September flying by

Last weekend we towed our trailer down the Crest grade to our first trip camping in a very long time. When we were younger many years ago we would go camping and it was truly rugged. Sleeping in tents on the hard floor big bulky lanterns and of course roaring fires. There were trips to the desert at that time on three wheelers. That was before quads and those were fun times.Then there was the cab over camper days in Julian.We were young back then!
Another camping trip I remember was beautiful Yosemite.I always laugh when I think of Yosemite and my little daughter.The priceless look on Megan's face sitting in the back of our green Volkswagen van. The ranger informed us if a bear sees that cooler in our van he will break the window and get into our vehicle. Megan was little and her big blue eyes widened with shock.

                     Little Jack loved camping with us                               


The Friday we left for our first camping trip Violet finally produced a egg. I was so proud of her.
 This week I had the other chicken with a prolapsed uterus on her first attempt at birthing an egg.
I won't even go into the fun I had trying to be a vet. Anyhow she is doing well the egg passed and I am hoping it was a fluke.I am so thankful to the Internet for information on what to do.
My first tomato



I called the vets office and they don't handle chickens.The crisis is over now.She is perky and wanting to be with the other chickens but I am keeping her isolated to heal her bum and keep her from producing  another egg. What can I say I got to to know my chicken quite well.

Primitive Rug hooking at the San Diego Quilt Show

Rug Hooking 













First of all I have been so busy with getting our travel trailer ready for Labor Day.We had so much to do before we left for Santee Lakes.
Finally the trailer was stocked for Labor Day weekend.It was like stocking a little apartment.We had a great time unfortunately I couldn't be at two places at once so I missed the San Diego Quilt Show.

 Michele took pictures for me of the hooked rugs and I think they were enjoyed by all! Hopefully they will have another exhibit next year. I was able to post pictures from my iPad to Facebook. But unfortunately I am not sure how to post them from my iPad to my blog post.I will post more rugs this weekend with my first trip camping, Hugs Cheri
All my blogger friends I will get caught up with your lives this week I promise !







.                                                             and still more rugs

Primitive Rughooking special exhibit at the San Diego Quilt Show

Today I am watching as a backhoe is getting ready to widen our driveway for our new travel trailer.I can anxiously hear as a chain saw is getting started up for a dead eucalyptus stump removal.It's a big stump I sure hope they can do it.

Some of my plants can't be saved as Mark rips up the dirt and makes it all one level.So I am resigned to their fate.  I sit here blogging away glancing out my window with Maulie at my side napping away.Hubby is at work and I am waiting for the loud chaos to really begin.
Morris took off and is probably hiding out all day from the noise.I kept the chickens in their coop so they would feel safe.

                                                         







Last week was our rug hooking get together at Rosies. The ladies brought in the rugs that were going to be in the San Diego quilt show.
Here are some pictures of the rugs that were dropped off. There are some larger ones that were dropped off at another location but unfortunately I didn't get pictures of those yet.
I think this was a great idea to have this special exhibit of rug hooking at the San Diego quilt show. I wouldn't be surprised if we get new interest in rug hooking.










Here is the San Diego convention center













This is a wall quilt I am working on

Belated 4th of July pictures of the Crest Parade!

  Well here I am again! Hi gals I was so busy with cataract surgery two weeks apart in July between doctor visits for follow up, my eyes wonky I just had nothing to blog about.I couldn't resize my pictures since my eyes were messed up for close up computer work.










 So here are some belated 4th of July pictures of our Crest parade. It is a parade where anybody and nobody can participate. I also will be updating my blogger friends what I have been doing. Here goes..




  Now remember when I was talking about wanting a travel trailer about

six months ago. Hubby and I went back and forth about getting one. More and more I thought Jack and I needed a place to go where you do nothing and just smell the roses in our case smell the lake. There I was last month one eye 20 20 the other eye still wonky trying to look up information on trailers.I felt like a one eye cat. The research on what we needed how big a travel trailer we wanted and where we wanted to go camping was one thing on line. Not until you get in a travel trailer do you decide what you like and what you don't like.It is going to be local for awhile til we get more comfortable with pulling a trailer. Santee lakes is officially going to be our first trip!





So you guessed it we bought a travel trailer last Sunday! We did it ! It was a little nerve racking but I have no buyers remorse. We spent the last three weekends  of our life going to different travel trailer dealers. I am so glad that's over.Right now it's at the dealer getting prepped for us.
 I know Maulie is going to love going on trips. The chickens and Morris will be fine since our friend house sits at our home when were on vacation. I have wonderful images of bringing my quilting and my rug hooking along with me. This is so exciting a new chapter in our lives. Little jack is so excited every time he gets on the phone he wants to see it but we don't have it yet I keep telling him.




Now that was exciting enough but as some as you know from Facebook I have been asked along with five other rug hookers to have our rugs displayed at the San Diego Quilt Show!

It will be a special exhibit of hooked rugs for the very first time in San Diego. Quilters and hookers together at a show sounds good to me! The ladies that are having their rugs displayed are very talented.I am just amazed and happy I was asked.Wow!
This is where the quilt show will be held in San Diego at the Convention center













I also am working on a Cheri Payne quilt that I have added this and that to it's so darling. I want to get it done soon.  I will catch up blogger friends this week I promise! hugs cheri
I hope you enjoyed my July in August
