Sweet Cabin, Dream Cabin!

My heart is full.

Our offer has been accepted on the cabin in the mountains ---

We have worked so very hard for so very long to make this happen. It’s been a lot of sacrificed hours to make this dream come true!

The sellers are very eager to close quickly and would like to close by the end of June.

This is going to happen quickly! 

I should be spending the 4th of July holiday in my new cabin, spending time with my family and quilting away in between!

cabin 033

The rockers are on the upper porch ---

The double doors you see on the bottom open from the sewing area to a view of the blue ridge  mountains and the parkway:

cabin 009

The same double doors are also on the upper deck level, where I stood to take this photo.  That fence....will be mine!

It is coming mostly furnished!  ((Yes, porch rockers included!!))

The only thing I will need is a toothbrush – and a sewing machine!

And some girlfriends to sew with.

Any takers?!

Be sure to like our Quiltville Friends Page on Facebook for more fun!

It looks like a dream come true. Best wishes on your new adventure!

Sandie said...

Congratulations!!! I'm sure there are many others who would be happy to keep you company at the "cabin". But if they are busy, I would be happy to join you!

Carla A Few Of My Favorite Things said...

Wow! Beautiful views and cabin! Congratulations and hope all goes well with your closing.

Dora, the Quilter said...

Congratulations! Sounds like a wonderful place to be--and room for quilting friends would make it really heavenly!

Design Originals by KC said...

I would love to come to a quilt get away! How awesome for you! Congrats and thanks for sharing pics with us of your new home and new fence! :) Kathi

Amy said...

Oh, wow! That is fabulous. That is just what I've been dreaming of. You will be very happy there sewing away. I'd love to sew with you!

Amy

Colleen said...

Any time! Ill bring a cutting mat!

Lee said...

Awesome! I'm sure you're finding it hard to contain your excitement, I know it would be that way for me :) Love the color on those rockers! Praying all your plans go smoothly between now and the "keys in hand".

Terri in BC said...

I would love to join you! I've never been to the East Coast of the USA, and love mountains - what better place to start!

Judy D in WA said...

Congratulations! What a peaceful surrounding you have. Enjoy!!

marie said...

I am so happy for you. It's a beautiful area. Take more photos when you have keys in hand.

Mimi said...

It too, am very happy for you. You work so hard and now there is a place to rest easy away from it "all". The best thing seems to be the rockers that come with the deal! Ready to rock.

Lakegaldonna said...

Wow, you two did it! Congrats to you both. It does look roomy enough for a few folks to be sewing together. I would love to join you sometime. We have the two houses also. Remember I told you I had to mark my rotary cutters North and one South? Ha ha, the duplication of household items and more importantly SEWING items as you go back and forth. Hopefully you get to spend many days there and not just for retreats. You need some Bonnie and DH time, (with sewing of course!). Wow, wow, wow.

cityquilter grace said...

my suitcase is packed....but only for a visit. my guess is you might want to keep the locale a secret or else you won't have ROOM for family at all...LOL

Bonniedoo said...

Congratulations!!!!!
Enjoy!!!!!!

GeeMa said...

Looks wonderful. I could be there in 5 hours. Just let me know when.

Marsha said...

Your cabin is gorgeous! I would love to come sew with you but Albuquerque is a bit of a commute! I'm happy you found such a beautiful place and you will get to move in right away. That is so pretty, I think I would live up there the whole summer and go home in the late fall! Enjoy Bonnie!

Judymc said...

I am so happy for you!!! This place is awesome!!! Now you won't have to *release* any of those sweet machines you *catch*--you'll have plenty of room for more! I would love to sit in one of those rockers and hand quilt or hand stitch a binding with you!

Joey said...

Hey Bonnie, Congrats to you & yours. I would come sew with you, I could bring a feather weight table on my journey!.. Joey

Linda DeVona said...

Julie said...

Yay for you! Send me the address and I will be there to keep you company. LOL

Freda said...

Congratulations Bonnie, the house is gorgeous. I am glad your dreams came true.

Woodie Woods said...

What a wonderful cabin for you and your family. Having quilting friends join you is just icing on the cake. I was born in WV in the Appalachian Mountains. Ileft WV after college and have lived all over these United States.I now live in the beautiful state of Washington with mountains and ocean. I've been in Boone and have a cousin in West Jefferson. I was married at the Marine Base at Cherry Point, NC and my son was born there. Let's see, it'll take me five days to drive to NC. Bonnie, I am so happy, happy, happy for y'all.

Myrna said...

Congratulations Bonnie! It's beautiful...looking forward to more photos and a quilt cam ala cabin! Enjoy your time there.

Congratulations, Bonnie. What a serene, peaceful looking setting. I hope you're able to enjoy it for many, many years to come.

Tammy Stack said...

You say...a sewing machine...
Only one? (Hee hee hee)

Graciela M said...

che bello ! complimenti !

Mary Ellen said...

Me, me, me (to quote Pat O). Be careful what you wish for. You will be filled to the rafters with eager quilters. I am so happy for you. You and your husband deserve this. I hope you can do quilt cam at least one time from the "cabin."

terriquilts said...

*Squeal* of delight! So happy for you! I'll pack my bag and featherweight and be there whenever you're ready for me! :)

Sandra Henderson said...

So very happy for you Bonnie. You sure do deserve it. Praise God!~~ Oh, a fireplace too!!!~
You are living my dream.... good for you. So very happy.... :)

Sally simplestitches said...

Congratulations!!!!!!! What a wonderful place to spend time with family and sewing buddies! What a place to make memories! Anytime you are in need of a sewing buddy I can certainly make a trip! You deserve a beautiful place to spend down time because you my dear are a beautiful lady. All that you do for others, most of it you probably don't even know about. Enjoy enjoy enjoy and know that there are many many many of us sewing right along with you on that porch with that view!!

Ramona Johnson said...

Congratulations! Sewing Machine Will Travel. Just set the date!!

Chatty Kathy said...

Congratulations, Bonnie. It's time for you and your DH to have a "go to" place where you can chill, enjoy, and find your next tempo in life. We retired 17 years ago, and we are just now finding out how to enjoy it without working so hard, being retired.

Sue's Stitchin' said...

Congrats - you've earned it. Glad the rockers are staying - they are perfect. Sign me up for your first retreat.

Unknown said...

Kelly said...

How absolutely awesome! Hubby & I were just making reservations to spend a few days in the mountains over the 4th of July weekend. We'll help you unpack! Congratulations....you've earned a quiet, peaceful place to relax. What will you name it?

Patti said...

Don't think you'll have any trouble finding sewing buddies, lol! Congratulations Bonnie. Can't think of anyone who deserves it more!

Purl Buttons said...

Delightful! How close are you to--no, let me ask only if you are in driving distance to any of my guilds: Pieceful Mountain Quilt Guild (Blue Ridge, GA), Misty Mountain Quilt Guild (Blairsville, GA), or Southern Appalachian Modern Quilt Guild (Murphy, NC). I am afraid if you give away too many details, some of us will carpool over to stalk you! Meant humorously, but celebs have to be careful. And you are one of my favorite celebs.

Susan said...

Congratulations! How exciting!

Theresa Litz said...

Just tell me when and where...I'll be there with bells on! :) Congratulations! You deserve it! So happy for you!

Gretchen Mcroberts said...

What a beautiful retreat for you and your family to enjoy!! Won't it be exciting to quilt there looking out on the spectacular view season after season! I am sure it is a dream come true for you that you have worked very hard to achieve; just looking at your travel schedule makes my head spin. Hopefully you will take lots of time off to enjoy it! And, if by some chance, you would have classes there, It would be wonderful to visit you.

norma v said...

Kay in NJ said...

It looks heavenly! So happy for you and your family.

Congrats to you and your family Bonnie. I hope you get lots of time to get away and enjoy it. From the pictures it looks amazing!! May many quilts get sewn there :)

Becky Clay said...

Yep, just waiting to RSVP you! LOL! Am so happy for ya!

LaRae said...

I would love this place as a

Material Girl said...

Congratulations Bonnie, it looks like a marvelous place, I'm so happy for you and your family!
Hope you can have lots of girlfriends come and sew with you, if I lived closer I would for sure come and sew with you, I think it would be awesome, but being in Canada it might be a little bit of a problem.

Back Porch Extras said...

Congratulations! I know how you feel about your log cabin and being in the mountains. When we move here 15 years ago to East TN near the Smokey Mountains on top of the mountain so I could see mountains when I sew. So grab your sewing machine and enjoy watching the snowflakes fall, leaves change and the budding of new life. Maybe if you have a retreat I will leave my mountain to visit yours. Enjoy!

quilter said...

Congratulations!! Love that view! I'm guessing you are 2- 2 1/2 hrs away from Charlotte, but much cooler in the summer. Enjoy every minute!

KQ Sue said...

Yea! Looks fabulous! Lucky You!
If you are in the Linville to Boone area, beware of the weekend after 4th of July weekend. Grandfather Mountain Highland Games happen and there is a major traffic jam/grid lock from Thursday through Sunday. Stock up and stay in quilting!

Myra Mae McFarland said...

Cabin? That's a palace in the woods. Congratulations! Do you need a maid? I don't do windows (except on the computer), wash dishes, clean, do laundry, dust or anything except loll about and stitch. ;-)

Tamie said...

Just returned from my tiny cabin in Montreat. We have had it for about six years now and even though it is 4-1/2 hours from home we go every chance we get. It is like another world. Have fun.

SO happy for you Bonnie! A lovely place for new dreams!

Lisa said...

Congrats on the 2nd home and the life experiences you'll have there! Too funny...last November we started looking for a 2nd home in the sun for the winter months and found it in April. We negotiated back and forth, finally came to an agreement. They wanted to keep the furnishings so we were looking forward to furnishing it in the fall. The day after we got home from finding the house I found out I need major surgery before the end of the year and it will be a year recovery. I'm bummed. But I will enjoy your new home experiences and quilt vicariously through you (your wonderful blog!) until I can have them for myself.

Sherri said...

Yes, Bonnie! I'll sign up to be a companion sewer at your new mountain cabin. Just let me know when to be there.:-) Congratulations. You sooooooo deserve this.

Caro said...

Just wonderful1!! You and your family deserve it. I'm in for quilting -- and I even cook and clean:))!

The Thimblemouse of Country Crossroads said...

Most excellent news! Congrats...yes, you and your fam have certainly worked very hard and I'm glad this is working out for you. Bob is always 'encouraging' me to run away and sew/stitch/quilt....I'm sure I could join you along with the other almost 4,000 followers here...I guess we'll have to take a #...haha...wow...there's an idea...a lottery! LOL

Kim Andrews said...

Blessings to you and your new cabin!! May you share many happy moments with family and friends. I hope you will be doing quilt retreats in the future so I can come and visit and sew with you!! xx

Lori said...

Congrats Bonnie! It is lovely, although I have to take issue with your "mountains"! lol Beautiful view regardless. xxoo

Bonnie Miller said...

WONDERFUL ! I'll come to your mountain house to sew and then you can come to our beach house to sew! It is only an hour away from where we live as well...but the only problem is that you are in America and I am in New Zealand. I wonder whether thought travel would work?...

qltmom9 said...

Oh, sewing there with you would be a dream vacation. LOVELY. You certainly earned it.

Lucy (in IN, who'd come sew ANYTIME)

ALICIA said...

Enhorabuena Bonnie, es preciosa y me gustaría acompañar en algún momento, pero estoy muy lejos, que la disfruten muchos años.

AddieNCE said...

Oh Bonnie, I am soooo happy for your and your hubby!

This cabin looks wonderful. I already loved it when you posted the first pictures.

I can't wait to see pictures of you sewing there, enjoying your family time and maybe even having little sewing retreats there... I bet this cabin will be the new home for lots of quilts :)

I will keep my fingers crossed for you that you and your hubby will really be able to spend 4th of July over there...

(gee... I am all excited about those news...) :)

valerie boudier said...

Pity I'm too far away to join you. It looks idyllic

quilthexle said...

Congratulations! So glad it's all working out for you now. Looking forward to seeing pictures of you treadling on the deck! Enjoy!

Pauline said...

I'm so happy for you and your family. Mostly furnished too! All that's needed is your personal touch. You will find those natural walls inside to have a calming, peaceful feeling for you. Might it become your retirement home?

pdudgeon said...

so glad that this is working out for you at last, and that you've found such a great place.

elively said...

So happy for you! It looks like paradise! Enjoy!

Robert said...

Candace said...

I am SO SO SO excited for you!

Becky said...

Congratulations, Bonnie!!!! What a thrill for you and your family. I can totally relate. We just purchased a home at the lake with lake views. We will begin moving our things July 1st. It's a dream come true. A dream I didn't think was possible. Enjoy!!! So happy for you!

Unknown said...

Hey, I'm in NC and would LOVE to come quilt with you as long as we could take some walks in the woods between blocks.

Congrats on the purchase !

Rori said...

Oh Bonnie...Congratulations! I am so excited for you and I can imagine you and your honey or friends, sitting on that front porch drinking your favorite beverage, just sitting, rocking and chit chatting!

I would love to sew with you some day but for now I will just live through the quilt cam. :) Thank you for all you bring to the quilting world. God Bless YOU! Janita

Janet said...

What a beautiful cabin and view. I don't think your cabin would hold all your fans. I would quilt with you any day. One of my "to do's" is to take 1 or more quilting classes with you.

HelenMarie said...

Congratulations!
Count me in! I'll be packed in 5 min!

Allison in Plano said...

Awwwwww Bonnie!!! My heart is full for you too. How wonderful it will happen in time for you to celebrate the Fourth of July with your family. Lots of sacrifice is about to pay off.

The best news, to have a hard worked for dream come true. Congratulations to you and DH may you share many special times in your "Special Place". We had one too, it was where we could be together as a family only us. However, should after a period of just family time you get the urge, we would love to come for a visit. Thank you for all you do for everyone. Enjoy your family and the view.

CONGRATULATIONS!! This has been your dream and it has come true! It looks like a wonderful place to retreat to---you and your DH, your kids and any lucky quilters you invite will have a grand time in that cabin (no, more like a log palace!). Can't wait to see the fireworks of happiness that will be coming out of there this July 4th!!!

P.S. Also can't wait to see what quilts you bring or make to decorate it with!

Becky G said...

Congratulations! And well done, working so hard has really paid off. You'll have so many wonderful memories made there. Hopefully your far flung extended family will be able to come and visit and enjoy our restful mountains with you. Best wishes to you & yours.

Congratulations! Now, I wonder which will come first, the closing on the Bonnieland Retreat Cabin, or the reaching of the 4000 followers mark? You are only ten away from 4000, I betcha you'll hit that long before the June closing, LOL! Good for you!

Congratulations!
What a beautiful place as a personal quilt retreat!
If you ever need company, I'll volunteer. My sewing machine, fabric, etc. can be quickly packed at a moments notice. :)
In the meantime, enjoy the fruits of your labors.

Linda said...

Congratulations, Bonnie! You could fill that cabin 365 days a year with quilters who would love to sew with you.

I just finished sewing the binding on my Roll Roll Cotton Boll sitting in a rocker on a porch looking at those mountains. What a beautiful place to kick back and relax. I'm so happy for you!

Wonderful! We had a 1920's farmhouse in the Ozark mtns. of north Arkansas for 6 years. We got it put on the National Register of Historic Places while we owned it. We sold it in Jan. I know how excited you are! I'll come and sew on your porch with you anytime. I'll even bring my The Free brand treadle! LOL!

Bonnie,

Congratulations, I am so happy you have found just the right mountain home for you and your family. I know you will spend many happy days there.

I hope you have an open house at your new mountain home. Where is it? DH and I are spending next week in a cabin in the West Jefferson area as we do every year about this time. I love the mountains.

Hey, I am available for a quilting event if you have one.

We just returned from 8 days on the Blue Ridge Parkway in our little Airstream, in Boone at a campsite, Blowing Rock, and traveling through the Mt. Rogers National Forest in Grayson County, Virginia where I raised my two oldest kids, and then on to the Smokies, camping. I surely miss those beautiful mountains and am so happy that you finally found the perfect place!!

Are you taking reservations :) ha ha I'll wait til you get settled in. Would be a wonderful location for a fall quilt retreat. I live in Louisburg,NC so I can drive up and over ;)

diegoagogo said...

Oh massive congratulations to you!! I just love those rockers! I love to sit in a rocker & quilt or knit or snooze, nothing better in my books. That view will keep you entertained for years to come.
I am sure if you opened the doors as a B&B you would be booked for the next few lifetimes. Maybe you could employ an assistant to handle the bookings LOL. No seriously, that sounds like a good retirement fund idea. I bet you could find an agency that would take care of everything for you & you just reap the rewards. It's a thought?
Glad to see you won't have to wait too long to enjoy your new space. I know you will love it & share that with us all.
Cheers
