Keeping bags for my student-girls in Trondheim

 Instead of an Advent calendar for my student-daughters I have made these keeping bags for Hanne Beate and Synnøve. This solution is a temporary one; they have a shared Advent calendar with their little sister Gunhild at home. And I have started to make new ones for them....... The bags are filled with sweets and goodies; one parcel for each day until they are coming home for Christmas.
I ordered labels from minanamnband in Sweden some weeks ago. They turned out to be very handy. Perhaps these band will be my driving force behind finishing some of my UFO's.....I bought 200 pieces so I can go through many projects, hehehehe.

Knitted mini Christmas stockings

 Aren't they cute these knitted mini Christmas stockings from Little Cotton Rabbits? The pattern is here.

Christmas Fair at Presteseter

Overview picture from the Christmas Fair at Presteseter last weekend :-)
An acquaintance had this crafty bag......
Mrs Løkken with some of her Tilda-look-alike dolls. I really liked them :-)
An old suitcase filled with hearts in different shapes and a Santa-couple.
More dolls and Santas displayed.......

Her Santas are strange characters
A pin cushion made like a muffin and an Angel-doll.
Wenche from Gjøik Quiltelag and member of Vestre Toten Lappelag is keen on exhibiting her patchwork and quilting.
Two cozy covers for hiding the bags inside the wine-carton .....
A tablerunner-and-doily-gathering. Beautiful!!!
Purses, bags, pompadures gathered in a wonderful mixture.

The Christmas Corner....

Wenche is sewing a great deal throughout the year. She attends "Kjerringtreffet", the Christmas Fair at Prestseter and in Fjellhallen, Gjøvik. So if you want to buy something from her; try the Christmas Fair in Fjellhaven in Gjøvik this coming weekend :-) Or leave a comment to this blog and I will tell her....

Torunn and Ruth from Vestre Toten Lappelag are good friends. We went together to this fair and had a great time. Some money were spent on presents and we got inspired to make some of ourselves. We enjoyed coffee, waffles and a long chat as well.

Visit to Quilteglede in Elverum

"Small Pleasures!" BOM for ten months.
Quilteglede in Elverum have moved to a new location and reopened the very same day I drove my DH to the hospital in Elverum. Pity him; I left him at a restaurant while I did a "little" shopping in this fabulous quiltshop. Many temptations and I came home with some yards of great and cheap fabrics :-)

"Pepperkaker" from Quiltehagen.
Angel from Langebraaten Design.

"Små hverdagsgleder" from AnnAKa sewn in tender colours.

"Vårsang" from AnnAKa's pattern.

The tablerunner "Spåblomst" from AnnAKa. The cakes were waiting for some quilting ladies! They were going to have a meeting and I guess a lot of quilttalks :-)
Two rooms in the bottom story were filled with fabrics to very nice price; only 60 Nkr a meter.
This lady is one of the two owners of "Quilteglede". She made it pleasant to shop there..... While she was busy cutting fabrics for me, May Britt (also known as Abyquilt) came into the shop. We said a few words in passing; May Britt was eager to see the nice price fabrics and I had to run to my DH. I hope we will have more time to talk next time we meet!
