1st Outing in Our New 'Home on Wheels...

Well we finally got to hit the trails and hit the trails we did! ..
We headed out Thursday afternoon over to Ponderosa Falls campgrounds and stayed there till Monday,,, we left just in time to beat the rains...
 I stashed some sewing projects...
 to keep me busy...
 and my sweet companion kept me company...
Now for the fun part,,, Hubby and I were walking Ginger and at the basketball court we decided to play a little game called "HORSE".. I made my 1st basket,, but then on the 2nd basket, the ball hit the ring and started to bounce out of bounds, so I,,, in sandals,,, ran to retrieve it,, only to trip and go head over teakettle and land on my shoulder and knees.... yep! major bruising, swelling and scabbing.. I look Marvalous for Mothers Day! haha!
 Speaking of Mothers Day,, the Campgound hosted a lovely Mother's Day Lasagna dinner and  cinnamon buns for breakfast.. which I am grateful, as I was pretty much in pain and discomfort from the fall.
 this is the last of the scabbing on my arm.. my hip, shoulder and knees have healed up except for some (still) swelling on my left knee... uugh, I think my basketball playing days (in sandals) are over!
 
Now we are in a weeks worth of rains, and it will probably be a few weeks before we head out camping again,,  Hubby prefers nice weather, and so do I...
Happy Trails!

Waiting to Hit the Trails...

Well, we are still waiting to hit the Trails... waiting on a few parts and items to arrive so we can head out... We want to be totally set up so we ordered an outside water filter and rail for the sewer hose,, plus we need to go and buy the "Legos" blocks to park the coach on as well as we need to get one of those 'camping rugs' that fold up into a square, to use a s a 'patio' to keep from dragging dirt into the coach.
But soon, very soon we will be Glamping in style!
Until then, we will continue to Chillax around the coach...
 come on over...
and sit a spell...

Took the Motorhome for Gas..

Well, we took the motorhome for gas... Gary drove it down to the gas station and I drove it back..
Oh my stars! it drives so easy,, I even backed it into the spot where we park it..
I suspect hubby and I will be arm wrestling to see who gets to drive.. heehee!

Working on a pillow for the Motorhome...
 I machine embroidery stitched the motorhome on a separate piece of fabric
which I will top stitch onto this 'Route 66' fabric and then it will become a deco pillow for the coach.
Hmmm, what else shall I craft up for the coach?

I can't be trusted in Camping World!

I can't be trusted in Camping World... I find way to much fun stuff!!!
 I still love my itty bitty Glamp trailers,,,, and can never have enough stuff to decorate them with!
Gotta love Flamingos Too!!!!
Camping World had cup, plates, towels even vintage trailer embroidered bed sheets...
I was able to (barely) control myself,,, but I couldn't leave with out a few things...
Happy Trails!!!

Big Playhouse on Wheels...

                           Welcome to Ginger's Pad.....
 
Well, the paper work on our new Big Playhouse on Wheels is complete...
But, hubby wanted to upgrade the suspension and steering column, and have the coach exterior waxed/sealed so we won't have any fading issues for the next 5 years..

So we won't bring "Ginger's Pad" home until around the 16th of April.
In the mean time, this will give me time to read up on how to use the microwave/convection oven.
I also bought a 'Instant Pot' to use on trips.. I know my sister and my daughter LOVE theirs for home and camping trips,, so I guess I need to too!
Here are a few photos of "Ginger's Pad"... I can hardly wait to decorate it!
  
 The cockpit... what you can't see in the photo is that above the Cockpit is a pull down bunk, which can also be used for additional storage...
 driver's side... with all the bells, whistles and buttons...
 'co-pilot' side...
 and I love that it has a work station, so I can craft, sew, cross stitch, make yoyos, etc., while hubby is driving. I can even work on my computer while on the road......
 nice 3 person sofa that pulls out into a double bed...
 the dinette which also can be converted into a bed....
the kitchen, with an over size stainless steel sink and faucet/pull down wand. But what I really like is that the wall behind the stove has tile to protect from splatters and that when you open the glass stove cover, it opens sideways to protect the sofa from splatters as well.
 On the left is the Fridge/freezer, and 2 sets of wardrobe closets and drawers on both sides...
 the bath room is a good layout and the tub is 36x36", which is a good decent size..
 the queen size bed also has storage & nooks as well as ports and plug recepticals .
The coach has a good amount a usable storage compared to some RV Coaches.
 
Our 2019 THOR AXIX 27.7 is about 28 1/2 feet long,,, oh and did I mention it has 3 TV's, Yeepers!
 1 in the bed room, one by the Dinette and one outside the coach,,, so Gary can watch his favorite Golf, basket ball and football games outside while I have fun inside the coach sewing and crafting.
 
Now to hit the road and make memories.....

Our New 'Playhouse' on wheels..

Well we did it,, after months of talking, researching and week ends of looking at Motorhomes...we found the perfect one that is perfect for us..
 we bought a Thor Axis Class-A (RUV)
 at 28 1/2 ft long, with 2 bump outs....
 it's not as wide as a standard Class-A, it is  a tad narrower...
 yet roomy enough with the bump outs in the open position.. and when the bump outs are closed, it is still easy to move around in.
even Ginger loves checking it out... now, were shall we go,,, the open road awaits us...
 
Don't worry, I still have my Serro Scotty trailer and the Aristocrat,, for my own girlie glamping week ends with my gal~pals.
Now,,, for Glamping season.....

Trailer Grins...

Trailer Grins... I have (almost) finished my wool craft trailer pillow,, all I need to do is buy a 12x12" pillow form and stitch up the fabric... I found this cool muted pillow-ticking fabric for the backing... and soon as I get back from California (visit my mom)... I will finish the deco pillow...
 More Trailer Grins.... I received a package today from a Maryjane FarmGirl friend,,,
 and look at all the goodies inside! Oh My Stars!
 I can hardly wait to work on the Trailer Applique and the Trailer Quilt... The sweet little ceramic trailer on the right side is actually a tiny trinket box..
 One more Crafty Trailer Grin.... I bought this little (red) travel mug, and went straight to work on
 personalizing it with some scraps of trailer  fabric.
 and Voila!!! my very own customized Trailer mug.
"Cowgirls go to Heaven... Glampers go everywhere else!...

Flamingo Table Runner..

OOPS!, I forgot to post a picture of the flamingo table runner I made  awhile back... Silly Me!
 I luv it!
 it turned out cute... and the white ball fringe was a last minute add.
I was short enough fabric for the back side,, but the polka piece was just perfect...
I can hardly wait to put it to use...

Bling for my Trailer..

With all the snow fall we are having... I decided to get crafting...
I made a couple of these last year as gifts.. and now I made one for myself..
it's blingy,,, but my camera is old and the photo did not turn out great...
Hmmm, maybe I need to search for a 1967 trailer... hmmm

Trailer Goodies for 2019

 I found this cute rose/pink (sorry, photo doesn't show well) and golf coffee carafe... I luv it! Fun 1960's find...
 My 2019 Trailer calendar and a cute drink cup.... 
 I stitched up this little wool project several months ago,,, I have way to many deco pillows for my trailer so I think I will frame this and make it a wall hanging... now to decide if I should use this 'ticking' fabric or burlap on it... decisions decisions.... 
 I found this cute foam trailer craft kit.... complete with Flamingo in the yard!
OK, I know "the Tiny House" is all the rage... but honestly,,, I would much rather have my lil trailers!
 
Happy Trails.... 2019

Just One More... Again!

Just One More,,, Again! hahaha...
 I found this cute little ceramic trailer the other day while out and about junktiquing...
I also found a much wanted Penguin ice bucket,, as well as a little kiddie ironing board which I plan to use as a little 'table' to set out by my lawn chair outside my trailer, to place my coffee/tea or wine glass on... heeheehee....
