Countdown...

I'm couting down to the Norwegian Quilt Associations big event this weekend. Only one more day , so of to Olavs Gård to meet all the other ladies from all over Norway.There are a lot of us going from Elverum Quiltelag. I think it is going to be a great fun....but may be expensive. There are more than 20 stores comming, and I don't know what I Must have. I'm also going to a talk with Kaffe Fasett.
I had to make me a new bags. The little one are Lykkefugl (good luck-bird)from Nothern Quilt
And the big one are from an old Homespun (vol.8 No.11) called A Woman's Glam Bag. I fell hard when I saw it in the magasin. Now I got my self a new bag to bring with me.
One day after Easter my friend Vigdis and I was talking abouth old quilts we had made some years ago. And I remember these two smal quilts.The first one are from my first BOM a pattern from Debbie Mumm. I made it only with her fabrics. When I saw it I think it looks great, time has been kind to it.
The second quilt are older. One of my first I think. I had just learn how to applique hearts, and I remember sitting out on my porch trimming all the Hourglass Blocks. A great quilt to remember all the old fabrics.
We got a visit of Cyan and her "mother" at Easter. Here are the very first meting between Cyan and Jacob. We didn't know how they respond on each other, so Jacob stayd in his travelling-cage.But there was no problem so we let him out soon, but keep a close eye on them.

The last photo are what I realy got to have from my trip to Trondheim last weekend.I was able to get to Quiltegården and Jordbærstedet....I tryed not to buy a lot, thinking abouth this weekend. ;-) The book just jumped in my bag..."from my heart" by The Birdhouse. Great stitchery book.I also got me some Quilting thread. Somtimes I think my sewing maskine eat thread..... I also got Yli Silk thread and Glue-Bast-It.( So now I'm ready to applique.) I got my self a two new fabrics and a little Stitchery frame.All great buyings.
I will take photos to show you from all the happenings this weekend. So untill next time...have some great days. I know I will....
