Congrats to Julie Agler for winning the glamping week Give-A-Way. Thanks for all of your great comments and enthusiasm about the whole week as well, it was super fun.
We were able to get away for a few days this week in the camper. It was a test run to Florida, we have never pulled a trailer before, never hooked anything up....you know, we needed to learn some basics. We ended up at a great RV/campground that had a lot of retirees. A lot of our neighbors had started out in a camper just like ours. They enjoyed seeing ours and some even took pictures to send to other family members. They had loads of great advice and I'm sure they got some good laughs from us not knowing how to work a sewer hose.
I have to say the awning is still may favorite part of the whole camper, followed by my favorite glamping accessories to make my morning mochas.
Yep, I have found a camping espresso maker and a frothed for my mochas. I can't imagine a month out west without my mocha this summer. I was going to bring my big machine but Nik found these alternatives that work pretty darn well.
While I was in Florida I got to have lunch with Caroline from Sew Can She, it was fun to catch up with a friend and talk sewing and quilting. She's got a fun looking retreat planned in October in Key West for the release of her book. I really want to go.
We arrived home on Thursday and I walked in to my studio. It was an absolute disaster from all of the chaos before we left. I couldn't stand to be in there so I took Friday and Saturday to clean and rearrange some things. It's looking much better now. While I was at it, I called a contractor to come look at options for a window. I'm not sure if it can be done, but I have my fingers crossed.
Now that the studio is clean, I am working on some new sewing patterns that will be out in May just in time for Quilt Market and I'm sewing up a new project for you that will be in my newsletter later this week.
Talk to you soon,
