It's Saturday afternoon, after a tough week I have the house to myself. DD has a birthday party, DS has a hockey-sleepover party and DH is away running for a last training before Wednesday when he wants to do a 15 km run. This morning my two Jalie patterns arrived in the mail. I could do with an instant gratification project, and traced a Jalie tee, cut it and wanted to sew it with my serger. No way... my serger is on the point of breaking down I think. 16 years old, already a repair job last year. I did everything I can do: cleaning, oil, other thread (started with Seralon, a high quality serger thread) and other, new, needles. Re-threading numerous times. Nothing helped. My tee could easily have been finished by now, and all I have after over an hour of trying are these accumulated scraps.
Time to make dinner for the two of us. After that I'll try again.Thank you all for your comments on my last post: I agree about the points made about finding out that the pattern you want turns out to be a RTW item and that the line drawings are important for the details in the back too. The last point was in my post originally, must accidentally have deleted that while editing.
