|I got this baby for my 16th birthday |
and never looked back since
Then Steph of 3HoursPast wrote about needles and the importance of listening to your machine. Pretty sure I failed at this... My poor machines trapped in a relationship of take take take. So when I sat down to serge some loose threads before I threw stuff into the dryer I noticed my serger was not making happy noises and decided to take note.
|Corduroy is great for cleaning the lint off your brushes with|
one quick swipe. Those tiny leftover knit scraps make great
wipe cloths for this stuff too.
|Look guys! It's your tension dial up close and personal!|
|Some sewist decided to clean their machine and was mesmerized by the beauty and intricacy of its inner workings|
and decided to express that in fabric! Steampunk was born!
So that was the extent of my "sewing" today. The serger sounds a lot better now and we'll see how it actually sews with new needles. I need it in tip top shape for our May Stashbusting Challenge!!!!
Speaking of Stashbusting, Cation's got April's Link Party open so head on over and enter your Vibrant Things and see if you'll be chosen as our second Challenge winner!
