I've updated my Flickr photos also. I didn't have one of the hand crank either and it was real fun to have them all sitting together, my little family. Of course there's two more, The Thug is naturally too big to be in this shot and my old Singer treddle is packed away, this machine doesn't work either as the tension discs are a bit rusty. It's probably something I could easily replace, one day.....
While I was fiddling with Fanny Featherweight, Ant presented me with a little present - the buttonhole attachment that we saw on Ebay and I mentioned here the other day. The boy really does have his moments! But it's also a ploy, it justifies him spending money on the Mini Moke he bought a few weeks ago that needs a bit of work. So now I can't really complain about him purchasing the Moke against my wishes. He can be very cunning when he wants to!
Oh and an update with Fanny. It appears the timing might be out with the bobbin as it will only occasionally collect the top thread when the needle comes down, I'll take it to my repairer next week. I didn't expect it to be perfect, especially coming from an antique shop and this seems to be the only problem with it. I found so much tangled thread around the bobbin holder, no wonder it's out.
PS. Thanks again everyone for the get well wishes!
