A visit to the quiltshop

Today it is Siv Hege 40th birthday and what's better for a quilter to celebrate this day than to visit a quiltshop. So all four of us (Siv Hege, Hanne, Bente and me) found our way to visit Lappemakeriet. It is a wonderful shop with a lot of inspiration. So just enjoy the photos from the shop and get inspired.






Two happy shoppers looking at all the goodies.


And the birthday girl deeply lost in a new quiltbook.

And me looking so sad,
because I wanted all the fabrics,
but I knew my wallet said no.

So much goodies to look at.

Siw Hege still lost in those new quiltbooks.




Saying for today:

Stitch your stress away.

Visiting a quilt shop is the best! I don't like any other stores any more. I hate to go clothing shopping. What am I going to do? We are hopeless!!

I went to that shop when I visited last week, it was great.

I like the snowball design quilt best. It is a setting that, though simple, is very striking.

What a wonderful trip to the quilt shop! You could spend hours. Like you May Britt I want to take all the fabrics home. Did Siv end up buying that book I wonder?

Happy Stitching....Ann :)
