Getting ready for a big event

Sorry folks, I know it has been a while since my last post. Surgery (nothing serious) followed by a flue has kept me away from my computer. I am slowly getting better, which is about time since I am leaving for the annual meeting at the Norwegian Quilt Association this upcoming weekend. The event is taking place in my hometown Tromsoe, way up north. I haven`t been back for years, so I am looking forward to the trip.

I made this cute stitchery bag today. It fits perfectly in the bag I am bringing with me on the trip. It is a AnnAKa design (no blog or homepage). I am not taking any classes, so I have to bring a stitchery or I`ll go mad ;)

There are six pockets in the bag. I have filled one with lovely Cosmo embroidery thread, another with needles, and a thread cutter is attached to a velvet pink ribbon. I love the Cosmo thread, it is smooth like silk, and has a lovely shine.

We are fortunate to have this hobby, especially in these trying times. My heart aches for the Japanese people. I visited a Japanes blog today, her house was devistated, but her spirit was not. She and a friend was quilting again :)

Have fun sewing!
