I am a simple gal who just loves ruffles, ric-rac and bunting.

Owl and the Sewing Cat. I had a lovely day learning not to be so scared of the Overlocker, mostly threading and unthreading the machine, learning how to balance all the threads and testing out different stitches like flatlocking.

And about one hundred times faster and more smoothly than the sewing machine!
