My husband is working late today so he and the girls gave me my lovely birthday gift yesterday - this is it:
I'm sure those of you that sew know exactly what it is, but for those of you that don't its a Bernina 1300mtc Serger/Overlocker!!!!!
I've been wanting a serger for a long time but never had one, and now that I have one I'm TERRIFIED of it!! The last serger I used was in middle school and was like a $200 special that only serged and didn't have any bells and whistles on it whereas this new serger does a ton of stuff and I'm scared to even try to thread it let alone use it! That being said I've got a date with my new toy this afternoon and I'm hoping between the manual, Youtube and my mad skills I'll be able to figure it out without hurting it or myself... ;)
Its soooo lovely - I have the best husband ever!! Can't wait to use it!
Yesterday we also organized the unfinished basement a little better and now I have a sewing room for all my sewing goodness. I took before and after pictures and I'll post them tomorrow (hopefully along with something serged to prove that I conquered the threading today at least!!). Its going to be so wonderful to have a space somewhere with all my sewing stuff together. Its still a work in progress but its a fantastic start to a wonderful Mommy cave!!
Today is also International Talk Like a Pirate Day - Happy Arrrrrrrrrh to you all!!! ;)
