with visit from a worldknown, famous artist; a super exhibition as
well as an interesting lecture. How lucky we have been to have had 
KAFFE FASSETT and BRANDON MABLY visiting us here in Norway :-)
Enjoy a cup of something to drink as photos are not
 really in the correct sequence,and mind you these photos are
only a handfull of what we saw.

My teapot quilt (Kaffe`pattern) and the original quilt! 
Love the smiles on their faces :))
Below Solveig has just shown Kaffe "his" cardigan she knitted
30 years ago, while Kirsten there is busy with her camera, and 
Brandon is being a wee bit cheeky!

I bought one book (have like 7 in my bookshelf!) with many small projects,
 just a few fabrics + a lovely card/picture of the master himself
 (as Brandon described him).
We enjoyed the exhibition with knitting, needlework/tapestry and
 beautiful quilts with beautiful colours. Kaffe`s lecture took us into 
his life as an arts and crafts man from the very start. He is still creating 
at the age of 77 years (78 on Dec.07, 2015).  He is in companionship 
with Brandon Mably and Phillip Jacobs through Rowen. 

The exhibition will be here in Norway till mid. August, might just
 take another one hour`s trip to enjoy his work once more :-)
Lots of inspiration was building up during this weekend.
 Thanks for reading, Till next time, hugs from Grethe xx

Oh Grethe! I know how much you must have loved this weekend! I'm more of a traditionalist, but I know how much you love Kaffe.

What a lovely exhibition-- aren't you lucky to have been able to attend it and meet KF in person. I loved the photos.

Beautiful work. It would be great to see this work at an exhibition. Did it inspire you to go home and sew???

Fantastiske farger og mønstre. Jeg fikk dessverre ikke tid til å være på foredraget, men jeg skal ta turen til Hadeland og få med meg utstillingen. Takk for at du deler bildene dine.

I can't believe you were so lucky to see this exhibition and meet them. What a treat. I love your tea pot quilt. It's my dream to start collecting his fabric and make a quilt - I have one 1/2 yard piece. Ha! I've a long way to go. Thanks for sharing your photos!
