I've done it!!
I finally have an overlocker. All those days spent acting out my frustration at not having an overlocker, for my audience of one finally paid off.
It was not easy though, as my husband could not understand why I needed two machines, when in his opinion, one could have done the job. Imagine me having to explain the differences between a regular sewing machine, and an overlocker. He still does not get the difference, but at least he got me the overlocker, and that's all that matters. So I reckon I deserve an Oscar nomination, for actually convincing my husband i needed one...granted at one point I seriously looked like I would have a nervous breakdown if I did not get one, but its amazing how all of life's problems seem like nothing when presented with a new sewing machine. I have not eaten all day. Am still in the skies right now.
Choosing the right overlocker was a real pain. I was not exactly sure what brand to go for. I previously blogged about the brother 1034d I got off eBay, which was swiftly appropriated by my mom before I even had the chance to use it. But this one will be hidden the minute my mom tells me she is coming to visit. We don't want a repeat of the brother incident do we?
So after countless hours reading about various overlockers, I decided to go with the pfaff hobbylock 2.0. Purely because my seeing machine is a Pfaff, and I love it. So I guess I am a confirmed pfaffiologue( I don't care if this does not exist).
I should at this point mention that I am scared to use it. So for now I shall contend myself with admiring it, carefully placed next to my Select 4.0.
Happy Sunday everyone.
