    Flea Market Find

    Jeff and I did some flea marketing here in town today and I came away with this little gem, a 1952 Featherweight 221 that purrs like a kitten and makes a perfect stitch. They were asking $275 for it, but after finding out there was no case, booklet or attachments I offered $75 and she accepted. I'm calling this one Ruby (after my Mom). She's my 4th Featherweight. I couldn't resist such a good deal.

    She's cute! Every time I get a hibiscus I get bugs. I had a lavender one and I was so sad when it died.

      I have that same color hibiscus and she is not doing well this year. I haven't had any blooms since moving her outside (she over-winters in the house). Hubby transplanted her to a new pot this spring and I think she's in shock. Yours is beautiful.

      And I am so jealous of Ruby! I almost had one the other day, but a lady in front of me snatched her right up. Someday, I hope to own a featherweight. Congratulations on a great deal!

        Living in Fla, I've seen lots of Hibiscus but never a lavender one. Must have been beautiful. Kathy

              I've picked up two addition FWs in the last three weeks - Now we're even!!

                    That looks like my Featherweight. It was my very first machine. My dad worked for Singer and he got it for me when I was a girl. I still have it and it still sews great!.

                          Ruby looks happy to be in her new home. And your hibiscus is beautiful.
