Stove cover box in our glamper trailer, the "Reiver's Rest" has been cleaned up, painted, glammed up with eyelet fabric and lace and fork handles and made into a much more attractive stove cover and flip it over and it becomes a serving tray!
CJ





P.S. The fabric and lace match the makeover I did on the frig in the trailer.

Now THAT is clever. I'm going to make one for my glamper. Especially loved the handles. CJ rules the roost when it comes to glamper decor!!!!!

I'd say Mary Jane. That is the neatest idea. I'm still hoping for a glamper. My husband is 80 years old an he isn't to keen on the idea.
I don't know if I could take on the project my self. Soooooooo I can still dream. LOL. You girls are the Beat. A farmgirl with dreams #1020

Juanita,
If I lived closer I'd offer to help you find a glamper and work on it with you! :D

That diaper tractor is really neat. My one daughter had a John Deere wedding theme. I smocked all the dresses with tractors and sunflowers. Took me 17 hours per dress. WE sat on hay bails and everything. Amazing all these themed events.

I have decided this is the year to "finish up" some projects in my sewing room that are just laying around. So, I am binding a quilt for my granddaughter, Zaeda, right now. Next step to take the left overs and make her dollie a little quilt too. After that, yep, another quilt needs to be finished. Just hope I can keep it up once Spring gets here and I head outside after work. Guess I could/should take a project outside with a cuppa tea and work on it after the chores are done!

Tammy, What a dream that is, needlework outside! We'll need maybe an extra 60 degrees to get to that point here. It will come eventually, won't it?
By the way. Zaeda is a beautiful name, is it a family name or does it have a special meaning?

Thanks CJ, that is so nice of you, they are so cute. I know where one is but never checked it out to see what kind of condition it is in.
I could probably do a lot of work myself, But with Charlie being sickly and in and out of the hospital I'm not sure. Thanks for the offer.

I'm getting ready to make aprons foe some Birthdays coming up. Are you still making aprons ? Farm sister #1020 Juanita

Hay there!! Mz Tammy, you have the right idea. I am trying to dedicate at least 2 hours a week sewing/finishing something. I have way to many things started and each has lots more to do in order to finish them. I listen to TV and sew or cut. I also am trying to read at least 30 minutes each night. I have so many great books in line and may never live long enough to read them all....same with my quilts. I just keep on plugging along. '
Hugs and prayers, Daizy.

Juanita,
Thanks! Actually there aren't many little trailers available around here . . . I've been on the hunt for quite a while! I found a jewel and I'm grateful! It's been a fun winter project! I'll be thinking of you and other farmgirl sisters! :)
Thanks again!

CeeJay, Debra and Marlyn your projects are all very lovely! Sounds like everyone has been busy and having fun.

I didn't exactly accomplish anything myself but I did get to spend some quality time teaching my 6 year old niece how to needle tat earlier this week. We worked on a simple butterfly....she was getting such a kick out of making boring stitches (double stitches) and pretty stitches (picots). She was so proud of herself!



Cheers! ~ Marilyn

This weekend I took this blah Pepto Bismol beige TV cabinet and gave it a Key West make over. Now it matches the stools at our back porch bar.

Mom was my inspiration. I remember when she refinished the dining room table.
