to market i go!

hey lovelies! i’m so (so so so) excited to be off to quilt market this morning! for those of you who plan to attend, i hope you’ll swing by my booth (#1441) so we can meet in person!

join us at schoolhouse in room A103/104 at 4:55PM where i’ll be presenting with the lovely angela walters and leah duncan.

attend one of our free daily demo’s on how to use the 9° ruler in making the sentimentalities quilt (free pattern download coming soon!) held at 2:00pm friday, saturday and sunday.

grab a sneak peek of quilt market ‘behind the scenes‘ by following me on instagram (search for @goinghometoroost). i can’t wait to share it with you!

run by art gallery fabric’s sample spree table #168, to grab some beautiful fabric bundles!

i’ll be signing off for the rest of the week but plan to share as much as possible with you on instagram, twitter and facebook. i’ll be back next week to share lots of good things with you! xox, bonnie

hello, hawaii!

hey friends! somehow, we’re being blessed with a return trip to hawaii this week (you can see photos from our first trip here). it’s yet another happy work trip for my husband (and myself), and we just couldn’t be more excited to return to this dreamy place. we’ll be gone until next wednesday (2/27), so until then you may notice that things might be a little lighter around here and running on a different time zone.

i’ll be sharing photos on instagram as much as possible and would love for you to meet me there! you can find me by searching for @goinghometoroost. i’m also hoping to share a few videos on vine, where you can find me by searching for ‘bonnie christine’.

going home to roost

November 13, 2012

Posted by in bonnie forkner

we're moving!

the house is empty and the pod is packed,

all tied down and neatly stacked.

hugs and kisses to friends from the years,

we hold on tight and fight back the tears.

a 3 day drive until we arrive,

to the land in which we thrive.

returning to the mountains and streams,

the people and places that fill our dreams.

california we will dearly miss,

we’ll remember often and reminisce.

anxious for what is to be introduced,

we’re finally going home to roost.

- by bonnie and david (in the car).

yes, today we’re starting our 3 day drive to north carolina! and just in case you’re like ‘say, what?!’, you can catch up on our move and my thoughts on it here and here. :) we’ll be hitting up albuquerque, oklahoma city and saint louis along the way before we finally arrive at my parents house late on thursday night. my sister will be waiting as she’s already made plans to whisk us away (or rather scrape us up from off the ground) to attend the opening of twilight. haha. friday we’ll be swinging by our storage unit and grabbing some things we need before we drive to brevard and check out our new home. i can hardly wait! we’ll have about a week to start settling in before our pod arrives and the craziness of unpacking ensues.

follow our trip on instagram! i’ll be instagramming (and tweeting) as much as possible, and would love for you to join us on our journey! you can find me by searching for @goinghometoroost or follow along on my web profile. see you soon!

p.s. i’ve got posts scheduled here for you all week, so you shouldn’t notice much of a change. xo

our yosemite trip!

December 9, 2011

Posted by in lifestyle

happy friday, friends! i’ve finally gone through our 900 and some pictures from our yosemite trip, and wanted to share with you just a few of them today.

our trip was spectacular. we couldn’t have asked for better weather and more beautiful surroundings. during the 4 days we were there, we hiked about 40 miles and climbed an accumulative 15,000 feet (i think i just got my legs back!). for david and i, there’s just something about being in the back country. it makes us feel alive and it draws us back to the basics.
