New Toy

I just bought myself a new toy – a state tax refund/early birthday present toy.  I’ve been obsessing about getting a serger/overlock sewing machine for myself, and finally decided to just go for it.  Here’s what I got!  I was actually all set to by a Kenmore from Sears – they had one on display, for a good price, and I LOVE my 30-some-year-old Kenmore sewing machine.  However… when I went to buy it, they told me they don’t actually sell that model anymore.  I’m not entirely sure why it’s still on display, but… whatever.  They supposedly had two of the “new-and-improved” replacement model for the display… but couldn’t find them.

So… I headed off to do more research.  However, I did need to buy some buttons – off to JoAnn, where they happened to have some NEW machines in stock – better and, of course, pricier, than the ones they’d had a couple of weeks earlier.  I asked a couple of questions of one of the (normally not very friendly!) saleswomen.  Wow!  She was enthusiastic.  She has the same model, and LOVES it, and told me all about how wonderful it is, and how easy it was to use, and how she uses it for everything, and how if I bought it and had any problems, she’d come over and help me, and she knew I would just LOVE it…  Well!  You can’t turn down that kind of enthusiasm, can you?!  So, I came home with a new toy. 

So far, I’ve played around with it a little on scrap fabric, and then I made a super cute skirt out of some gorgeous fabric I got on clearance.  I’ll post pictures as soon as I come up with a flattering one.  (Ha ha, we’ll see if that ever happens!)  The coolest thing was how insanely quickly I was able to put it together!!  I can’t wait to make more.
