That was some mean slaw.
I had a run-in last night with my 8" chef, and the knife won. I mangled two nails on my left hand, so they all had to get cut down. Turns out making Alabama Hot Slaw on almost no sleep can be a dangerous undertaking. When my nails are super short like this, I prefer to wear very sheer polishes like this one.
Because I was so tired yesterday I couldn't think straight, I decided not to work on my skirt; I'm at the stage of installing the zipper. I was even too tired to do any knitting!
But what I wasn't too tired for was researching sergers. I spent some time figuring out what I want, and Hubby ordered it for me! Should be here on Wednesday - happy birthday to ME!
I'm planning on installing the zipper and waistband of the skirt today, but I've decided to wait on the hem until I've got the serger. Because the fabric is so thick (denim weight) I'd like to serge the edge and then fold it back only once rather than twice.
I'm so excited - I've wanted a serger for many years but always held off because I wasn't sure I would stick with sewing. But over the last 9 months, there have been so many times I've wished I had one, I decided to just go for it.
