This and That :))

The birde and groom made a great arrival on a motor bike last Saturday :))
An outside untraditional wedding were Nina and Helge were married. 
Nina is my daughter Siri`s good collegue at work. 
Eline,my little granddaughter
 gave Nina the flower bouquet when they disembarked the bike!

Usefull gift for the new wed couple, I made a pair of potholders :-)

Check my pouch below: I have seen some on blogs as well as on FB. 
Now my turn to make one! The pattern is from  pattydoo.de 
The cutting instructions is 1 sheet only, easy to be copied from her web site
 An excelent step by step  info on her ytube page with English subtittle.
 I had my IPad next to the sewing machine and in one-two-three all
 finished    (well !!! almost in 1-2-3 .... lol ...) The fabrics are from LIBERTY,
bought from Sunflowerfabrics in UK. Check her web and her fb page,
 Maggie has a lot of  beautiful fabrics in her shop :-) 

Snow and hail-storm in June are very exceptional. The weather that Mother
 Nature gave us in Oslo last Thursday was most uncomfertable including
heavy thunder, rain + snow + hail-storm.
 It seems that some of the summer-flowers might not survive.

Soon July month with Tour de France/ Tour de Fibre on it`s way as well
 as the Summer-holiday for lots of us. Same cabin and same weeks every
year for some. I know what to bring: hexagons with the fabrics, stitchery and
 some appliques to be buttenhole stitched. Hope to finish all of my plans :)) 
 THANKS for popping into my blog :)) Grethe, xx

WOW Grethe I have visited your blog for a while sorry. Life has just got in the way. I just love all the little bags you have made. Norway looks beautiful in Summer...a heat wave at 25.....Hee Hee.. I think that is funny for us. Love the trout. I love fishing too.

Have a lovely time sewing in your cabin. The pouch is very pretty. Liberty lawn fabrics are gorgeous to play with. Congratulations to the happy couple. I am sure the will find the pot holders useful.
