In one of those classes I was introduced to the serger. Having never used one before I was amazed by how it neatened up all your work and made it very professional looking. I had to have one. No matter that I didn't actually NEED one and the one that I wanted was well over $1000. I just started telling Dave that I had to have it. It didn't really help that I couldn't really describe what it does..."you know, makes all your sewing better" "How?" "you know, by making it all neat and stuff".
It actually just started to become like when I would ask my parents for a puppy when I was younger. Kind of like second nature, almost absentminded. "So are we going to get my serger today?" "no" " Oh, tomorrow then?". Maybe not daily, but on at least a bi-weekly basis, I would ask about the delivery status of my serger.
Well this year for Christmas: Tah Dah! Someone (Dave) got tired of someone else (me) asking for a serger all the time. Look at the new addition to the squirrel's workshop:
|Don't they look lovely together? Both were purchased from Karyn at the workroom.|
I don't really know how to thread it yet, or do most of the stitches or anything with it, but that's not the point. It's mine. I kind of have the best husband ever. And the lag time on getting what I want is only about two years or so....so by 2013, I should be getting that diamond tiara I've started asking for.
I'm taking a t-shirt making class at the workroom in May, so that serger will be seeing some t-shirt making action then.
In other news, I got all the supplies for my next knitting project in the mail today:
I know. Dave says that being married to me is like being married to a 60 year old.
I'm pretty sure he means that in a good way.
