My beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
Even with temps only in the 40s, it was a beautiful sunny, albeit chilly December day –with plenty of gusty winds to make you want to stay in and enjoy the view from INSIDE the cabin!
It’s one of those things where life says “You are out of cardboard mailers, and out of 3 books titles, and nothing will be in until Monday – so just put it out of your mind and go enjoy the outdoors.”
So we did.
My Christmas present to myself came just in time this year --
While I like the 4 wheelers, the boys love them better, and two 4 wheelers and 4 people can make things a bit difficult.
I’m also not hell-on-wheels the way the boys are, and after riding in my friend Mona’s Side by Side ATV a couple of times, I knew that this was a much friendlier way for me to ride the 30+ miles of roads up on Buck Mountain, an ATV friendly community where our cabin resides.
So…Early Saturday morning, this came to reside with me, in my favorite color of all:
Bonnie’s Quilt Villa Mobile!
It’s 5 years old, I am the 3rd owner, and the price was very reasonable. Can you see me zooming around the mountain and Sadie riding shot gun??
It matches my School Bus colored Feathereweight!
Oh yes, We’ve got it going on!
The view at the top of this post was taken while out in the RZR enjoying some scenery this afternoon. This is going to be fun.
Some Sewing also happened today:
Mona, back hard at it, sewing strip sets for 4 patches!
My mess, working on Hourglass units in Christmas Red, Green & Neutral!
These blocks will appear in a future Addicted to Scraps Column with Quiltmaker Magazine, and then wind up in a full quilt pattern in a future book so stay tuned. I jumped into this one because sewing with holiday fabrics puts me in a holiday mood!
I’ve had fun combining vintage Christmas prints with some newer reds and greens as well for a fun mix. It was hard for me to leave this at the cabin and come home this evening!
I’ll be back up to the cabin next Friday evening – we have new doors being installed..goodbye leaky drafty old dented aluminum doors…time for some INSULATED ones!
