This is my SSCS presents for Rebecca/ Homestead Quilting. I had a lot of fun making the bag and buying the little extra gifts.
The bag are The Oak Park Bag, designed by Stephanie/ Loftcreation. The bag pattern is so sweet and comes together very easily.I have plans to make more of them ;-))
The sign says:
"Shoot for the moon- even if you miss, you will land among the stars"
Something to remember!!
Dette er SSCS gavene jeg sendte til Rebecca / Homestead Quilting som var min swap partner fra Australia.
Vesken er designet av Stephanie/ Loftcreation. Mønsteret er veldig koselig og enkelt å sy. Jeg kommer nok til å lage flere av disse etterhvert ;-))
The Christmas ornament I made for Rebecca. It is to difficult to try to explain in english how I made them . Please forgive me.
Her er juledekorasjonen jeg laget til Rebecca. Veldig enkelt nesten som i gamle dager da vi laget julekurver i papir. Jeg brukte vanlig quiltestoff med fliseline bak.
Jeg brukte 2x stoffbit som var 35 cm x 4",delte så inn i 4 med 1" mellom. He he dette var ikke lett å forklare. Flett så kurvene , klipp rundingene på kurven med sikk sakk saks og sett på hank.
This is the bag i made for Rebecca.
This bag is made for me..

We arrived late yesterday afternoon at the cabin and it was already dark and a lot of snow! Where is the door. I sent my husband out of the car with the doorkey, hi hi..
We are going to spend Christmas at the cabin so we had a little bit of this and that to do. The cabin is now cleaned and decorated for Christmas ;-)
Today was a wonderful day outside with -5 Degreas Celcius and a wonderful sun made everything magic..I just had to show you pictures from my crosscountry skiing today. Enjoy !!
Vi kom opp på hytta i går ettermiddag, det var allerede mørkt og masse nysnø. Min mann var kjempesøt og krabbet opp i snøfonna for meg og fant døra. Jeg fikk alt på plass inne mens han skuffet snø. Vi skal feire snø her oppe så vi hadde en del å holde på med.
Nå er hytta vasket og pyntet til jul ;-)
I dag var det bare helt fantastisk her på Bortelid med - 5 grader og strålende solskinn. Det blinket i snøkrystaller og var helt magisk. Jeg måtte bare vise dere bilder fra skituren min i dag, de må nytes !!

Prins Albert Memorial Hyde Park
I had a wonderful trip to London last week and meet up with sweet Melanie at Euston Trainstation and we walked up to Camden Market. We had a wonder lunsj at a local pub in Camden before we went to see all the stalls at Camden Market. I did a few buyings for me and my daughters for Christmas..
Melanie was so sweet and we had a great time togehter. On our way back to Euston train station it started raining but either Melanie or me took any notice of it.
We spent a couple of ours chatting at a coffee shop and time did fly. We talked about almost everything and I had a wonderful time with her. She gave me some gifts for Christmas and later my birthday, I cannot show them yet ;-)) She also gave the most beautiful Christmas stitchery And I will show you next time I do a post..
I realy need to thank Melanie for taking the train back and fort for over 7 ours just to meet me. Thank you Melanie, I had a awesome time with you!! And I will love to go to Birmingham quilt Market some day with you and maybe some other quilt friends ;-))
