Tweeking The Camper

My Steve will be retiring soon and so we 
purchased a "new to us" 5th wheel . . .
we hope to do some camping.
The first thing that I did was remove the
wall paper boarder that was in this trailer. 

 As you can see it is a lime green
and not my style.

 In the kitchen I scrapped it off and
left it plain white (no boarder). 

This is the wallpaper boarder that I choose to
replace it.

 This is the dining table.

All that I did here is replace 
the wallpaper boarder.  

This was the living room area.

Here it is now.
I brought in a table from the house.
Purchased a lamp at Home Depot and stenciled the deer on it.
I gathered up some of my quilts
and made some throw pillows to match. 
You can also see the wallpaper boarder in the background.

 This accent wall is something
we did to give it a cabin feel.

Sorry for all the glare :(
These are not my best photos.

I've had this painting for years . . .
I absolutely love it here. 

By the door there was this space . . .

 Perfect for a TV . . .
Steve built the cabinet and now
if it rains or we are pooped out
in the evening
we can watch movies on the DVD.

Modern Camping :)

Perfect for old geezers like us:)

When I get my Tattered Pioneer Quilt finished, 
I'll show you the bedroom.

Well, that's what I've been doing . . .

Keep Smiling!

A Tattered Pioneer Quilt

I've started a new flannel & denim quilt.

It was inspired by this wonderful
quilt made by Kyle of
Timeless Reflections
if you have never visited her charming blog
you are in for a treat.
You can find her here:

This lady is an amazing quilter:)

I'm going to make mine with the 
"Quilt As You Go" method, 
like an old fashioned pot holder quilt.
It will be a queen size bedspread
for our 5th wheel camper.

I'm just getting started but I am adding
a little bit of denim along with
a canvas bag from a gag gift of 
"Fartless Chili" that Steve's sister 
glad him many years ago :)

Before I say good-bye . . .
look at my finger.
I cut it on the rotary cutter,
wrapped a piece of quilt batting around it
so that it wouldn't bleed on the quilt
that I was making . . .
stuck a straight pin in it to hold it
and kept right on sewing :)

That's determination, LOL.

Keep Smiling!

Heart Banner

Valentine's Day
is right around the corner . . .
so like everyone else I have had
 thoughts of hearts
dancing through my mind.

So I decided to make a new banner.

Have you had thoughts of hearts
dancing through your 
creative mind?

Keep Smiling!
