The deadline is near.....

We leave Thursday morning for our first camp out in The new and improved Tumbleweed! (our vintage trailer)We worked long and hard today with the little ones under our feet and got a whole lot done.....
I painted a little wrangler on the side of the trailer....








Added some horse hide spots on the top of the trailer to match.














Don and I got all our yard work done...Andrew and I weeded and fertilized the garden and Grandpa mowed and did the weed eater thingie....
I washed a couple of quilts and hung them on the line.....(I love pictures of quilts hanging on a clothesline, it makes me happy!)













I also put the recovered couch into the trailer...yes, it was a beast, but I got it done! I made more cowgirl pillows and two chenille pillow shams...







In between these things, I gave hugs, changed diapers, made lunch and dinner and cleaned the house.....Tomorrow, believe it or not, the pace will be more frantic but mama has the day off so we have no little kidlets running around......

The big trailer reveal, inside and out will be after our camp out. I am sure I am not going to have time until then...Then I can go back to things like sewing aprons and quilting.......YeeHaw! Y'all come back now, ya hear....

Your pace is so hectic. I thought I worked fast and packed a lot into a day, but you put me to shame! You will need a huge rest after all you've accomplished this week.

I look forward to the big reveal.

So is you day longer than 24 hours? Do you have some kind of time machine? Your painting came out great! Now you toes... that's another matter.

Oh how cool!!! Looks fabulous so far! I love your quilts and I agree, I love quilts on a clothesline, unfortunately in our neighborhood I think we have an ordinance against clotheslines, but I've often thought of breaking that rule...
