Friend visiting

As I told in my previous post I was expecting a visit from Hanne. We met at the quiltshop (of course) when I came home from work. After some shopping (not me!!!!) we went home to my place.
We had a lovely time out on the porch. It was hot summer temperature and we sipped to our redwine while chatting and stitching. Notice the little doll on the table. I guess Hanne will tell more about her soon. The doll is soooooooooo beautiful and I must admit I got a little hooked on having one too. I guess some of you quilters will recognize this doll because when I watched all the photos from Hannes trip to usa I noticed several ladies at the quiltmeeting had some of these dolls. Please tell me more about them :)
Hanne and Frida is very good friends and was having a good time together.
While out on the porch we did some stitching and I worked on my Butterfly Garden block number 3. This is what I've managed to do this weekend. Not so much stitching because.......
I had my brothers grandchildren staying with me this weekend. We had a lot of fun. Playing, eating pizza and of course today we went bathing. The water was so nice so even I jumped into the water. I wish I had all the energy these two kids have. I'm exhausted having them around me LOL , but I look forward to next time because they are such two lovely kids.

Saying for today:

The best thing to spend on kids is time

For ei flott helg dere har hatt. Her har det gått litt i eksamenslesing, men ikke så mye som det burde. Lite tid med symaskinen. Ha ei flott uke.

I love everything quilting but I love cats more. The picture of Frida and Hanna is really cute! If cats could smile, there would be one on Frida's face because she's really loving that head massage.
