This weekend I was in Oslo to celebrate midsummer. But it rained and rained all weekend. So no BQ, only schrimps and white wine in front of the tv. When I first was in Oslo I had to visit Katrines Quiltstue. There I met my friend Kristin. She is also a quilter (mostly crazy quilting) and she is also in the board of The Norwegian Quilters Association. Kristin in the front and Katrine who owns this quiltshop behind the counter cutting fabrics.
The quilt hanging over the door is parts from a Bareroot Pattern. And I want to make this one.
I was very very clever this time. I bought only fabrics I have a plan with. The one to the left is going to be in my christmas table cloth I started on in mai. The other one I meant go go with the Lecien fabrics I got for christmas last year.
But when I placed the bundle of Lecien fabrics on top of the newly bought fabric, I don't think it looks like what I have intended. It is too "dark". I have to look for a lighter fabric. Not clean white, but a bit more white than this. I want it to be the background fabric and this one is too similar to the colurs in the bundle. And I bought 1.5 m of this fabric. So I have to look further for the prefect fabric. So this project have to wait. And I who finally had decided what to do!!!!! Typical. Yesterday I visited my friend Laila in Trysil. I helped her to start blogging. So please visit her blog Jacobs Quilt and wish her welcome to blogworld. She is a very skilled quilter and she has sooooooo many lovely things to show you. So please encourage her to continue with her blog. Laila....here is the quilting smiley we were looking for yesterday.
And please forgive me.........
It looks like I won another give away over at Caroles blog Quilting adventures. I am a very lucky girl right now, so I think I have to buy a lottery ticket. I'm a bit embarrassed winning twice, but I guess we all have the same fair chance to win when we post a comment on giveaways.
I got a mail from Tanya. Her prize in my give away has already reached Japan. Only one week since I posted it. This time the postman travelled fast.
Saying for today:
Anyone who says money can't buy happiness
doesn't know where to shop
You all know what I mean.
