…takes a lot of time and effort…yesterday I worked on packing clothes…not an easy task this year as I have lost a bit of weight..down a size or two!! (insert happy dance!) But it meant that I had to sort out the FAT capris from the NOT SO FAT capris…it took forever but I got ‘er done! Meantime our bedroom looked like bomb had gone off! Fingers crossed that when we get back from FOUR months of ‘snowbirding’ that I won’t need those FAT capris again!!
It’s always so easy for those pounds to creep on when you are in an RV…you know how it is..on holiday…going out for dinners…sitting around the campfire eating munchies…going out for lunch with the ‘girls’…OK I do that here but with other ‘girls’! :)
Today I will start on the cupboards in the RV…sorting and stocking up…NO munchies…and making lists…absolutely NO MUNCHIES go on that list!
Let’s change the topic…I’m getting hungry!! I have an almost finish topper..and this one kind of snuck up on me…
Do you remember how I went to that Quilter’s Estate Sale?…WELLL…let me refresh your memory…
Do these look familiar? I bought several bags of lovely little triangles and squares! Look how the quilter had marked the stitching lines to EVERY triangle and square!!
As I said, I bought several bags that LOOKED like triangles and most did but in one bag there were three completed blocks!! Dang sweet blocks and…
…the wee pieces to make MORE!! So I sorted them into trays and whenever I had a moment I would stitch together another block…and before I knew it…I had the making for a little topper!
Yesterday I sewed the rows together and put on the borders…DANG SWEET!
The plan is that I will machine quilt it after I sort out the RV, clean the house and wrap gifts! After FMQ, I REALLY want to do some big stitching in the borders… but that can wait for when we are in the RV.. in between eating all those munchies!
Forget the pounds, don’t you love it when the QUILTS sneak up on you like that?? Now THAT I can handle!
Thanks for stopping by…and happy stitching!!
