I visited my life-long friend’s father one summer day at noon-time and took a photo of him hoeing the sandy Kansas soil. The red tractor was a great visual treat. The inset is of a sign he had at the produce stand by the road, under the trees, at the front of his house. “Help Self … Leave Money In Can.” The over-sized bird on the fence post is the Kansas state bird the meadowlark, which has a beautiful song that is heard especially at sunrise and sunset.You can hear the meadowlark song at the link below. Shown at the June 5 & 6, 2010 Perrysburg Fiber Arts show in Perrysburg, Ohio. I sent this QuiltToon™ to my friend for her August birthday in 2010. 28″ X 24″ – machine pieced and top-stitched. Machine and hand appliqued and embroidered. Face is painted. Completed 2010.
