    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

    I really love your Zita. My FW is original color (black), but when she came I just couldn't get over the small size...so she became my "Little Princess". So, truly understand your name for your lovely little girl. She is beautiful. Don't they sew so beautifully!

    Love your dresden plate and your FMQ. Good job on both.
