I'm trying to justify buying a featherweight. I already have 3 machines. And I use them all. Then I got to thinking, dh has 7 or 8 or 10 fishing poles. Not sure how many - never actually counted them. I have no idea how much fishing poles cost and I don't care how much money he spends on anything!! We never complain about each others' spending. We're both so tight we squeak when we walk, so we don't spend money foolishly. Is equating fishing poles and sewing machines a fair comparison?
