Brrrrrr again

A little bit too cold this morning

Wish I could stay indoors in front of my fireplace sewing, but now I am ready to drive to work. I just think of those who have it even colder than this. Brrrrrrrrrrrr. But you know we are Norwegian Vikings :)

Got a new book in my mailbox yesterday. I ordered Yoko Saito's new book Taupe color study book. And I really should try to make a new bag in japanese taupes before going to our annual quilt guild meeting in march. Because, guess what, Yoko Saito is coming to our meeting to give a lecture and workshop. Looking forward to meet that lady. I so admire her work. But I will stay focused on my two projects this week as promised.

Saying for today:
May you have warm words on a cold evening,
a full moon on a dark night
and a smooth road all the way to your door.
- irish blessing quote-

Og jeg sitter her og syns at -24,4 er mere en kaldt nok. brrr....!
Det er greit å ha godt batteri på bilene nå.
Boka ser lovende ut. Nydelig applikasjon på fremsiden, er den like bra inni også ??

Hi May,

Thank you very much for your kind comment about my rag doll! When I see your temperature gauge, I know that we have it relatively easy!!

Can I ask where you managed to get the copy of Yoko Saito's book? I would so love a copy, but have found it really difficult to track it down and I do love her work. How lucky you are that Yoko is attending your quilt guild meeting - apart from your weather, I wish I could be there!!

Jeg sitter også her og synes -11,8 er iskaldt! Brrrr... Akkurat nå er jeg veldig heldig som kan sitte hjemme å sy foran peisen.

Jeg skjønner at jeg ikke må klage - bare - 8 idag. Boka ser spennende ut.

Hanne said...

It was "only" -21 degrees C here + wind.
The book is great - have you decided on which bag to make yet ?
The locks on my car do not work today, it is to cold!

Hos deg er det kaldt. Vi har 18.8 og jeg synes det er mega kaldt. Nydelig bok du har fått, lykke til. Jeg har også brodert Christmas Wish, men ikke montert det. Det skal bli kjekt å se arbeidet ditt ferdig. Ønsker deg en fin kveld :0)

Ja, det er kaldt - iskaldt! Godt du kan være inne og hygge deg med sytøyet ditt :-)

Here in Italy, in Rome, there are 12 degrees. I like to see what happens in other countries! And we think that an hour's difference.

I don't know how you go outside in that weather! It is going to be +33deg C here today. I have just washed the floor and I am dripping with sweat. Hope you don't get any frostbite on your sewing fingers.
