At Louise ( No blog)...

Ok ladies...I have finally managed to figure out how Louise´s computer works...pheew...I think...so this will be fun to see if I can make this blogentry...
After 10 hours with bus I made it to Louise with sewingmachine and some HEAVY bags...you all know what that means..fabric...yes...no clothes... ok some but a lot of projects to be made and fabrics..just in case ... ;)
After a wonderful dinner...and a lot oh and ahhhs ( had to walk aound the house first...will show you later...) we had some wine and talked...and look ...
...some wonderful cup cakes...And No LINDA ...these are not yours... :)
And that day ended to fast...so no sewing...didn´t even pack up the sewingmachine...

Day two I spent walking around in Östersund and made some shopping but not much...my favourite store had closed down and my favourite place to eat had closed down too...
At the evening we were invited to another Louise for coffee and cake...and where do I have my manners...I didn´t even take ONE picture!!! Shame on me... Oh she had some wonderful quilts and wallhangings..and the lovely cake she made for us...Mmmmm.....carrotcake with candied violets ...Fantastic!! And she gave me the sweetest little candle holders in zinc and some lovely old buttons...Hmmm forgot the picture... :)
Thanks Louise D for a wonderful evening...
And no sewing today ....
Day 3...
Managed some sewing before lunch...and a LOT of backwards sewing...yikkees...not a god day for sewing... After Louise had worked we were invited to Britt Inger...
On the way there we visited a flea market...and Louise made some bargains...she fell in love with something really special...just wait and see...we had to go back to the flea market after the visit at Britt Ingers place...
Almost forgot to take pictures here as well....this is one of her quilts ...I just love this one...this one she made during her cancer treatment...just one treatment left...and I´m so glad she is doing Ok...Way to go Britt-Inger!!
And we had the most wonderful dinner with salad and grilled chicken...and Mmm that was so tasty...and after that a absolutely wonderful rhubarb cake with homemade vanilla sauce...
and that was really something... do I have to mention that I was so satiesfied!!
Thanks for inviting us to a wonderful day Britt Inger and Christian....
And what was it that Louise had fallen in love with...
Sha argued back and forth all the way to the fleamarket...No I shall not...Yes ...I will...
So we stopped just to take a look...:)
and by then You guessed it ...she bought it!!And we managed to get into the car...
What is this????
And old rusty iron bed for the garden...It´s going to be just wonderful......picture it with some lovely peonies...and other wonderful flowers..It will be just great...
Great buy Louise!!
On the way home we had a the most wonderful views...the weather was wonderful...we had up to 28 degrees ( 85 F)...and that is some rare warm swedish days...
This is a wild flower that is very common in Sweden...
...Rallarros or Mjölkört...

...and it was so calm ...no wind...and this was so beautiful we just had to stop and take a picture of a beautiful Sweden...










This is some pictures from Louise´s backporch ...I just love it...
Can I say...we have had some wonderful days...not so much sewing...
but alittle have been done...so this is a little teaser for you Linda.... :)
Hope you all are having wonderful days out there...will show you some more pictures later..now that I finally got the hang of the computer.. ;)
