serger pangs

It took much less time to make these two buddies than to deal with my broken serger. After the denim slipcover project my serger QUIT (really, can I blame it?) So, off to a repairman. There are no pleasant words for the first *@!!# gentleman I took it to - after a sketchy hand-off, the situation got worse and worse and eventually I got my machine back put together so poorly that it would have cost me $250 just to put it back together properly! I had no choice but to get a new machine, right? At this very moment I have a new Kenmore 81595 serger in a box, at my feet, waiting to be played with. Worrying that my own lack of serger care caused the problem in the first place, my sewing machine is now getting a tune-up too. Better luck this time?

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog - it was great to come and look at yours. I love the photo of Sadie on the grass - reminds me of when Thomas & Alice both sat on grass for the first time and HATED it. Their faces were pictures of disgust.

I agree with you about red in quilts. As I've been sewing together the pieces of this one, I've been musing that red must be one of the ultimate, if not THE ultimate, quilt colours. How were the Kaffe F quilts?
