Stitchin' & Sewin'

Hello Dear Friends & Followers: I hope all is well with you.

So I got a bit of sewing done this month and stitching done last month and this month on our camping trips.

First off, I designed & stitched two Chair Caddy's for our camp chairs.

They were made from Fat Quarters and have snaps to hold them in place.

They will hold a book or some stitchin' and a bottle of water
or whatever your drink of choice is.

Also got in a bit of small stitchin'

 A bookmark for the Hubs and three magnets, all my original designs.
The bookmark was stitched on 14ct. perforated paper and the magnets were stitched on 14ct. plastic canvas, all were stitched using DMC threads.

That's it for this post, I still have to put up posts of our last three camping trips, they were all at Cottonwood Creek Campground outside Lovell, Wyoming so I have A LOT of similar photos to sort out.

Until next post.....

Take Care & Have A Great Day
Hugs, Sandy

Some Things for the Vacation Home

Hello Dear Friends & Readers. I hope this finds you all well.

Back in March I placed an order on Amazon for some items for our Vacation Home (aka: the 5th wheel trailer) and totally forgot to post about the goodies even though I did take pictures.

I wanted to organize our dishes better and keep them from sliding around in the cupboard and also wanted to replace the Tupperware that Bretz RV included with our trailer, so I got these.

"Camco - Stack-a-Plate"

These work great and have a non-slip coating on the bottom to keep them from sliding around and you can also screw them in place if you need more security.
The large one hold's up to 10 1/4" plates and the smaller one holds the sandwich plates and bowls.

They hold our new dishes.
 
"Corelle Living Ware"
 It is guaranteed to be highly break and chip resistant and other campers and full-time RVer's have been using it for years with great results. 


 I added squares of the black non-slip shelf liner in between each one of the bowls for added safety. I also have squares of the shelf liner in between the cookware to keep them from scratching since they are the non-stick variety. I kept the Tupperware plates and bowls to use for lunches. Need to add a shelf above the dishes for more storage room.
 
Wanted to add more hanging space to our closet, so I bought these....
 
 
They turned our hanging area from this....
 

To this....




Our closet is a little short so some of the clothes bunch up on the bottom, but it's not that bad and nothing gets wrinkled. 
Of course there is no room for extra shoes on the bottom when the closet is fully loaded for camping season so I need to come up with a shoe rack of some sort now. Think I'll check out Pintrest for some do-it-yourself ideas.
Also need to buy a battery operated light bar to replace the puck light that doesn't put out near enough light in the closet.
 
All of these items cost me no money at all thanks to spending some time taking surveys and exchanging my points for Amazon gift cards. 

I found an older paper towel holder in our basement and need to get it put up so the paper towels aren't just sitting on the counter. I mostly use Pinecone, Lifepoints, and Swagbucks.

After a soak and a scrub in hot soapy water it looks just like new.

I also bought sheets for the bed and modified them to fit better, but that is a post for another day.

Take Care Everyone
Hugs, Sandy

TUSAL Update for April

I'm late once again with my TUSAL update, oh well, so goes life.
I'm still working on getting more of my "for sale" item's together and getting pic's taken.

Once again there are no floss ORT's just sewing threads and fabrics.
Been to busy sewing and fabric crafting to stitch.


Here are all of the ORT's that I have collected over the years.
They are going to be thrown away since I have no real reason to keep them and they are using up a perfectly good half gallon jar.


I will not put these out for our feathered friends, since I have seen a bird hanging dead from a nest by a piece of string and one caught up on a branch that was unable to fly away, it also had died. So better to be safe and let them find dried naturals and not risk their lives. Just my opinion.

Slowly Adding Things

Hello Everyone, Hope you are all doing well.

I've been slowly going through my craft room to find things I know I will never use, stitch, sew, etc. and adding them to my "For Sale" tabs.

I've added to the RV & Tent Organizers, Smalls, and Photo Albums tabs.
If your interested or curious have a peek. There are also some of my Organizers and Photo Albums on my hubs blog CampingBastards.com

Next will be some needlework charts that I have, some I've stitched and will never stitch again, others I looked at and thought why the heck did I get that.

Check back weekly to see what other items I add.

Take Care Everyone
Hugs, Sandy
