Long time no blogging :)

Gosh...it is two weeks since my last post. I have been so busy this two weeks. Next weekend we are going to our annual quilt meeting in the Norwegian Quilt Association. A lot of planning to get the best for all the ladies who are comming. So there has been a lot of mailing between us in charge of the event.

One of the things I am in charge of is all the things that's going to be in the "goodie-bag" all the registered ladies will get.
Since I am so lucky to see the goodies in advance, I have already tested one of the "goodies". Will show you later this weekend, because it still have to be a secret.

Some ordered goodies also arrived in my mailbox.

And finally I can make this pillow. I bought this pattern while Lynette visited Norway, and I have waited for so long to get the fabrics for it. So when it starts to calm down, I will start making this pillow.

I also finished another secret today. Hanne, Bente (no blogger) and I have a challenge going on. I was the first one to make the challenge. They got a cute button and some ribbon and was told to make a little quilt 8 x 8 inches. And next weekend we will meet and reveal our small quilts, and then I will show you.

I have also done some sloooooooow work on my Bread and Butter quilt. Just one row and the corners to finish.

I really look forward to easter with some days home from work. Hope to get a lot of sewing done. And I promise to blog more often :)

But first our annual quilt meeting.
Almost 400 quilt ladies together a whole weekend.
A lot of quilts in our exhibition
A lot of quiltshops to spend money in
Meeting good friends
Meeting new friends
Meeting Yoko Saito
A lot of inspiration
A lot of laughter


Saying for today:

The time to relax is when you don't have time for it.

Your Bread and Butter quilt is looking fantastic. You must be very pleased with it.

Sounds like a very busy but fun filled weekend coming up. 400 women! No wonder you have been too busy to blog. I hope you have a great time and are not too run off your feet.

Gleder meg til helgen, og håper jeg får møtt deg. Jeg kan være din personlige assistent! Komme med mat og drikke, og plaster hvis du skulle begynne å blø :)

God tur til årsmøte. Jeg skulle ha vært der, men helsa sier stopp. Så da blir det å nyte bilder og tekst etterpå. Regner med at du har en utførlig beskrivelse i tekst og bilder fra årsmøte i etterkant. Kos deg innimellom all jobbinga.

It's been a busy time for you, May Britt. I can't wait for you to share your sneak peek surprises with us.

Your bread and butter quilt is amazing now, even before it's finished. Great job!
