Singer Limited Edition 160 Sewing Machine Gift

Hello Everyone
Hope you are having a great weekend. 
I wanted to share my joy with you all. 
My husband and daughter surprised me with an Easter gift today and it is so awesome.  First, some background.  I love to sew. 
I'm not good with a pattern but I can free-style sew just about anything I set my mind to.  
I have 3 sewing machines and they all do different things.  One is just a regular plain sewing machine with average 52 stitch capability, another does embroidery and has like a million different stitches and functions and the 3rd one is an old singer that has personality.
My husband is such a romantic in his old age. 
It took 32 years but I think he's finally got it, lol.
Now, without further ramblings,  Tah Dah.
Below I noted the features in case anyone is looking to purchase one
