“Red” has been operating her tire shop for about two years. (She’s quick to add that the shop is also owned by her husband.) About two years ago, when I first became aware of her shop, it was located at a less desirable location, as far as traffic passing by. During the last year, my husband and I noticed she had moved to a heavily trafficked area in a better building. One early morning, my husband saw “Red” driving a big truck loaded down with tires — we admire this spirit of entrepreneurship and all hard work it takes. She allowed me to take photographs and is a very sweet, soft-spoken person who says the success she is having is not because of her — she gives God credit.
This QuiltToons™ is 10″X 8″, machine pieced and top-stitched. The photographs I took (shop, “Red” and flag) were printed on material and assembled with machine stitches and glue. It will be framed.
