Design By Me fair

Yesterday I had the day off from work and together with 3 other quilting friends we went off to visit the Design By Me fair at Lillestrøm.  The fair is open this whole weekend, so if you are close to Lillestrøm, I recomend a visit.

We knew there was to be several quiltshops among other craft shops at the fair.  So of course we had to go there to check out and get inspired......and maybe do some shopping.  

Quiltefryd from Tønsberg was there with lots of inspiration. 

Love the quilt in the middle of the photo.

A lot to see and shop at Kathrines Quiltestue.

I also met my friend Hanne and we had a lovely chat with Wenche from Northern Quilts.  Wenche had not brought her shop with her this time, but she is the editor for Quiltemagasinet and she was advertising for the magazine this time.

My local quilt shop Kreative Ingema was also at the fair.  I am so happy we have this quiltshop close to where I live.

There was some other quiltshops there too, and a lot of other craft shops.  But I was so busy looking and chatting with friends so I forgot to take photos.

And with all the temptations there had to be some shopping. So this is what came home with me  + some lefse that is already in the freezer. 

I am looking forward to try these machine quilting rulers.  Just have to wait for the needed quilting foot for my sewing machine.  Have ordered it and will have it in a week or so.  

A great day + good friends = a lot of vitamin Q,

Weekend at the cabin

Last thursday, after august quilt meeting (will blog about that in another post) I drove up to the cabin in Evensberget to have a long weekend with 6 other ladies.  The car filled with projects as always.

It is a small cabin, but we make the most of the space we have. Everyone is sewing on several projects, both by sewing machine or hand sewing.  

This time I felt for sewing on my new stitchery and I manage to finish the august block. (shown to the left). And did a few stitches on the september block.  I also did one needleturn applique for my Gossip In The Garden quilt.

And a few more shoo fly blocks for my blue quilt.
