A trip to the capital

For my birthday I got from my children two tickets to a christmasshow in Oslo. And yesterday was the day I and Irene (no blogger) took the earlybus to Oslo. We wanted to spend the whole day in Oslo, eat dinner with my DS and do some shopping, before we went to see the show. And we had a wonderful day, even if my feet are sore with blisters from all the walking (so today I am wearing soft slippers)

One of the shops we visited was Kathrines Quiltestue. This is my first visit to her new shop.
And I must say it is one of my favorite quiltshops. So let's have a look around:




I really love the quilt hanging on the wall

So let's have a close up.
Really thinking hard on making this one.



And here is the shop owner herself.
Always smiling and very helpful.


I had one mission visiting this quiltshop.
Finding red christmas fabrics for a project.
And this is waht I bought.
Some lovely new japaneese fabrics and some laces


and just ONE RED fabric.
So now I will put my soft slippers on
and slippers into the sewingroom.
Have som projects on my sewingmachine.
Will show you later.
Saying for today:
Thoughts come cleary
while one walks

I love that quilt too.. you certainly wouldn't want to have my fear of triangles if you wanted to make it!
Sounds like you had a wonderful time, even though you got blisters..

Høres ut som dere hadde en fantastisk dag. Morro å se den nye butikken til Kathrine - der skulle jeg gjerne ha vært.... Flotte stoffer du fikk med deg hjem!

What a nice shop, I specially like the corner with the heart projects in it. And you were very economical only buying these few fabrics. I bet it was hard to resist
