...and then this happened:
You can't tell by the picture, but that bag is pretty huge (and there is another 1/2 full box). But this time IT WAS FREE. I couldn't resist.
In the same week I had a friend who was moving and downsizing AND my mother was culling her stash. They invited me to come look and take what I wanted. To be fair, I really was selective on my choices, and already have two projects in the works from some of that haul. Yeah, I have a fabric problem... but looking at how much fabric I left behind at my parent's house... we know where I get it from.
But that's not even the exciting part! I also came home with this:
A serger (over-locker)! My mom upgraded hers and offered me this one a number of months back, but with all the moving and my level of sewing ability, I just wasn't ready for it yet. Now I've got it up and running in my new sewing room and I think it's going to be a really helpful tool for times when I want a finished seam but don't want to or I am not able to go through the process of a french seam or binding. Expect some new serged projects soon!
