A few days back I had tested the waters and pulled out my manual -followered it to the letter and on a practice piece of flannel - it looked amazing.But I was dumb enough to put it back to the original position to finish up whatever I was working on then?
Talk about beginners luck! Since this was my second try at it - I guess Lady Luck did not consider me to be a beginner now and that luck just up and flew out the window. !I have tried just about every combination of adjustments on the machine , but it just does not want to play fair with me. Did you ever have one of those play-mates that you Always had to let them pick out what to play - or they refused to play?????????????Well, that is how the serger is today and I believe I am a little "miffed " at it!
I guess I could say my time has not been wasted because I now know how to take one of the stitch fingers off without having a panic attack and I have learned a lot about which is my upper looper and which is my lower looper! I now know more about what is called a rolled edge hem and what is called a narrow edge hem, so I guess we could say that I have learned something ???
So, let's just say that I have lost a couple of battles , but there is still a lot more of the war to come yet. :) I am mad at it and it is just sitting over there in the corner glaring at me . It looks so perky and happy - But - its day will come.
Well, thank you all SOOO very much for letting me vent!
Our weather turned cooler this after noon and I got chilly. DH is working on the outdoor stove. He is putting water back in it (that takes about 3 hours) and he has started a fire already so it will be heating the water as it flows into the stove tank.
Then a very Fine mist of rain moved in and I told DH that looked like a snow cloud if we were a little further down the road in time. :) Just seeing the mist - made me feel that Winter was here .Thank goodness it is only the beginning of Fall- that is bad enough , for me. I guess I better just break over and start to pull out my long sleeves once again . :)
So, I am sending love to each of you and prayers that you each will have the strength to do battle with what -ever your monsters are, whether it be a machine -OR - a very weary brain. :)
