Alternate Energy Source?

After a hot, humid day, we have thunderstorms and tornado warnings in the area tonight.

As I was putting the girls to bed, my husband came in, put his hand on my shoulder, and said in a serious voice, "We need to get an emergency power supply in case the power goes out . . . while you're sewing."


  1. Now, was that sarcasm, or unbelievable sweetness??

  2. Can you be sarcastic AND sweet?

  3. This is why we have treadle sewing machines. Clearly our foremothers knew something we didn't.

  4. You can even treadle a zig-zag machine! Some people have even rigged up treadles to power sergers. Or just get a vintage treadle-powered straight stitch machine - mostly they are fairly inexpensive. And fun to use!


Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
