We're having a quiet weekend in: spag bol for supper, sewing for me, studying for him, and nice dog naps for Beans the woofer.
Yawwwn! "Yep you haven't seen me in while on this here blog. I'm still here either dozing or constantly on the look out for something, (anything, anything at all - I'm not fussy) to eat".
At the moment I'm on a sewing roll and I'm forcing myself to attend to my overflowing WIP box. Here's the first piece to enjoy 'completed' status:
I made this purse so folks could see what this Silver Modern Curved Purse Frame and this Silver Hand Chain looks like in action.
Inside view with matching lining. Perfect size for a day out with room for wallet, lip balm, sunnies, and mobile phone.
I'm looking into getting my mitts on my first over locker/serger machine and I have my eye on this one:
It's a Janome 6234XL. I like the look of it because I like Janome machines and it looks like something I can grow with.
I'm interested in getting an overlocker because I really want to get back into clothes making again. There's a whole world of lounge pants, skirts, and jersey cloth out there to discover and seeming as I'm a short arse making more clothes for myself makes a lot of sense.
This thing is I have never ever used an overlocker before. What sort of issues are there involved with using these kinds machines, what sort of features should I be on the lookout for? What do you like or don't like about these machines? If any of you good folks out there could give me some advice I'd be sooo grateful :)
Have yourself a lovely weekend everyone!
