Not Off To Market

I am so sad that I am not able to go to market this year!  
It looks like everyone is having so much fun!
Instead I am planning a trip to Raleigh, NC to visit my amazing daughter.  
We have a trip to the beach planned again this year but a different beach.  
We had a lot of fun last time!

I was talking to a very good friend this week about 
what would happen if there were an EMP (electro magnetic pulse) in the US. 
 (I saw something about it on FB).
Info here and here and here.
I'm sure there are more too.
All things that need electricity would stop functioning. 
 We had quite a discussion and which things we had prepared and which things we needed to work on.  It just popped into my head and I said to her, 
"I need to buy a treadle sewing machine so I can still sew!" 
 LOL she proceeded to tell me that I was the only person on the planet that would worry about THAT!  haha.  
She is so wrong, but I love her anyway.

Seriously though it got me to thinking and I decided to start looking for a treadle machine.  
Interestingly enough another good friend was trying to get rid of hers!  
I think NOT!

So look at what is going to be coming to my house when I get back!  
A Singer Red Eye!!!!

She even has it all cleaned up, repaired and running like a champ!!

The cabinet is just beautiful too.

She even has attachments and the original owners manual.  It is a Singer 66 Model.

I haven't actually broken this to my husband yet.  
This will make my 7th sewing machine!!!   
Maybe it is time to find homes for two of the cabinet machines.  
Anyone out there interested in vintage machines? 
 I can take some photos if so.

I hope you are having a good week so far too!!!
