This morning I had a class on using my new serger. It was very good, a one-on-one, hands on tutorial on threading the machine, and the different set ups for the various applications. I made samples, and with each I was thinking of how I would use it. My instructor, Jeanne, was very good and we related well.
I'm ready to make some more samples and practice on my own. When I get my sewing machine back from being serviced, I'll be in business. It will be fun to see which machine I can use for each sewing task.
I feel confident!
After lunch I took a walk, since we are enjoying another day without rain. I never really got into the rhythm today and by the time I got back home, I needed to recover in my recliner before doing my back exercises. So I got my mini-lap top and read blogs and emails and Facebook. I also watched the football playoff game between the Jets and the Bengals. While I don't really have a favorite, Dianne of Forks Off The Moment does, so I root for her beloved Jets. And they won! - We are planning to go out to a movie tonight. We love historical movies, especially English, and we'll see The Young Victoria.
I'm also waiting on photos to come in from Jill. Yesterday was Isaac's 7th birthday! Already!
This birthday had a Lego theme, and Jill made a Lego cake. Here is Isaac with his cake eating his special birthday pancakes Friday morning. Jill must have had to get going early to start the birthday pageant so early.
Isaac is nuts about Legos. When we did a skype call in the evening he could hardly talk. He showed us his new Legos, but we could tell his head was full of visions of building, not talking. He had his first "friends" party after school. Irene was not happy because all the kids wanted to do "boy stuff" and not play with her. Jill was glad when they all went home.
The pageant continued today when the local grandma and grandpa and cousins went bowling together, before coming back to the house for a party. I think some of the cousins were staying over night, so I may have to wait awhile for my pics.
Jill will need a rest day tomorrow!
