I have always been both fascinated and slightly afraid of sergers. I have always shied away from working with knit fabrics so I thought a serger would be just the thing to take me to that next level where I feared no fabric! Well, anticipating a decent tax refund, I purchased(with my husband's blessing) this perfect starter serger. I told myself that if I couldn't figure out how to thread it, it would go back because how could I use it if I couldn't thread it? Well, it is very user friendly. I will let you know when I construct something with it!
I have been a busy little crafter this past week. I made a pair of long mittens from a tutorial on A Lemon Squeezy Home. They were easy and are so warm. I had fleece left because JoAnns had a good sale on fleece so I decided to try something I saw in one of my books. I cut the fleece into continual strips and made a big ball of "yarn" to knit a scarf with. It was pretty easy but if you try it, be prepared to have a slightly sore arm. I usually don't use my rotary cutter for such a long time and I had to press down pretty hard to go through several layers of fleece. I also had to swiffer my craft room floor because cutting that fleece makes a fuzz that goes everywhere! All in all it was well worth it and I can't wait to see the finished scarf. I will put it on here when I am done with it.
I also wanted to show you my bathroom window treatment. For those of you who saw my old treatment on my last post, I hope you agree that this is better. When a window is in the corner of two walls, it isn't easy to come up with something you like but I am happy with this one.
Everyone stay warm and if the weather forces you indoors-happy crafting! Take care. Nancy
