First of all an update on Phebe, I finished and attached the first of the applique borders (or ‘frames’as Di Ford calls them in her pattern). I don’t know if I will do more of the little flowers on the corners, it looks like I could do some more, but once the next frame is attached to it, this will be a thin frame so I will have a look at it at that time.
Then: some of you may already have noticed her in the pictures in this blogpost.
Sunday week ago (October 7) was my birthday and DH surprised me with this beauty. Actually, I saw her on the internet a while ago. At the time DH suggested I might want her as an early birthday present, he figured with my maiden name (White) I should really have a white Featherweight too, and who I am to contradict such a wise man??
She arrived in a familiar box,
in her pretty case
She works like a dream, and we bought her here, same place as The Duchess. Of course she needed a name, something a bit more frivolous than the classy Duchess and so because of that and her colour I decided on Blanche.
I think we’ll have much fun together, The Duchess, Blanche and I!
