Things have been quiet here lately but I closed 2011 doing some of my favourite things. I had the opportunity to travel, celebrate holidays with family, try new recipes in the kitchen and finish a few sewing and knitting projects. Although I have been remiss in writing, I had to share one of my Christmas presents from my husband.

New serger

Voila! It was a complete surprise, too. He picked out this particular model based on reviews online, and so far so good.

Reading material

He also rather wisely gave me some reading material to go along with it! After perusing the book, the serger manual and other blogs, it seemed like threading the machine would likely be my biggest challenge. I was prepared! It must have been beginner's luck but I managed fairly easily. I tied on the new thread to the spool the machine came threaded with and just pulled it through. It worked for one out of three spools. For the rest, I just followed the manual. I've already started a project from the book and will write more about it soon.

Happy 2012!


  1. I started reading your blog after seeing your clothing on flickr. Can't wait to see more! I'd love a serger... I am currently afraid of knits!

  2. Whoo hoo! New blog post! I am looking forward to seeing the things you serge.

    Happy new year!
