Now I am finally home after a wonderful quilt weekend in Norway together with my friends, Stina and Louise ..
The journey started last Thursday when I picked up Stina by car to continue about 47 mil to Östersund.

Louise who had not returned from Crete had done so beautiful welcome baskets to Stina and me. It was filled with home-made apple sauce, hand cream from France, wonderful soaps and picture magnet from Mary Engelbreit ..

As usual, it is so nice to come home to Louise and see their cozy home with a completely wonderful quilts ..
Some of these I was able to enjoy:)

On Friday morning Lousie came home and basically it was just to fix itself, changing bag and pack the quilt stuff.

Shortly after 12 o’clock we went to Trondheim to attend a course with these girls …

Last fall I write about the school I had started. Last week I started the course 2 of which I did last fall .. It was nice to meet all new classmates who come from all of  Sweden .. At our meeting last week we made a study visit with guided tour at Umedalens sculpture park ..

What did we more? We had a workshop there we have 3 options to work with fabrics. One of them was to shrink a fabric (50cm*50cm) with needle and thread  to a size of 20 cm x 20 cm. That was no problem but to do it the opposite ie to make a piece of  fabric on the 25cm x 25cm to double the size was more difficult 😉 Some of my classmates did  great work 🙂
uppgifter1That was my last week and this week that comes I have a lot of schoolwork to do and  continue with my secret gifts to a couple of friends ..
Thanks for dropping by…
