    Oh my goodness.....you have the exact Toyota serger that I bought off Craigs List on Sunday. You're right....it is an old workhorse with metal parts....and that's what I liked about it. Is yours in working order? Did your Aunt show you how to use it? I'm working completely blind here and even though I'm looking at the "quick threading" guide, haven't quite figured it out. And apparently nothing works if you don't get the threading right! Any advice?

    I have that serger too! Bought the floor model in 1992 and absolutely love it. I've only had to have it worked on one time, when I hit a pin and it threw the timing off. Other than that, it's been a dream. Everytime I use it I'm fascinated again at how it works. They are so neat.

I was suprised when the foot pedal was not plastic!! She is very crafty and although she has 10 kids of her own, none are into sewing at all. I totally lucked out with the hobby!

    Here are pictures of my new room - sorry no before pictures - but it was more of an office before, and the things my aunt gave me yesterday.

    I love lighting - so some are taken without flash. I also collect elephants so those are what the little lamps on the desk are.
    WooHoo!! now the fun can really begin! Have you thought of building a sturdy cutting table a little shorter than the length of the bed and a little wider, so the cutting table legs do not interfere with any part of the bed and headboard?

    What a great room. You sure got a lot of fabric from your aunt. I love the serger. It was a great day for you. Thanks for sharing your room with us.

    Looks great. From Ikea, I bought a piece of furniture with 6 cuby holes across and 5 down and put all my fabric in it, each one with differnt types of fabric, linen, wool, cotton, ect. it works great and was not that expensive. But I like the idea of hanging a rod with cotton sheets or curtains across the froot to save on dust and shading from the sun. thanks for that. your room looks nice!
