Our New Family Member and A Snowy Dallas Day!

This is the newest member of our family. It is a Janome Harmony 9102D. She was a Christmas gift from my wonderful husband. ( I picked it out and ordered it, but he wrapped it and put it under the tree. That still counts as being from him, right?) I have it threaded and have played on it some, but I haven't made anything with it yet. So I have a couple of questions for the peanut gallery:

1. What do you use your serger for? Why do you love it?

2. Do you know any good resources for serger beginners? (ie. website, books, ect.)

I thought I would show you the rest of the crew as well. Here are my other "babies":
I love Nomey, my Janome DC2007LE. I bought a cheap Brother for my first machine when I started sewing in November 2009. I outgrew that machine almost as soon as I pulled it out of the box. Within a few weeks I bought this workhorse of a machine and have lived happily ever after. (Well, in my own little sewing world!)

I bought the Brother PE-770 embroidery machine in May 2010. I like it and it has served me well, but I have not utilized it as much as I should. I have much more to learn about this machine and need to put more time into it.

Finally, it snowed in DFW today. We actually got much more than this, but I didn't get pictures of the rest before dark. This is a rare occurrence here, so the kids were thrilled to get outside and play in it!


  1. Oh goodness...your machines intimidate me! :)

    Love the snow pic!

  2. Congratulations on your new "baby", Courtney! I don't have a serger...they scare me! LOL! But those I know that do have them love them. And the rest of your sewing machine family are pretty cool, too!

    Have fun in the snow...I think it must be snowing everywhere in the U.S. this winter! We are due for 5 more inches on Tuesday.



  3. I am in Dallas right now! I had to walk through it today-I was so happy!

  4. Stopping by from today’s blog hop and am your newest follower. I hope that 1 of my blogs interests you too.
