When it Rains it Pours…

and it has indeed been raining…a lot!  And the winds….just something awful.  I had to cover the trailer (Ms. Daisy) as it has a little leak in one corner, that I haven’t had the time to fix.  She is nearly ready to hit the road.  I found another fridge the same size (new) and will get that in this weekend.  So yesterday I started on some pillows.

And in the background is the quilt I made for Trailer Trash (1959 Aljo), saved for Ms. Daisy (the Aljo died in a freak wind).

And I got this embroidered linen from Mary Jane’s Farm Fair, a couple years back and have been saving it for my vintage trailer…perfect!  I loved it and for those of you who might know, Farmgirl Frannie made this. 

Gee, the sun came out, what a surprise!  Even though it is cold out there, I still have lots of little things to do…be back soon with more from Ms. Daisy.
