I got no sewing done over the weekend. David monopolized all my time in the garage. The garage looks fabulous. Well it will look fabulous once the trash man comes by and we make a couple trips to our friends house for a garage sale this week.

He hit the road this morning and I haven't called or texted him at all. My sister in law is bugging him enough for everyone right now.
Going to be a super quiet weekend at the house. Since Kim ran away and moved in with her biological mother. And now Mason gone for 4 days. What am I going to do with myself all weekend?

The Halloween treat bags are done. Well the eight bags are sewn. They don't have any contents yet. We have had too many sweet treats at the office this past month. I think I am going to put fruit in the bags instead of candy.
Several rolled edge napkins are done. Too many to count. The tan linen turned out nice. Great texture to it. The Purina checkerboard pajama pants are done. I sure hope they fit. Button fly and elastic around the ankles. I serged the inside seams, hope they hold up. I get a little dizzy looking at them for too long. Need to find thread to match this blue to serge a rolled edge scarf.
Several items for my cousins wedding were completed. You don't get to see photos until after the wedding.
We tried a new resturant yesterday for lunch called Eat Well Sushi Buffet. They call it a modern Japanese sushi buffet. Very neat place. The sushi was amazing. Got to try several types that I wouldn't have normally ordered. Although I was not brave enough to try the octopus, Mason did. He said it tasted like octopus, so I am glad I didn't try it.

Here is the new serger. We became friends this morning.
The second birthday towel for my intern. She was a good sport about not getting both on Friday.

All the online reviews for any serger talk about how complicated they are to thread. Mine came pre-threaded with four different colors which I thought would be very helpful. I was going to change out each thread one at a time so I wouldn't mess it up. Well that just frustrated me even more. The video that came with it even suggested just knotting the new thread to the old to get it loaded correctly. I just ended up just pulling all the color coded threads and threading it with my cones of white. Worked just fine and should have done it hours earlier.
I even felt confident enough to remove the finger-thingy and the left needle so I could try a rolled edge. Worked great. It does so many different types of stitches using a miriad of settings on all the dials and knobs it is going to take a while to get used to it. As long as I keep the instruction book handy I think I will be fine.

I told her I owe her the second towel. I just couldn't get to it last night. I ended up making Cream Soda cupcakes from scratch for her so she forgave me.
I have had two migraines this week. Last night was horrible, worst I have had in a long time. Finally figured out the source, another cracker that has garlic powder in it. Needless to say I am a bit exhausted from not sleeping.
David sent me a text a little bit ago. My toy is in... finally my serger has arrived. Can't wait to play with it this weekend. Hmmm... What will I make first? I actually have no idea. But I did stock up on some larger cones of thread just in case.
