Weekend in Tønsberg

I'm away this weekend too. Now at a meeting with the Norwegian Quilt Association planning next years annual meeting at BCC. Ladies, it is going to be a great place to meet 3rd weekend in march, so start planning this weekend already.

But of course we could not sit in the conference room all day planning, we had to do some serious shopping too. And first place we visited was Quiltefryd.

And take a look at that cute red sign below her firm sign. Love it.
It is a wonderful shop filled with inspiration, so let's take a look.



They got a lovely room for workshops in the basement.


And a wonderful inspiration "room" where we can sit down, have a cup of coffee and just get inspired of all the patterns hanging around the wall.



The next place we went to was Lines Hobby. This is also a lovely shop with a lot of inspiration.





I know I will come back and visit both these shops. They were great.

After the shop hop it was time for workshop. I was the teacher this time and I was going to show them how to make scrappy hearts. You can get a glimps of the scrappy heart quilt hanging on the wall in the background.




Never has these ladies been sooooo quiet for so long time. They were so concentrated, and during the evening/night the hearts started to pop up.



And now the main question.....did I buy something in those two shops. Oh yes......

I can show you these 5 fabrics and the package with red buttons. The rest has to be a secret, knowing Hanne, Nancy and Bente is reading my blog. Soon christmas you know :)
Now heading for breakfast, then some more scrappy heart sewing and then home sweet home.
Saying for today:
Girls just wanna have fun

Dette ser flott ut! Håper jeg kommer meg dit, men jeg frykter for at det kolliderer med turen til Pennsylvania. Synd :-|

3. helga i mars, greitt! Med 5 konfirmantar i nær slekt/fadder i mai, spørs det om eg har råda, men har forferdeleg lyst, trur faktisk eg MÅ. Visste ikkje at der var ein stoffbutikk til i Tønsberg-området...visst du Hanne? Quiltefryd er jo berre fantastisk, og skiltet utanfor til å dåne av! Veit du kven som har designa quilten med den svarte fulgen, i primitiv stil? Og hjarta dine slo an, det er ikkje tvil om det. Kanskje du også tek turen over Langfjella ein gong?
