They are getting hard to find so I was glad to get one in pretty good condition.
She's a very basic 1926 Model 66, but I'm a basic sort of seamstress so I think we'll get along well.
In this photo she is still very dirty and without a few necessary parts like a belt and spool pin, but she's clean now and new parts have been installed. I really wanted to have a machine that doesn't require electricity. This one fits the bill beautifully. I'm still learning to treadle efficiently, but I'm really enjoying the learning.
This is our turnip greens bed and much fuller and nearly large enough to pick now. Love them greens. One of our favorite meals consists of turnip greens and country ham on biscuits. Can't wait.
Yesterday Goodman and I took a 2-hour road trip to Muddy Pond, Tenn. I wanted to get a jar of fresh sorghum, and a family there makes it the old-fashioned way which is fun to watch. I took pictures with my cell phone, but they are not good. I'm posting this youtube video from Tennessee Crossroads so you can get a good tour of our destination.
