Stay/sewcation ending

It has to be written somewhere that when your sewcation is about to end and you hope to squeeze in one more project before returning to the world of work, that you can not get your serger to cooperate.  I had to re-thread my serger four times before all the stars in the universe would line up correctly so that the serger would serge appropriately.  Now that all things are in alignment, I was able to stitch the darts in the Sorbetto top and top lining.  Before I had to stop and take care of breakfast etc.

I really am pleased how well the fabric is sewing.  With crinkles, metallic threads running through the fabric, etc. my concern was skipped stitches and such.  I am using a metallic needle and it is sewing beautifully on this fabric (sigh of relief).

More updates later if I can find time to sew again today.


  1. That's interesting because by Sunday I'm happy to put things away, and settle down with a book for my last day. I've usually accomplished what I wanted, am calm and rested and ready to face the world again.

    Hope you do get some time to sew up this one last project today.

  2. Its definitely written somewhere. Now that all is in alignment.. you will be marveling at what you accomplished on your last sewcation.

  3. I think it's sort of sad when a sewcation ends. My serger acted up a little early during the sewcation, and I also found myself wanting to churn out just one more project. Hope you had a great time.
