Tractor Show

Last week on Friday I took the day off and we headed to Ohio to a tractor show. 
 They had some of the antique threshers and steam engines.  It's not really my thing, but I know my hubby wanted to go and the friends he had lined up to go with fell through.  
So, for as many quilt shops he has gone to, I sucked it up and we went to the tractor show.  
It was a beautiful, summer day and I got to spend it hanging out with one of my favorite people! 
 We packed a picnic lunch and off we went!

We were greeted with this row of BEASTS!  LOL.  I just loved this view.


There was a giant cow!  Also a Flea Market of sorts.  You name it and it seemed to be there!


I even found this amazing Double Wedding Ring antique quilt with this 
unique prairie point type edging. 
 I am so regretting that I did not buy it, just so I could study this edge treatment!
  Limited funding now that we are a one income family though, so there's that. 
 Pictures will have to do.


Unique joining too.


Just a totally cool quilt.


 Oh, *finally* lunch time.  We set up our table and took out our lunch.  YUM.  
Healthy food and great company!


There was a tractor "pull" between some children and a steam engine.  So cute!


I especially got a kick out of the Amish kids participating.

It was a great day spent with a great man!  Have you ever gone to a tractor show?

Ah you went to Wauseon! Isn't that show amazing. The year I went they had the big huge steam tractors which were absolutely amazing.

Amazing quilt!! Send your pictures to Victoria (V Findlay Wolfe) who's the DWR guru these days. Maybe you'll come up to Petoskey when they have their tractor weekend??? Also, check out Bing today (the web browser Bing) to see the peacocks. I guess it's Bing.com. Happy 4th!!
