Pink camo lounge pants

Did you hear that loud wailing today - I know you had to hear it! It seems the closer it gets to Christmas - the more things like to pull a good one on me. I was having enough trouble with these knit lounge pants -trying to decided which person they would work the best for . I had made it as far as I was ready to serge the waist when all of a sudden there was a very loud "pop" that  scared me to death and after I checked all of my body parts to make sure I was still "kicking" - I started to look around and there on the deck of my serger I could see a silver metal piece. After having that fight last night with the serger I was NOT too happy to have it give me anymore trouble-BUT- I guess it was not finished with me because it was a piece of the stitch finger and obviously it was now "OUT  OF SERVICE"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I proceeded to have a "little pity party" and then I decided I was not whipped yet. So , I played around with some of the stitches on my little Janome sewing machine and decided to use one of those stitches in place of the serger stitches to just dress it up a little  . I was even pleased with the way it turned out. Of course it took twice as much time to do .

I wish I could find that "little sewing troll" - I know she hides in my sewing room just dreaming up tricks to pull on me. If I could find her I would give her the BOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. I thank goodness that my machine is finally behaving herself!
    You need to find that bloody troll for sure!

  2. Oh no not a good time to break down. Hope you can get it working soon Linda.

  3. my seger doesnt like me anymore either.. It went down last month Im not sure what happened but like you said it didnt sound pretty.But my is an old machine maybe 20 years or older...
