    As I mention I was getting a light green FW for Christmas. I DH won it for me on Ebay on Christmas eve. Well it arrived last Thursday, and I have been having a blast playing with her. At the time that he purchased her I was thinking of naming her Judy, but now that she has arrived and I see just how tiny she really is I have decided to name her Zita, which is Italian for Little Girl. I have included a pic of a Dresden plate that I made with Zita last night.

    I also mentioned in a previous post that I have finally tried my hand a FMQ. I have included a pic of my first attempt. How am I doing?

    Isn't she a cutie! Did you cover the feed dogs for the FMQ? Set the stitch to 0? I haven't tried FMQ with my featherweight so curious.

    No I didn't use the FW for the FMQ, I used my 401A, and she works great...love these old machines.
    :D
