Summerholiday - Big Plans .....

Summer is here!? A little lie actually,for at the moment I think the whole of Norway is waiting for that special time of the year with warm and sunny days,one day after the other. Planning what to do if the rain really sets in.

Yes,I have been packing. This little suitcase was given to me by my good quilting-friend, Berit/"symejl". Not that we are off flying with Bear-line! But in fact we did rent a lovely cottage down south of Norway. Below you can see what has been packed in it to secure me a lovely stitching holiday! May be I`ll stay for a longer time than predicted to finish it all? Time will show,and if you just check me out now and then in the next month you may find out! Please do not be disapointed if I have nothing to show back home again :))

Lovely "A Gardener`s Journal" by Annie Downs at H&P is definitely not forgotten. Never bring the sewing machine along,so I decided to stitch a wee bit during the holiday.

"Butterfly Garden" by Leanne B is also with me this summer. I have really been inspired by Kris+May Britt+Hanne to get cracking on this quilt/stitchery. I have the stitchery for block 2 and block 8 here;just the drawing to do before I can start.

Another lovely stitchery to be done: "Flowers for Erica". When I went to class with Leanne B last year. She showed us this pretty table-runner. I decided it would be a lovely summer holiday stitchery. So in January Sarah of QFD Creative made me a kit. Now it will be this summer`s main stitchery.

Hope you all will enjoy this time of the year. Well, being a whole-of-the-world-blogger, I know some of you really are having the coldest weather of the year.
So I say to you Happy Quilting all my blog-friends :O)

Ha en fin tur - håper finværet holder på Sørlandet! (send gjerne litt vestover,da?) Mye lekkert du har med deg - blir spennende å se hvor mye du får gjort.
