Mid-day Agenda!

November 1st.  Bye bye, October!  The halloween quilt that was displayed over the longarm as a backdrop to QuiltCam last night has been folded and put away and my more autumn colored “Love on a Shoestring Budget”  quilt now resides on the dining room table with some quilted pumpkins made from vintage over-dyed cutter quilts.  I love my dining room – it’s more a nook than anything, but it is a very cozy place to be!

Remember Yard Sale Saturday?  I’ve been far too busy and far too gone to continue with it at present  Suzanne at http://www.coloradolady.blogspot.com/ has offered to host it!

So if you have anything to list THIS Saturday, ((Yes two days from now)) start pulling, pricing and writing your blog post.  Suzanne will post the linky and I’ll give a shout out here for everyone to go over there.  If you need to contact Suzanne with questions, email her here: smelkoski@yahoo.com

Yard Sale Saturday generally runs the first Saturday of each month, and I really enjoyed it.  Perhaps I'll find a few things to list and include as well on Saturdays that I am home.

Have fun with it!  Move some stuff out!  I had a great time doing it, life just got too crazy to host it and I wasn’t home enough Saturdays.  Too much on my plate!

This is the other side of the dinging room.  It’s also where I fill book orders!  And that’s where I’m heading now…the post office opens back up after lunch at 1pm and I intend to be there with books to be mailed.

From there ---I’m off to pick up the Pink Atlas! It’s DONE with its rewiring job! 

Anyone up for QuiltCam tonight?  Look for me about 9pm – this day is going swimmingly and I think I’ll have all my ducks in a row and the van packed for tomorrow’s retreat in West Virginia.  Not sure whether I’ll be treadling tonight –I just might.  The moth in a window blocks are going with me to retreat and will already be packed up and ready to roll ---

Bring a project and come hang out!

  10. Hey Bonnie, Which quilt is the one behind your blog? I can just see the edges and I see it briefly when the page load. I know I have seen it somewhere at quiltville but I can't remember where...

  11. I would like to know about the quilt ladder too. Is it an antique find?, a real ladder?, or something you made?

  12. I love your dining room and the creative ways you found to display your quilts! I'd come over for a cup of coffee anyday.
    Overdying vintage quilts....what a neat idea!

  13. I just love your quilt ladder! It looks wonderful in your gorgeous dining room with your beautiful quilts displayed all around! I want to be able to make quilts like that to be able to decorate my home. I appreciate what you do to teach me many different things such that I think I just might be able to do that! Thank you Bonnie :-)
