I have a new toy. I purchased it some weeks back but for a long time there I just stood and stared at it in the box. Then I braved watching the DVD that came with it and since that didn't send me over the edge I took the machine out of the box. It sat patiently on the table for over a week waiting for me to muster the courage to use it, and then I did and it was all fine. Better than fine. Exciting and good even.
The machine came already threaded but in my thrill of sewing up and down scrap pieces of fabric I neglected to notice one of the spools was running low and eventually it ran out. Now I could almost have hyperventilated at the idea of re-threading an overlocker. When I started this blog earlier in the year I was still finding it a challenge to thread my ol' sewing machine.
The incident was declared a family emergency. One and all downed tools and toys to sit with me as I re-watched the DVD trying to figure out how to re-thread the thing... and it was easy! Not the catastrophe that I had believed it to be at all.
Still playing with it really. Hope to show you something that I've made with it other than a veggie bag real soon.
