Great Friends.

Last week was a lovely week. I had my birthday and had a lot of fun with my friends. Here are a spontaneous clebration in the shop, thanks to Abyquilt who brought the cake.The cake was excellent and so are the girls to.
I even got some quilting present together with all the other wonderful presents I got.I got one new thimble (from Hønefoss)and fabric with Sunbonnet Girl. Nemo realy made me speechless. She had made me to giftbags and filled them with Jelly Bean and Skittles( I even got Skittles together with a beautiful T-skirt from my oldest daugther)I have two lovely daugthers. But it was the books that I got from Nemo and her boyfriens that made me speechless.All the three Pattern books from Elm Creek.Guess who has a lot of ideeas and things she want to do.... ;-)
Almost as a birtday gift I got this wonderfull Spring Fling Round Robin to call my own. Marissa has made the center.Kate the first border. Kari the second border and Carol has quilted it. They has made a great job. I love it. Thank you girls.
I was clever last week , I took a trip to Lappehøna on my bicycle. The first time this year. I will try to do it more often this summer.Here are Lapphøna with one of her hen, name Anne Siri. I belive the hen think she are one of us girls. She use to came running to get some comfort and have a chat with us. ;-)
Look wat I found on my trip. Lily Of the Valley and a new quilt magasine.Quilts and More. There are some great ideas in it. I have started to do some coasters in bright colours.I will show you later. Look how great the bag I got from Gail suit my bike.
My friend Lisbeth where staying one night last week, so we had to invite Lappehøna to chat and have a little workshop.We had to inagurate my new sewing area. In advace Lisbeth and I had to go to the Golf links. We had to get Tee. Not as easy as I belive it would be.We could not get it in the other sports shops near by. But after a lot of laughing and telling what we should do with it we got it. No problem to buy, but I didn't know how it looks like or how tall I wanted it to be. The girl in the shop had to visit Arlettes blog to see. Take a look , it is filled with great ideas.
Here are our flowers. Pin cushions to put in a reel. The Tee are the stem.Are they not cute ;-)
I got this from Lappeguri. Thank you ,you are so kind. I want to pass it on to some of the great blogs I read. First I want to give it to Lapphøna. Then to Nemo. I love also to read Chookyblue, Gudrun's and Quiltoholic's blogs as wel. Plus a lot more great blogs.

Have a great week, tacke care and have fun. ;-)
