NQT 2009

Today it’s the first day after I come home from NQT in Goteborg I’m not sleeps in the evening after work. I have had a wonderful time, meeting new and old quilting friends is always inspiring.

If you want to see photos for Goteborg, you will find many at NQT 2009 and May Britt has lots of them at her blog.

I gave myself a promise, not by any fabric and I came home with no fabric :-)
I did some shopping anyway.

The DMC linen thread are just lovely and I bought all the colors the shop had.
And you can see all the other stuff I came home with. I want to try Meshwork some day.

Tabel runner and NQT 2009

Finally, I finished the table runner to my niece. There were no applications on it, I tried with several variations but was not satisfied. Therefore it was so someone suggested quilting with variegated thread.

Now I’m packing my suitcase, soon I will travel to Goteborg in Sweden to the Nordic Quilt Convention NQT 2009 . The national quilting guilds of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland take turns to arrange a four-day quilt convention every third year. And this time we are heading for Sweden.

Out in the mountain/wood


DH, I and the dogs went out in the mountain/wood today. We are in Vegårdshei where our cabin is.
I took with me my camera because I need some proof that I have been with DH walking in the mountain :-) I’m not the person that’s exercise most.

Shopping tin


Last week I was in Sweden with my working place, and when you can’t find fabric and can’t get a thimble well get a tin. I just love tin and I was very pleased when I found this one.

New fabric


Look at this fabric I got from my sister and hers DH. I’m pleased that she’s buying fabric to me and then I’m sewing presents to her :-)
This style of fabric is new in my stash; I’m looking forward to make something with them. It will be a real challenge.
