    I joined the FW club today.

    My DH was trying to surprise me but let it slip when he needed a check. He bought it from one of his student's grandma. He paid $225.00. I didn't share with anyone but Charlee. I was sure what I was getting. LOL!

    Her she is:

    Boy she looks like she is brand spanking new and to get all the feet and the manual for $225. You got a bargain.

    He keeps calling her "my baby". So, that is probably going to stick.

    She is all cleaned and oiled and ready to go. I am going to set her up in my sewing room and try her out this afternoon. (As soon as I figure out how to thread her)

    That man's a keeper! Is that a buttonhole attachment I see? Never saw one for a featherweight. Score!

    Your husband sounds like a great guy to surprise you with such a wonderful gift. I have two of them and I call them my babies also. Enjoy her!
