Visit to Lappelåven

Welcome to Lappelåven!
Last Thusday 8 members of Vestre Toten Lappelag went to visit the online quilt shop Lappelåven.  It is located in Harestua in Lunner Council.
Beautiful ribbons and two bags on a rack.
A simple pompadour at the top of a shelf. 
Ruth is having a great time selecting fabrics........
Wenche is selling a lot of quilted things on fairs around in our district and she fell for these lovely glassbeads for her newly sewn handbags.
A model lay on top of some fabricbundles.  Take a closer look at the quiltinglines.......

 A glimpse of some of the fabrics in the online store....
 The owner; Gunn-May.
She had made waffles to us and they were served with strawberryjam and sour cream; Jammy! Jammy!
I was the last to pay of Vestre Toten Lappelag so you can see in the picture what I bought.....
Kristrun is happy with her goodies from Lappelåven.....
A cozy view from outside of the online shop. If you or your guild want to visit Lappelåven, make an appointment with Gunn-May. I'm sure you will find something of interest..............

And did I walk the Skywalk....?

The Grand Canyon Skywalk, an engineering marvel. This glass bridge is suspended 4,000 feet over the Grand Canyon. Look to the left and see the majesty of the Colorado River. Gaze to the right at the silhouette of an eagle carved out in Grand Canyon wall.

I took the walk and felt the freedom of the eagle as it flies through the canyon. I WALKED THE SKY 2010 :-)
