What's on My Bulletin Board

Thought I'd show off what's on my bulletin board. It's there everyday to entice me - to get out into the wild in my own vintage trailer.

I have to admit that over the winter I haven't given this much thought. But now that winter has turned to spring and the days are getting warmer and sunnier I've been thinking about it more. Looking forward to the day I get my own vintage trailer and give it some bling.

I renewed my membership to the Sisters On The Fly again this year. I'm sister #1129. So far no trailer . . . it's still just a hope and a dream. We've got a tent at the moment, but it has been a while since we spent time camping in it. It takes awhile for it to warm up here in North Dakota.

You can see my 2009-2010 membership patch up there (purple with green trim). This year when she mailed the membership badge, Maurrie included the Naked Nymph patch, too. Ha! I haven't been out there skinny dipping anywhere . . . yet . . . ha! ha! Apparently there was a snafu and a misunderstanding with the person Maurrie, Sister #1, hired to make up the patches. She ended up with a thousand Naked Nymph patches and only 100 of the membership patches. So she decided to send them out to everyone who signed up. In her note she said, "...now everyone run outdoors and bathe in the all together and you will have earned your patch..." Chuckle, chuckle . . . yeah . . . right. I really cannot see that happening, but one never knows --{she smiles to herself at the thought}-- how outrageous!

Okay, yet another unfinished project is the small pillow idea that I started digitizing the Vintage Trailer Lover design as the embroidery design. I left off with that in the fall of 2009. As I recall I was going to improve the design a bit more by decreasing the number of stitches so it would stitch out faster. I'll have to look into that again and find out where I left off. Then I want to sew up some of those pillows. I hope to sell some on-line. I want to generate some cash-flow toward my vintage trailer dreams. I look at trailers on-line from time-to-time, but I'm not there yet - to go out to purchase one yet. Some of the sisters have painted their trailers and blinged them out nicely.
