Nothing in, Nothing out this week! Lots of sewing going on, Serenity quilt is ready to bind, and the Irish chain has it's borders on. So I'm still pretty even on numbers, but some soon to be finishes will change that!
I was sidetracked by "life" and outside chores--flower bed tending, fertilizing and weedkilling (I hope I got a few!) and cleaning my camper. I spend a lot of time in my camper during the summer. I volunteer at the Lewis and Clark Visitor Center above Gavin's Point Dam by Yankton SD. I'm not too far from home, and drive back and forth quite often. Here is a picture of "home away from home" during one of my camping trips.
It is quite comfortable, and when I'm not volunteering (which I love) I spend time piecing, binding, reading, and maybe this year--bike riding. I have it cleaned, I am now down to the "packing" of things I try to take with me in the "first load". We'll try to take it down on Monday, it takes a bit of time to get it parked perfectly and leveled etc. Not like a weekend trip as we will have this parked for maybe the whole summer. That means lots of boards under tires, sewer line hooked up, water lines linked. The volunteers have a separate campground with large sites, it's very nice, AND QUIET!! I don't have wild neighbors--I have wildlife that strolls by! Last year a juvenile bald eagle was very insistent that the best place to beg the parents for food was ON TOP MY CAMPER! Sounded like a herd of elephants up there, and I would have to go out and yell at him (her?) to go sit in a nearby tree. Does with fawns graze right by us, the turkey hens slink past to their nests, and later bring out their newly hatched brood. Gophers and rabbits have no fear of me. And birds--we have lots of different species of birds!
