Not everyone's cup of tea, I'm sure, but they absolutely scream "crazy old hippie chick". They work pretty well with my $10 garage sale print titled "Iris Pool" but I'm gonna need some purple towels. Love, love, love it.
No sooner had I got home from Midland, hung the curtains and settled back in front of the computer, when an email came through accepting my offer on a sewing machine. The catch was I had to come get it NOW. So off I went to the Gem Heights area of South Hill, Puyallup. I arrived home with a new patient for my sewing machine clinic. I'm getting a bit too tired to begin a sewing project so I'll just have to show you all the goodies I got, yesterday, at the JoAnn Fabric's Columbus Day Sale. They had all their Simplicity patterns priced at 99 cents each (limit 10). Guess how many I bought!???!
I also have way too many sewing machines. You know what I don't have too many of? Sergers. I have a nice one that my friend, Marti gave me, but it is without a manual and I am too intimidated to try and figure it out. I also determined that sergers (at least the less expensive entry level models) aren't worth trying to find used. The sellers want almost as much for a 20 year old serger as it will cost you for a brand new one. Which is why I ordered a Brother 1034D on Amazon, today, along with a The Complete Serger Handbook. The serger will arrive with it's own manual plus a CD rom video. Happy Anniversary to me! I always know the perfect gift to get myself. ;-p
Speaking of gifts, look what my thoughtful better half gave me. It is the work of a New York photographer. Love it! That's all the show and tell for today. I hope to have some actual sewing to show soon.
