…gone twenty seconds after I set it on this plate, before dinner even started. Maybe that was why I used paper.
I’m off on a baking- and sewing- weekend. After seeing cookie recipes like this and this, and kid pants like this, I am feeling all domestic and crafty, like the world can be had at my dough covered fingertips (but I’ll wash them before I sit down to sew).

I am looking for a Serger sewing machine, and any advice you might have would be appreciated. Should I bother shopping for a used one? What brands are most trustworthy? My regular sewing machine was a wedding gift, so I really have no clue. Now that I see all the wonderful things that can be made instead of bought, I would love to have those perfect, overlocked edges, too.
