A Little of This and A Little of That

That's what's going on at my house.

A little of . . .

getting ready to take the 5th wheel (rv) out for the first time this year. So I spent Sunday afternoon cleaning it from top to bottom. I'm not sure why but every year during the cold months, the 5th wheel is taken over by ladybugs. They get in through tiny holes and you would be vacuuming everyday or two to keep them all out. We have friends that live in this same town and they have the same problem. So I just let it go until we get ready to use it in the spring and sweep them all out at once. If anyone knows how to get rid of them, let me know. I also bring all of the dishes in the house and run them through the dishwasher.

A little bit . . .

of applique on my first "Be Attitudes" block. Progress so far.  I'm ready to do the letters.

A little of . . .

getting a second project ready to take with me this weekend. A quick bluework embroidery pillow. Pictures of that when we get back on Sunday. (If I work on it.)

A little of . . .

picking up the house so it doesn't look a mess when I get back home. Okay Craig, I am counting on you to put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher while I am gone. Actually neither of my children will be home much this weekend (working) so there shouldn't be much of a problem.

Now I'm going to do a little of  . . .

picking out clothes to take with me (chilly spell here so I have to pack warm and cool clothes because I am a wimp and always cold)

finding some DVD's and VCR tapes to take with me (it is supposed to rain). Gone with the Wind and Scarlett will last me a good 6-8 hours

picking out some books to take (and my kindle) Becca gave me a James Patterson book to read that is supposed to be real good (Witch and Wizard)

making a note to buy a couple new quilting magazines to read as I relax around the campfire.

What a life!!!!

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. have fun! I don't know what to do about the lady bugs in the camper - for us they try to take over our mailbox! At this time of year I am cleaning out the mailbox every couple days as they are all over in it.

  2. That sounds like so much fun! Watching movies and stitching---my turn will come. :) Have a great time! I may have to get that Be Attitudes book out and just look at it. lol I like the colors on this block.

  3. Yep we get the ladybug invasion in our camper too. At least we're not living in it now... before they'd invade and you'd wake up with one crawling across your nose, ugh!

    I'm loving your block, sure makes me want to do some applique!

  4. Vivian,

    Your block is cute! Using a black buttonhole stitch makes the perfect touch.

  5. Oooh! Where are you taking the RV? Ladybugs are such a pest! When we moved ours from the house to Camp Macoba, they were evidently in the slides. When we pulled the slides in, there were MILLIONS of the stinkers (and they do stink) inside the RV! I still see the occasional ladybug looking for a way out!

    Have a BLAST!!!! :)

  6. This is so adorable...glad to hear you had a great weekend camping too..blessings
