Giggle Club Newsletter

Morning has broken...........
View from my bedroom veranda at 7 o'clock in the morning. Beautiful icicles!!
My husbond got these on his 50th birtday on the 13th of February and they are still blooming.
In Norway we have a saying; "if flowers live long; they were given by a sincere heart".
Jippy; my Giggle Club Newsletter and Project came a few days ago :-)I borrow a picture of the new project from Giggle Buttons Blog.

Beautiful colors and fabrics bought in Sømsenteret in Gjøvik. The silk-thread is perfect to quilting seams.

Back from OpplandsPokalen

Do you remember these dolls? Kristin and Haakon were the official mascots during the Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer in 1994. They are placed outside of Haakonshall in Lillehammer.
Inside the hall the globe with the symbolic dove stands.
...and the polar bear :-)
The globe again.
Late saturday evening outside the hall. It snowed and snowed....
I stayed at Torills house when I were in Lillehammer. She has started to quilt and she has made these lovely tablerunners :-)
You can have a foreboding of spring by watching these runners.
Over 400 gymnasts participated in OpplandsPokalen.
The speaker Finn Helge. I had responsibility for the music and the sound in the hall during the competition-days. You can see some of the CD's; 140 on Saturday and 90 on Sunday.

Drawings from Amos

Quilting pictures from Rockledge, Florida

The Quilt Place in Rockledge moved to another location in April 2006. My husbond was working in Rockledge at that time, so he got an invitation for me to come to their reopening. He used to drop by their store to buy me something before he came home one week per month. Really sweet of him I think:-)
So I went to The Quilt Place and bought a lot of fabrics, books, patterns and threads. One of the workers in the shop recognized me from previous visit. It was fun.
The Quilt Place is one of the largest full service quilt stores in Central Florida. They also have a wide variety of longarm designs that can be done on your quilt. Thrilling to see these machines in use.

NQF annual meeting 2008
