Great weeks

There has been some great weeks her.... My brother and his sons from France has been visiting. It is the first time the boys have been in Norway during the summer. An a lot was happening around her. My parents came and stayed in their cabin. Her are some swans sviming in the lake close to the cabin. My camera is not so good, but the white spots are not snow. ;-)
We took the boys to a show of old cars.Cyrian took a lot of photos of the cars. There was realy some great cars.....
On saturday we celebrate my brothers 50 years birthday. Cyan and her mother came as well as my youngest brother with his family. It was a great time. Not often we all mee. Cyan realy liked the flowers.( she ate them)
Jacob love to have visitors and hope to be in one of their suitcases on their return.....or was he looking after what they took with them??? Any way he was walking after my brother to watch what he was doing.
The boys realy took it all out. Wonder if Cyan fell a sleep before he got in the bed...
My quilting time has been a little broken these last weeks, but I have manage to make this miniature and post it out in the world for my partner at the Miniature Booty Swap Round 2.I love to make small quilts. This quilt are all made by hand. I have to make one for my self soon .
I have also got some great gifts. From Aldi in Spain I got all this. A Thimble from La Rioja and all the other great suff she had made for me. Thank you so mutch Aldi I love it.
I even got two thimbles from some great friends in Elverum. From Inger I got one from Skiblander( a boat on Mjøsa) and from Anne-Britt I got one from Besseggen. I got a card from Jørann. She are in Beijing to cheer the Norwegian handball team. And they did a great job, both the girls on the team and the cheer set. The Norwegian girls got the gold medal. ;-)
The Cup cake can I found in a store the other day. It called out for me wanted to be filled with Chocolate Mix Skittles. ( a little secret just for me..... ) ;-)
I almot forgot to show you a photo of Cyan and Swan trying to get the heat back after a little bath in the lake by the cabin. Great with fire in the open fireplace.It is in the center of the cabin,exact as in the "Logcabin" block.
On our way back home we happen to meet this guy on the road. It is a Tiur (wood grouse) The first time I manage to get a photo of one of them. They are realy big birds.

Now I'm of to start a lot of sewing...I got three days just to sew and a lots of things to do.I hope to show you what I manage to make. Before I'm of to work again on thursday. To morrow I'm going to post a little "Hello" to my secred partner of the Stitchers Angel Swap......
