Entering a Giveaway

Over at Sew MaMa Sew, there is a giveaway of a Husqvarna Viking Serger.

This is the best blog giveaway I have ever entered, I think!

Entries are supposed to say how our lives would be better with a serger. I would sew my little heart out on it!

I think I need a more compelling entry than that. But I'm having a hard time coming up with a compelling "OH MY, A SERGER WILL CHANGE MY LIFE" kind of story, because, not to brag or anything, my life is already pretty awesome. I mean, I get to hang out with these two silly people.

Seriously adorable, right? We have our ups and downs like all families, but we are happy as can be. A new sewing machine would be WONDERFUL, but I'm not sure it will be life changing for me.

It would provide me with another tool to make pretty things for this little munchkin.

(Cue: adorable please give my Mommy a serger face)

I've considered opening an Etsy shop. My motivation is that I would take any money earned from the shop and put in a college fund for Delilah. I like the idea that i could contribute to her education and future by creating and sharing. A serger would open up a whole other world of projects for me. It would be lovely to finish seams so fast. I could go berserk sewing knits. I love the look of rolled hems on some of the clothes I own and would LOVE to do that myself.

And...if we are fortunate enough to have another child, the possibilities of serging stuff for an infant --- OOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooh!
A serger would provide me with more creative freedom. It would be lovely.

So, fingers crossed.


  1. My mom is a seamstress and used to sew all of my ballet companies costumes. She can sew anything. (I think) She gave me her serger. I will not be entering the giveaway. You sew the cutest clothes - you deserve it! :) I hope you win!

  2. I think you deserve to win that serger. Just send them a picture of your cute little girl's face, how could they resist? :D


I love comments!
