The most wonderful day!

 P1040380

It is hard to know where to begin, but one thing has to be said loud and clear – Thank You Lynette!

Thanks for being who you are, and for being such a generous and inspiring person!

It was such an inspiration to meet you and see your quilts and things, so now I have to get up even earlier in the morning to get more time to stitch :-)

Lynette’s design has been very high on my favourite lists for years :-)
I have always been drawn to small stitches and accuracy, of which Lynette is a master.
She also has her lovely furry friends in her work, and I love that. You can guess my softest spot is Felix, the cat, right ? ;-)

Our class was lovely!!
We started the bag, with needle turn appliqué. The work above is Lynette’s class sample – one of them.

We got very good instructions for stitches and how tos :-)

I am already subscribing to The Kitten Tale BOM – lucky me :-))

The class participants got a trunk show in the morning too, and I know that these quilts are on my to do list in the future!!
I have the Christmas quilt in a book I have had for years :-)
The Crazy Christmas quilt below is a BOM. Look out – you know me and good BOMs ;-)

To the left is Lynette’s DH Vince. He is a very pleasant person too.

May Britt and I are as happy as we look :-)

Kathrine had brought along all kinds of temptations from her shop – and yes, we got tempted indeed, but that has to be another post!

May Britt and I both reached for the same pattern at once, and that was not on purpose, believe me :-)
P1040405 P1040406
Lynette has many of her things in different colourways, which is an inspiration to all, no matter what your favourite colours are.

Another one of my favourite patterns.

After the trunk show we got a lovely slide show presentation from Lynette’s quilting life.

Lynette was on her feet all day, from early morning to late evening, so she must be all wiped out today.
She gave her best left and right all day, and made the day so special for us all.
Thanks again for letting us meet you and for sharing yourself and your lovely work with us!

You are a very special lady Lynette, and I will treasure this day!!

Smiling ear to ear – happy and ready to iron some transfer for stitchery -

What a lovely time you have had, Hanne. I was lucky enough to go to a punch needle class with Lynette a few years ago and it was inspiring. I am like you and have a large stash of Lynette's books and patterns. I have made quite a few and have just started the Christmas BOM. I put some pictures of it on my blog. Greetings from Australia.

Ser ut som dere har hatt en knallbra dag, full av vitamin Q. Takk for at du la ut så mange bilder så flere av oss får se.

Anne said...

Enig med deg Hanne. Hun er i særklasse når det gjelder detaljrikdom i broderiene sine, det falt jeg for. Det var en opplevelse å se henne vise & fortelle i går kveld.

I am sooooo jealous! I just love her patterns. Makes me want to go sew, but here I sit. Trying to draw a simple basket in EQ.
