So glad Target let you off to go to the funeral. And very sorry you got sick on Chipotle! I can't eat it any more either for some reason. And it was a favorite!

Yes, you did ask how I got my machine to Virginia. I totally forgot to answer you. I actually drove here, so that made it easy. We always drive here. It's a six hour drive and I don't particularly love making it by myself, but I do what I have to do. I usually just put on some music I love and sing at the top of my lungs all the way. I figure it entertains my fellow travelers.

I love the job you did on the Cardinal bag. And what fun lining! It's probably fun to do something a bit out of the box, right?

Okay, those before and after shots have GOT to encourage you and make you smile! What a wonderful job you're doing. I know you will keep it up, and that's encouraging for the rest of us. I plan to get back to the Y when I get home and Dan and I like to go to a nearby park that has several walking trails in the woods. Hope the weather gets better so we can all get out and "blow the stink off" as they say. You are amazing!! Keep it up! And I will be very interested to see how Gus proves Whole Wheat is good. Processed is always bad!

Today is my last day here in Virginia. Jennifer gets her cast off at 10:00 today. She'll need lots of PT, but she is so excited to be cast free! I'll head home tomorrow!! Thank you so much for your support through this whole ordeal. It has really meant a lot to have so much encouragement from people I don't know IRL. But I do feel as though I know you!

Have a fun and productive day!

This sounds awesome! And it sounds like a lot of fun too.

Yes, I was a little surprised too. I honestly didn't think they would, but once I explained the situation, they were happy to. So, that was a relief.

Sounds like you all had a nice evening last night.
Yes, I just can't eat it anymore. Oh well...

I am very excited about it. I hope to wear skirts a little more often this summer.

You are doing great - that is how I started sewing is AG items... They are small, so the fabric you use is minimal - it's a great place to start.

I hope you were able to get all of your ADRs you needed. Personally - I love DDP, but that's just me.

I think I want to tackle scrapbooking our recent trip first though. I also really want to put together the shadowboxes from the girls' first trips. Too many projects and work takes up way too much time!

Hope you have a productive day! I have to have one here.
You should! That sounds so cute! You would be surprised at how quick they go together. I started another one last night (it even has a hidden zipper) and all I have left to do to it is add the bottom trim. Skirts go together so quickly.

It's OK - LOL - I knew what you meant. It did go well, and it's a relief to know that I have a "job" for another year.

I know - it was such a relief to get to go with her.

Thank you... It's been hard to be persistant sometimes, but I feel like it's starting to pay off.

I think this is cool. I have a few vintage pieces - by default... So I can see the appeal of them, as they just don't make it like they used to... That's with a lot of things - not just Pyrex. So, personally, I don't collect them - but those are the first dishes I pull out to use, as they are my favorites.

I love the colors, the lighter blue is very popular with Cardinal fans because of the team from the 80's (Ozzie Smith & Willie McGee days)
KatMark LOL! I knew there would be some anti Cardinal statements
Now I am hoping for an auction so I can get a Disney themed bag
Count me in on the road trip to Disney, that would be a blast! My one and only dismeet was because of my UPB Minnie... I was running to catch the monorail and luckily a very nice young lady spotted it and we were able to get a picture together with our bags
So very glad you like it! I love how the colors turned out!

I will definately count you in on our road trip.

I loved that Dismeet - it is one of my favorite. Chance meetings because of the bags I make - that's too cool.

I think the bag captures the spirit of St. Louis perfectly.
Thank you Tess!

I guess the universe had other plans for me....my car broke down on a two lane road - no place to actually pull over to get out of the travel lane - on a freakin' hill!. Called AAA for a tow - they told me it would be about an hour before the truck got there, but they would note that I was in a dangerous situation. 45 hair raising minutes later the tow truck comes - from AROUND THE CORNER! Really???? it took them 45 minutes to drive from 5 minutes away?????
Oh my gosh! How scary! I am so glad you are OK and nothing happened.

I know you didn't have a lot of time off available for this, so I hope it doesn't mess with any of your future days off. I am glad you were able to work it out before Charlie left though, and hopefully the repair isn't too costly.

Her next surgery (for reconstruction of her colon) will be on April 29, so Jim will be here until then. This time he will not be restricted to the base, so we should have a few opportunities to see him (and Kat too)!
This is great to hear! I hope you are able to get a chance to get some time with both of them. I hope her surgery goes well, please keep us updated.

Well, I really wanted to do Cardinals fabric, but I can't buy it in MN - they don't sell it here... And I couldn't find any online. So, I kind of had to use what I had that would work. I don't like doing that, but sometimes I don't have a choice. Considering that, I am very happy with how it turned out.

Thanks... I see the progress, but I also see so many more things I want to change. I guess, that's what keeps me going. I am nearly at my smallest ever adult size, and I never thought I would see it again... but now that I am here - I feel like I am not done... So, I will just keep going.

LOL - I am interested to see what Gus comes back at me with... He is taking a college nutrition class right now - which is full of Conventional Wisdom... So, I know it's a lot for me to ask of him to "think outside the box".

I would love it, if more people would realize that "healthy whole wheat" is the ultimate in processed food... Once you give that up, it really opens a whole new world. And honestly - I don't feel like I am missing out on anything.

I am so happy to hear that Jennifer is doing so well! I know you are anxious to go home, but I am certain it's going to be hard to say goodbye to the grands after being there for so long. Our continued prayers for Jennifer, please keep me updated if you can. And have a safe trip home.

************************************************** ********

I worked in my sewing room all day yesterday. I was able to get my next custom order started.

I had to run the girls to town after school yesterday, so that cut my work day short.

Last night, Josh had to go to town... So, I snuck back up to my sewing room and knocked out another skirt for myself. It's completely finished - I just have to add the bottom trim... It will be very cute with my red sandals.

That's about all for today...

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Prayers and good thoughts go out to everyone.

Good Morning D!

Congratulations on the before and after pictures! I agree you look amazing and all your hard work is really paying off! I wish I was brave enough to post pictures of my progress (but since I am a chicken), maybe I will just send them to you.....

Love the new bag too!

Another skirt?!?! You are super productive - you're making me feel like a total slacker. But, I will remind myself that your girls are much older and self sufficient than mine are so our time at home with them is probably quite different. I don't imagine you were cleaning up after potty accidents, fighting about homework and baths, or unexpectedly changing sheets after an accident - well, maybe fighting about homework

Hope you have a great day! I didn't get nearly enough done at work yesterday so I am slammed again today. Looking forward to the end of this week!

I love the Cardinal book. I'm not a St. Louis fan. the Cardinal is our high school mascot and is seen all over the place here.
I was inside most of yesterday. My daughter and niece took my almost 2 year old nephew to the park to play at the playground. I got to go out to the store's backyard to get a pallet jack sometime life isn't fair.
I'm love to see how your skirts turned out.
Have a great day. I'm going to my mom's and them grocery shopping for both of us.

There is no licensed MLB fabric available. Used to be, but not anymore.

Kate told me that she loves the two-zip hipster I made for her and asked if I could make one a bit larger so she could put her ipad in it and in a baseball theme. This I can do! I have a plan.....

Another skirt! I need to get on the ball. I wear skirts or dresses a lot in the summer since they are cooler than slacks and dressier than capris for work. Not so much in the winter, since that walk from the parking lot to the office is windy and cold - and about 3 blocks long.

Good morning D - all caught up (again); I did not get on in time to see your progress pics - can you PM them to me? I am so very proud of you! You should be proud of yourself D.

Love the shoes - keep the red! They will always go with something. But I vote blue for the skirt.

D - I was going to PM you this morning, I am a pretty close to the vest person. But there are some things that stand out on everyone's posts to this awesome thread that made me realize I should just put my request out there for everyone. Most of the people who have kept up with your thread are Moms to children of various ages, and they believe in the power of prayer. And God has instructed us to call upon other Christians in time of need. I am not going to go into detail, but I need a lot of prayer for my youngest son. We have been dealing with a lot of issues these past few years with him; but yesterday a lot of things came to the forefront that were just devastating to me as his mother. Unfortunately, he and his Dad have a very strained relationship, so I cannot share this burden with him. It would only make things worse right now. I am just relying on prayer and the guidance of God and other people I am reaching out to today. Thank you all so much.

Have a wonderful day D - sending prayers and hugs to you and your family and Dad.

D, I couldn't see your progress photos but you are a big inspiration to me. I'm trying. I got frustrated went off the bandwagon when things got really busy and tough at home but slowly getting back on.

Love the new bag too!
Thanks Tasha! I would love to see your progress pictures if you are brave enough to send them. I am very excited that you may be meeting up with us while we are in Chicago!!!

I know... I have a sickness... I started a 3rd skirt last night...

Yes, my girls are MUCH older and much more self sufficient... I remember those days - but I like the girls being independent too.

Can't say I am a Cardinals fan either... If anything - I am a Twins fan.

That explains why I couldn't find any.

I know! I started a 3rd one last night... I think I have a problem. Now I need to find a reason to wear all these skirts! LOL Maybe I can be like Junie Cleaver, get out my pearls and wear all these skirts while I am sewing?

Hi Carol! Sure, I can PM them to you. Sorry I took them down so quickly - but I am half dressed and I have issues posting things like that.

Figures... Now I have to figure out how I am going to explain all these shoes to Josh... That's going to be the hardest part!

Most of the people who have kept up with your thread are Moms to children of various ages, and they believe in the power of prayer. And God has instructed us to call upon other Christians in time of need. I am not going to go into detail, but I need a lot of prayer for my youngest son. We have been dealing with a lot of issues these past few years with him; but yesterday a lot of things came to the forefront that were just devastating to me as his mother. Unfortunately, he and his Dad have a very strained relationship, so I cannot share this burden with him. It would only make things worse right now. I am just relying on prayer and the guidance of God and other people I am reaching out to today. Thank you all so much.
Oh Carol. This saddens me... Of course you have my prayers. I hope that whatever it is that's going on, there will be a resolution with out much hurt - and it's even harder if there is a strained relationship with a parent. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, and if there is anything else I can do - please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you Carol. Same to you. I am planning to go up to my Dad's tomorrow - but we are in a winter storm warning - so we will see how the roads are then.

I sent them via PM on FB... Hopefully they loaded there - I was having issues on my end. You can do this Erin... It's not about being perfect - it's about perseverence.

Thanks Sandra - for everything!

************************************************** ********

I worked in my sewing room all day yesterday. I was able to get a lot accomplished. I am missing one thing for my applique - so I think I will be doing this bag "out of order" from what I normally do, so I don't have to make 2 trips to town today.

I started a 3rd skirt last night... I know - I am pretty sure I have a skirt sickness. Now I have dreams of making one (or 6) for Disney... Seriously... I am a DENIM person - I am NOT a skirt person... So, I better wear these. I did take a couple of quick pictures yesterday morning - I posted them on FB, but I thought I would post them here too... Forgive the awkward photos - I had to stand on my tippy-toes to get the bottom hems into the pictures...








I do have to say... I love the fabrics of the coral/blue skirt - but I think I love the black/white skirt better. That is the tank top I plan to wear with the coral/blue skirt - but I plan to wear my jean jacket over the top of it. I purposfully made the black/white skirt so I would have a skirt to go with the red shoes... I just love how it turned out - I adore the black/white mirror image fabrics. And now I have a 3rd one in the works too... To go with the red shoes... Yup - it's a sickness! I must be done after this, for a while... I am a bit worried that they will be too big by the time I can wear them, so I will have to rip them apart and make them smaller.

I am planning to head up to my Dad's tomorrow for the weekend. But we are in a winter storm warning through tomorrow morning, so I am really going to have to play it by ear and see how the roads are. It's main interstates most of the way, so we'll see... Alli is planning to go with me - she hasn't been up since Christmas.

************************************************** ********

Just a quick - sad - trip update... Some of you may have heard the news... I can no longer get my Team Memeber/Pharmacy Rewards discount on Disney GCs... This saddens me greatly - as I am no where near being close to being paid off, this is a HUGE set back in our trip budget. A trip I've been struggling to pay for in the first place. I will keep you all updated, but it was such a bummer... However - I am happy I was able to use it for as long as I was able to. Hopefully I am able to find a way to make it all work out.

I hope you all have a marvelous day... My prayers are with all who have asked for them... And my good thoughts go out to everyone else.

D~

Love the Cardinals bag....two nice combinations. A bag from D~ and the best team in baseball!!! That's a win-win.

Super proud of your lifting and eating efforts, they sure are paying off. Congrats!!

Sorry they discontinued those discounts for you. We were just excited to use our red card to buy Disney gift cards for the upcoming trip.

Will this Winter. Ever. End......ugghhhh! It was warm here for a couple days, but has turned back to cold again. Travel safe and have a great time with your Dad.

I love the black and white skirt, too! I love colors but this fabric is very classy. You definitely need to wear your skirts in Disney. You will look so cute and think how cool and comfortable they will be in August.

That is too bad about the extra discount being discontinued for the Disney gift cards. Is Target still going to give 5% off when using the red card?
