Yes, my first campground has been found. I need a place to stay for one month after I pick up the RV. It had to be convenient to my family so they could outfit it, etc. if I was on assignment. It is the Mountain Creek Campground and the price is right for a month.
As far as what projects I am working on for the RV, I am working on the floorcloth for the living room area. So far, I have painted the background and my daughter is suppose to carve some stamps for me. This is what I have so far, look in the background at the hand felted pillows that will be on the sofa.
I made my reservation for a campsite for Fiber College at Searsport Ocean Campground for Sept 3 to Sept 10. afterwards I will start heading south. Fiber College is from the 5th to the 8th. I have several people that I want to see along the way so it will be sometime in October before I get to the campground in Florida.
Today my rolling tote for my new serger arrived. I was not getting a case at first but I know that I am going to want to take classes. This case folds flat which was a plus. But it fits the serger and supplies nicely.
Flooring samples finally arrived for the RV. My daughter and I took the samples to Home Depot and layed them by cherry cabinets. We agreed on the Pearwood . Now they just have to order it, get it installed and then they can lay the walls and get the build underway. I also received a call from Karen at NexusRV and found out I will have to get a bigger generator since I have asked for 50 amp service. This is $1400 more. There goes me upgrading my sewing/embroidery machine.
We went to the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore at the Convention Center on Friday. The goal was to look for inspiration on things I could make for the RV or even buy if the price was right. Just think, no purses, jewelry, or clothes..........this would be a first. Well, I almost got out of there without buying clothing. I have been admiring these collars made from ties for a few shows. I broke down and brought me and my daughter one. These are not ours because I was too lazy to take a picture, but you should get the idea. Then I brought a mobile to use over my bed instead of a chandelier. This one is a large wire flower and hummingbird. I also brought a cutting board in the shape of a painters palette and a wall sconce that has a little shelf that I plan to have hanging by the door for my keys. This gentlemen is going to send me pictures of the last thing I wanted so I can decide. He takes books and turns them into shelves or clocks. He is going to send me pictures of some weaving books he has that he can make into a clock for me with a hidden compartment.
At one booth, the vendor had beaded his motorcycle..I wonder if they still ride it.
Today, I went to the R V Women winter luncheon in Thurmont, MD., at the Cozy. The food was plentiful but average, Lots of laughing and talking about their RV's. Had a great time and looking forward to the May rally.
Next week I go to the yearly Section Meeting with the company I work for. I had to postpone Jury Duty because I would be in Florida. Stay tuned for a report.
