A Friend from the past

Yesterday I had to find a friend from years ago. My little old Bernina ,who I got a long time ago. Almost 30 years I think it must have been since I got her. She had made a lot of clothes when my daugthers was small, and she was a part of my early start in the Quilt world.... And now she has got a new start. (Short I hope) My Janome has got some data problems and are on hers way to see the sewingmaskin-docktor. I hope it will be a short stay....I realy love all the data-stuff when it works. ;-(
I have some realy good friends..... some days ago one of my friends , Lisbeth, called and asked where I was thinking to put my thimbles and askes if I want to have her case. I think that was a silly question. Of course I want it. ;-) So thank you Lisbeth, you are so kind. ;-) Look how great my thimbles my looks, and they has realy good space. I need more thimbles, so now I know what to whish if sombody askes. I have put some of my small angels in the case as well.
Yesterday Lapphøna and I persunade our husbonds to take a trip to Lillehammer. Of course we had a reason to go. We had not visit the quilt store ,Quiltespesialisten, since two years ago. I had no acute need for fabrics, but when I got out on the street these great fabrics had steal their way into my handbag......It is realy hopless to be hard in a Quilt store. I even got me some new thinblers. One from Lillehammer and the other from Skibladner.
Look what I have manage to do with the fabrics I bougth at Katrines Quiltestue when I was in Oslo some weeks ago. I have started on the Simple Pleasures Quilt. ;-) To day I have prepare 5 more smal stitchery blocks. I think I will do mostly hand sewing untill I got my maskine home...
I also work on several Swap's Here are a sneak peek on my Four Seasons Quilt Swap. The summer quilt. Starting to get ready to take a trip out in the world. I have also started on my Miniature Booty Quilt.... and to day I have signed up at The Stitched Angels Swap...Always enough to do. I also work on some Gift Quilts that I will show later.....

To day I read on Kim's blog that there were snow in Bundarra....I'm so happy I got summer. But I want to wish every body who like snow in July A merry July Christmas. Take care and enjoy snow.....I will enjoy summertime as long as I can get it.
Love what weather you get, if it rains you can sew. Have fun and take care.

Sorry to hear your Janome is feeling bad - hope it feels better when it comes home from the doctor!

Your thimbles collection looks great! And so does the fabrics from your shopping trip :o) I can see why they had to come home with you!

Way to get going on the Simple Pleasures Quilt! Looks wonderful so far!

Love your little sneak peek of the 4SQS quilt :o)

Hope you're enjoying baby sitting the ratties ;o) Have a great day! Hugs...
