I'm back

It has been four hectic but fun days at the annual meeting in the Norwegian Quilt Association. Bout 300 registrated members and 400 daily visitors. All over the hotel you could see and hear happy ladies with their beutiful bags. I had brought my new bag to the meeting and it was a success. Never have so many ladies stopped me asking...."are you abyquilt " and "look at that bag".

A lot of shops had brought their fabrics, books, patterns and notions. Will give you a lot of photos from the shopearea later. Just have to sort them first.

Did I buy something?????????????

Of course!!!!!!!!!!! Has there ever been a quiltlady to a quiltfestival not buying anything??????

This is the goodies that came home with me. I had to buy the new wool stitchery batting. It feel so soft and I talked to several ladies that had tried this already and it was wonderful they told me. So I look forward to try it. A piece of new thin habalon batting for a new bag. Two kits that I just had to have. One yard of wonderful lace with small buttons on. And of course some fabric.

And I could not resist this new BOM "Autumn Houses" from Bunny Hilll design. I bought it from the shop Quiltefryd , (just discovered that they have their own blog). She is sending the two first blocks in the mail today, so I will soon be working on these BOM too. I just loved the fabrics and colours in this BOM.............a must have project.

Now I am unpacking my bags and repacking them again. Would rather stay home now because I am so tired of hotels and hotelfood, but I am going away for some days on a conference at work. See you soon with more photos from the quilt festival.

Saying for today:

I regret not buying this sign when I found it at the festiva. But I know where to get it LOL
