    Christmas came early-Featherweight!

    DH walked in from work this evening with a black box & said, "Look in there & see what you think".
    OMG! It's a beautiful little featherweight! She is lovely & runs beautifully! I am so, so excited & just had to share. I did look on line & she was made in May 1951. Her little emblem states that she is an anniversary edition

    How sweet, enjoy your "new" machine! My husband got me one (actually 2) recently and I have enjoyed using it.

    What a wonderful and thoughtful gift. DH knows you well and sounds charming and caring. Beautiful machine. Thank you for sharing this joy.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    We have a close friend who goes to a lot of auctions, etc. DH mentioned to him this summer that I wanted a featherweight (only after lots of drumming into his head. He was amazed that friend knew what it actually was. He got it at auction this weekend. DH said he wanted $225- My reply was "that's great!!" DH asked this morning as he was leaving for work, "So are we keeping it?" Of course- silly man!

    My brother just gave me one on the weekend. Congratulations on yours. I'm so excited that I now belong to the Featherweight Club, but unfortunately, she will have to wait awhile as I'm too busy to do her justice right now.
    Quilting is my PASSION not my pass time.
