    Thank you!

    You are all tempting me to try sewing with my left foot. :lmao: I need to get my right knee in better shape first though.

    I'll try to get pictures up soon. :goodvibes




    Excellent! I just am thinking to myself, I buy shorts like this! I have made a fair share of things with my sewing machine, but every now and then, I have a d'oh! moment like this when I think, I could make those!!!

    And to think of all the old tees of my husbands we gave away recently.

    I'll have to peruse and see if we've got an old shirt I can try this on.

    Thank you, I found it. I couldn't get in heathersues site yesterday. I think it was your shirt that I had in mind.

    I think it's been so quiet since most people have migrated from here to FB. And yes Flora, I think you and I may be the only ones who don't FB! I think Diane is the only one who FB's and still sticks around here regularly. I miss seeing all the others great stuff and keeping up with them, but I can certainly understand not wanting to post in both places. I guess FB is easier for most :confused3

    I've been quiet b/c I haven't been sewing. I started jeans for dd, but didn't get them done yet since ds was sick and home from school. His being sick was not the problem, rather we have a sibling policy at our school where if one child has a fever the sibling must stay home (very good policy IMO b/c often you can be a carrier without symptoms for 24 hours). So dd thinks I'm her best friend now and we have played lots of Wii Go Vacation for the past couple of days which cuts into my free time.

    Kids are back to school today but I'm catching up on what I got behind on. DD's jeans won't get finished until the weekend :(

    I am still here reading daily, but not much time to post as I have been having Gallbladder issues and dealing with my girls and doc appointments for them and myself and PTA and cheer has started back up. I have not sewn anything in a while other than some casserole carriers for Christmas gifts. I will be starting some things soon as we have a surprise trip planned for May.

    What is the Facebook page ? I read here daily but it has slowed down so much and I feel weird with multiple posts all being on one page. Where did everyone go ??

    :wave2: I am still here. Just haven't had time to get onto DISboards much. I finished my one outfit for our MainStreet Launch that is coming up and I really need to start making things for our trip that is only 78 days away :scared:


    Diane & Dorine..... love everything you posted


    Welcome. I see you are at 10 posts so that means we need pictures

    Great job on the shirts and I love the little MKe

    I missed that you were going over the Tokyo DL, but glad that you had a fun time.

    Such a pretty outfit. I saw you posted on Funktional Threads with your Wizard of Oz dress.

    Love the dresses you are making.... but how could you refuse those awesome chairs.


    Love the Cinderella dress e


    Welcome

    Adorable

    :darth: You need to come to the Darkside ie FB:rotfl2:

    Welcome.... but be forewarned it is quite an expensive addiction to start sewing and embroidering/appliquing. You will feel the need to buy and hoard all fabric and purchase every design digitized just because :upsidedow

    :sad2:

    pixiedust:Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    My sewing machine has a push button start/stop but it scares me. If I'm guiding the fabric with my hands how do I push the button to stop it. I think I would be better off putting the presser foot on the table and doing that with my hand.

    I'm not on FB.

    I have been insanely busy/stressed at work since they started a new "initiative" 2 years ago and fired a bunch of people that no longer "fit". As the sole wage earner I can't loose my job and after having been here 20+ years don't really want to find a new one nor think I can. So I don't have time to post comments on everything and it sort of feels like an all or nothing thing.

    I also haven't been sewing much. I did make a rag quilt and tissue holders for Christmas that I could post (not Disney).

    I'm still around. I mostly do my catching up on my phone so it's more difficult to multi quote. Plus this new schedule is really kicking my butt. I'm on fb but don't know where the fb group is so I too am exclusive to here. I haven't been sewing much since Christmas but I have been teaching myself to crochet. Not only do I get an hour break but it is rather slow working at night so there is alot of downtime. The room where I work is fairly dark so I can only read so much without starting to get sleepy. So far I have made a hat and am working on a scarf now. I think after the scarf I will make an afghan for my cousin for her wedding, can't beat getting paid to make a wedding gift. I will try to post pics tomorrow of my hat and if i finish the scarf I will post that too.

    Sorry I already broke the rules! I really was just trying to share the pic! Here is a shirt I made for my son for our upcoming Valentine's Day trip.
    Hope this works & I don't get another infraction!

    Sorry it's huge! No idea how to resize on photobucket mobile.

    How did you break the rules ?

    The shirt looks really cute. Can't believe it's almost valentine's already. Before you know it, it will be June !!! :eek::eek:

    I got all 3 dresses done for the contest. Here is the last one and all 3 together. You can almost see her face in the last twirly one. She didn't like standing still for pictures, hence the miserable look in the pics. LOL, guess that happens with a 3 yr old model. twirling is more fun !

    Now, to decide what contest I want to do next and pick a pattern and fabric for it. then to wait for the contest to start. I think I'll do the RTW rip-off contest thing. I want to make this dress I think....

    yes, I am ambitious to try to rip off a Valentino when I haven't even been sewing a year. :rolleyes1;)

    Those are CUTE! Great job. I posted a link but I didn't realize it was against the rules. Oh well.

    Thank you! I wish I could pixie dust my recovery like that. :lmao: I've been doing my physical therapy exercises and they help a lot. Already I feel so much better just having an action plan.

    I'd love to see your rag quilt and tissue holders, even if not Disney. :goodvibes

    Adorable shirt!!!

    The pout on her face is absolutely priceless. Twirling is infinitely more fun than standing still! Much like my two year old will run instead of walking. Or skip along. :lmao:

    The dresses are beautiful!

    Thanks! Mostly my design, I saw something similar on a step stool once.

    They turned out great! I love the 3rd one you posted after this quote. Good luck in the contest. I think it's great that you are challenging yourself and setting the bar high. You have made so much progress in just under a year! I think attempting a Valintino is a perfect challenge for you! Go for it!

    Great job on both items!!

    Wow! You have been busy. You get more done in a few weeks than I get done in a few months! Everything is wonderful as usual too! You hit the half off sale even missing the half off day?? I guess you were meant to have that sale. Good for you.

    I have a push button start/stop on my sewing machine and I've gone exclusively to using it. Once you get used to it, it works like a charm. There has been the odd time or two that I've accidentally hit the on when reaching for something, but not that often.

    I love that shirt! If I could get my DGS to wear anything I make, I would love to make something similar. But he's 3 and not willing to wear anything I make so far. Nice job! Don't worry about the infraction. I don't understand all the rules either. I've never had an infraction, but it's probably been just luck that I haven't. :rotfl: Thanks for sharing (and not giving up!:goodvibes)

    Glad I could help!

    Sorry that you've had the kids home all week. Mine feel like they've been home all week. They had Monday and Tuesday off from school. Then Thursday there was a delayed opening because of snow and then today there was an early dismissal because of the snow! They had 1 full day of school this week. I wish we'd had the money to go away this week. They would have missed practically no school!

    I've never heard of a sibling policy like that one. It would be horrible for some larger families where one of the kids always has a cold or something.

    Sorry that you haven't been feeling well. How fun that you are planning a surprise trip!!!

    Adorable shirt! I love that design. Don't worry about breaking the rules. Most of us have had our hands slapped at least once because figuring out all the rules can be complicated.

    Love the dresses and the model. Especially the expression! Definitely made me laugh. I hope you do really well in the contest. The dress that you plan to case for your next contest is lovely. I can't wait to see your version.

    Very cute and a clever Valentine-but-can-wear-anytime shirt. Who doesn't love McQueen?

    THe dresses look great. And getting a 3-year-old to model is no small feat, believe me, I have two of them. I have been doing tons of samples for my etsy shop and "borrowing" my friends kids, most of whom are in the 2-3 age range. My friend is a portrait photographer so she is doing sessions with them for free for me. I get sample photos, she gets to build a portfolio, and the parents get free shirts. But it is exhausting! I did my own mini photoshoot with my own kids with some Mickey shirts I made them. They were thrilled I got their Mickey Ear hats down from the high shelf (out of their destructive reach.) and they got to wear them.

    But my favorite, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE despite it not showing their shirts at all:
    [​IMG]

    And a Question for any of you PE770 Owners: I got mine last summer, around July-August. I love it. While I am hoping to upgrade to something with a bigger hoop sometime it is meeting my needs for now. But I have a recent/weird issue that I am not sure what to do. It used to alert me and stop stitching when the bobbin ran out, actually right BEFORE the bobbin ran out, generally with a few inches left. Now for the past couple weeks it happily keeps stitching for a LONG TIME, often finishing a step, satin stitching a couple of inches with no bobbin thread. I feel like I have to constantly watch it. Any thoughts? We do have a nearby Brother dealer, but as I mentioned here before it is run by a crotchety old dude who is way down on the PE770 and did a lot less helping and a lot more trying to upsell/belittling my choice in machine so I don't want to take it there unless I need to. For the record I am using the same bobbin thread I have always used: thread art, and wind my own bobbins. I did order pre-wound just because I am sick of winding them since I can't seem to remember to do it until they are needed. Figured I would try them. They aren't here yet to test.
    Thanks in advance,
    Jen

    Sorry you got in trouble... I didn't see your original post, so I have no idea what it was about. I am sure it was an honest mistake. :flower3:

    Love your applique - it's beautful!

    I love them all! You did such a great job!
