To day I went to visit a friend of me and hers family at their log cabbin in the forrest.This are the view. The cabin are an old summer dairy. As you can see there are some more old cabin around the old property Jacob had to stay at home. This are a photo of him in the lamp.The quilt I name "Jacob's fanclub.The real name of the quilt are Chikken sup. I made it some years ago.
Well. Back to the trip. We drive deep in the forest.As you can see it is an old cosy road.The forest are big and old.
Here are the cabin ,to day the boys are making the roof. They are laying turf on it to make it as it use to look.When it has been growing fore some time the gras will be green and the flowers will bloom on it. Hopefully.The cabin are verry old. Build in 1857.The first use of it was as a summer dairy.I think they have cattle and a flock of sheep and maybe some goats.I allmost culd hear the sound of all the animals and hear the dairymaid caling....
If the photo are kind you can see the numbers saying 1857.It was the builder that cut it in the wood when the cabin was finish.
This is the house . Look what a wounderfull porch they have. And remember the view.I think it is great. My friend and I sat on it most of the day while the boys worked.We talked about nothing and everything.....just had it wounderfull.
She had coffe and waffle with cloudberry jam. I love it just as mutch as it seems.I wish every body of you might taste it.
This was my lovely day. Not so mutch quilting, but I'm going to make me a little purse this evening. Untill later : take care. :-)

What a beautiful place to visit. I would have been rubbing my hand across the date the builder carved on the building. How impressive to be able to visit such a historical place. (Any building that old is historical) It was great fun meeting Jacob! He seems pretty proud of his quilt! Bren

Stunning photos, lovely location, and incredible cabin. And you are eating 'cloudberry' jam? Sounds like a travel program on TV, but your reality is MUCH better! Thank you for this delightful gift to us bloggers.

I am familiar with Bemiji, but now I am from the next state over- Wisconsin, which is a bit far for her to travel. hopefully someone will point you to some quilt shops for her to visit.

Den puilten som heter Jacobs fanclub var virkelig flott! Tør jeg spørre hvor du har fått tak i mønstret til den?
