Just in case you lot think my stress is just a minor glitch in my life plan.
I sat down this afternoon to finally sew up the hems on my new dresses which have been hanging on the wardrobe door for three weeks now.
Thread the needle, tension's fine, foot to the pedal.
Nothing, nada, no response. I can't believe it. The machine's just been repaired.
My feet are pedalling like crazy and nothing's moving.
Oh, I see, my feet are pedalling like crazy.
My electric machine sits on the old treadle machine and there are the feet, treadling away like crazy.
