That’s right the motorhome is on the road and Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses is traveling with us. I think this quilt just adds a special touch to the camper. It is too small for my bed at home, this bed in the camper is larger than a full, but smaller than a queen so it fits it fine.
Shades will be drawn when harsh sunlight comes in the windows – quilters don’t worry about colors fading I always have the blinds down when the sun is bright! (helps keep the place cooler too )
Yesterday – of course the heat came back for us – our first day of travel was up to 90 degrees at least and took forever for the camper to cool off after we set up camp. It will be hot for several days to come. I was so glad that I had prepared our evening meal on Saturday and put it in the refrigerator fully cooked – I love an easy first day! Who wants to cook after sitting for hours – well not hours we do stop every 1 1/2 to 2 hours and get out and take a walk – have to move around – sitting for hours on end is a good way to develop blood clots you know. We rarely do more than a six hour day on the road – short days give you more time to relax!
This is the view from our campsite out the door – isn’t that pretty we are at a Corp of Engineer part called Osage Campground by the Kaw Lake. That is a steep rocky drop down to the water so we did not attempt it, a lot of loose gravel – who wants a mishap on the first day right!
This side was shady and by evening it was a little better outside – temperature was dropping and in the shade it wasn’t bad.
A close up of what was across the lake from us on the little inlet area we are at.
We took a walk around a good part of the campground in the evening when it was cooling off – still hot but not so bad – caught a pretty sunset!
I am trying to stick to my normal schedule of writing in the evening and scheduling the post for the next morning so this post was written on our first day of travel – Sunday and posted this morning.
We are taking off first thing this morning (Monday) and heading to Kansas – a short drive today as there is a historic sight to tour even if it is hot. Reservation at a small private campground for Monday night in that general area so a short sight seeing day –
Our younger daughter Jessica is traveling also and she and our granddaughter are in NYC for a week. Look what she took with her – here is a picnic quilt I gave her last year – one of my first attempts at machine quilting they folded it up and put it in their bag so they could do a picnic at Central Park! Another traveling quilt. That is our granddaughter smiling pretty. I have a feeling there will be more than one picnic there this week – they love the park.
Work on the Tumblers has started I will show that tomorrow.
