More goodies :-)

P1020751

From Quiltegaarden - all but 1 piece of fabric also mentioned in an earlier post :-)
I am eager to start the bunny quilt!

P1020752
2 lovely book finds in the old part of town, in a very crammed and lovely antique book shop :-)

P1020753
A Japanese book from a Finish shop. Both languages not understandable to me ;-)
Finish is sooooo different from the other Nordic languages, in every way. They are more related to Russian Hungarian language wise. (Thanks for the info Riikka)
The other Nordic languages are related to German.

The last of the goodies, using my last Swedish money. I forgot to add some quilt needles to the pile - I guess you can picture them in your mind :-)

I did not buy much fabrics, but as you know I have a soft spot for books.
I am very happy with all my new goods and are looking forward to use and enjoy them!

I kept my budget - in fact I have money left too :-)

The bus trip home was more relaxed, all being tired from 4 days of hectic fun :-)

Eva makes the most lovely drawstring bags with hexagons.

Now we have to start saving for the next Nordic Quilt Convention in Aalborg, Denmark in 2012 !
