What a serger can do

 I realized I never posted these pics I took of my serger so I could show what it does....actually the only thing I've figured out so far would be more truthful!
 It's a little scary as it cut the excess material away as it finishes the seam
 This is the finished seam.....I have to add that the machine came pre-threaded & while I was doing this one of the threads ran out so I had to figure out how to thread it.  There is a lower looper, an upper looper & two needles.  I had a quick lesson in the store watching someone do it & I figured I could do that.

Wrong!

 I forgot the most important part of the equation.......it has to be threaded in order from right to left & I just threaded the one that ran out & it only took 59 tries before I remembered that part!
This is a "before" picture


& the "after"

  2. Rosie loves the black one. But she is an orange and yellow girl....she just asked for an orange bedroom. I'm looking on the brightside and thinking we won't need to use lightbulbs in there.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
