Summary of 2011



As you all know my Christmas gift 2010 from my children was Rusken.  So in january when it was SO cold outside we just stayed inside.  Had to teach him how to be a quilters cat, and he was a fast learner.  He loves to cuddle up in in my quilts, and we was having a great time in the sewingroom.



Not much happening in the sewingsroom. But I manage to sew a new weekendbag.   I love this bag and have used it a lot.



Big happening in march when I went to the Norwegian Quilters Associations annual quilt meeting in Tromsø.  We had a lot of fun and got a lot of inspiration from the shop who was attending.  And have to admit a lot of fabric, kits and patterns came home with me.  Some wonderful days with good friends, and I have already bought the plane ticket  and reserved hotelroom to go to Bergen in march 2012



I got to meet Sue Daley!!!!!  How fun is that. She gave us al so much inspiration and I have started several of her projects.  Have I finished them???   Nope…..but I have to before september when she is coming back to Norway. 



Started to sew on the to Christmasgifts for my children.  Two big quilts called “Svennebrevet” (design Lappemakeriet).  And I got a lot done when we had our quilt weekend at the cabin.



At this time I got the big UFO-agony.  Counting my projects and planning which one to give focus.  And I really manage to stay focused and ended up with 8 finishes this summer.  And my DD moved back home from school.



I started my Tour de Fibre and tried to blog every day along with Tour de France, but then horror struck Norway with the  bombing in Oslo and killing out on Utøya.  At times like this I am glad I have my sewing.



Another visit to the cabin with good friends.  Still focusing on old projects.



My Quilt Guild went on a fun and inspiring quilt trip to Tønsberg.  We had so much fun and I know the ladies had a great day filled with vitamin Q.



Was a sad month for my family.  My mother passed away.  She was the one who inspired me to do all kind of sewing, knitting aso.  And I miss her so much.  But I smile when I think about all the good memories we have together.



Another trip to the cabin.  This time we had no electricity for a whole day, not possible to stitch in the light of candles.  But luckily it came back and we got a  lot of sewing done.



A lot of secret sewing for the SSCS and christmas gifts for my children and then baking Christmas cakes with my friend Hanne.  Spending time with my family is the most precious for me.  We got to celebrate two Christmas Eve’s this year, because my DS and his girlfriend was going on a vacation, leaving on Christmas Eve, so we celebrated one weekend earlier.

I want to wish all my visitors


An I look forward to see you all in 2012.

Saying for today:

Cheers to a new year
and another chance for us to get it right.

What a great summary May-I like the idea of "another chance to get it right", and I love the idea of the "Cabin"

Alltid moro å se året som gikk i bilder, kan konstantere at du har vært produktiv :o)

Rusken er helt klart min favoritt for 2011! Og jeg likte Tour de fibre også - fantastisk påfunn! Blir dette arrangert i 2012 også??

Ønsker deg alt god for 2012 ♥
