Well, I better get to work on my Regency dress. I forgot to post about how terrible it was going and how I bought new fabric for it… that’ll come later, I guess. 🙂
My new Brother 1034D 3/4 Lay-In Thread Serger arrived this week! Isn’t he great?
I don’t usually name objects, but I had a reason for naming this one. It all started with an amusing Facebook conversation.
Me (status): “Mommy and I ordered my Brother 1043D 3/4 Lay-In Thread Serger (in short, my serger) today!! 😀 😀 😀 YAY!!”
DS: “Confused for about 20 seconds as I thought you were saying you ordered a brother! I didn’t think it could be that easy. Anyways, congratulations on your new arrival. 🙂 “
SJ: “I was filled with the same confusion as D.S. and about to write Frances a congrats note… then kept reading. Whoo. That was close.”
AW: ” 😀 I thought you were saying that you ordered your brother a Serger…hmmm. 😉 “
I finally said I should have ordered a Babylock instead. 😉
Anyway, all the joke about a “Brother” gave me the idea to name it. So I named it Fred. I have sewed a little with the thread that came with it; I haven’t tried threading it yet though. Hopefully I’ll do that on Monday. Anyway, I’m very happy with it. 🙂
Let’s see…. what have I gotten done since I posted last?
Well, I didn’t get to sew as much as I had meant to this week. I did buy the sheer fabric for the sleeves on my Regency dress, and have made one of the sleeves so far– I really like it with the sheer overlay. I cut out the bodice for Margaret’s bodiced petticoat today but didn’t get around to sewing it yet. (I’ve been so ridiculously busy! I really can’t afford to go places because I have so much to do at home… and yet I do go places and get little done at home. 😛 ) I finished another part of one of the Christmas orders:
These are for a little girl at church, and there will be matching ones for her doll too (haven’t made them yet). Her mom wanted me to add ruffles at the hem, something which I was at first very wary about. Ruffles? I thought it would look weird. However, once I finished them, I was very pleased with how they turned out. The fabric was so cute too. It’s always very encouraging when a sewing project turns out better than you expected. 😉
What else did I do? Oh, I worked out the dress to match this one. Um….. I believe that’s all.
Life is so busy! Busy busy busy. I’m looking forward to after Christmas, when things should slow down a little. 🙂
Have a wonderful Lord’s Day tomorrow, friends!
Hey! Just thought I’d let you know that there are two new listings on our Etsy shop.
Here is one: a picture I took in June and then edited just recently.
And a crocheted hat and scarf set for dolls, preparing for winter! 🙂
Hope you all have a great evening! ~Margaret
