    New girls on the block!!

    Thursday evening at our monthly quilt guild meeting I overheard someone talking about someone else selling her Featherweights. My ears perked right up. I've been wanting one for the longest time. So I got her name and number and called her first thing Friday morning. After hubby was finished plowing snow in the driveway, we went to look. She has a white one and a black one. I fully intended to buy one of them but couldn't decide which one to get. Then my hub (good hubby that he is) whispered in my ear "Get both of them". I almost fainted!!! I did not hesitate for a second after he said that......so....here are my two new girls. Wheeeeee I'm so excited!

    I don't know how to post more than one pic to a post...so here is the one I have the question about.

    The gal told me this one was a mistake because instead of printing Singer on the case of the light, it is printed right on top of the machine. Does anyone know anything about that?

    She's well loved. Some of the decal is rubbed off from years of use and she's in need of a cleaning. She'll be fine!

    Wow - you did luck out. I can understand not being able to decide, would have done the same thing. Have a great time with them.

    That was awful nice of your hubby to let you take them both. I am still looking for a white one. I have a very pretty little black one, plus a I her big sister but she is two tone and going in for a cleaning this week. I will be getting my spartan back he said she is just like a brand new one.
