Merry Christmas to all!

Santa and Co. were very good to me this year!  Here is my crafty haul...
Sewing books
A few books to add to the library,
A couple of great patterns, including the brand new My Image pattern magazine!!  I'm so excited about this one!  There are some really cute styles in here, for both children and misses.
and a couple of new feet. I've wanted a walking foot for some time and can't wait to get this going. The other foot is an elastic/tape application foot for my brand new....
SERGER!!!!! Yay! I really can't wait to get this set up and going. I might just spend the next couple of sewing days seeing what this baby can do.
And for my yarnie friends...
Knitty fun
The yarns are Cascade 220 Superwash - 7 skeins, which should be enough for the Corona hoodie that I've been wanting to knit and Kraemer Sterling silk & silver, a beautiful wool/silk blend shot with actual silver.  It is fingering/sock weight, so I'll have to find a pattern that will show it off properly.  Maybe it's time to knit my first socks...

I hope that those of you who celebrate are having a wonderful holiday!


  1. OMG You've must have been very good this year :) Can't wait to see what you create with such fabulous gifts!

  2. Yay on the serger! With all the sewing you do, it's about time, and it will change your life, I think!!! Well done on your haul, enjoy.

  3. You lucky duck!!! I can't wait to see what you produce...Happy Christmas to you and yours!

  4. I love your new serger - I can't wait to see your new projects - I too have fast fit - and used it for a recent alteration involving a sleeve - wonderful ideas - and a bit more detailed than FFRP in a different way. Congratulations you really racked up!

  5. Wow! Lucky, lucky lady!!! Merry Christmas! You'll love your serger, by the way...

  6. I got the same serger! It's ready to go right out of the box- prethreaded and all. (And super easy to thread if you change settings around- I've already taken off a needle and the something-finger to do rolled hems!)

    I got some Jalie patterns as well, and am going to give knits on a serger a try. I'm super excited.

    Can't wait to see what you do with it, because I definetly admire your sewing.

  7. I have the same serger and love it (it was last year's Christmas gift). I can't wait to see what you do with it. You're so talented the book might be enough for you, but I really learned a lot in the serger class I took. Lots of little tips and tricks. Lettuce edging will be a fun one for Myra!

  8. Wow--have a great time with your new toys!

  9. How nice ~ You will enjoy this new toy :)

  10. Yay!!! You got the same serger that I did! I think I'll be spending the next few days doing the same thing as you! Have fun!! Oh, and Merry Christmas!!!

  11. Nice sewing loot! Have fun enjoying your great gifts-- they're well deserved!

  12. Wow!! Great loot!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS (er... a day late. So, um, Happy Boxing Day!)

  13. You will love your serger! Holy cow--you'll never want to stop sewing knits. What a great gift!

  14. Santa really did well for you this year! :) Enjoy your new toys.
