In case you are all wondering where I am??? We have no internet connection, I am missing you all and will be back as soon as they come and fix us!
When I popped into my local quilt store The Patchwork Angel yesterday afternoon this lovely display greeted me.
My quilt Irish Birds and the Sweet Home pillow collection are having a bit of a holiday at the store and I think the girls have done a great job with the display, thank you angels. As you can see in the picture they have stock of both the quilt pattern and the pillow pattern and fabric both as pre-cuts and on the bolt. I have fallen in love with the cute piece of furniture they are using in the display, shame its not for sale too!
I wonder if you got tempted?
Tuesday found me and my friend Sue heading off with a car full of quilts and other quilty bits and pieces for a professional photo shoot.
We went to Sandra Faye's gorgeous studio which was in a wonderful tim shed. In fact the shed is every girls dream and now all I can think about is how I can get a shed just like it...........hmmm.....
We set the big quilts up on the floor..
The photographer did her stuff from the mezzanine floor.
It was a fun, if exhausting morning, filled with laughter!
Just been playing with my blog look, so try refreshing your browser to see the changes.
Just starting to play with the taupe and red fabrics that I showed you, not sure where its going to lead but I like it.
When I went to the hairdressers last week I challenged Matt my colourist to change me back to being a red head, its been a couple of years since I was this colour and it was time for a change again!
I've been gazing at this little pile of fabrics and threads today.... and in between gazing I have been drawing... drinking tea and munching on chocolate.
Hopefully you have had a good day too?
taking with us some of the good things in life....... cheese, bubbles and some good company...perfect. Oh, and of course our faithful dog Hugo who was 'just helping look after all the good things'!
Its good to be home...
Here we are back in Oslo almost at the end of our holiday. We wanted to visit Kathrine in her store because when I did my workshop and evening presentation it was not held in the store. We decided to enjoy the fresh if a bit chilly air and walk, on the we passed the residence of the King and Queen of Norway.
I got to play in some Autumn leaves.... dont you just love the swooshing sound they make under your feet when you kick them!!
Arriving at the store...
Inside the store there was so much to see...
Then we headed off to explore some of the city before catching our plane home, but first a stop at the bakers for something to eat.... but what to choose?
yummy bread and a coffee..... good idea, thanks Kathrine.
With coffee in hand we walked to the park to see the amazing sculptures by Vigeland.
