Meet Sergio. We are busy getting acquainted at the moment. Actually, I've only admired him from the other side of the room so far. We are still at the stage of exchanging furtive glances. I haven't actually had the nerve to talk to him yet.... Those threading instructions are insane.
I honestly had no hope that I would own a serger in the near future. With baby coming along soon, I was pretty sure it would be months and months before I had saved up enough. But my wonderful husband decided I was worth it. Must have something to do with carrying around this child for past eight months ;) I may actually attempt to cook dinner tonight in appreciation rather than flopping on the couch and complaining about my giant belly. I had a birthday last week, too. Whatever the reason, thank you J. You are the awesomest. Love you.
What's the perfect project to get to know your serger, folks? Maybe a simple skirt? I've been longing for a maternity maxi skirt. That may be just the ticket. A couple of rectangles. And how on earth do you decide if the tension is set correctly when you use a serger? I swear all those little troubleshooting diagrams looked the same to me. Any good serging tips or links?
