Hi Warna, thanks for the warm welcome. I'm a grandmother too and love it. It's easy to sew for the kids as usually there are no major alterations. At least, not yet.

Have you found a pattern yet for booties? How about the quilt idea you had. It was a great idea. It would be nice to see it...if you can post it.

Thank you! I love photography...not very good at it, but I try! I think you'd like Ravelry. My sister in law is on there too and she does the same as you with the knitting groups but says she wont go anymore because she misses my brother because she's away from him and because it's more chatting than stitching. On ravelry her name is bettagirl and mine is BirdieG if you want to look for us! The only group I've joined there is the guinea pig lovers group.
See you 'round!

Actually he is a mix of malteze and silky terrier. He weighs about 12 lbs.

I bought a serger about a year ago and in their instruction manual it said to avoid black thread if possible. I thought that was odd since I sew a lot in black thread. They recommended using a very dark navy blue instead. I of course disregarded their advice and have had no problem with black thread in either of my sergers. Maybe with some kinds of machine this IS a problem. Hope this helps - if not I hope you know there are people out there who sympathsize with you anguish. I too have fought with machines until I just threw the project down and went and bought a new machine. Laurie

Warna, thanks for your compliments on my embroidery. I will check about the doll design when I can get back onto my desktop and get back to you.

Picking thr pattern can be the toughest part of the whole process. A two-block quilt might be nice. Use all of her clothing fabrics in the pieced block, pick your favorite pattern, and then use a plain block to do your embroidery on. I have seen some red-work quilts done like this. Good luck. I am sure that no matter what you do it will be great!

Congrdulstions! (on your new addition.) I have found some finished Mary Jane shoes on Esty that I could purchase, but no pattern. I am still looking.

Hi Warna:
Thanks for asking.
I just cut the legs off and use the shape/size of the jeans to determine the shape. I play around with the bottom of the bag by leaving it straight or rounding it slightly. I've been using fabric from my stash for linings and usually use the seams from the legs for straps. I also purchase magnetic closures to use in place of zippers, because zippers are difficult to sew in.

HI Warna,
Congratulations on your new Diamond! I'm sure you will love it. The Diamond I bought was one of the first ones available in this area. I'm sure by now some of the bugs have been worked out of the newer machines. It's a great machine just a little picky about threading. When I first started machine embroidery it was on the Viking Designer 1. I had a ball with it. I collected a lot of free designs from the internet (and still do). To begin I would just practice, practice, practice, before tackling a project. My first project was a pillow for my husband. I used several of the free designs collected and since I am a quilter, I pieced them all together. I was so pleased with myself! lol. Enjoy the journey with your new machine.

I got into dollmaking about five years ago, but everytime I'd get going on a project I'd have to go to work. I was a court reporter and got called out on jobs as a routine, even though I shouted to everyone that I'd retired! Never did finish that doll.

I like to use the self adhesive stabilizer. It's very easy to center things in the hoop. Especially a shirt cuff. :)
