I am sitting here, tired and soon ready for a long nights sleep, looking back on a great weekend. I have spent it in good company, celebrating my friend Bente and learning from Hanne how to make caleidoscopeblocks.
Of course, the birthday girl got lots of wonderful presents. I gave her the 3-tier cakestand with lots of quiliting goodies on.
Hello! Look at this jewel!! I just had to show you the beautiful quilt Inger Solveig (no blog) brought along to show us. I think this is one of the most beautiful quilts I have ever layed my eyes on so far. The quilt is handsewed, and the colours are so well put together. I want to make a quilt like that!
The quilt was admired for a long time, here you see Tove and the genious, Inger Solveig.
A bit crowded, but no complaints. It was especially nice to meet up with Tove again. She has been living in Spain for a while, but is finally back. I told her it was not a good environment for her sewing machine, all that salt in the air. She is back for good, and we are all thrilled.
(PS. Check out May Britts blog. She got a sensational picture of a very special cutting position. Is it the Spanish style, ??)
I hadn`t done my homework, and was a little bit behind the other girls when I arrived on Saturday morning. I got this fix idea that if I cut six layers at the time I would catch up with the others. This was not a great idea! I ended up with like ten different sizes, and couldn`t get accurate blocks. And yes, I did cut up all the fabrics! There was only one solution - I got in the car, drove to Lappemakeriet and purchased new fabrics. At the end of the day, while the others had sewn up to forty blocks, I ended up with three :) Only 39 to go!!
A successful day was ended with a successful meal. Bente served crabclaws and shrimps - yummm delicious. We ate for hours, until we were full, and then we ate som more. I didn`t get hungry again until noon today LOL
PS. I am closing in on 10 000 hits, and is planning my very first giveaway!
Have fun sewing!
