Must try El Cheapo...

El Cheapo the overlocker arrived on Monday, after a bid on ebay, then a second chance offer.

He was very cheap but he hasn't made it out of the box yet. Must give him a go.

Must also get on quilting this quilt top, finally finished a week ago for Maya.

Enjoy your overlocker - they are such useful things to have!! Love Maya's quilt top - the colours really sing.

overlockers do scare me a bit - all that thread. He is a mighty fine looking fellow for being el cheapo though.

The quilt looks wonderful - full of summer!

Beauty of a quilt! You will have to let us know how it goes with the new machine.

Maya's quilt is lovely. I bet she will be very happy when it is finished. And... El Cheapo will wait. Mine is calling me though. I don't use it very often but when I do I am soooo grateful I have one.

Good luck with El Cheapo... they are so great!! But I actually sold mine recently.. pretty stupid... but the poor one had been in my cupboard for more than 10 years... so someone else needed it more than me... so she is the happy one now..:o))
Love your new quilt for Maya!

Just trying to catch up with my blog reading... Maya is so cute in that jacket! Clever Mum! Hope she is recovered... and I just love that oriental matroyshka! Will keep an eye out for that pattern... and a warm welcome to El Cheapo - will be a good little worker I think...
Cheers! Shari
