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!! :D :D :D 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: " :D 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. :-P ) I finished another part of one of the Christmas orders:
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.
