    omg yes. Mine finally came yesterday in the mail and am I glad that I was watching for it to come, because I was headed out in the rain to go to work and I know that she would have left it out in the rain all day til either I came home or the hubby did. She is so pretty and looks even better than I expected it to. Last night I used it to make a stingray costume for my 2nd grandson for his last day of school. he looks so cool and very proud Grandma made it on the spur of the moment. we went to Joanns to buy the material and you'll never believe it. I had the 50 and 40 coupons but didn't need to use is on the table that fits the rotary cutter for $20. clearanced out. gotta love that it just fits the table of the fw that I jsut got. will send pics when I get home as I am rained out again.

    My best friend was with me and she saw it to. I asked the lady how much and she said $20 for the old machine. I picked it up, handed her my $20 that I had carefully stuffed in my bra for just this occasion and left!... When we got in the car my friend said OMG I was trying so hard not to giggle and jump up and down!

    OMG...you were so lucky! I probably would have given away my excitement to the lady selling it!! I would have had to zoom out of there, then pulled over and got out to do the Happy Dance!!

    This is my first FW, I do have a few really old machines that were my great grandma's but this is my first FW find! I'm so excited. It only had the machine, no accessories, so i will have to hit ebay for the accessories.

    OMG is way too calm for this fantastic bargain. You are a very blessed quilter indeed! I was tickled to death to get my FS for $200K including postage. You must be elated.
