She told (ordered) me to treat myself in the quiltshop and so I did LOL They have received a lot of new Lecien fabrics, and they were sooooooo beautiful. I am collecting japaneese fabrics and I had to buy these. Aren't they lovely. And there is several more bunles from this fabric collection left in the shop (waiting for me :) But one thing that wonders me is that there is so hard to find red, yellow and orange japaneese fabric. I am sure they are out there in the big world somewhere......or are they not?????
Later today Nancy (my friend from Grimstad) called me and told she and her husband was passing through Elverum on their way back home. And they wanted to have a little break on their long drive back home. I met them at the restaurant where they were having dinner and then I took them to the quilt shop. I had arrange that the shop was open only for her :) I couldn't let her pass Elverum without a visit to our quiltshop. She bought some fabric, and so did I ................. again. Three beutiful christmas fabrics. Christmas in may!!!!!!!!!!! But I had to buy them now because there was so little left at the bundles LOL And Nancy is making a beautiful pattern for a christmas tree skirt which I want to make.
My bad shoulder does not allow me to do very much sewing, but I have been able to do some stitchery this weekend. Sitting comfortable in my favorite chair I have made these two cute girls. Will do the final stitches this evening. And I think I know what to make of them.....wait and see.
Nadine have become a very dear friend to me. She and I are like twin sisters sharing joys and sorrows, laughs and tears. We have never met in real, but I hope we'll do very soon.
Last friday I received another beautiful treasure envelope from her. Look what she sendt me:
I love the book and the pattern.She know I am collecting japaneese fabrics and she had cut a little piece of her japaneese. I am now doing the same back to her with my japaneese. Sharing small pieces of the fabricstash is fun and you don't need big pieces to make beautiful things. And look at the tag I got "Warning, quilter on the move!" Thats me!!!! I'm going to have it on my suitcase next time I'm travelling. Or perhaps I should have it on my purse............or even better......on my jacket. Thank you Nadine, you know how to make my day!!
Saying for today:
What brings joy to the heart
is not so much the friend's gift,
but the friend's love
