I love your stockings. Its so neat to have matching stockings. I'm thinking I may need to make one or two new ones for the kids that have taken theirs to their own homes. I'm thinking maybe applique.....

So I went to the local thrift shops today. Goodwill did not have any sewing machines, but I didn't really expect them to. I had seen a cabinet machine at the other thrift shop last week, so I stopped in and it was still there, and marked down to $30. It was a Singer 247, which needed a belt, so there wasn't any way to test it out, so I took a chance and bought it. Brought it home and Charlie just shook his head...

Then I went shopping. Went to JoAnns and picked up the stuff I needed and a few other things. Isn't that always the way. Then I went to a couple of other stores and ended up at Kohls. I bought some Christmas gifts for my girls.

When I finally got home, and had time to check the machine out, it was not in great shape. I cleaned and oiled it and got it moving, but the bobbin hook was not working. One of the gears was completely falling apart and its in an area I cannot reach. So I am going to have to take my great bargain to the shop to have the gear replaced. It's all okay. The cabinet itself is worth at least $30.

I have all the blocks finished on the quilt and have started to piece the rows together. I picked up fabric for the backing.

Love Steamboat Willie! So cool that you were able to find the same prints in grey & red.

Love the stockings! So nice of V to help out! They look so great! The look like a great size too. I made some for my kids and I don't know what I was thinking-they are too big.

I am very excited about it though - it promises to be EPIC! I just love the fabrics and the theme is unique!

D~
Oooo. Can't wait to see an EPIC project but I think all of you creations are pretty epic!!!



Good luck with your ADR choices. I almost didn't book an early CP breakfast for Dec. It kills me to pay adult prices for Emma when I know she'll only eat a Mickey waffle and maybe a donut hole. But then I realized I would be disappointed if I didn't do it so I know I really have to go!

Have you ever thought of doing the tea at GF? I don't think you can use DDP there but depending on what you order it isn't too expensive but I haven't been in several years.

Wow D, I take some time off the boards and look what happens, started on page 5 tonight and had to stay up late to get caught up! Glad to see you are doing well; I thought your Cheshire bag was my all time fave, but then you go and put Steamboat Willie in the mix; no fair! I love, love, love this bag. You are awesome lady! And the stockings are amazing. I am trying very hard to stay caught up, you just make life a little easier sharing yours.

I have my little weekend at WDW planned in February, for the first time since 2007, and wouldn't you know it, the Touring site also states we will have CROWDS due to President's Day weekend; bleh. Oh well, my commando style will have to really kick in. I don't know what I am going to do our first day (Friday) with our flights getting in right after midnight. I will be up and rarin to go and DS's will have to be "coaxed" out of bed. That will be interesting.

Your PTR is rolling along. With the holidays you will have so much to share, and I am enjoying it all! Take care!

I hope so too. There's only a couple things I really want to get the kids this year and hoping for some deals on the Disney Infinity figures since I've already gotten the game. We enjoy going out but sometimes it's just for the people watching. I still laugh about what I saw a couple years ago. Towels were really cheap (and cheap quality) and people were literally throwing them to their friends/family in the back of the crowd and the people in the center of the crowd were grabbing them out of the air. I really thought a fight was going to break out over towels!! The other deals we like to go for are DVD/Blu Rays. We do pretty good by the time we're done.

Love the stockings!! They are all turning out great!! Glad V was willing to help you and helped save you some time in the long run.

I have to go to work for a short while today to get some work done but I am going to use Mabel today.
Thanks Chiara - it's so nice to finally see some progress on the stocking project.

I hope J had a better day yesterday. I can't imagine how frustrating that must be for you. (((Hugs)))

I hope you had a chance to work with Mabel yesterday.

Exactly! And I have the hardest time at MK... Just because there are so many favorites there... Crystal Palace breakfast and Liberty Tree Tavern lunch are 2 - and well, you can't do them in the same day, so that requires 2 seperate MK days... And now, we have to throw BoG in there too - which leaves dinner on the day we do CP... Which doesn't leave much room for any of our CS meals...

Not sure I will start any more sewing projects, as Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up. I already starting my holiday shopping and wrapping.
Thanks! The stocking project has become so much bigger than my brain thought it would be... I should have started them in Feb. Yay for making a dent in yours too - and how FUN to surprise your neice with her new stocking... So, did she notice it when she got home???

I have started my holiday shopping, but not the wrapping... I probably won't start wrapping until we get our tree up - considering that our wrapping paper is stored in a bin - which just stays in a corner of our livingroom during the holidays, so I don't have to haul it up and down from the basement every time I need to wrap something.

They were all patchwork and quilted on my long arm then cut out and assembled. They were a hit! (In fact, my son's family and my daughter's family uses theirs each year. ) We had 25 people for dinner that year.

The only complaint I got was I did not put their names on them...it was the year before I got my embroidery machine.

They are all asking for a redo...just don't know when I would ever have the time to do it!
Love your stockings!

Nini
Thanks Nini! I bet yours were really awesome! And what a cool way to decorate the table. Maybe not a redo - but you can do what I did and put all their names on felt squares and straight stitch them down... I know that mine look a little lazy for doing it that way - but it took so darn long to quilt all those cuffs, I didn't want to wreck them by not getting the names centered just right.

I wish we could see pictures of the ones you did - they sound great!

How cool - but bummer that you and NIL didn't get one... Hopefully - now that they've been found, MIL and SIL will make 2 for both of you?

Thank you Suzi - I will tell Josh.

I should have showed the interior fabrics again, because all of the stockings coordinate with the interior fabrics. So, I know the blue looks a little odd with the rest, but they coordinate. LOL

Great idea! I am just glad I didn't applique - I was thinking that yesterday, and WHOA!!! It would have blown this project out of the water and I never would have finished, I am glad I just did the quilted ones - that was a big enough task as it was. LOL

I am gld you found one... I hope it fixes up nicely for you. LOL at Charlie - Josh would do the same thing, although, it's been quite some time since I've brought a machine home, so I'd proabably survive. LOL

Thanks! LOL about the towel story... Some of those deals get to be pretty dangerous. I always do the DVD deals too - they make great stocking stuffers!

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

Well, I worked all day in my sewing room yesterday... I was very happy to get my next custom order cut out and quilted... I wasn't sure I would, since this bag has more pieces and larger pieces. But I finished! WHOOT!

We had left overs for dinner... I really need to get back to menu planning, I was doing so well at the beginning of the year - but I just get so tired of being the only one to plan out what we were eating, then hearing the complaints that's not what everyone wanted - so I just gave up. But now I have the endless "what's for dinner" dillema every day - which is almost more annoying. LOL

Last night was Zumba... I have one more class next week and then my 8 weeks is over already. I am still debating if I want to sign up for the short winter session... It's only 4 classes ($20) with 2 weeks off over Christmas. I just hate committing to it in the winter, now that it's dark so early, I am driving there and back in the dark - and if the roads are bad... Well, I guess I will just stay home? I need to decide with in the next few days.

Today I will be appliqueing all day. I woke up with a doozie of a headache... Alli was sick this weekend with stomach/headache/fever... I sure hope I am not coming down with it, because this is NOT a week I can get sick.

I am still waiting on BFF to read my email about ADR possibiliites... I think I will remind her today, so we can start eliminating a few - or adding on if there is something they really want to do that isn't on our list.

Speaking of our trip... I've started to narrow down our customs list... I have 3 bags I want to make for myself. V would like 1 bag. I am not sure if I will make one for Alli or not? I know I am going to completely redo her Up bag though, because her camera barely fit in there. I am not sure which of my bags I am reusing from our past trip... I am thinking I will use the Toy Story one and the Donald one, but leave Jiminy at home. I've been using Jiminy every day since we've been home and I really need to change him out - as I am starting to get really sick of him. LOL

I hope you all have a wonderful day...

Good Morning D!

Love the stockings! I like the color of V's the best!

I used to love BF too (when it was on Friday). Now I just do a little online shopping at my leisure because I refuse to interrupt our family time on Thanksgiving. Family time is worth more to me than money saved heading to the stores on Thanksgiving.

Have a great day!

I have found even planning what I am making in the morning helps me and I have seriously decided I don't care if anyone likes it or not anymore.

Good luck with everything today.

I can SO sympathize with you on the meal planning dilemma! I have the same issues. They all know we are on a TIGHT budget to save for the cruise. Do they think we can eat steak and lobster every night on that budget??? I tend to get in a rut with the meal planning, same meals over and over. But when I get complaints I just kindly offer for any of them to take over the task of meal planning with the budget that I am working with each week. That shuts them up!

Sooooo, I too am struggling with what to do for exercise now that winter is approaching. My issue is two-fold. The group I exercise with meets on Monday nights, and now DD11 has a basketball game every Monday night until the end of January. DH and I were walking in the mornings...but yeah, NOT in winter. So, I am cheap and have found some workout videos on YouTube that can be played through the Wii at home. Tried that last night...and it kept stalling to buffer. I may head to the thrift store to see if I can find some videos...but I refuse to give up on it! I have GOT to do this!

Exactly! And I have the hardest time at MK... Just because there are so many favorites there... Crystal Palace breakfast and Liberty Tree Tavern lunch are 2 - and well, you can't do them in the same day, so that requires 2 seperate MK days... And now, we have to throw BoG in there too - which leaves dinner on the day we do CP... Which doesn't leave much room for any of our CS meals...
I love most of the restaurants at MK too. Makes it hard to choose which ones we will eat at. I had a hard time deciding between LTT and the Plaza for lunch on our last day, but you tipped the scales for LTT and the Freedom Pasta - which was yummy!

I have started my holiday shopping, but not the wrapping... I probably won't start wrapping until we get our tree up - considering that our wrapping paper is stored in a bin - which just stays in a corner of our livingroom during the holidays, so I don't have to haul it up and down from the basement every time I need to wrap something.
I really need to start wrapping soon. I always leave it to later and then have a ton of stuff to wrap - and it usually takes 2 or 3 days to do it all.

Bummer! Is it worth having the gear replaced?
Yeah, I think so. This will be a workhorse machine and it is just what I needed -- a basic, non-computerized, easy to maintain machine.

Yay for making progress on the quilt! I hope you'll share pictures with us when you are done.
I will post a picture when I'm finished!

I've been using Jiminy every day since we've been home and I really need to change him out - as I am starting to get really sick of him. LOL
I've been using my Jiminy bag every day too, but I'm not tired of him yet.

Finally caught up! (I skimmed a lot)

Your weight loss approach looks great. I love your attitude!

Your trip looks so exciting so far! Have you guys decided on a resort? Did I miss that?

Can't wait to hear the final ADRs!

Love the bags, especially steam boat Mickey!
