Back home :)

Have you missed me???

I have been in Hell. I'm not joking, I really have been in Hell. Hell is a place in Stjørdal, near by the city Trondheim. It was at this place The Norwegian Quilt Association had their annual meeting. It was a lot of joking about having the meeting at this place.

I found this photos on the net and borrowed them to show you. This one is from the train station.
This photo is the most sold postcard from this place.
We had a great meeting. About 300 ladies had registrated to this meeting. And I and Nancy was in charge of checking them in. Look.......we even had guards to protect us LOL. Because of that we could not lock the one exhibition room, the hotel offered to hire securitas guards.
This is the quilt we had for our lottery on sunday. One lucky person could win this one by buying lotterytickets. It was so pretty, but I did not win it.On friday evening when all the ladies (and one man) had arrived we had dinner together. A very tasty soup called Trøndersodd, which is special for this part of the country. After dinner Andre Rustad Wallenborg had a lecture of how he started making purses. This is a photo from the dinner.

This is just a short note to tell you I'm back home. I am tired after six days of hard work. Organizing a meeting like this is a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. So now I will unpack my suitcase ,which was SO heavy, but I did not have to pay for the overweigth luckily. I will show you more photos from the meeting, my class with Katie P Masopust, the shops and a lot of more. I had a great time with good friends, a lot of inpiration, laughter and fun. Now I'm off to bed and tomorrow it is a ordinary day at work. And hopefully I will now have some time to sew. I bought some books, patterns and fabric. I just could not resist.

Quilt saying for today:

Friends fill your life with joy,
your soul with sunshine,
And your heart with love.

Yes, I missed you! It sounds like a great meeting though. I saw someone else's purses they made from that class. Did you take the purse class, too? I'm glad you had a chance to go, after all that working and no sewing time.

What an exciting story! It sounds absolutely wonderful. :D

I can hardly wait to see more pictures of the event. What a wonderful even to help host and to attend. Love the location! Seems like "heaven" would be more appropriate as long as the place is full of quilters.

Welcome back!

Look like you had a fun class. The lady is giving a lecture this evening at Teknisk Museum. I am not sure if I will go or not.
