Last week my serger chomped a scrap of fabric, broke a needle, and then jammed up. After the jam was cleared up, the poor serger clunkety-clunked, and nothing I could do remedied the situation. T'was a sad day for me because I was in the middle of sewing myself a T-shirt.
After a week at the repair spa, my serger is now as good as new. :)
Well, instead of sewing this week, I made plans to sew. Little Emily is growing to be not-so-little, and she needs some bigger clothes. What's a mother to do? ---buy fabric! Some of this fabric came from my shelves, but I found the blue corduroy on sale at Hancocks today. Knowing how Emmy's eyes sparkle when she wears blue I just couldn't resist buying just enough to make her a jumper.
I can't wait to get started. This evening I traced my patterns, prewashed the fabric, and made some plans. I don't usually draw things out, but you know, it was rather fun. I may continue the practice....
Unfortunately, I probably won't get to my sewing machine until Tuesday, but that's how life is sometimes. Good things have to wait.
Yes, I'm rambling. :) Time to end.
