Update on my serger ~ I picked it up this afternoon, serged the pattern and it is on its way to Eau Claire, Wisconsin. While the Bernette is back working again with only a threading issue I still see a need for a backup serger.
A friend gave me a New Home My Lock serger which is seized up. Instead of buying another it might be worthwhile having it looked at and repaired vs. spending $500 or more on a second serger. During my on-line search did see a Utube video of someone fixing a seized up Janome serger so maybe I've nothing to lose by getting a screw driver and do what that guy did if oiling the machine doesn't fix the problem first.
Truth is I still haven't accomplished much in the way of hooking but will give an update on the Horse with Scrolls rug anyway.
Between the horse's front and back legs on the original antique there is a light hooked strip but not sure I'll keep mine as hooked. Also not convinced on the leaf colors either. What I do know for sure is that hooking makes me happy and I'm about to get back to it with a glass of cabernet knowing my pattern orders are shipped and my serger is working fine for the time being.
Happy Saturday and happy hooking.
