Friday I went to Førde, to teach Dear Jane.
Førde is a small town on the west coast, crossing mountains from here, and in an area where there is a lot of wind and weather, compared to where I live.
The first time I travelled by one of these small propeller airplanes I thought it was a little bit scary, but now, when I have travelled with them several times I know that they are very strong little work horses, in all kinds of weather.
I was met by my hostess for the weekend, Åse, and it felt like we had known each other for a long way right away, but isn’t it the way it often is with fellow quilters? :-)
Before we did anything else, on our way from the airport, we stopped by Desiree’s Lappeteknikk.
Here is what I found - a large piece of a wonderful tea dyed background fabric, closely related to the rose fabric from my hexagon quilt, a pile of 30 cm pieces, mostly Japanese homespuns, a roll of 5” cuts, full width, Japanese too - and a Bohin white pen with refills and extra pencil coloured refills.
As soon as I have some other projects out of the way, these fabrics will be cut into.
I have a plan :-)
