Sew & Tell - July 25, 2022

Hello!  Sometimes you just seem to be a day late and dollar short...   Ok, so I'm NOT a day late, but I am just short of being able to show you a finished project from over the weekend... and a few hours late. (In case you are wondering, I try to have the linky op open by 5 p.m MT on Sunday.)  Sometimes life just happens!

Upon our return from South Dakota for the purchase of a new-to-us fifth-wheel camper on Tuesday, I was up to my elbows in rubber gloves and sponges.

Every square inch of the camper has been wiped down and scrubbed clean... ceiling, walls, floor, cabinets (inside & out), stove, oven and bathroom.  The carpet has been vacuumed and shampooed. Dave has been working on some minor fixes (like the screen door that had the lower screen taped in on the bottom).

Once the cleaning was complete, I commenced with making some roman shades.  I will probably eventually get them made for all of the windows, but for now the most important window to get covered is the one in the sleeping area (right next to a window)...  The mini-blinds that were in it were bent and dirty and broken.  I need to protect any quilt that may grace our bed from unnecessary sun exposure and fading!  

The fabric was gifted to me several years ago... and there is lots & lots of it!  A perfect match for the 90s color scheme that is in the camper so WHY NOT USE IT?  Right?  The double flying geese that I fell in love with earlier this year will grace the bottom of the bedroom area shades, offering my personal touch to the blind... along with the quilting of pretty vines and leaves. 

So... there you have it!  This is all I have for Sew & Tell.  I'll be back on Tuesday with a to-do list and a more detailed shot of this blind... and, fingers crossed, the second one in the area.

Did you see that Brenda got a flimsy completed with the blocks from a BOM? 

Link up showing us your latest project... or leave a comment.  I'd love to hear from you! 

Keep Piecing!
