Merry Christmas to Me

My parents learned long ago how to make us happy...Money. Ok not really they love us and taught us to love Jesus!! But... they give us cash for Christmas.. Now my dad is a gadget freak. If QVC had been around while I was growing up I can just about imagine the stuff we would have had. My mom is a techno freak. Put those two together and you have 2 techno gadget freaks....

Now growing up my parents were the first on our block to have a VCR. I think I was 7 at the time so this was in 1976ish.. I remember telling my friends that it could record TV and they said that I was lying and there was no such thing. Good friends are always hard to find...LOL

Ok so back to my post. I have wanted a serger since my mom got one 20 or so years ago. But back then there were way out of my price range. Well this year my parents were the proud givers of a serger to me. It has been in the box for a few days. I took it out last night. I had watched the DVD the same day I got it and thought.. yeah I got that... well after nearly chucking it out of the window last night, I went to bed. This morning I brought the macbook downstairs and popped the dvd in while piddling with the serger. I think I got it!! I am working on a bag to carry my B and Bible study gear. I just have a few things left to do and it is complete. My parents also got a sidewinder for me. It loads the bobbins for you so much better than my sewing maching.

Ok here are pictures for those of you who have no idea what I am talking about.
First the sidewinder then then serger... aren't you just thrilled beyone belief?????

That looks complicated. I will have to stick to just putting on buttons. Congratulations to you!
