Selvlagede potetlefser fra Valle i Setesdalen. Nyderlig med smør,sukker og kanel. Hmm de lokale damene, som var våre lærermestere denne dagen, skjønte ikke så mye av det med kanelen da ..

The pinwheel quilt / Moda Bakeshop

A new quilt has been finished, though it has been done for a while but I have not shared this with you.
I have found the pattern at Moda Bakeshop here.
The designer are Pauline Francis at Quiltnqueen.
Quiltekunst / Britta have quilted this quilt very beautifully. Love it !
It was a very fun project and I must say that I never get tired of finding patterns at Moda Bakeshop and the best part is that all the pattern are free at no cost :-).
Have anyone else made a Mode Bakeshop project lately? Please share ..

A new bag, 12 years old UFO :-)

It has taken me 12 years to finish this bag so you might say that it is an UFO. UFO= Unfinished Object, right ?
I have a good friend who is turning 60 years old this month, so the bag is a gift for her and the colors are just perfect for her style. I really hope she likes it !
The bag are designed by a danish designer : Bente Birk.

I am off today to a girl night out in the mountains. I am going to Nomeland Gård in Valle Setesdalen. You can find a link here and here.
The other girls left yesterday so I am a bit late for all the fun but I really hope to enjoy a lovely dinner tonight and to join " Lefsekurs" tomorrow.
No sewing this weekend but next weekend I will be joining in on Norwegian Quilt Festival at Gardermoen. You will find me there Thursday joining Sue Daley for the Marmalade quilt (English paper piecing) and Friday joining Camille Roskelley for one of her mini quilts. A lot of my quilting friends will be there and I am so looking forward to this event !
Busy times, yes it is !!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend !

I bought the fabrics from Quiltekunst in Kristiansand. It is a very smooth and calm range and it is perfect with frames of off white.
Today I am busy quilting a 12 year old UFO,Yohoo and at last I found out how to finish it of.I will show you later some other day. I am having fun and i hope you are too !

Do anyone know how I can find out if my blog is running full of pictures ?

Cushion #2 Moda Bakeshop and 1 table runner

This cushion and table runner are made for my oldest daughter Marit. She is moving in with her boyfriend and she wanted a Lexington Pillow but that is too expensive for 2 students.
I made her this cushion instead and she was very happy. The table runner are just 2,5" X 2,5" pieces sew´n together.
I have found the pattern at Moda Bakeshop and you can find the links to both the pattern and Designer in my privies post.

Lunch with a Dear friend

Today is my last day on vacation. I spent it with my dear friend Linda. 
We went to a new cafe in town. It happens to be in one of Kristiansand oldest houses. 
A very sweet cafe and well worth visiting if you ever happen to be in town. It is very well restored to its old glory and you can also see the old outhouse.
