There and back again :-)

March was super busy with a lot of fun stuff and a lot of sewing going on.

April 4th the travel for Canada and USA began:
I came home yesterday afternoon and I do have a lot of photos to go through.

The suitcase and backpack got unpacked yesterday.
The laundry is done, and it is time to sort and put my purchases away:

P1060374My fabric treasures absolutely gives away my fabric taste, don't they??
Civil War reproduction fabrics - yes indeed :-)
Mostly Fat Quarters + a few larger cuts in the background.

I visited several shops, but most of all Lolly's in Shipshewana, IN.
The atmosphere and service there is The Very Best!
Hugs to Kris and Mike + all of their staff, for wonderful moments, many laughs and lots of fun!

P1060375Stocking up on notions too off course :-)

P1060376Not to forget books and patterns :-)

I have slept for 14 hours through the night - went to bed at around 8 pm and got up at 10 am today. Jet lag is slowly wearing off.

I will do some sewing, later today!
My sewing machine has been in for service when I have been gone.

No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.

It has really been great 3
weeks, but it is also great to be home again,
catching up with family and friends - and life in the quilt corner :-)

Velkommen tilbake til Norge i vårstemning!
Så utrolig fine stoffer og så stilfull sammensetting. Da er det vel bare å sette igang?

May Britt said...

So good to have you back home again. Have missed you. Next time I am going with you over there!!!

You went home with a LOT of loot! Looks wonderful! I also love your stitcheries. I love to do it too and sometimes I can do it in the car or truck. The truck can be too bumpy and that is what we use for long trips. I just HAVE to have some stitchery to do while watching TV. I think I am about to start doing the stitchery for a pattern by Crabapple Hill - Over the River and Through the Woods, so that will keep me going for a while! I'm thinking of doing it in blue.
