tee - duck head
denim skirt - i thrifted this at goodwill because i loved the "V" shape in the front but it was mid calf length originally which is such an unflattering length for me. so to the sewing machine! it's nice and stretchy and fits as well as those denim pencil skirts they're selling at american apparel these days.
our room's still overcrowded and packed with boxes and bags. we're too tired and stressed from moving to do the unpacking, i think.

after telling my mom i wanted a serger for christmas she lucked upon this one from her best friend's, mrs. linda, mom who said i could have hers that she never used. so sweet! however, after hauling it home i can't quite get it to work correctly. i know sergers are notoriously difficult to use when you're in the learning/threading stage, but i'm pretty sure i've threaded it correctly. the problem i'm having is that parts seem to be banging against each other and breaking my needle. when the needle comes down, one of the threaded pieces (sorry for the word mess, i don't know the technical names for any of these parts) comes up and bangs right into it cracking the needle right in two. is this a timing issue from something that got jostled around during the haul from my parents to home? or is it some error on my part that i'm just not getting? should i take it in to the repair shop or is it something i can tinker with on my own? pictures below...

She was educated.
Lifting belly is so strong.
I said that to mean that I was very glad.
Why are you very glad.
Because that pleased me.
A great many people are in the war.
I will go there and back again.
What did you say about Lifting belly.
I said lifting belly is so strong.
Yes indeed it is and agreeable and grateful.
We have gratitude.
No one can say we haven't.
