I've been hinting. I've been teasing. Now I think its time to start having a little real fun around here. Are you in the mood? What would you say if I waved this under your nose: Would you say, "Yes, please!!"?? How about if I said you had to be patient a little longer for the big payout, but that I would love to share one of these to tide you over?: It just so happens that someone around here had a birthday last week. Someone who has a mother that happily supports a hobby that has begun to clothe her granddaughter in exceptionally cute outfits. The crowning gift in said birthday celebration just happened to be one of these: Oh yes. It is my first serger. I don't have a clue where to even start with this darn thing, but I'm giddy at the prospect of learning. I mean really, look at these dials! They must hold the keys to sewing magic. I'm sure of it. So here's the deal. I think my serger needs a name. I've never been one to name my cars or computers or gadgets, but for some reason I think it is time to break that rule. My quandary is that I'm horrible at the naming game. In comes that beautiful little charm pack featured above. Let's have a contest!! The rules are insanely easy: Name my serger! I have a sewing machine, too. If you feel it needs a companion name feel free to add that in your entry. Or just name the serger, no pressure. Tell your friends, spread the word, enter as often as you like! I guarantee to leave this contest open for at least 1 week. If I haven't chosen a winner by the end of 7 days, I'll extend the contest until the right name comes up. The gifted writer that offers up the winning name will be the recipient of the charm pack. Is that easy enough? Let the christening begin!
