All items are wonderful.
What part of Colorado are you going to be going to?
Very cute outfits! Glad you had fun. We are going tomorrow, don't think I'll get the shirts done in time, brother came in early and took my sewing time, oh well.
We are driving (sigh) from Chicago to Colorado Springs. I grew up there and my mom, brother and nephew all live there. My 6-yo nephew gets to throw out the first pitch at the CS Sky Sox minor league game on the 4th.

Jen, everyone looks awesome in their outfits for the movie. I think I will try to get the kids there in a few weeks when we visit my parents.
We are currently in Orlando with my DHs work. No Disney for us, but if it rains maybe I will take the kids to DTD to see Monsters Inc.
The hotel we stayed at last night was was next to sea world and Shamu was at breakfast this morning. I told my kids "if I knew Shamu was going to be here I would have made you matching outfits." They both rolled their eyes and moaned. My DD told me I was going a little overboard. LOL. I am debating about what to make them for our Oct trip. Curtis will only wear tshirts. I am afraid to ask Casey if she will wear some skirts because I am afraid she will say no. She is a sweetie and will probably wear whatever I make, once it is made.
Missed a few quotes but I love hearing from those that are new or haven't been around lately. Yeah for more trips.
Thankfully my kids still wear what I tell them to most of the time. They do have their preferences though, for sure! I can tell I go overboard though since when we took them to the high school production of Beauty and the Beast one demanded to wear his BEAST SHIRT! for the show, which I had not made... No activity un-outfitted I guess.
Welcome home! How did your family do with the fire?
How exciting about your nephew! What a neat thing for him to get to do!
I hope your drive goes well. I will shout a "hello" to you from Littleton!
My family was fine this time around. Last year my mom was evacuated, she lives in the foothills northwest CS, her house was fine but the church 50 yards outside her backdoor had a spot fire and suffered damage. My brother lives about a mile south of the evac area for this most recent fire. It's heartbreaking to see so much devastation in my hometown. I do miss the mountains and my husband, even though he is from Chicago, occasionally discusses moving back there. His family no longer lives here, they retired elsewhere, and it would be nice for my kids to grow up near their cousin. Looking forward to being in Colorado, not as much looking forward to the drive out and back! Our road trip to florida a few months ago to visit my husband's Dad was terrible, my kids were awful and I think we stopped 200 times to potty. Sigh.
I have been stalking the thread but haven't done much sewing lately, so I wanted to share the 2 things I FINALLY got done for the MU movie this weekend.
hope this works because it has been a long time since I posted any pics
hmmmm. why don't my pictures show instead of the link to them on facebook?
A few of us will be there at around the same time - Nini, Lisa, and a couple others (their names escape me at the moment).
Very cute! I am glad that you made your husband the shirt so he fit in with the rest of the gang. Did your boys do ok at the movie?
Our house continues to be dry, but my brother-in-law ended up with 6 feet of water in the basement. DH was over there the last couple of days getting water out and ripping out damaged dry wall and insulation. Some of the pictures taken around the city were incredible, including a light rail track that looks like a roller coaster track due to the flood! I am truly thankful that my family is safe, dry, and have food and clothes!
The filename needs to end in .jpg or some other picture format. I also can't see them through the links.
You need to have them posted as images. <img> and at the end </img>

You all look super cute Jen! Great job on the outfits!
Sorry - I tried to get them to work - but I could not.
Oh wow! Just found this thread- I've spent the last 2 hours reading haha! I will have to figure out how to post pics and share some of what I have made my little girl for our upcoming trip
Welcome. We love pictures!!
And...true to my multiple promises....I Have a project picture.
Quick Tutu while I watched a movie with big explosions. It's not the best picture, given that I do not have a model.
Welcome! Please share pictures of your projects! Instructions to post pictures can be found on page 1.
The tutu looks cute! It screams 4th of July to me. Great job!
Way back forever ago, I posted my woes with my newish embroidery machine... finally have some resolution today.
(Quick recap: it's been broken now a MONTH. I have had it in 3 times. It is a 3-hour round trip. Also, they were mean to me. )
Met today with the owner of the store, who had called me after getting the Better Business Bureau inquiry. She was in Italy. So couldn't do anything for 2 more weeks while she enjoyed her vacation. (not clear why no one in the store could help me, but whatever.) So I met with her today and flat out said I was NOT interested in hearing all the reasons I was the problem... The tech took it back and found 2 more burrs on the throat plate that he did not find the previous 3 times... And I sat w/ them and tested it. FINALLY got through an entire project. They still think my thread (all threadart, and all works totally fine with my PE770 for the FIFTY shirts I did this month with the little machine.) and my bobbins and my stabilizer. I literally just ordered medium-weight cut-away, which is what I prefer for t-shirts, 200 yards of it thru thread art, but haven't even opened it until today since my machine was down... they were $40/100 yards. The stabilizer they insisted I need to buy was $275/100 yards. GASP!
Anyway, I was finally able to use, successfully, and with my own stabilizer and threads, my machine for the first time in a month and finished 4 shirts for orders. I am in a crunch to get all my orders done before we leave for Colorado on Sunday. And I stupidly agreed to make a full-sized quilt top before I go, which has 24 appliques that take 20-30 minutes each. Because I am clearly dumb.
So that's the skinny. They finally fixed it right and so far so good. But I still feel like it should not take a month, 8 trips, a letter to the owner, BBB and Brother Corp to get that sort of resolution.
Maybe when we get back I can start making stuff for my kids for our trip, since time is flying!
glad you finally got some resolution with your machine and I am sorry it took so long. I will tell you that my brother machines do not like all the same thread. One will use thread art thread but the other will not. Also there are certain colors that my machine hates. Same thing with my Janome machine. I am so happy that your machine is fixed.
Thanks. It has been incredibly harrowing month dealing with this, falling behind on everything and taking it all out of my family. (though my kids LOVE their Monsters University outfits and have already worn them 3 times so I guess I have redeemed myself.)
It looks like I will be needing to buy new thread. I have 100 or so spools I think of mostly thread art. I have a handful of marathon and they gave me 4 spools of isacord (I think it.) in the main 4 colors I need to get my projects done this week. I bought the marathon at the expo, so I only have a handful of colors, and can't spend $6/spool to buy all new thread. Any advice on where I can get a starter pack like threadart offers w/ 20-30 different colors to get going? Also, pre-wound Brother brand bobbins? I loathe winding bobbins. I never seem to have them ready when I need them and it just annoys me.
