Yesterday was a perfect day, a workshop full of joy and also
listening to Anni Downs` show and tell in the evening was full of inspiration
We were about 170 quiltes who in the evening all cheered Anni 
the best we could :-) Here she is with Kathrine who arranged it all.

 2 turtles saying HI to each other ... lol ...
Yes, my one enjoying the friendship of the original one :-)
From Annis book " The Simple Life".

Nice picture always to be kept!

38 quilters joined the work class in the morning yesterday.
Some new and  some old quilter-friends around each of the 4 tables.
 Here you see Tia, May Britt, Hanne + Laila and Tonje
 her daughter, shareing  a corner on this table.
Lillian, Anni and Inger.

TINY TOWN TABLERUNNER - such a beautiful pattern, right up my alley!
Great technics were shown, must try to remember.....
I had a good start on the tiny houses, looking forward
   to showing you my finish one day ..... in the furture :))

An Angels Story Quilt from 2004. I have had the book ever since,
what a special feeling to see and touch the quilt for real. I have read the
sweet stories on each page in the book several times. One day ... may be .....

Lovely show and tell in two sessions at the work class and during
the evening. My 5 items were admired !! :)) And I finished
 the "a Gardener`s Journal" quilt in 2011 on Feb. 14th.
 I never thought I would be as lucky to show my quilt to the designer! 
Very proud I was, thanks for taking the photo, Anni :))

Hope you all blogger friends enjoyed reading my blog once more, 
tons of inspiraton inside me !  As May Britt might describe it :
 "Vitamin Q" has has filled my heart :-)
 All the best to you, till next time from Grethe xx

May Britt said...

Ja vi hadde virkelig en vitamin Q dag. Dette er en av mine favoritt designere og det var så gøy endelig å få møte henne. Må si at det spinner rundt i hodet nå med all inspirasjon.

Heldige du som fikk overvære dette! Anni lager jo så masse flott! Jeg hadde kursplass på Quiltegården, men måtte trekke meg da det istedet ble bursdagsfeiring med eldstemann denne dagen. Gleder meg over bildene dere damene fra foredrag og kurs deler :o) Teppet ditt er bare helt nydelig! Jeg har også hatt boka med An angles story siden den kom ut, og har så lyst til å sy teppet. Det må bare bli neste store prosjekt! Må bare få unna noen ufoer først ;o)
