My birthday surprise!

Today is my birthday.
The year doesn't matter. Suffice it to say, I am finally feeling a bit better after a brutal few months.

I took the day off work to laze about and fondle my fabric.

My parents came over and brought my birthday present:

A 1950, Singer 221 "Featherweight"! Isn't she lovely! She came with the case and ALL the accessories. I am her second owner! She sews like a dream. Yes, I was surprised and so happy!

I am also very thankful for my parents, and extra grateful they are still here to celebrate with me!

Happy birthday! Nice gift, I've heard they sew wonderfully! Enjoy your parents while you can, it's sad when they're gone.

Happy Birthday! Featherweights are so wonderful, aren't they. I love piecing on mine--such a pretty stitch.
