Pam wrote a comment and asked if I could post a picture of Smudge, since that's her cat's name too. Here he is, surveying his domain. Normally, his tail isn't that fluffy but I startled him. And this entry shows him as a kitten.
I've been working on a big project for a customer at work and it's also the end of the quarter, so that's where my attention has been lately. DBF and I had the opportunity to see Alison Krauss and Union Station Monday evening, and what a good show--excellent musicianship! And the new Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho is quite nice, even though it's currently in the middle of nowhere.
I've been using my new serger's cover stitch to hem up several Slinky skirts. I'm not totally happy with the results so far. The fabric isn't moving through as well as I expected, which is causing some skipping and wavering stitching, especially at the seams. Fortunately, the skirts I've worked on so far have been black prints, so these problems aren't really noticeable. But, but I'd like to get it right, you know? I'm wondering if the foot pressure is too heavy to accomodate the Slinky, so I'm going to try reducing it a bit to see if if helps. Any other suggestions?
