Hello Again!

Hello my friends!  It's been a few days has it not? Well... here's what has been going on at the Vintage Trailer homestead.

This past weekend the wind wouldn't stop and it was freezing, so how unfortunate, I couldn't weed! Ah...let's cry a tear. Instead I fled to my sewing machine and started making apples! These are for my Debbie Mum Sampler that the Queen Mum and I are both making. I like them so well I think I'm going to make a whole quilt of apples - envision simple red and white with green leaves and brown stems. What do you think? I think I love apples! Here's the pattern - start baking! 
I also decided I need to stop simply pinning to pin and actually make something from all that Pinterest inspiration. I wish it was one of the delicious recipes.. as do the starving males at my house. It was a recipe - almost. A recipe from the Happy Zombie for Manzanita Stars! I just love these and they go with any kind of fabric you can imagine. The Boss Lady needs a new quilt to keep us toasty in the early morning mountain air.  Here's my first block...
I'm going to separate them with chocolate brown sashing and cover the back with cow print minkie.  I can't wait!  Many more to sew, but a great stash buster and quick to make.  I'm also thinking a big Texas Concho would look really cute in the middle of that star... 

This weekend is Boss Lady time!  She's getting a bath, along with an inside spring clean, dusting and a few fresh flowers just in time for the big calf working at the ranch.  
Roll out...Let's go camping, and apple baking, and star much to do!
