Really Random Thursday, 3/14/13

We are spoiled by all the beautiful pots of flowers in the shopping centers around here.

Good philosophy.
I'm confused. Why the breakdown of hours by days of the week? Aren't they all the same?
After convincing Mark that I needed a serger, and then never even plugging it in for two years, I finally took a class yesterday. I was intimidated with threading it. The upper looper (which is just fun to say, by the way) is pretty easy; the lower looper, not so much. But with practice, I think this little machine will come in quite handy.
So serious...but I just adore that bow in her hair.

What's happening in your world?

Gorgeous flowers and a good philosophy :)
That bow is too cute!
Happy serging! x

Think what the cake shop could have saved on sign writing fees with a simpler 'Open 11-10, every day! Love the serious look and the bow- very cute!

Don't you ever drive by someplace at 9:05 or on Sunday just wondering if they happen to be open that late or on that day? That sign makes it easier to read for the passer by, perhaps.

Today brings shuffling people to preschool, car mechanic, work, back from preschool, laundry, folding, packing, writing reports and IEP's, and caring for a sick boy.

I've always thought that a serger sounded fun but have been intimidated by them as well! I hope you have fun with it. Today we are going grocery shopping--it's an exciting life I lead!

Sweet bow! We need signs like that here because our supermarkets and petrol stations change their hours all the time :( You never know which garage is 24 hr (if any)! Happy serging :)

Francine said... #

LOL I got a serger Christmas 2011 & have yet to sew a single stitch. In fact, I did take the intro class which was threading, but I already forgot it all :)

Mark said... #

So the question is if it took 2 years to plug it in. What is the over/under bet on how long it takes for Cindy to use it on a project? More than 1 year or less? I can't wait to see this "needed" machine at work. I am glad I am not in a hurry! Mark (really I just like messing with Cindy and am not serious. She is an amazing quilter)

You are going to love your serger. I use mine all of the time.

I love the hair bow AND the very serious look. The photo needs a good caption.

Yes...why the day breakdown. That is too funny.

I am randomly linking up again today. I think this is going to be one of my favorite linky parties. Thanks for hosting!

I love the flowers!
Better way of thinking.
Um ... "Open Everyday, 11:00am-10:00pm" ... why not say?
I have only looked at sergers. Maybe I need to take a closer look.
The bow is adorable and the little girl is seriously beautiful.

Thanks for sharing ... :) Pat

I used to think I really needed a serger. I borrowed my mom's for about a month and never used it once. Hope you'll get more use out of yours!

Katy Cameron said... #

Ha, love the sign, and I often have thsoe WTF moments when looking at shop opening signs! I have the same overlocker, enjoy!

Kristy @ Quiet Play said... #

Ooh have fun playing with the new overlocker! I keep thinking I want one but I'm not sure what I'd use it for. I think I just like sewing things.

Love the bow - so sweet!

Paulette said... #

I still avoid having to mess with that lower looper like the plague. Have fun bonding with your serger. Love the "surround yourself with better people" sign.

Krista Schneider said... #

sergers scare me too! my mom has one i could steal, but i'm too lazy to try and figure it out. glad you're getting there though!

CitricSugar said... #

Let me know how you like your serger so I can put in on the wish list of things I want but have to grow-up first ;-)

My guess with the hours is that they used to have shorter hours on Friday-Saturday, and were closed on Sundays and it was cheaper just to changed the humbers as opposed to getting a whole new sign. Or its a weird local bylaw, like "illegal to walk alligator down the street on a Tuesday at noon" because in some places, there are weird little quirks like that.

Mama Pea said... #

I have a serger I don't use much either. I'm just not very skilled with it. It does a killer rolled hem, though, which I really, really like it for! Try it!

I love the better people sign. That is great.
