My Thimbles

Yesterday May Britt showed her thimbles and she told about Nancy and her big collection of thimbles. Nancy also has a Give a way, so you shold take a look .I promise to show my thimbles as vel. I only have a few. These two I love , the most simple belong to my grandmother. I don't know how old the thimble are but my grandmother was born in 1904. (I think.) And the other was hers sister-in -laws. As you almost can see har name was Bergliot. I don't know when she was born, but I think they was almos at the same time.The thimbles are both in silver and they has a blue stone on the top.Bergliot's has a drake around it.Like the one you can see on old woodcutting from the time when the Viking's was around.

Here are the rest of my little collection, I have got almos every one from good friends. They are from;Amsterdam,Island,Roma,London,Lanzarote,France and the last are from Hell. ;-) Last years NQF meeting was at a little place in Trøndelag, Norway named Hell.
On Saturday we went to Oslo to celebrate Nemo.s birtday( She are having her birtday to day)And of course I have to take a quick walk in town. I needed to go to Panduro to buy some panting for the Cloudberry-pattern. But when I came to the desk to pay, I had got more. ;-) Two nice boxes Safety pins and ordinary pins + three fabrics.....

We also had a stop at my oldes daughter's home to visit her and not at least Cyan.( I think she are a Quilting cat) She has found herself a new sleeping place.I have promice to make her a quilted sleeping bag..... In brown and pink.
To day I went to Lappehøna to visti her and get a chat and of course coffee. we even manage to do some sewing. LOL The sun was shining and it was lovely to walk. No ice on the road...But it is a lot of snow on the mountain.I wounder when it will be gone?
