Hope you all had a Happy Halloween.
We went to the mall trick or treating crazy busy but much safer as my kids have no concept of street safety. They honestly think they are invinceable. ( did i spell that right?)
It is taking forever for the kids to wind down. One has managed to cover himself in a layer of gum. Funny I didn't know you could do that with gum.
Looks like my post will be cut short now that I have to scrub gum off a kid.

The new machine

Well I've tried and tried and I have a problem with either the way i'm threading my new machine or something. The top thread keeps jumpiong out of the needle. How frustrating.
Everything else seems to be running smoothly so I guess I will call the repair guy Friday.

Well I guess I will have to work on something that does not need straight stitching right away. Out comes the serger. Now what shall I make? Off to figure it out.

I forgot my blurb on my shop at etsy and my etsy team.
I have 2 shops on etsy this shop has minagerie of items and my new shop is going to be more geared towards fun grown uppy things. That is once I am a bit more organized. Hopefully you can take a peak.

I am a member of the alberta team on etsy. So full of talented and uber friendly people. I love them all.
Thanks everyone for your help and ideas.

Psssst! Alison I will get to Calgary for coffee soon.


Hi everybody,
My very own blog.

Well I had 2 custom order handbags yesterday and had to whip out to buy a new iron and a new sewing machine. They just don't make em like they used to. It was a fairly smooth outting until we hit Giant Tiger. My Darling son pulled the fire alarm. The fire truck came and we had a good talk with the fireman, and the store manager, and several employees and customers. I have to say that they were pretty good about it. There might have been an employee or 2 that were upset but that was it. Oh and a very upset and emberassed mommy. Oh well with having 4 boys i'm sure it was bound to happen sooner or later.
Well off to get all of my new stuff set up to finish my orders.
Wish me luck
