Cough cough sneeze sneeze…. that is my life right now. Yep, that darn sinus bug that is going around got me. Coughing and sneezing make it very difficult to shoot a video so I will have to give a ‘pass’ on a Tuesday Tip video today. I am, however, snuggled up with my new quilt. I wanted to show it off because it’s SO cool!
I have the BEST sister and Mom EVER!!!! They created this quilt for me for Christmas and I can’t even put into words how excited I was when I opened it! First of all, I have an obsession with Shasta campers. I just think they are the cutest thing. My Mom and sister have been working on this quilt since July. Each camper represents either a holiday or something about me – flamingos, theatre, OU Sooners, music, dogs, Disney, candy, and even my favorite color Tiffany Blue. It’s absolutely gorgeous in person. It’s the perfect length (you know what I’m talking about – throw blankets are NEVER long enough to cover your feet). I know how much work went into this quilt and it is just SO special that I just had to share it with you. Don’t you just LOVE it?

Love the quilt! Have you considered getting connected with a Vintage Camping group? We attended rallies with our 1972 Avion Motivator. When we were no longer able to pour money into itS upkeep and sold it, we couldn’t camp at rallies but still are in FB groups and could visit rallies with Open Houses to view all of the cool campers. Every Vintage camper has a story!
Rest and keep drinking those hot beverages!
Oh that is just so lovely and what a special gift to have.
My Mother made me a patchwork bedspread when I was 16,at the time I thought it was the worst present ever….but oh how I think now it is just the best thing a Mother could give as each square is from clothes I had..bridesmaid dress etc…it’s now a bedspread of memories and priceless as is yours Connie.
Yeah, we’re not the smartest when we’re 16 years old, are we. The quilt sounds SO special!
Connie, Did you Mom and Sister put all the camper pieces together? It is so neat, looks like
they are very experienced!!!! This throw is bound to make you get well faster!!!
Yes, can you believe it? All those pieces were put together with different fabric.
Feel better fast! Your quilt is so special!
Feel better, Connie. And OMG! I love your quilt!!! What a special gift. It is so cute, and of course the workmanship is amazing, but best of all it carries all that love from your mom and sis everytime you cover up. Hope it speeds your recovery ?

What a lovely gift, it must be so precious to you. I used to make quilts but nothing like this, just amazing. Hope you feel better soon.
WOW…love the quilt! It makes me want to get back into quilting myself, although I’d be hard pressed to do such a beautiful quilt after so many years away from quilting! Get better soon, colds are miserable!
I’m so sorry you are sick! The quilt is beautiful!!

Please get well soon! You deserve rest and time to rejuvenate…we’ll wait…and stamp?
Dear Connie: I’m so very sorry you’re sick, this darn bug is indeed making it’s rounds, I just got over it, it took about 17 days, ughhh!! I still have that nagging tickle in my chest but the stuffiness, the coughing, the chest congestion are gone, thank God!!
Just rest my dear and let this thing run it’s course, taking cough medicine helps, especially at night so you can sleep. Take it easy and cuddle up under that gorgeous quilt which I’m sure will help you recover quickly since it was made with tons of love.
Thank you for the link to your Tuesday’s tips, I don’t often have the chance to check out your posts and most times I do it at night before I go to sleep.
I’m sending prayers for a quick and complete recovery.
I’m so sorry, Connie, that you are not well. I hope it passes quickly and you’re back to your normal busy life soon. The quilt is gorgeous and so perfect for you. Your mother and sister were so creative in making it with all things special to you. It is priceless. Get well soon. You don’t have time to be sick. None of us do.
Been there, done that! Feel better soon
Feel better soon. Thanks for all that you do and share!
So sorry to hear you are under the weather. I am wishing you a speedy recovery. You have to take care of you first and the rest of us will adjust. Love your quilt. Hugs…..
Hope you start feeling better!
You are such an inspiration!
Keep warm with your Awesome Quilt! It’s adorable…never seen one like this!
You’re very lucky! And have great family to do for you! Enjoy!! 🙂
