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?!

    2. 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.

  9. 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".

    ReplyDelete
  10. 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!

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  13. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  14. 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.

  43. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  68. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Congratulations! How exciting!

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

    ReplyDelete
  71. 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.

  87. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  88. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  89. 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!

  90. 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!

  119. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  120. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  138. 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?...

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

  164. 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.

  167. 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.

  172. 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!

  182. 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!

  183. 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!!

  184. 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 ;)

    ReplyDelete
  185. 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
