Getting the Job Done!…

So when my husband said that it was time to get the 5th Wheel all ready for travelling..do you think he had this in mind?P1070062

While he was outside doing his jobs, I quickly basted some batting onto a piece of black wool…then I traced this flower pattern onto some heat and bond…ironed it onto the wool…P1070061

     Cut out the pieces …  I had lots of help…shhhheesh..

P1070058    I am doing the flowers in red…I know the wool looks a bit orange but it’s really a lovely burgundy red colour.  And then I tacked all the little pieces down with little dots of Baste It Glue..


Whew…done!!  I put this project into the Ziploc ready to be stitched while travelling!!  My hope is that it will become a pillow for this month’s OPAM challenge.

P1070063    Hey, don’t look at us…WE did our jobs!!


Now I have got to do my REAL jobs!!

So we say goodbye to Desert Hot Springs…sigh…WE LOVE IT HERE!!  But we’ll be back next year!! 

Now it’s onto New Mexico before heading home…I hear they have lovely quilt shops in Albuquerque…;o)

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!


  1. Can' wait to see what New Mexico has to offer! I just found a town in Texas that we may actually settle on with our move. It's Seminole - 30 minutes from the New Mexico border! Woohoo!! Maybe next year, I can visit in person when you make your trek down south!

  2. Definitely....that's getting the job done. I like your kind of "work".

  3. I always get my bags and projects done first, for trips, that is the most important thing;) The wool looks red on my screen, nice wool choices. Can't wait to see photos of your travels.


  4. Bon voyage and a safe trip home, Paulette.

  5. I do believe your priorities are definitely in order. teehee!

    Happy trails to you, until we meet again; happy trails to you.....
    (OK, I'll stop now). Be safe!

  6. Have fun in New Mexico...It is gorgeous there!

  7. Love your woolie project, it'll be a wonderful travel project. Are you tired of "ssshhaakkkinnnn" in CA? Oh, and come see my giveaway!

  8. I'm so thankful you have your priorities straight!!! LOL

  9. Bon Voyage. I can't believe our (oops, I mean your) vacation in CA is over already! I'll miss your dispatches from all those incredible shops!

  10. Now see, I'd never get home, I'd be too busy stopping at all the quilt shops on the way! Your stitchery looks lovely, have a safe trip!

  11. Great looking project, and now we're off on another adventure!

  12. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who feels panicky if they don't have a "car project". Can't wait to see the finished product.

  13. Phew, so you got ready in time *LOL*
