Baby Brothers

In the past six weeks my family has welcomed two new baby brothers.  My sister had an adorable baby boy a week and a half before Christmas.  Just last week my brother and sister-in-law welcomed their third son to the world.

The grandson total is now 5, meaning that we can now officially have a basketball team of boys.  I am so excited about my new nephews.  There is something so special about holding a brand new baby.

We too recently welcomed a brother to our home.  I am thrilled to have my second little guy, this one comes in the form of an overlock server.  I am so EXCITED.
Brother 1034D 3/4 Lay-In Thread Serger

I'd been saving my pennies for a serger of my own.  I received some money  for my birthday, and set it aside.  Unfortunately December brought with it many unexpected expenses....plumbers, root canals, and pending surgeries.  Needless to say the money that I had set aside was used to pay off other bills.

I cried, when some very generous family members gave me my new serger.  It was totally unexpected, but extremely thoughtful. I really feel that I received much more than a new overlock machine.  Their gift really helped me understand how much I am loved, and cared for.  They were aware of the roller coaster ride that we had been on that month, and did something for me that I will not forget. Thank You.

I've used a serger before, but only for the basic overlock stitch.  I've got a lot to learn and explore.  I'm excited to see just what this machine can do.  I'm working on a skirt, and am going to try to figure out a narrow rolled hem, hopefully today.

Welcome baby brothers everywhere.  I'm glad your here.  I'm looking forward to the time that we are going to spend together.

Congratulions on all the new brothers in your life! I just bought that same serger a couple months ago. I haven't experimented with it too much yet. I've just made several pair of pants but I am loving the speed of it! For the price you can't beat it!

Congratulations on all your new brothers! I can totally relate to savings going to "boring" things. I'm excited to see your projects.
