Leanne in Trysil

Yesterday Leanne and Rohan arrived Trysil. They checked in at the hotel and then walked over to Laila's house for dinner. They were served moose for main corse and cloudberry cream for dessert. They loved both dishes. First time eating this kind of food. Here you can see Laila, Me, Leanne, Rohan and Siw around the table. We had a great time together.

Today I had brought my Leannes House and of course Leanne had to look at it. Here she is sitting behind my Leannes House to the left and Hannes to the right.
And look what she did. She wrote a label for me to put behind my quilt when it's finished. And I promised I finish it for tomorrow LOL . I have to get the outer border on and then baste it. And then I'm going to handquilt it. So it will take some time before I can put mine and Leannes label on the back. I'm so proud to have this label from her..........LOOK :)
Today we was having a class where we was going to make "The Frienship Basket". Leanne is a great teacher and are always having a smile on her face. Here she is telling us how to do needleturn applique.
And the whole class showing how far we got this day. This was a very small class, only eight ladies. I guess it was because it was in the middle on the week and most of the ladies is arriving on friday when she is having "Sit down and sew with Leanne"-class and another trunkshow. And the weekend class is full. But we had a great day with Leanne. And I feel we got special service.
Saying for today:
Blessings come in many ways...
The nicest come as friends
