nice to know ....

Summertime is here in Norway, and tomorrow it is
 supposed to be the warmest day so far in the area where I live :-)
My two grandchildren, Kasper 12 and and Eline 10, visited
yesterday. Here they are enjoying the hose with ever so cold water.

So far, so good: stitchery all done for Gail Pan`s bag, moving
on soon as possible with the cutting and sewing; 
may be very delayed due the holiday coming up soon.

Beautiful colour of Easter :-)
and I was lucky to buy some fabrics at half price.
The range is from Sweetwater by Moda and called Sunkissed.
 From our best  Q-shop here in Oslo: Kathrines Quiltestue,
 by me called Kat.Q. ... lol ...
I think the fabric is a good match to our Easter china called
"Woodland"  by Wood and Sons , Burslem England
bought by my mother years ago and is discontinued. 
The fabrics are for a table topper at Easter time.

Anyway, as I said our summerholiday soon to be, same as every year.
BUT before that is the Tour de France. In quilting circles called
"TOUR de FIBER", started by MayBritt and Hanne some years ago.
Great fun as well as very serious;  I will be stitching on "Simply Blessed". 
as well as preparing on my very,very slow project "Butterfly Garden".

When reading your blogs, OH, how I admire those of you  finishing projects.

Does look like summer has arrived in Norway. The stitchery looks very pretty. That is my favourite colour.

Så bra at sommeren er kommet der sør. Kan ikke skryte av det samme her, men vi har i alle fall hatt et par dager uten regn.
Nydelige stitchery! Stoffet til påskeløperen var også fint; vil nok passe veldig bra til serviset.
Riktig god sommer til deg og dine! Her kommer de første feriegjestene i morgen.

The children look like they are having fun. We spent most weekends in summer running under the sprinkler when we were children and there was no water restrictions. Sometimes at Christmas we would put the sprinkler on the roof to cool the house down...ha ha...

Love the Easter china.
