This is wonderful! Looks like Eastern WA, for sure! Thankfully, the wind was blowing in the right direction. LOL

So glad to see that sewists are still enjoying this video. Haven't been on this site lately. Too busy quilting. Will try to load some recent project photos at my place.

Ha ha!  I never thought to bring my sewing to the field with me- too dirty- and are fields are a lot smaller!  Maybe the difference between Western and Eastern Wa farming! I recently found a W & G and am only beginning to learn to use it.  Now I have a second reason to "encourage" my husband to spring for the auto steer guidance package for our John Deere 7930.  I'm still using the old fashioned GPS. . . .

Wow, this is fantastic. Though my mother was a farmers daughter and lived "on the farm" until she was 15, my idea of being on the farm is walking through the produce section of the local Windmill Farms (grocery store). And multi-tasking is chewing gum while machine quilting. My sister has grandma's treadle machine but this hand-crank is really something else. The Chain Stitcher/farmer is a genius!
