Oh, no!!! I thought it was going to show how the tractor powered the hand crank. Was thinking as I watched how even older people are really, really up on new technologies -- the tractor, the camera, and .........

That was really great. Didn't know a gps would stop the tractor at the end of the row. I'm just a city girl!

LOL! My husband works for Dickey-john who manufactures some of the GPS systems for this type of work. I've always told him it was so ladies could do hand sewing while working. It never crossed my mind to use a hand crank.

i'll bet she's got supper in the oven or in the slow cooker and laundry going at the same time. Working the fields and quilting at the same time now that's multi-tasking in a whole other step.

I love quilting a lot, don't think I would be able to do that. I don't drive a tractor either. She is sure dedicated. Probably her only chance to sew during the growing season.
