A wonderful gift

Now the BIG party is over and almost all guests are gone home. I had a wonderful time with my friends yesterday. When I read my horoscope saturday morning I got a little bit "scared". The horoscope told this:

Translated to english (sort of): "You have to take a lot of unexpected things today, and you will get a little bit unsecure because you have not had the time to plan it. Never the less you will just do good from this, let yourself loose. Dare to laugh of yourself"

Så what to expect :)

A lot of fun surprises from my friends. Speaches, songs, games and just a lot of laughter.

The horoscope came true......indeed :)

One of the wonderful surprises was a quilt made from friends all over the world.


Look at all these wonderful leaves.

Made by:

and Bente, Britt S, Britt E and Bjørg (no bloggers)

Merete has done some wonderful quilting on it.

I am told there still are some blocks on their way, but they did not arrive in time to be a part of this quilt. But when they come to me I will make something from them.


The quilt is now hanging over my favorite sewing chair
and I will treasure it for ever.

Saying for today:

Friends are the most
important ingredient
in this recipe of life

Gratulerer med dagen! Godt at høstløvteppet falt i smak! Takk til Inger Lise for den gode idèen!

Gratulerer med overstått feiring! Så bra at du likte teppet! Det var litt spanande å finne att sitt eige lauv i teppet... Prøvde å klikke i biletet med det som stod på baksida, men fekk det ikkje større av ein eller annan grunn, hadde vore artig å kunne lese kva der stod.
Ja, så er det ned på jorda igjen då, ha ei riktig fin veke!
