Wow!!! I must be on a roll. Not even halfway through the month and here I am again. When I started my tafe course I used an overlocker for the very first time ever and it was great, so I decided I needed one. Not being the richest person on the planet I knew it was going to have to be a secondhand cheapie and was expecting to have to pay at least between two to four hundred. So I started looking and look what I found.




It's a Bernina Bernette 334DS .... with differential feed!!! And guess how much..... ....$40!!!!!! Is that a great buy or not? I got it serviced which cost me $76 and it is perfect. I am so happy with it and consider myself very fortunate to find such a bargain :))

Another new toy I recently bought myself is a new camera, a lovely little 12MP Samsung. It's a fabulous little camera, neat, compact and very user friendly. However, it didn't have a case so I decided to make one. I saw some very cute cases on the blog of one of the forum ladies and decided it would be perfect, so I found the website they came from and made one out of these lovely fabrics that just went together perfectly.

Gee Terri, you got a real bargain there! A friend has had an overlocker for years, used to make her sons t-shirts etc, and "Jac shirts" for her hubby. I have never used one. I have seen patterns on U.S> sites for sergers - think that is what they call them over there????
Your camera bag is very pretty, too. ;-)

Thanks for all your comments girls. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do with my overlocker too. We use them for everything at tafe and my DDIL's mother swears by hers. I must say you don't have to worry about things fraying :))
I will always put up a link to any pattern that I use from another site. I believe in giving credit to people when it is their due :)
