May 17th

May 17th is Norways national day and we are proud to be Norwegian on a day like this.
We woke up to a wonderful sunny day.
Childrens parade with a marching band. It is always so nice to listen to the band and watch the norwegian flag. A lot of people are dressed in bunad and I am proud of wearing mine. I forgot to take a photo of me in bunad. But if you want to see how it look like please visit Anne's (Quiltaholic) blog and see. I got one just like hers.

My DD and her friend giving their cards to the children in the parade.


My DS and DD.
The last parade on this day is the parade made by russen. And my DD was in it. I'm sure they are starting to feel very tired now. Yesterday I invited my DD russ friends on pizza. I think it was about 15-20 russ at one time. And I think they loved my pizza. Then they went out partying all night, waking up the teachers early in the morning, joining the childrens parade and finally their own parade.
This has been a wonderful day. But now my feet are sore and I'm tired.

Hi - thanks for your lovely comment - the children had lots of fun sewing. I saw one of the home sweet home quilts made up on Candleberry Country's web site and loved it - then I saw the easier one in Homespun - I just want to learn new skills and love the new fabric I have bought - the sampler one coming from America is really lovely and only £4 a yard - half price compared to here - WOW! I heard about Norway day on the radio - glad you had fun. Lucy

Looks like a fun day was had by all. Rest your feet with some hand sewing and you'll be great.
