At Lenes Studio

Lene is a very creative lady. She lives at a horsefarm and in the barn she has her own sewing studio..... The other members of Vestre Toten Lappelag have visited her studio once before, but I haven't been there. So our last meeting took place at her studio. (I asked for it)
The back side of her bat-quilt. She is going to attend a competition later this year with this quilt, so hush-hush!!
Notice her quiltinglines.
Lene's daughter in a fabulous quilt. The topper isn't ready jet, but the photographes of her daughter is eyecatching.

Lene is the master behind this sunflowerinspired quilt. And a nude man :-)

See the jigsaw puzzle. Will the last pieces fit into the picture....?

A butterfly-quilt. I think she took part in a competition at the NQF a few weeks ago.

Lene is a very experienced quilter. Her quiltinglines found and support her themes.
Lene often uses tulle and plastic to create new "fabrics" from treads, Angelina and yarns.

Inger Lise has made this big quilt for her recreational vehicle.
The proud quilter; Inger Lise.
Beautiful colors and fabrics used in this quilt.
A last peek of the quilt. Happy vacation times with this quilt in the car.
Ruth has made coasters. The green squares are leftovers from me :-)
Winnie likes to sew by her hand. This is a peeking-picture into her sewingbox. (She didn't notice me taking this picture. Hihihihi. )
Then she creates beautiful things from her little squares.
Can you see 4 hearts?
Lene; the hostess.

National championship

My athletic club is organizer of Nasional Championship for skijump and Nordic combined. So my hometown; Raufoss, is put into action this week :-)
Tor Berge, the leader of the main committee.
My husbond Roger. He has been busy as spokesman for the event.
The leader of the local mall, the mayor of Vestre Toten council Stein Knutsen and Tor Berge. The mayor saw through a skijumper-ski as a fun opening."Every Norwegian are born wearing skis" is an old saying.....
One of the shops at the local mall had decorated their windows with posters, old skis and the outfit for the volunteers.
An old backpack, knitted hat and stockings.
Banners where hang from the ceiling. Well done Raufoss Handelssenter!

A little bit of this and that............

Two presents are going to some spesial friends; one blogfriend and one online-quiltingfriend.
I hope they like it :-)
I've been busy with meetings nearly every afternoon so I haven't been able to sew so much I hoped to! But my disappearing-nine-patch is slowly taking form. I have to decide whether the blocks are going to be a little quilt or perhaps two tablerunners....
A good friend bought these tulips to me last weekend. They are beautiful and have whiskers...
Have a great week everyone.

The Artfull Bras Project. BRAS FOR A CAUSE

A nice co-worker emailed me this message:
"OH MY GOODNESS. What these quilters from South Carolina have done with bras!! It is amazing creativity and hilarious, too."
"Quilter or not, you can at least enjoy the humor of this site. Don't miss the captions, or page two. Members of Quilters of South Carolina have created one-of-a-kind bras for Breast Cancer Awareness. The exhibit concists of 49 original works of art which are unique, entertaining, humorous and beautiful to make the public aware of breast cancer, to memorialize those lost to the disease, and to honor survivors."
