Hi Marie! She is so pretty.
I like your little t-shirt design. I want to do that with some of mine, but I will no longer use the sticky solvy with the embroidery machine. I am just about ready to try again. You inspire me.

Happy adulting!!!

Mostly, Marie is pretty grumpy! She is a "my way or the highway" girl!

A while back, I ordered a roll of wash away stabilizer that looks almost like Saran Wrap. It isn't sticky, and can be a bit tricky to align, but it works really nicely to stitch with.

I've seen that stabilizer on some you tube videos. I just got some iron on stabilizer and thought I'd give it a try with my next t-shirt.

I am really hoping to join in with PPV in March. I might start with the blocks for this month and then go back to Jan and Feb in the off weeks. I am kind of tempted to copy your halloween theme, but I think I am going to go with the repro fabrics you sent me on a white background like your original. It's just so crisp and cheery.

Ugh, so sick of things breaking. Every winter I am always surprised and relieved when the furnace actually works, lol. It's the original one from 1940 or so. Apparently Chrysler made some really heavy duty long-lasting furnaces, lol.

It's March! Woo! Seriously, I know you have the wine quilt to do first, but then, PPV. Whatever you do with it, I know it will be lovely.

This is a very short list of all the crap we've had to replace. I didn't mention that my tablet died (the RAM went kaput) or that Big E's laptop had to be replaced earlier in the month. Also, there were the brakes on my car. I mean, REALLY? No list making, it's too depressing...

That is a serious furnace. O_O

Oh geez. Yeah sometimes it just seems like everything breaks at once. I hope that's all done for now for both of us!

Marie kitty! Glad she's better.

Argh, adulting. I've been doing far too much of that myself lately. Playing with an embroidery machine sounds like a good way to recover from it. :)

Even fifteen minutes of crafts a day keeps my brain from breaking. It's been such a YEAR already!!

So glad Marie is feeling better.

Your t shirt design is so cute.

I wonder sometimes if we could just take a holiday from adulting or go on strike.

And THANK YOU for the tissue holder tutorial, as soon as I have finished making the current commissioned pillow, I want to make some.

I would love a holiday from adulting. That would be GREAT!

You're so welcome for the tutorial. The week I shared it originally was right before my dad got sick. It's nice to have it out there for people to enjoy now. :)

I really need to show my PPV blocks again.. I am caught up, though I'm a bit uncertain about my fourth block... I might want to make it over again. The purple fabric in yours is really neat.. I like that it kind of disappears and reappears here and there when the black blends into the black background.

The shirt looks great.. it's a while since you've shown a shirt that you've reworked in some way, so it's nice to see you back at it, even with something as simple as an embroidered embellishment.

I hadn't really realized how long it's been since I've done any kind of clothing recon. The truth is that when I am not feeling the self-esteem, I don't really do anything with clothing. I gained quite a lot of weight after surgery and have struggled quite a bit with that. I'm starting to feel myself again and clothes are (surprise!) becoming interesting again.

I'm glad you're feeling better again! It's a tough thing to combat for sure. (Low self esteem and weight gain, for that matter.)
