Meet the new girl!

Yes, I have another sewing machine -- and I'm not going to apologize!

I didn't seek her out, she sort of sought me. She was a hostess gift (!) from mon amie francaise who came for Quilt Festival last year. A Singer Feathweight 222!! I know!!! What an amazingly, awesomely generous gift!!!! And this is the woman who has already given me a Featherweight 221!!!!! (OK, enough with the exclamation points.)

She is passionate about machines a coudre anciennes & often finds them for good prices. Her husband is involved too, he cleans them up & gets them into good working order. So it is an especially lovely gift because both of our friends are present in it. I've decided to call her "Amie". Her first project is stitching some HSTs from several Amy Butler charm packs & she is doing a fine job!

What a cute machine! I best stay away from vintage machines... They are so cute I'd want a room full of them!
