This was posted in September as I was redecorating my back porch. I made a new coat hanger with old driftwood from the Spokane River and used some old door knobs for the hangers. You can see this post at http://cheneybaglady.blogspot.com/2010/09/farmgirls-of-heart.html
Some new paint and some vintage, start to make this porch a new addition to the interior!
When I found this at the thrift store, I had to refurbish it and give it to Grayson (grandson age 1-1/2) and guess what? He loves it! Whenever I come to visit, he rushes over to show me he knows who gave it to him!
This was the Men’s Wear Quilt I made last January for my nephew. He was moving into his first home and had no real furniture….he got a little comfort and warmth.
And then there was this….Trailer Trash got trashed by the wind! Did I cause this with the silly name I chose? Probably not, but with mixed feelings, the remodel of my 1959 Aljo, came to a screeching halt! It has been a difficult process, as the more I got into it the more dry rot I found, the more dismantle I did. And since I don’t have a ‘girl cave’, she was totally exposed to the elements. A freak wind in the middle of July ripped her open like a can opener. No wonder they call these tin cans!
But good things come to those who wait! I was very reluctant to get another trailer but I got an email from my sweet MJ Farmgirl sister, Grace (katmom), and she convinced me to take a look at this 1969 Shasta 1400, over in Post Falls, Idaho. I was smitten with her right away, she was road ready, wider, roomier and even had a bathroom! It was October and the weather got nasty, right away. So this baby (Driving Ms Daisy, aka Ms Daisy, for short) is waiting for mama to spiff her up, in the Spring. I want her all dressed up for many road trips, the first being in May, to Prosser, WA, to meet up with other Farmgirls and possibly some Sisters on the Fly.
This is my Trailer Trash quilt, it is waiting for it’s binding, upstairs in my sewing room, as we speak. I got it back from the quilter ,right after Trailer Trash died, so I didn’t have a lot of incentive to finish it. However, I now have Ms. Daisy and I am going to use a similar color scheme, so she will get some use out there.
