At the cabin

Home again after a long weekend at the cabin. Bags are unpacked, blogs and mails are read. We have had some great days together.Every time we go to these sewing together weekends we have had wonderful weather. This time too. Rain during the night, but sun in daytime. So we have spendt a lot of time outside stitching.

And long walks in the woods. Look what we found. The mountain cranberries (tyttebær in norwegian) was ready to be picked.

And so we did.

A big bowle filled with these delicious red berries.



And now we could make my favorite dessert Trollcream. You just wipe the white of the egg together with suger very stiff and then add the red berries.

Yummy yummy yummy

and look at the wonderful pink colour!!

Ready to eat. Have to admit I ate toooooooooo much.

Not only dessert, but also these delicious cake.

Did we sew anything this weekend

take a look......


Every one of us had brought a lot of projects. Some ufo's, some new projects, a lot of fabric, patterns and books. So there was plenty of work for everyone. This is what we had for show and tell right before leaving the cabin.

And this was my projects for the weekend.
Finished the stitching on one of the cupcake wallhangings.
Started two small purses from a japaneese book.

And almost finished four of these thread bins with pincushions. Just have to fill birdsand in the pincushions.

Feel I have been very lazy this long weekend. Just eating, sleeping, laughing and a little bit of sewing. But think that was good for my neck which is feeling much better now. Time together with good quilt friends is great.

Starting tomorrow to do some serious cleaning up in my sewingroom LOL Now it's just a mess.


Saying for today:

- A friend is a person who goes around,
saying nice things about you behind your back

Det ser ut til at dere har hatt en riktig trivelig helg. Og så mye flott dere har produsert. Festet meg spesielt med teppet som henger på ytterdøra. Er det hytta di?

Looks like a fun time was had by all. It must be wonderful to get together with like-minded people who enjoy the same things that you do. It looks like you were able to accomplish so many projects while you were there. The desserts look delicious too.
Take care.

Oh it just all looks SO good. I love all the sewing that happened and the look of that cake - yummy and the sunshine and the 'trollcream'. I can remember picking cranberrys in Norway when I was 7 (so yes a very long time ago) and this post brought back so many memories. Thank you!
