The Mobile Cottage

Things have been quiet on the quilting front around here.  Between Graduations and weddings, my sweet hubby and I also bought a travel trailer.  Yep, the Happy Cottage is about to become mobile.

We traveled all the way to the great state of Texas to pick up our new (to us) second home.


It was a long trip, but was well worth it.  Because this is what followed us home.






She's not new, but has been very well cared for.  We did a bit of cleaning yesterday, so I took a few pictures.

The entry and living area.


Kitchen and dinette.


Nice full bathroom.


Bedroom is in the rear with a very large closet behind the mirrored door on the left.

We've never had a travel trailer before, so this will be a new adventure for us.  I've been trying to decide how to add color into the beige background.  I'm sure there will be a quilt in the making!

Happy Quilting.

My sister would be drooling over this post as she wants an Airstream in the worst way. ;-) Can't wait to see the quilt you make for your travel trailer.
