Weekend shopping

A weekend in Oslo, visiting my DS and his girl and meeting his MIL for the first time.

And of course I took the bus early to Oslo so I could spend some time visiting one of my favorite shops Katrines Quiltestue. Take a look at these photos and you understand why I love this shop. I promised Stina I should take some photos ...........I know she's so wanting to go to this shop. So Stina, you just have to plan a trip to visit me, promise to take you shopping in several quiltshops.





It is filled with beautiful fabrics, patterns, samples and inspiration.

I spendt several hourse there yesterday and this is what I bought. I was looking for polkadots and ric-rac for the new swap I have joined, and I found this. Know exactly what to make for my swap partner, I don't know who it is yet, but I hope she likes brown and pink. But perhaps I change my mind when I learn who she is, maybe she loves other colours.

I bought this booklet too. It is Natalie Birds newest booklet...................

and look at this quilt inside the book. Perfect for a quilter. There were a lot of other patterns for small quilting items also in this book. You know understand why I had to have this book.
I also bought a Tilda stitchery , some Tilda fabrics and ricracs at Panduro. And a little cute pencile tube.

Several girls are sending me photos of the Stitchers' Angels sewingbag and I will show you them in another post later. So please send me more photos. I love to see how you bags looks like :)

Saying for today:

Anyone who says money can't buy happiness
doesn't know where to shop.

Qualitytime behind the royal castle! This new book of yours, hmmm. I received an invitation from Kathrine to a Lise Bergene meeting, but as I'm 50 km away, I don't think I'll reach it. Did you see Lise's book? Did you like it?

Pat said...

Oh my, what a beautiful shop to visit. I love your goodies that you purchased. That book looks very interesting. I may have to look into buting this one!

That shop looks wonderful. I love Tilda!!! Wish we got that here. Thanks for joining my swap!!

Noémia said...

I envy you! Here we don't have any shop like that,... sorry, there isn't a single shop who sells anything for patchork! Only some little shops on-line with some fabrics and nothing more!That's why I have to shop from New Zeland and Australia!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

What a delightful shop. It is light and airy. I hate when a quilt shop is dark - you can't see true color. How fun for you.

Jane said...

The windows in that shop are lovely. It appears to be in a lovely older building. What a delightful place to go exploring.
You did exercise great restraint, but I like what you did buy.
Hope the MIL meeting went well.

Susan said...

The nice thing about seeing pictures like this is that I know I could walk into that shop, not speak a word of the language, and still walk out with a melted credit card and lots of goodies. =)

Bente said...

Du er så flink til å ha med deg fotoapparatet, May Britt. (og tilogmed huske å bruke det :-)))
Jeg er stadig innom sidene dine for å kikke, det er alltid så mye koselig å se

Ineke van den Akker said...

Wow! Wishing I could be there!
