A lovely weekend was had by all

The days are flying by here - and suddenly it is Thursday again ……..

I am behind on blogging, so I will start with Friday last week.

My dear friend Bente has just turned 50, and this was her quilt friend party, with quilt class included :-)

I was the lucky teacher, and the theme was Kaleidoscope.
I decided to give the class to Bente as a gift, and it was a pleasure for me to teach.
Location: Bente’s sewing room.

We started on Friday - first Bente + May Britt and I - chatting and laughing --- and admiring Bente’s lovely hexagon quilt :-)

Shhh - I am behind on mine…….. :-))

Siv Hege, Inger Solveig og Tove shared a table in the middle, and I was here and there and everywhere, with some hexagons for hand sewing when I had time :-)

Food and cakes was in abundance, both days, and we had a lovely party Saturday night after class, with seafood.

It is autumn here now, but we were lucky with the weather on Sunday morning, so we could have a nice time outdoors as well, before May Britt and I was heading home again.

It was a lovely weekend, with a lot of Vitamin Q !

Thanks for a lovely weekend, Bente - it was  a weekend to remember with joy  :-))
I am looking forward to seeing you all again!
