This is my two good friends Anita and Nancy who lives in Grimstad. Here we are visiting the quilt shop "Merethes Lille Atelier". I only bought one little piece of fabrick and a button.
This is Gizmo. And of course a cat who lives in a quilters home have to have his own placemat
We were working all weekend preparing papers for the Norwegian Quilt Associations annual guilt meeting. And we got very good help from Gizmo.
Now I can button up :) Look what my friend Nancy had bought me when she was on holiday in Caribien. A necklace and earrings made of buttons. Just perfect for a quilter that loves buttons.
I have had a lovely weekend with good friends. No sewing done, so I have a lot to catch up now. Tomorrow I am starting a new class in hand stitching. Six ladies who I hope will be hocked on quilting. We will start with ohio star and monkey wrench and go further on with different tecniques. I will teach them how do applique with freezerpaper and how to baste a quilt. And finally I will teach them how to handquilt. And during eight evenings and with a lot of homework they will make a sampler quilt.
There is a new blogger among us. Take a look at Jeanne blog Luv2stitch and say hello and mention I sendt you. She is one of the ladies that had made a block in my DJ siggie swap. I challenged her to make a blog too and she have done that now. I am looking forward to see what she is making.
