Below you can see I at least got the tires on the tractors and trucks. The truck tires were quite easy, cut out a circle and sew on. But the tractor tires were lots of ins and outs to cut for the tread. AND then I had to sew 4 stitches across, 4 stitches down, 4 across, 4 up, etc etc etc all around each tire----16 tires! But don't they look superb? I even got 1 of the filler strips done before Viking gave out. Oh I'm going to love this quilt. I know the 2 recipients will too.
Today is Mother's Day in the USA. So Happy Mothers Day to all of you. We got a wonderful CD of Church music at Church and of course a public pat on the back for all the service we give, lessons we teach, meals we take to others, kisses we give to hurts, and all the other things we do as mothers and wives.
Yesterday we spent in Logan at our son-in-laws college graduation. We had a great day celebrating with them, eating, laughing and playing games. He will now go on to get his Masters degree. Their college is all up hill (no lie, I don't think anything is down hill on campus). By the time he gets his Masters I need to be in better shape so I don't almost collapse by the time we get to the actual ceremony. Pretty funny to have my 8 month pregnant daughter trying to help push me up the hill.
Happy quilting to you all. Lynda
