Friday class with Leanne

My day started with an hour at the physiolady. I had electic theraphy on my shoulder so I felt a bit uploaded when we got in the car and headed for Trysil. We had some hours before the class with Leanne and of course we had to go into the shop. Here is Hanne together with Siw the owner of Quiltegården (a quiltshop in Trondheim). Behind is me talking (and shopping) to Bente who is the owner of Lille Stasjon (the quiltshop in Elverum and Lier).
And then the class started. A lot more ladies today.
This is Hanne, me and Anne Ida waiting for the class to start. Behind us is Merete and Monica.
And then we started on the stitching.
Leanne is always writing greetings to us.
This is the free pattern we got when we paid our ticket for Leannes trunkshow. It is so beautiful and I certainly will stitch this. But that will be when we are going to spring in march/april next year. Leanne made this for us because in Aussie they have spring now.
Leanne showing her 365 Challenge quilt. I haven't started on it.

And here is her Butterfly Garden Quilt. I ordered it yesterday from Honeysuckle Cottage and will get the first block in december. I look forward to that :)
And then Leanne wanted a show and tell with quilts we have made from her patterns.
Me showing Monika's quilt. She could not be with us, but had posted her quilt to me to bring it for Leanne to see.
May Kristin showing her two quilts

Another lady had made Ruth's quilt from Leannes book Living the dream
Another beautiful version of Leannes House
Helle Løvenskiold version of A Quilters Journey
Hanne is showing her own pattern to Leanne. Seems they are having a good time.
And see........Leannes red shoes !!!
Here is Leanne together with the two shopowners who persuaded Leanne to come to Norway. And I do not think Leanne is regretting it. I know today she have been up in the mountain and have thrown snowballs.

Hanne and I have had some great days together. Both at my place and of couse up in Trysil with Leanne. Tomorrow she is going home and I am going back to Trysil to stay there rest of the weekend. I will take photos of our exhibition that you probably have seen in the background of some photos and probably more photos of Leanne and the other girls staying in Trysil this weekend.
Saying for today:
Anyone who says money can't buy happiness
doesn't know where to shop

Thanks for all the great pictures you've posted of Leanne's visit! I'm a *little* less envious . . . but not much. =) It looks as if you all had a fabulous time, and I love the spring block she designed for all of you . . . and your quilt label!
