Am I Too Pooped To Post???!!!

NOPE!!! Just back from vacation number 1 and in the midst of getting ready to leave early in the morning and once again I am on the computer. I've got it bad. We had a wonderful time in San Clemente - weather was about 70 degrees and boy I soaked it all in. I even had to wear a sweatshirt one night-yipeeeeeeee!! All the years we've been camping we have met and been next to some pretty interesting people, but this trip is a first. We camped next to Tikidaddy (that's what his license plate said!) He pulled in,in an old van that had bamboo shades over the top part (I know I should have a picuture!)He then unloads 3 five foot tall tiki dudes that he puts out in front of his spot. Have to admit I've never seen that before. Just when we sit down for dinner we hear the sound of a power saw. Well, Tiki Daddy is carving tiki's right in his campsite! Amazing - again sorry but no picture, just imagine in your mind.

I really got a lot of sewing done. Here is a photo of sewing world inside the trailer- have I said I love our trailer? It's so cozy and such a great place to sew. Here I was working on a Lucky Star quilt for the quilt shop. It's out of 30's, reds and blacks -I'm really lovin these blocks!




This is outside sewing world! This is a wonderful quilt made by my friend Carol and I'm putting the binding on it. If only I had thought to turn around and take a picture of Tiki Daddy - I'm sure he was looking over my shoulder wondering what I was doing.


So this is a little glimpse of my week at the beach. John did get some good golfing in and maybe next week when we are at Morro Bay I'll tag along and take some pictures of him golfing. Next weekend technical support is coming home (aka my daughter!!) - this picture thing is still kind of slow for me so I'm hoping for some good coaching! Hope everyone has a great week and I will be checking in next Thursday!

Hi again, TIKIDADDY???? LMAO!!! And you got NO PHOTO???? If your gonna be a good blogger you must take pictures at all times. OK?? GOT IT???

Kim said...

Did you think to sew up a few shirts and skirts for the tikis? THAT would have made a great photo op! But of course we're glad you took a couple photos of sewing machines and quilts, because we've certainly NEVER seen anything like that before! LMAO!

Cheryl said...

Thanks Darlene - I can't wait to get back to all you bloggers!

Cheryl said...

I will check that out Marisa. I figured there must be a way to have
it translated.

Cheryl said...

I think Katie was very happy that you were helping me!! I'm not sure
she would have found that experience as funny as we did! I
couldn't believe I didn't take a
picture of Tikidaddy - it was totally hysterical!

Cheryl said...

I didn't think of sewing shrits for
the tiki's Kim. Actually I should have sewn a shirt for Tikidaddy -
he was topless!!

Doe said...

Tikidaddy might be there, too! This time take loads of pictures, ok? Enjoy your trip. Hope to see you soon.

Carol said...

Welcome back and have a great time on the next part of the trip. ENJOY!

Nan said...

I'm sorta glad you didn't take photos of TIKIDADDY - the pictures in my mind of him sawing away are pretty good - LOL!! I love your "sewing world" - I hope to have one of those myself someday. It looks so cozy, and I love the quilt you're working on! Wait! I think I have that pattern! Ooooooohhhh!! You got me thinkin' now!
Have a great time on your trip, Cheryl! You know we'll all miss you!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love this post of your quilting while camping. For years my mother has made dozens and dozens of quilts from her travel trailer since they were full time RVers. When our boys were little we'd go camping with them once a year, and my mom and I would work on at least one quilting project during the week. We took turns picking the project. By the end of the week we'd both leave with a flimsy completed. Great memories!
