Hi Connie, and welcome! It sounds like you have lots of people to sew for! You are fortunate to have most of your family close by (assuming that you want them close, lol).

Yes I am readyfor summer this year we had a new swimming pool put in the backyard wasfinished in March. So far it has been great. The grand kids really love it since it has a waterfall and slide. I love it because it is a great way to cool off. right now I am working on several tee shirts that have different material Mickey heads that I am satin stitching in place. We made button down shirts for the guys from the material and then we gals decided we wanted matching shirts only t-shirts. WE will be goingto Disneyworld for a week in September. That is myhusband, myself, oldest daughter,youngest daughter, her husband and two children. Last year we all wore "Cars " on T-shirts which was also our call names for the walkie's. I was Sally and my husband Lightning McQueen. It is fun and always makes the trip a little more special.:
