Yes, I finally used her today for the first time and it was lovely! The larger flat surface is so useful and the tension was just right without having to do anything. She sews beautifully.
I get some small joy from pressing my seams open. There are differing opinions out there as far as how seams should be pressed (I once had someone tell me that I was doing it wrong by pressing them open) but I agree with Elizabeth over at Oh, Fransson! It takes a few extra seconds to do it but I love how it makes everything look as though they are laying next to each other as opposed to on top of one another.
