Trip To Trondheim

We had a lot of fun when we took the trip to Trondheim. It started after a few Norwegian miles. There was Llama on the run in the road. They are staying in a farm by the road, but I had not seen one on the run before. It was realy big. ;-)
We did meet a lot of animals on this trip. We saw a Fox, two Roe-deers and at last two Norwegian Mooses. And of course I was not fast enough with my camera to get photoes to show...
But I manage to get a photo of Hurtigruta. This are going all the way to Kirkenes, all filled with touristes. They are on the way to see the Midnight- sun. Oh, I wish it was me...
Here are what the woods around my parents home looks like.All white with White Anemones. Just lovely.
Jacob was verry pleased when he returned to his house in the cage. He looks as he thinks....Home sweet Home. But he are realy happy when he are with us on a trip. ;-)
I didn't get photos from the quilt shops in Trondheim. But I got some great buyings.Strange what I didn't know what I needed... Great fabrics , a pattern with Strawberries from QuiltFig Trees and a pink ruler....
I have been working on small Blocks of the Mounth. Some friends of us has started on the little red work Sunbonnet Sue from Little Quilts. We did started now in May so it realy are the first one. The other are Lynette Andersons Noas Ark. The free BOM from her Blog. She are so great sharing it with all of us here in Blog-land.
I have also made me two Book Marks from a Bird Brain Designs pattern. Realy fun and easy to make. And all the fabrics are from my stash. ;-) I'm organize all my Quilting stash and WOW I did found a lot of forgotten items..... I'm not the only one ?

Some days ago I had a great vistior in my birdhouse.. The most beautiful wild bird I know. A Bullfinch. He use to show up in the winter, but I didn't see him then. Look how bright and red he is. I hope he don't tell it will be a short summer.
I will stop now, I have more to show from the Quilt world next time. I have a lot going on in my new sewing area. It is so great...I can move around.
Have some great quilting time. See you. ;-)
