Climbing the Quilting Ladder…

YIKES!!  I slept in and I have Heritage Quilting today AND I am on kitchen duties…which means I am one of the quilters bringing the goodies and starting the coffee/tea!  I CAN’T BE LATE!  Can you picture a room full of ladies (70-100) without their coffee and a cookie to dunk?  Not a pretty sight, is it? 

Just a quick sharing…stopped at ‘a’ Garage Sale on Saturday :o) and just HAD to share what I bought…

…What every quilter dreams of…a ladder!  Yup, hubby did a definite eye roll when he saw this one!!  Oh well…he’ll get over it!!  :o)…So here she is and must say she is VERY sweet.

Let me pan back…not too big…not too small…just right!

P1140505

I’m not SURE of where she will reside…but for now she is in our family room…where hubby can look at her all day long!! haha

P1140512

The cost of this little ladder…$1!! SCORE!! I think she was at one time a bunk bed ladder…BUT she is much happier as a quilt ladder…or SEW she says!

Have a Merry Monday and Happy Quilting!~P

It's just perfect. What is he whining about? Remind him that he didn't have to do any manual labor like attach it to the wall like I had my Dear Hubby do!

I know I have one of those ladders around here somewhere. Guess I'll be looking for it and copying your idea. Thanks!

Love your find...fantastic price. I have one that my dear brother in law made for me specifically for quilts. I love it.

Cheryl said...

A definite score!! Perfect in your pretty home.

Jackie said...

What a deal! It looks great too. I saw someone yesterday who was using it to store flimsies as a reminder of what needed to be quilted.

Happy Monday!

Oh my, Paulette that ladder is fabulous. I'd be asking my hubby on a regularly basis if he'd seen my new ladder - LOL

I love ladders, and made one out of 1x3's and dowels. It looks great all decked out with quilts. Great score at the garage sale.

Allie said...

Well I hope you got there before they got a posse going to look for you, lol - LOVE that little ladder, that's on my list of must haves - trust you to find one for $1!

You make me laugh, I can picture how your DH rolled his eyes and now has to sit and have the ladder next to him in the family room :)

Jackie said...

I have one of those too but made specifically for my quilts :) My son's ex-girlfriend made it for me...LOVE it..yours is really cool too.
