Friday Night Sew In

I didn't actually sign up for the Friday Night Sew In.
Most times, when I do, I end up forgetting.
Plus, I am really not a night time sewer.
But, I am having a hard time adjusting to a baby in my house all day so I get no sewing done and NEED to start sewing at night.
I love that baby, but she is truly a distraction of the best kind!
So, the to-do list get's longer, the time (until christmas) get's shorter.
Feels like the story of my life! LOL
But, last night, I didn't sign up for the FNSI for a good reason.
It was my 19year anniversary.
Yep, 19! I don't feel old enough to be married that long, and have a daughter graduating from high school, but its the truth.
So, hubby and I went out to dinner and I knew I wouldn't feel like sewing later on.
Except I did. Feel like it. So I did. Sort of.
My birthday is Thursday, yep, thanksgiving day. It falls on thanksgiving more often then I like.
So, knowing what I was getting, I begged to open my gifts early.
And, look:.
What a surprise!
Noooo, not really, I picked it out, but I am so excited about it!
I have wanted a serger for years, but was intimidated by them and really not sure how much I will use it.
I spent 3 hours learning to thread it last night. I didn't sew a thing, except for some scraps as I tried it out. BUT I FIGURED OUT THE THREADING!!!!!!
OMGosh, yeah!!! Today, I will be sewing on it.
I'm quite happy with my FNSI results :)

Well Happy Birthday!! What a sweet gift (even if you picked it out yourself)! If I sewed more clothes, I would love to have a serger myself. I can't wait to see what you create with it.
