A little visit to Trondheim

Saturday I went for a little trip to Trondheim. A about five hours drive from where I live to where my DD live. I was going to help her home for the holiday, and loaded the car full of her things. But not only "work". We also went to town and had a great time.

And I got time to visit Quiltegården.
One of my favorite quiltshops.

It's always so nice to come her.
And there is a lot of temptations

And Siw the owner of the shop is always smiling
and showing me things I did not know I had to have.


And this is the purchases for this weekend. "The little book of angels" (I have been looking at this book on net) and it has so many cute littel angel stitcheries. A box for buttons. Embroidery and quilting needles and a new pigma pen. And a new stitcherybatting, looking forward to try this one. I know what I want, so I hope this will work. And my DD picked this cute photo and two fabrics. So now I have to make her a new makeup purse.
Saying for today:
Friends are kisses
blown to us by angels.

WOW, and lucky you who can visit Siw when it isn't to crowd. Than again, it is probably the best for my wallet. Nice goodies you bought, and I agree you needed that stuff :o)

Hi May,
rowing man and I visited Trondheim in 2004, so what a shame I did not know of you then, we had a week in Trondheim while Tim was at a conference - it was an absolutely wonderful place to be. and of course I found Quiltegarden! We took the Hirtegruten coastal steamer from Tromso to Trondheim over 4 days I think it was, we have Danish friends who lived just outside of Trondheim, and have now moved back to Denmark. I did so like Oslo also! You live in a very beautiful country, some parts are very similar to Fiordland in NZ,
have fun, Shiree
