Summer Shop Hopping

For several years me and three other friends have had a summer shop hopping.  And today was the day we went for the 2014 shop hopping.   Up early to get ready and by 08:00 we was on our drive to the first stop.

Of course some sewing in the car.  I manage to sew one TGWT hexagon.

First stop was at Stoff og Stil.  I bought zippers and a lot of glue for my gluepen. In and out in just 15 minutes because we had more interesting places to visit.

Next stop was at Kathrines Quiltestue.  Always a joy to come to this quiltshop.

And when the sewing ladies had left we was able to walk around in the room to have a look at the exhibitiion of old quilts.

Then we was on our way to the nest stop on our shop hopping. And some quick lessons in how to use the glue pen in the back seat.

Last shop to visit on our tour was Hadeland Glassverk.

Finally time for dinner at Oldermors Karjol.  As you see we got heavy rain and thunder, but we was able to get a table just under the roof so we was happy to eat outdoors.

Back home after being on the road for over 12 hours.  Overloaded with inspirationg and good memories.  Good to relax out on the porch with a glass of white wine and looking at my goodies.  Have a lot of ideas for some EPP projects here.

Thank you Irene, Britt and Bjørg (who drove the whole day) for a wonderful shop hopping day.  Already looking forward to next years trip.

Saying for today:

I am curious do you find more quilters in Norway do hand work or machine work - from what I see in the shops you show a lot looks like hand work - :) love it

So much fun! You all had a fantastic time. Looove those old quilts in that shop and the house one. So many lovely things to see and do. I hope the glue pen didn't end up sticking your fingers together in the back seat there. Clever ladies managing to stitch while travelling. Those meals look HUGE! Enjoy your summer while I am listening to the rain with the hesting on here.

I love that you take photos inside of quilt shops and share them especially since they are quilt shops I will never get to see. Thanks! Love your blog!
