At the end of the rainbow....

Last weekend some ladies from my Quiltgroup and I went to Trondheim to take a class with Leanne and Gail . They has come all the way from Australia to Quiltegården. We where going by bus , and not far from Trondheim these fashionale rainbows appear. ( the photo are out of the buss window) So now I'm certain there are a treasure at the end of the rainbow. We found a weekend filled with show and tell, old and new friends, and a lot of new ideas ,and must do items.
We where not the only one trying to get something out of the weekend, on saturday there was a film team from "Norge Rundt"( A norwegian TV- show ) They where doing a repotage from Gail and Leannes visit and what we Quilting ladies where up to. The team realy had to work. It was fun to see how mutch work a little report in TV are.... It will be on TV in about a month.
Leanne had done some great pattern for us. A redwork for saturday and this bouquet for sunday.I started on this- promise to show when it is done...
Gail had some santas for saturday and this little quilt for sunday... I started to stitch santas, but I will do this quilt soon. She brougth with her all the models from her book. It is a must have book , filled with beautifull small quilts and ideas. May be a Christmas gift to wish for.
Here you can see some of the models they brougth with them all the way.
This was what meet us when we came to class on saturday... At last I got what I have seen on photos from clases in Australia - Bags with gifts , name tags and pattern in... WoW. We got a great gift from Siw. I will show that also when done.This was a great start on a fantastisc week end. We where a lot of blogging ladies. Sølvi has a photo of us all with all our names and blog adresses.It was so fun getting to know the faces behind the blognames...
This is Siw, the hostess for all this fun. She are on Hurtigruta with Leanne and Gail now. With new ladies- in new classes. They also got AnnAka as a teatcher. I know there are going to be grat fun on the boat too...
This are some of what we where doing in class. It is a start of Lailas Garden-which I'm going to start on soon....
Here you can see some og our Santas...I have almost done two... One for me and one to give away...

Even I got a lot of new pattern , some fabrics and a lot of "realy have to have"-items at Quiltegården- There where a kind lady waiting for us at the bus station in Tynset with more we just need. Lappemor came with a new pattern and stitchery batting. I also was so luckey to get a wisp from her... Again - show when done...

At the end for to day- I have to say Thank You to all my friends from last weekend.It was so fun to meet you all and I hope we will meet again some times..
Hugs.
