Trip to Bergen...

I have been(are?) a lazy blogger,but I have been busy. Organize my fabrics and my sewing room,I deside to cut the selvage of from all my fabrics, so I easy can start to play with them. My head are spining with new ideas... So when I was in Bergen , for the first time, of'course I have to look after some funny one. What to do with the fabrics I don't know... Her you can see the famous Wharf of Bergen.
And here are the view from the Hotell where we where staying. Next year NQFs annual meeting are taking place here. So you ladies in Norway, who are comming, you have a lot of fun in front of you:-)
Blogline and I have a discussion about in witch order my photo come to the blog( I loose...)
But any whay. This is a little bag I made for Nemo, with selvage of'course.. Most of them from her fabrics...
So back to Bergen.. Look at this great Pirate ship... But there was no Pirate to see.....
More selvages... a lot more... a Mug Rug for me.. Can you see the cute birds and elephants...No you can see why I look for cute selvages...
a little purse, this time with ties from diffrent shops.I whish every shop got one with their name on it... A new item to collect :-)
.... the front of the purse... A Lynette Anderson pattern. ( she got the cute birds on her fabrics- by the way)
Two mug rugs for Peder- to put his bottle on. A need for a very young man :-)
A need for a grand mother (me).. I got the selvage from this lovely frabrics from Nemo,and it remind me of The Beatles and my youth, so I had to collect more "look a like"- selvages and make me this little pouch.

So now with almost all of my fabrics tidy,I can start to ponder what to make next... Chritmas present... Hmmm a great idea...

Have a great weekend - I know mine will shine... Tell you more next time.
Hugs :-)

Nice to see you again, Laila, and enjoy your pictures. You know, I see beautiful blogs with all the pictures arranged nicely with words on a good place. Doing that is more than I am capable of and sometimes I can't even get the words with the correct pictures. I am beginning to think I am just too old to learn! Those selvages are amazing and so well used!
