For months, I begged begged and begged Jeff to let me buy a serger (as if I needed another gadget to add to my library of other craft machines). The winning argument that finally caused him to cave in was when I claimed “I will absolutely DIE if I don’t get it!!” (jk, I didn’t really say that but that’s how I felt!) Victorious, I did a bunch of research and I settled on this Brother 1034D 3/4 Lay-In Thread Serger that got great reviews on Amazon. I anxiously waited for it to be delivered and dreamed of all the cool projects I could make with this miracle machine. Imagine the possibilities!! I can sew a whole wardrobe of clothes! When it finally came, I tore open the box, took out the machine and then I saw these complicated threading instructions:
….And then I saw FOUR spools of thread and FOUR corresponding needles:
…. And then I panicked at the instruction books and two DVDs that came with it:
….and promptly stuffed it back into the box:
…And shoved the box at the bottom of all my craft supplies, where I forgot about it:
(blogged about the cramming/shoving/storage of my craft supplies here)
This year, I’m turning a new leaf! I am going to bite the bullet, open up the box and learn how to serge!! I am going to do it! It doesn’t matter how long I spend reading that instruction booklet or watching the DVDs, I am going to serge like a woman on a mission! It’s one of my New Year’s goals! Hopefully, I’ll have a finished project to show you guys soon!!
