Look what my husband bought for me at the Asheville, NC quilt show today!! A bee-you-tee-full 1948 Singer featherweight. He took this picture. When I get home, I'll show you what the plate on the left side of the machine looks like...it is gorgeous. He talked me into it. I never would have bought something expensive for myself. He twisted my arm. It came with a case, 6 bobbins, complete original tool set, and more. So excited to get home and try this baby out!!!
He took a couple days vacation. We left Thursday bright and early to go catch a train ride (4 hours long) that included a scrumptious lunch. That evening we ate out and stayed in a hotel. This AM we got started at the quilt show nice and early, then left for lunch at an Asian buffet and went back, where he insisted I "let" him get this machine for me ("OK, babe...if you must!!").
We are not at a marriage seminar/retreat until Sunday afternoon. Wish me luck!!
