Bad, Sad news... and a White Christmas

I broke my Mom's embroidery machine yesterday night..... sigh..... frown.

I don't know what happened... nothing funky. It just kept telling me that the safety device was activated. I tried everything I could think of to fix it myself... it just wasn't happening.

So... no more embroidering for the rest of the time I'm here. I'm seriously sad about that, because I LOVE to use my Mom's 6X10 embroidery field. I really wanted to make one of these for Lucy and put this on a sweatshirt hoodie for Jacob and put this on a pillow for me for Valentines and I've never EVER made one of these either. ....sigh..... oh well.

At least I was able to complete the pajama shirts for my sister in law and niece, make a stuffed owl in the hoop for Megan's shower, and make some matching shirts for some clearance pants for the girls.

It will help me get in gear to make Ella's flower girl dress, too, for a wedding on Friday night. I have the fabric, notions, and trims but haven't traced the pattern or cut it out.... still need that kick in the pants... I guess.

Until then... we are going to the movies this morning- my sister in law, me, my girls, and my two adorable nieces- I'm sooooo excited!!!!!


I wish I would have finished the adorable frog princess dress I have planned. Oh well.

Here are some photos of our white Christmas in central Texas. Enjoy Nannie- I hope you are feeling better.








My birthday is in 3 days!!!! Woooooo Hoooooooo!
I love my birthday!

[color=#ea5a94]I am the kind of hombre who passions to seek revolutionary stuff. Currently I'm building my hold photovoltaic panels. I am doing it all by myself without the help of my staff. I'm utilizing the internet as the only way to acheive that. I discovered a really brilliant site that explains how to make solar panels and so on. The site explains all the steps needed for constructing photovoltaic panels.

I am not really sure about how precise the data given there is. If some people over here who have experience with these works can have a look and give your feedback in the site it will be awesome and I would really appreciate it, cauze I truly love [url=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/url].

Tnx for reading this. You guys rock.[/color]

My embroidery machine did that too last night. All I had to do was rethread the upper thread. But, I also had to sit there & advance it till I got back to that spot.....:)

That has happened to me a ton of times! My book that came with the machine says to rethread the upper thread. That is what it has been almost every time. I take it out completely and the bobbin and redo them both. Want to hear some other sad sad news? I am SO upset! Our computer crashed and I lost ALL of my embroidery files. I had bought so many. I found the lynnie pinnie ones in my email, but the swakembroidery ones nope. and i never created an account with them. how dumb am i? UGH. anyway, hope u are having fun!!!
