    I got the pirate map fabric thru fat quarter shop, but I also saw it at fabric.com. There are 3 different color schemes even, it's part of a quilting line with other pirate fabrics. I bought a yard of it because I figured I could use it for a pirate hideout fort I've been "working on" for more than a year. Which means I made one of 4 sides from felt and put it away in a bin since then. Maybe that should be the next unfinished project I tackle.

    I am not sure whether or not to thank you. Let me rephrase. I thank you! My wallet does not. :lmao: When we switch over Squirt's room (he's two) to a toddler bed, we already own Cars themed items, but I am dying for him to have a pirate room. We've got a Jake poster, maybe I can sneak in a pirate quilt! :thumbsup2

    Anyway, our family is big into pirates, so I'll have to check this out.

    We are doing pirates for my boys' big boy room. I bought fabric for twin quilts more than a year ago. Of course I haven't even started cutting.

    I haven't shared in a while since I haven't been sewing but now that the bus strike is over I have more time. This is what I did this week, the PJs are for Miss C and the rest was for an order and are on their way to Disney right now.

    Cogero, CUTE pjs!!!! Love them!

    HA! That's like my super good deal I got on flannel at Joann's, all Christmas-y themed, that I said, oh, I'll make my first rag quilt.

    I've washed the fabric.

    Yup. :lmao:

    I love everything! That skirt material for the Duffy outfit is beautiful! You did an amazing job. Quickly too.::yes::

    Thanks for the fabric tips. I've been spending a lot of time checking them all out. Good thing to do on a cold day!:thumbsup2 Also, glad to hear the buses are running again. Life can get back to just being semi-crazy for you. Hope you get to feeling stronger and better.

    Wow...I can not believe how long it has been since I have been on here! (hanging my head in shame!)

    So many new names (as well as some not so new names!) Andrea...so glad about your house! Cheryl, your son should have come to GA for the movie shoot in my back yard... while it was more annoying than exciting (especially after we found out the stars were not going to be here) it was a bit of fun!

    I promise to not stay away so long this time!

    Wow, it's been forever since I posted here but I have been reading along. Love all the dresses, quilts are fantastic, and the towel robes and backpack and everything else too! I know Flora, you asked about my new job, I am loving it, it really fits me and my coworkers are great and I love working with them. I haven't been doing too much sewing but this week I plan on working on some stuff for the give. On a side note I needed needles for my machine. I have a Kenmore so I usually run into Sears to get my needles. I went in the other day and lo and behold they don't have Kenmore sewing stuff any more. The needles are Singer needles and they didn't even have Kenmore machines. I was curious and went online and they don't have anything there either so it looks like they have stopped making the machines and all the accessories too.

    I have been working on teaching myself crochet. I have lots of downtime at work so I've been getting lots of practice. Here is my first hat and scarf I made. Just ignore the horrible self mirror picture, I had just come inside from shoveling snow.. I am working on another hat and scarf set and might make matching mittens for both sets too. I also started working on an afghan for my cousin's wedding gift this summer. I had originailly wanted to do a quilt but wasn't sure I would have the time so why not crochet while I'm working:)

    Dumb question, do you think this bathing suit cover-up is acceptable (allowed) at the pool at the resorts only?? (I know NOT the theme parks or water parks). I made it from a line of fabric that we have at our store.

    Thanks for the update about using canned air. I am sorry to hear that you have been under the weather, but it sounds like you and your DH are on the mend. Beauty sounds like a great name for your machine! I can't see pictures of it! I agree about not wanting it any other way in terms of where my spare money goes :)


    I am glad that the bus strike is over and you are feeling better.

    I am glad that your knee has more or less healed up. It sounds like you had a pretty good recovery. I have been very good this year in terms of sewing from my stash, though I bought some fabric the other day (it was 50% off). That was the first piece of fabric I bought in months!

    The PJ set looks nice and comfy. I like the Duffy set too!

    I am glad to hear that you are enjoying your new job and that you are working with nice people. I didn't realize they stopped making Kenmore machines and the accessories. I hope you were able to find needles for your machine. The crocheted hat and scarf set looks great! I am sure they keep you nice and warm! I can't wait to see pictures of your other projects!

    Nini - I lost your quote but it is nice to see you again! I hope things are going well with your family.

    Those pajamas are very cute and look really comfy. The t-shirts are cute too and the Duffy outfit is very pretty.


    Very nice hat and scarf, you're doing a great job crocheting.

    Love the quilts, Pj's are so cute and so are the shirts. great job on crocheting, I need to get my Mom doing that.

    Why wouldn't it be ? You can wear what you want in the water or out of it. As long as you are not naked underneath then it's got you covered ... teehee ! :p:blush:

    Hello, thought I would drop by and post the latest. I haven't posted in awhile, but have really been enjoying all the beautiful stuff that has been posted. We had a week off work this week and I have made a couple of easy strip quilts for some friends who just had babies. The only thing disney about the first one is the applique font, but I thought it was cute and would share anyway...

    [​IMG]

    this isn't disney either, but the older brother who is not yet 2 enjoyed his baby sisters so much, I had to make him his own, so here is his...

    Back to work tomorrow :sad: but, I will try harder to stay up with this thread.

    I have the Rose too, I've never used the embroidery unit, because I've never had a card reader I could use.

    I'm so excited for you!!! I hope the inspection goes well!

    Hi everyone,

    I posted a while back about my quest for matching bowling shirts and pillowcase dresses for my kids. You all provided some honest and helpful feedback, which I appreciated very much :)

    After quietly stalking this thread for a while, I just wanted to say I love the beautiful things you all put together. I'm really inspired. I'm going to attempt to make some matching fleece hats for us for our trip. My MIL has an old sewing machine she says I can practice on. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

    Also, I wanted to share a coupon I got for Fabric.com. It is 15% off sitewide with NO minimum purchase. The code is THX113 and if you order more than $35 worth you get free shipping. Just wanted to share. I ordered some fabric and fleece and got a bunch of stuff for my $35 and got the discount!

    Woot Woot!!

    Also, in other news, I found my old planning binder and lo and behold, found an antique looking reciept from early 2011 from the lady who did my outfits last time. I decided to send her an email to see if she was still around and SHE IS! She is doing the two pillow case dresses and one bowling shirts for me. She actually already had the fabric I wanted. SCORE. All three pieces were $65 with the shipping. I'm SOOOOOOOO happy!

    The outfits she made last time still look amazing and they were worn dozens of times! I'm hoping for another excellent transaction.

    Anywho, happy sewing to everyone. Hope the coupon is helpful.

    Thanks again for all the inspiration!

    Ooo that all sounds fantastic finding the old receipt!! Yeah! Happy dance. I worked with my mom making a bowling shirt for my son last year and they are so darn cute! So many options with them (considering there was nothing really out there for boys like there are for the girls!). Can't wait to see em!

    Yup, knee is healing up nicely. Slow and steady wins the race.

    Currently washing and drying the fabric for the big give, and hoping to get that all sewn up (ha ha ha) this week. :thumbsup2

    Anyone have an iron recommendation? Mine stopped heating up yesterday. Looked a little on Amazon but the reviews are so contradictory with the same models described as both wonderful and junk that I am completely confused now!

    The only feature that I am really interested in is the ability to turn off/override the auto-shutoff so the iron heats continuously. I'd like a bit more expensive as this is the second cheap iron from Target that I've worn out. Thanks!
