I love my serger!

I finally got one! Actually, I got it about a month ago. I have yet to do more than a simple serged edge and some rolled hems. Although the rolled hems did not quite work out as planned. I have forgotten about it a few times & just sewn like I normally do. It may take me a while to work it in naturally. But I'll get there.

Here she is....

Hello Sweetie

The Doctor has arrived! Well, at least his TARDIS has. That's Time and Relative Dimensions in Space for those of you unfamiliar with Doctor Who...which is a darn shame.

The TARDIS has been traveling around our area recently. Spending a couple days on different lawns. We were lucky enough to have it land this morning.

There is even a light on top that we can turn on tonight...how fun is that?!? I hope the timey-wimey noise box is still functional.

So where did this awesome piece come from? Well, the band director is a Whovian and at the last choir/orchestra concert...Hijinks and Hilarity... it was themed as such. They traveled throughout time to important dates in history musically. This TARDIS was on stage and "helped" them through their travels. They had lots of fun with that concert! It was near Halloween and the kids, um, young adults, dressed for the occasion. And my son, being the Doctor Who fan that is is, dressed up as one of the Doctors. Actually, he was a few different ones during the days at school also.

This is the TARDIS on it's first night ....

New Treasury

It has been a while since I made an Etsy treasury. I almost forgot how fun they can be. So thinking about, editing for, and listing of my new additions to the shop...I decided to peek around at other's embroidery pieces. These were some that really caught my eye.
