                           There hasn't been much sewing going on around this house lately  (poor me).

                            That hasn't stopped me from purchasing stuff.....  this is our secret!!

                              I love the wonder clips, the small ones, so I ordered 100 of them.




Then I purchased the three light threads off Amazon and then the gray is from Hancock's of Pudcah.

I love the Aurifil threads and you see that one by the white, that is my all time favorite thread....EVER!!

I am doing another quilt for Fall Market and Island Batik Catalog and so went searching for threads to do some blanket stitching with and yep....I am going to use my FAVORITE COLOR!!

Could n't pass up the gray.

I am weak, what can I say???



Please don't look at the mess on the table (now saying that you are going to look)....oh well...no excuse except I just don't have the room in this sewing room.

A friend asked me to look at this Hobbylock serger.  She said a friend gave it to her.  The thread on it was so rotten that it just fell apart.  There was dust a mile deep (ok, I am exaggerating but you get the picture)
I got it last night and cleaned it up, I still need to oil it.  I was for certain that the cutter wouldn't work since it hasn't been used in forever but low and behold it does.  

After I cleaned it up, threaded it...you won't believe this but it runs like a dream.  I almost hate to give it back to her. 

That's All Folks!!

Have a fabulous day!

I love the clips too! I think I have two boxes of them. ;-) Yay on getting the serger to work!!! Happy Spring!

Maybe you can tell your friend you could be next in line if she finds she doesn't use the serger. Rather have her know that than gift it to Goodwill.

One can never have too much Aurifil. I was fearful I was going to run out of my "go to" light grey, but I realized I had squirreled away 2 spools. Woo hoo.

I have a nice stash of those wonderclips also.
That is probably my favorite Aurifil also. I love that color for piecing with the gray in the bobbin. (it makes it really easy to adjust tension if needed - and also to rips seams if necessary.)

Congrats on getting the serger working. Those must be really good sergers. I didn't see any used ones of that model for sale on eBay.

That is a versatile color and seems to blend in with a lot of colors. I have a bunch of the prewound bobbins that color and love them.I was looking for deals on the the prewounds just this morning.

That serger is a prize for your friend and you are nice to help her out. I love free.
