be good at it!

I can't wait to see what you are all making!

I can't wait to see the onesies for Sami and looking forward to your take on Frozen for C.

I did catch a glimpse of your Pooh dress (for the autciton, I guess) and it is so pretty. I really like the way you did the applique.

Soon you will be sailing away to warm weather.

I am in love with the launch dress. I need to work on a second item if I finish the 2 onsies and some more pillowcases. I have the fabric all picked out.

So I have finished 4 pillowcases and have 5 more to go for FE gifts. I will post a picture when they are all done. I am doing key chains for the adults.

Just thought I would share why I haven't been sewing as much and my progress for those of you not on Facebook.

Tried on Sami's Duffy dress and it still fits

So we have Duffy and a Villians Dress (that she never wore in October), along with a Sofia resell.

I am going to make a dress for Be our Guest for her and I need to make a Dale Jr. shirt for her to wear for the pre season race and then to wear again for our trip home (it is the Daytona 500 you know) . She started wearing a Dale Jr. shirt in September and he did well every race she wore it so yes we are superstitious.Ha Ha Ha.

Today I am hoping to finish the pillow cases I only have to embroider 2 more and then sew together 5 but 3 of them are cut out so it shouldn't take long.

I know I commented on FB, but I wanted to comment here too... LOOK AT YOU!!!!! Your progress just amazes me! You are shrinking every day! And I know you are feeling better too! Great job!

I hope you are able to get everything done that you need to today.

Only 2 more pillowcases and all of the ones for the FE group will be done.

I am working on a launch dress today and am hoping to stay home. I hate driving in the snow and Js new bus driver (who seems super nice, he is going to call me with updates this afternoon, so not to have a repeat of last week) said the roads are bad.

I should have pictures later.
