Happy Camper

Happy Camper:
a person who is pleased with the situation in which s/he finds him/herself. Often used ironically or in understatement, especially in the negative; as, the passengers left behind on the island were not a bunch of happy campers.


Barefoot in the summer...

I am a happy camper!

Sloppy and Marvin leaving a mess on the front lawn...

I am not a happy camper!

Some new purchases from the sewing expo..

new thread,



some great purse handles and a pattern from Quilt Plus (I have been looking for these kind of handles since I saw this post)...



new fabric... black and white, polka dots and a little FQ from Corning Stitchworks (I wish she would open an online shop!)



and some vintage trim (I couldn't pass up on the polka dots!) and a vintage buckle from Corning Stitchworks too.

I am a happy camper!

Sloppy Sister's room....

I am definitely not a happy camper! What am I gonna do with her?

Sloppy asked me to post this photo...
Today, she had an eye exam which required dilation of her pupils. She couldn't see how big her pupils had gotten so I took a photo! She was not an unhappy camper - just a little inconvenienced.

But then, I took Sloppy and Marvin shopping at a craft supplies store...

a knitting machine for Sloppy..
and a model helicopter for Marvin....


with many pieces...
They are happy campers!!!! ( We will see how many times I get asked to help out...)

And we also stopped by the shop to pick up Bernie....

For $81 (ARGH...not a happy camper!), you can get an updated feed dog kit installed, feed dog reset, and something illegible...
Move over Fifi.... Bernie is back!
I am a happy camper!!!!! I have plenty of projects waiting to be finished, quilted, etc.


Hope you have a happy camper kind of day!
