Hello everybody!  Good to be home ;0)

gosh I feel like I’ve been on a roller coaster since home. Started Me bday morning with a ride in an ambulance to hospital with what turned out to be a kidney stone. It really was very painful lol. Buttttt I left it at the hospital and was home in 4 hours or so. I was very lucky I had very little discomfort beforehand. 
my lil guy Sidney missed his Nana which made up for it. His new thing is he’s trying to sit up, he’s not even rolling over yet.  doc said watch out lol.

due to it all my suitcases are all that have made it unpacked. But I’m ok with that LOL

YIKES!!!!
a trunk full of donations came to me again!  Most of it is either- a) older, stiff and needs laundered. Or B) is going to the dog bed lady!

BUT, I open this heavy box to find this!  

 

why didn’t this get to me before retreat so that I could share this  - like that pink roll of stuff everybody got some from!

harump, I’m afraid now to open the last 3 or 4 boxes!  
you guys get back here and help me divide this up! 
oh my......I really don’t need more donation fabrics!

I'm also cleaning out my sewing space again.  I'm going to cut up my scraps with my Accuquilt.  Probably a lot of HSTs.  I can do a lot with them.  I'll sort them by color and then use them in the 3 t-shirt quilts that I'm making my brother's grown kids.  This is a new project that I'm allowing myself.  This brother has been gone a year.  Need to get going.

Right now, she is in a giant dog crate in the living room.

She probably thinks she's your inside dog.  Are you prepared to keep her in the house?  Are the other sheep accepting her when you take her out?

Well, I did get it all sorted!  3 boxes are going to Cindy for doggie beds!  One - I will ask the children’s clothes makers if they want it....but the last time I ask, they turned me down.

im keeping one basket of fabric that I sort again and launder to see if it is worth keeping.  There there is this!  

everyone who does charity need to roll themselves off a long, long length of each of these rolls!  Then I could deal with the rest.....lol!  These rolls are huge!  I can’t begin to guess how much is in these rolls!  Lol.....

Patti!  You need to come sew with me!

I do believe that Mr. Pirate & I are the last people to make it home safely .. which we did today, Thursday, 3/4.   We've been on the road for 1 day shy of 3 weeks.  It has absolutely confirmed to me that *I* am not going to be a full time RVer!  I don't like constantly traveling.  I like my brick and mortar home with all of my "stuff"!

I do like taking short forays hither and yon and the sheer convenience of our magnificent "tin tent"!  But extended trips?  Nope.  :-)

We did have a cute chuckle afforded to us in Phoenix after the Retreat.  We were boondocking at the Phoenix Elks Club.  We ended staying there for 2 days while our Jeep was looked at.  Also at the Elks Club was a Class A RV.  (A Class A is like a tour bus)  This Class A was also towing a flatbed with 2 ATVs, so this behemoth was Very Long.  Our travel trailer is only 17' long, which is Very Short for travel trailers.  Ours is VERY efficient and compact inside, too ... think of a streamlined studio apartment or a small Tiny House.  :-)

Well, the Class A  guy saw us outside one morning and wanders on over to have a chat with Mr. Pirate.  The Class A guy opens up with, "That's an *adorable* trailer!".   

Yes, indeed .. his word .. "adorable".   Heh, compared to his Class A, our trailer looks like an oversized puppy!   So, now, we are continually calling our trailer "adorable".   And we smile.  :-)
