My most amazing, most thoughtful, most aware of my Amazon WishList husband ;) got me a serger for Christmas! !!! !! ! ! !!!! !
She's a beaut. It's probably the serger that most beginning sewist have... It's affordable and the reviews can't be denied.
And tonight, I threaded it! For those unfamiliar with sergers, the threading process is like brain surgery. Like Home Ec brain surgery.
But I did it!
|Yay! Pink cones!|
|Happy little chain!|
[side note... I also got an amazing new camera for Christmas from my always-too-generous In-Laws. It's bananas. I am still learning the ins and outs of it, but I am SO grateful to be able to shoot pics at will - and not have that 'why bother' feeling because my camera is sucko. Not the case anymore. Thank you guys infinitely.]
So, now that I have about a 3% grasp of what this thing can do (my usual jumping off point), I have chosen this as my first serger endeavor:
|M6194 and cute cute cute floral double knit.|
I'm trying the long sleeved tee shirt there, in that so-cute floral knit (which, coincidentally, I have enough of to perhaps make a similar [read: the exact same] shirt for me ;)
I have played around with the serger on scraps, both knits and wovens, and whoaa boy - it's awesome. I'm so excited to really dive in and make some goodies.
More to come! Including shots of Emmy in pigtails - her hair is growing like weeds! Sweet, sweet baby weeds!
Love to all :)
