First, though, I was planning to post some photos of last night's quilting program at Our Savior's Lutheran Church but after I got home and got all the quilts unloaded and put away, I was too tired to load photos and write about it. I have to be up early in the morning to head to Iowa for a day out with my crazy quilting friends, so I needed to get to bed. Didn't want to leave you without something to read with your morning coffee so I thought I'd post these tractors..........
Why tractors? Well, I passed these implement dealers with their big shiny tractors on my way to Iowa last weekend. I marveled at the sheer size of them and thought about how much I love fall and watching tractors and combines in the field at harvest time. I can hardly wait to make a trip in October as they are always out in abundance at that time of year.
When I drove past the dealerships on my way home, the thought occurred to me that these big machines are to a farmer what a long-arm quilting machine might be to a quilter. LOL! So, if my husband were a farmer and wanted one of these, I'd say "sure, dear, and while you are out, pick me up a long-arm quilting machine." I know that the tractor is far more costly than the long arm is......... but........and here's when my "bubble burst".......I'm not married to a farmer! I'm married to an engineer who likes fast cars. If he decides he wants some fancy thing....car that is...I think I know what I'll suggest I'd like. :-) Then again, maybe all I need to do is show him that race quilt that is off being machine quilted and when he sees it, he will want more and we'll just have to buy a long arm. I can dream, can't I? :-)
Actually, I'm so tired perhaps this post is a dream............. LOL!
July hotness is with us and more stormy weather possible. It's July so that's normal. I'm counting the days til Fall......60 days to cool weather.......I can hardly wait!
