Jumping about

Jippi. I got a wonderful Winter Swap. Isn't it just great ! Thank you Dixie. I can't find your mail-adress so I hope you read my blog. I just love the quilt. ;-) And thank you Margaret for making it happen. I have also sign up at Spring Fling Round Robin.
In this week I got visitors from France. It is my brother with his two sons. They are going to ski and to play in the snow.And as you can see there are no problem to find snow. It is more difficult to find the house.
Here are my two France nephews. Cyrian are the viking with no shirt on. And Swan are his younger brother. We are realy having a great time.

Some days ago I went to Trondheim in a hurry to visit my parents. (My father was sick, but he are mutch better now. ) I went to visit Quiltegården and Jordnærstedet for a verry quick shopping, I realy need some new fabrics. ;-) And I had not been at Jordbærstedets new shop.It was so big and great. Luckey you all in Trondheim who got two great shops...
Here you can see what I realy needed.....I put all the items from the both shops in one photo. I realy don't remember witch shop I bought it in. Shame the hurry..... ;-)
When Nadine was visiting May Britt I was asked to visit them with Anne Ida and Hanne. Our friends Irene and Bjørg were there to. We realy had a great day. So thank you May Britt for bringing us all together. Here are a photo of the blogging team.
And Jacob had a great time when I got home, I bring him a taste of Kranse- cake from May Britt. He realy loves it. Look how happy he are.....
At last I want to show you my first block of Butterfly Garden. We are going to sell it as a BOM in Lille Stasjon. It is all made with Japanece fabrics. I think it is so fun to make....So thanks Leanne for making the pattern of "Sommerfugl Hagen"

Laila, your 'Sommerfugl Hagen' first block looks beautiful. It's so exciting for me to see them starting to be stitched. The snow at your house looks amazing - wish I was there quilting in your home with all the ladies.
