TALES OF OUR TRAVELS AND OUR LOVE OF ADVENTURE

How do you quilt when you have no electricity?

With this:


This is a Singer 99K hand crank sewing machine. It's an early Christmas present from Don. I'll be able to take it on all our trips where we know we'll be either boondocking or at a campground without hookups.  It was "born" in 1936 in Clydebank, Scotland, and is in pristine condition. I am soooo thrilled that we'll be able to go to all the neat places we've been planning to go to, and I will still be able to sew!

That is a terrific machine. Not only useful in boondocking places, but really in primo condition and beautiful. Thanks for showing it.

He's a good man. Any-timing may end up being our plan as well. We shall see.
