Another week has passed by and here we are in August! The summer has zipped by in a flash so fast I can barely believe it! Children will be returning to school soon which means all of the school supplies are on sale.
One of those items is a set of colored pencils. And if you have a set of colored pencils, what better way to keep them all wrangled than a pencil roll?? My rolls are loosely based on a tutorial from 2015 by Ellen Russell Create in the Chaos.
As I sharpened some of the pencils from a leftover pencil box from our daughters' school days, I recalled the pencil boxes from my school days. You may remember them as well... they were similar to cigar boxes. Which turned my attention to the small box I mentioned last week. It has a magnetic closure and is the perfect size for a portable sewing box.
I pulled out a tiny
The box contains all I need, including the English paper pieced Fiona Sandwich Postcard block patterns that I have been using our Camping Journal Quilt.
I'll be adding a few more blocks to the quilt to record our recent trips in July. It will include a block for our trip to South Dakota to purchase the new camp trailer. Vicki from Vicki's Crafts and Quilts requested a tour of the unit. So here you go!
|View from the outside
|Standing just inside the door looking to the left (the rear of the trailer)
The freezer alone is larger than the fridge/freezer of the truck camper
|This "window seat" is one of my favorite features!
I think I will enjoy lots of quiet morning times in this location
|The sleeping area.
We will probably remove (or move) the door on the small closet area
to the left of the foot of the bed.
We turned the mattress so that one or the other of wouldn't have to crawl over the other
|The restroom (window seat to the left)
|A "coat closet" next to the door for easy access of a jacket as you go out
|The dining area
|The view from the window seat
|Shelby is quite content with her new camper and looks forward
to more camping trips with us
I hope that you enjoyed the tour. Thanks for asking Vicki! 😍
Last week Nancy at Grace & Peace Quilting brought the purple string blocks for her 2022 Rainbow Scrap Quilt to Sew & Tell. She has done a fabulous job with them!
❧ I'll be busy getting some writing done before we take off. There
will be should be a new Teatime with TT on Thursday. Have you been making your spool blocks? You have until August 17th to get them done and linked for the chance to win one of the amazing prize packages that Stephanie at Cornerstone Tea Company puts together.
I just placed an order and am taking advantage of 15% off my order by using the discount code that can be found over on the post. Go check out her store and do the same!
We have had a pleasant reprieve from the hot temperatures for the past week and it has been so welcome! I'm fairly certain that the heat will return for another stretch... Afterall, that is what August is all about!
That's all for now! But before you leave...
Tell me what the weather has been like where you live.
I'd love to hear from you.
