I finally bought myself an overlocker a couple of weeks ago. A nice vintage Janomelock I found on ebay, in excellent condition except for a missing power cable and foot peddle. After a bit of ringing around I found a repair man who thought he might have one 'in a box somewhere'. After a couple of days searching (and a couple of days in the post) the cables finally arrived yesterday and, with the help of Cintia and her sewing machine know how, I've been over-locking myself silly ever since.
First off the rank were a couple of sewing machine covers, then I tackled a dress alteration for Ada and I'm currently in the middle of some new cushions for the couch, olive green velvet with hot pick buttons...tre sexy, yes?
There really is nothing quite like having a new toy.
