Hustle and Bustle

Big things have been happening around here! Some of the biggest:

Reluctantly, this banner came down. Let's just stay we had a little spooky spirit right through Thanksgiving...
My mother and father-in-law came to visit and left me with a little gift.....A SERGER!!! Best day ever. They must really love me (just kidding, I knew they loved me before they bought the serger!). They are the best. Mostly I've been playing around with it and figuring out how to use it (the model I got is SO EASY to use, more on that later). I started with a little project that's been on my list forever. I had this little hamper from Ikea that was a a good design, but the actual bag on it was made of plastic: ugly, tearing off mess. I set it in my storage room to wait for the day I could sew a new one, and I did it! Easy. Just took apart the old one and copied the pattern. I'm lovin' it.

Next item: pajama pants for J. I used a Sew Easy pattern that it turns out is really boxy and goofy, but I'm happy because now I know how to make pants. They are SO EASY! Er, I mean sew easy?

Many more projects to update. Now I need sleep!!!
