That sounds right!  Hubby came in from outside and asked what I was doing. I  Said that organized food for later and showered, and was cutting out masks.  Then in replying to me TWICE he referred to a BIG meal....I had to set him straight and say, nope, just a meal!  Don’t be expecting all day cooking!

lol,,,a small ham, I boiled some eggs to make deviled eggs, making a Box mix of lemon bars. Oh, and potatoes, maybe scalloped, maybe not!  That’s big meal!

I have a lamb roast - that will go on in a couple hours...made eggs for deviled eggs, a small portion of mint gelatine (we love the taste of mint with lamb but don't eat jarred mint jelly anymore...) I am making a tangerine cake and maybe an apple gallete... lamb will be served with roast potatoes and we need to eat up the asparagus...should have PLENTY of leftovers for the next few days!

I LOVE my serger and use it for lots of stuff.  I have TWO Babylock sergers -- Evolve and Enlighten.  LOVE!

Why don't I use this thing more?

Because you have to drag it out?  I have to drag mine out and when it sews good it sews good, but the tension is a bugger to adjust.

I should give mine a place so I can use it!  Jonna loves hers.




I am doing a small ham. scalloped potatoes and mixed veggies (what I had!), and homemade bread-one loaf is almost gone.  Nothing better that an end piece of homemade bread fresh out of the oven with butter on top!!!





Jonna loves hers.

Ha Ha, I see Jonna already told you she loves hers!!

If you only had the RIGHT kind, you would never have to worry about the tension.  Heh.

Mine has a place.  It is out and plugged in all the time.  It was even threaded.  I did have to dust it.  That was a bit horrifying.

I think I just don't know what to do with it.  I don't make clothing and how many napkins do you need?

What am I supposed to DO with it?

I finally made myself sew. I traced the pants pattern I wanted to make along with a few changes, mostly just made it longer. Did that yesterday. Today I cut it out of some old fabric to make a trial pair. I then decided to start sewing. If I did not have to stop for a ZOOM call with all DH cousins and dinner I would have finished. I guess I will get them done tomorrow, just have done enough for one day and it is getting late. I may actually like the sample pair if they fit well...........that is why I sew them up in fabric I am not crazy about.

For dinner I made bread in the bread machine I dug out of storage, frozen salmon form Costco, rice, broccoli, rice and a salad. It was a pretty good Easter dinner.

As soon as I get these pants made up I want to make some masks out of the interfacing and the N95 type pattern. I did make some rectangular masks already and plan to make more.

I've been using my serger for masks too.  There was a tutorial out there specifically using server.  pretty slick.  Love that it binds the seams at the same time.  But the seams aren't as nice and tight as a straight stitch.  It was the tutorial where I got the idea for one long tie rather than cutting them.
