My shopping

Of course I manage to do some shopping during this weekend. There was so many temptations in the shops. And this is what came home with me.
Thread is a must to have for a quilter, and I found Cosmo thread, Yli silkthread and the Cottage garden thread. Look forward to start testing the cosmo thread. And of course some fabric came home with me and a Whimsical pattern book.
As you know we had Yoko Saito visiting our annual meeting, and I had to buy her book. I was so lucky to join her class as a reporter for our magazine, and I got the kit for the bag they was making. And I look forward to use the four in one tool Yoko always are using.

My best buying was a new otlite lamps.

I also got some gifts during this weekends. Thank you all of you
(you know who you are :)

And I love the Tutto bag I got. Now I can transport my sewingmachine in a safe way:)

This was my last meeting as a member in the board of the Norwegian Quilters Association. After 7 years in the board it was time for me to pass it over to another lady. Next year I will visit only as a guest and I really look forward to just calm down and enjoy it all.

And now I will continue on my focus projects. Still have some quilting to do on my easter bunnies. Hope to have it up on the wall this spring.

Tomorrow quiltmeeting in my local quiltgroup.

Saying for today:

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

Tusen takk for flotte bilder
Husker du av hvem du kjøpte Yli-silketråden? Kanskje en nettadresse? Gratulere med 7år for nqf. Håper du får masse tid til å gjøre det du ønsker.
