Another Day of This and That

Tried out the Juki quilting machine and let’s just say I’m not in love yet!  After having driven a Cadillac (my APQS longarm) it is hard to work with anything else.  I did load a Christmas wall hanging onto the Juki frame and quilted a couple of rows—nope, I’m not in love yet!

Packed up some items to return, printed off mailing labels, got some Christmas packages ready to mail and went into town late this afternoon.  Delivered my last two customer quilts.  Came home dodging deer all the way.

Michael did some getting ready to go stuff—he got the big Ford dually in the garage for the winter and packed some other things into the motorhome. 

The mattress in the motorhome belonged to Mike’s Mom and Dad—it was their guest bed and it was in our guest room until we put it in the motorhome to replace the original mattress (remember, this motorhome is a 1996!!).  It is a very firm mattress and even though I put one of those 3 inch dense foam pads from Costco on top, we both had trouble sleeping this summer.  When I attended that Private Quarters party a few weeks ago (very high end bedding) I drooled over their very expensive feather bed thinking I would like to put one on the motorhome bed to see if it would help.  Didn’t buy one of those expensive ones but got on and found a very reasonable featherbed.  The thing was delivered by the poor UPS man last week—it weighs a ton and today I struggled to get it into the motorhome and on the bed so it will fluff—it sure feels nice, hope it helps!

Emmi has this trait—she loves to dance around on her two back feet—she seems to be able to dance around for a long time before going back to all fours.  This morning she thought chewing on Dad’s glove as we walked was a good idea--Give me that glove

A week from today we hope to head to Billings, get Michael’s last two doctors appointments done with and travel on down the road. 


  1. Beautiful pictures! The time is coming close and I know you are so excited.

  2. the featherbed sounds like a great idea to make you bed more 'fluffy'..nothing like those high end hotels with the fancy bedding that makes us want to recreate it a home!

  3. I'm still trying to figure out how you managed to get that featherbed into your MH all by yourself!

    Emmi still seems to be enjoying the snow!

  4. That dodging deer thing is a popular sport here in Nebraska too. According to Game & Parks there were over 60,000 deer shot during rifle season. There seem to be plenty left though.

  5. Love that blanket of snow pic! K
