Lazy summer days

Feels so good to have some lazy summer days.  Have had summer vacation for a whole week now and still have two weeks left to just relax. I really needed some days off from work to get better from my vertigo.  The world has been spinning for some weeks, but I start to feel better now. 

The weather has been perfect. Sun and outdoor sewing.  Some thunder storms with rain, but then it is perfect to be in the sewingroom. 

The first days of my vacation Hanne came visiting me.  I really needed some vitamin Q.  And Hanne inspired me to start sewing some blocks for The Chapman Quilt.

This is like cady.  So fun to sew these cute blocks.  And digging through my scrapbox it is like meeting old friends again when I pick up fabrics.  

Then I visited my friend Irene at the cabin for some days.  Can  it be better than this??  With our sewingmachines out on the porch.  

Sewed this small pouch.  The pattern is Anni Downs, but I sewed it together my way.  This is the front......

.....and this is the back.

Visiting Kathrines Quiltestue some weeks ago I bought a new kind of batting and I made this bag at the cabin. Think I will love this bag because of the shape and the size.

We did not just sew this weekend. A little trip out on the mire to look for cloudberries.

Yummy......this is my favorite berries.

Quilters on a road trip

Every year at this time four friends are going on their roadtrip to some quiltshops.  And today was the day for this years roadtrip.

First stop was at Merethes Quilteloft.  No photos from this shop.  Still was a bit dizzy from my yesterdays migraine attack, so I just concentrated to get my batting and backing.  And a Sewlite for my sewingmachine!!!!!  I have had this on my wishlist for a long time.  No I can get wonderful sewinglight at my sewingmachine.

Next stop at Kathrines Quiltestue.  The shop opened again yesterday after having big water leak some months ago.  The shop is now so light and inviting, with lots of inspiring quilts on the walls and loads of temptations.

Always so nice to visit Kathrines Quiltshop.  

For lunch we drove to Svartskog Kolonial.  A little old shop changed into a cafetaria that serves sandwiches, soup and cakes. 

Look at those floor tiles.  Looks like a quilt.

Back home again with all my treasures.  

Thanks to Bjørg who was a exellent and safe driver. And thanks Britt and Irene for wonderful company.  A day filled with laughter, inspiration and fun...........and empty wallets LOL.
