Here is the picture of my leader/ender quilt that I talked about in a previous post. In other sewing related news a friend came over today and I helped her make a couple of dresses and several pairs of shorts for her daughter, son and nieces and nephews they all turned out so cute. I think I have convinced this friend that a serger is a required piece of equipment if you are going to be doing any garment sewing.
Thanks to Boon and Z Recommends we received a green boon bag earlier this week. Turns out the company is only about 20 miles from here so we got it pretty quickly. The Boon bag is very nice and soft and well constructed. Alex hasn't been using it as a bean bag chair much, but as a cool way to store stuffed animals it is great. One thing that I have found is that I don't have nearly as many stuffed animals as I thought, this thing really holds a lot! I am sure that we will get many years of use out of this item.

A little over a year ago we sold our old trailer because it was going to be way too small to use with two kids. The plan has always been to purchase another trailer with a little more space. We have been looking for several weeks now and couldn't find one that fit our needs (under 4000#, with bunk beds) and budget. Today we decided to go out looking and the first place that we stopped had exactly what we needed for exactly what we were wanting to pay for it. We weren't actually looking for a new one, but for the price we couldn't have bought a used one for that much. I look forward to a lot of fun camping trips. I just looked for a picture of our old trailer and couldn't find one, I'll be sure to take some of the new one.
