Do you know what this is??? DO YOU???!! If you are in the sewing world you do..if not, it's called a Serger, a Bernina Serger at that, and it does so many awesome things that a sewing machine can't! Well guess what?? IT'S MINE! It was GIVEN TO ME!! Can you believe it?! Can you tell I am excited by all my punctuation? My husband coaches volleyball on the side (he's a programmer by day). They travel to out of town tournaments in different states and all that fanciness. He gets to know some of the parents pretty well on their trips, well... I guess he was talking about me, my sewing, and my project for Lilly, he tends to brag about me a little...or if you know him...A LOT :), so last weekend one of the moms brought this Bernina Serger to my husband to give to me!! She hasn't used it in 5 or so years and was praying for someone to pass it on to, and she gave it to ME! I am still flabbergasted and so thankful and excited. I am bringing it to my sewing teacher tomorrow (she uses all Bernina) to show me how to use it. I still have to write a thank you note...can you ramble like this in a thank you note? But, I figured as part of my thank you.. I will be paying her kindness forward. My blog friend Nancy, who was a big help on Lilly's kimono sewing, told a story about a little girl who has lived almost her whole 1st year of life in the hospital. She is about to go home though! Needless to say her mom hasn't been able to do a lot of shopping. So with the help of my new serger, blog friend Nancy, and anyone else willing to help, I will be making some cute clothes to send to this little girl. Read her full story HERE. Take a quick look and see if anyone has done you a kindness lately and think about PAYING IT FORWARD.
