Thriftin’ Time Tuesdays

This may seem like an odd Thriftin’ Time post but I needed to get a UFO done and since I am doing it myself…I am being Thrifty!  Am I bad?

      pillow 003 

I made another pillow for ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ my 1969 Shasta trailer.

     pillow 004 

One side has a ruffled round circle. 

        pillow 008 

I cut out a medallion, used a little interfacing on the back and glued rick rack around the edge. 

       pillow 016 

Instant pillow.  That’s another UFO under the pillow.  My quilt need to be bound…yes, that is all I need to do to finish it but it’s been sitting on my ironing board for at least a year!

Glamping time is not that far away….I had better get busy!


Come and check out the parties….

  8. the trailer is adorable I never thought I would want one but if I had one that looked like that it might change my mind

    What do you do with your dog when you go? They don't allow dogs do they? There's no chapter close by here and I have no trailer but for me I could probably use my Tahoe as they have screens you can get for the windows. But alas....no one even close around here. I'll have to live vicariously through your adventures in Glamping!
