Heading home...

ohhh... Last day ...and end of class...
Thankyou to Siw at Quiltegården 
for arranging the class, having the wonderful shop to be inspired in
and THANKYOU to the wonderful , creative and fun teachers...
....Leanne Beasley and Gail Pan....

Well I didn't do so much the last day either...
but I webbed all my 12 blocks..decided not to
needleturn mine... but with reflection...
they might have been finished by now...
thinking of the long way home in the car...and lunch hours..

Here are some of the things made from the two days...
Ohh.. we had fun girls...hadn´t we????
SOOOO....WHEN IS IT GOING TO BE THE NEXT ONE?????

The class!!!


The bloggers....

Thanks girls for a fantastic weekend!!!!
A fantastic adventure and filled with a lot of VITAMIN Q
we headed home to Sweden..
first stop in Östersund...slept over...
In the morning we took some last photos and
played a little in Louise sewingroom
(we found lots of wonderful little blocks laying around...lol)
setting up a new challenge between us...
Louise, Marica and Me...

...making small blocks and exchange them...
this will be so much fun!!!
After that we took our machines to the Sewing machine Doc...
Maricas machine became "rigid operated"
(screen light in just one option)
but OK...:o)
And mine a little adjusted...
and hopefully a happier machine!!
And then we sat our goal..to HOME!!
After 10 miles.. we needed a break.. Ok I did..
bought ice cream...
YUMMY...
Temptation it was...
But who knew we were heading for snow just 20 miles later
Yikkees!!!! Brrrrrr...

Came to Marica at evening...
Thanks to you Marica for driving all the way
a total of circa 145 swedish miles...
Crazy ..but oh so much fun...
Slept over and took bus home ...
and that was nice too..having been
 a "little" missed..:o)
The not so fun part was all the plumbing I had to do...
dishwasher didn't work..
and guess what.. he saved that for me...:o(
But after two days.. fiddling with it.. it worked!!!
SMILES!!!!
Have I packed up yet then...
NO..
Had hope for yesterday.. and yesterday for today..and this morning I hardly got out of bed... Lumbago!!! :o(
So today everything goes VERY slowly!!!
But I will pack up!!!
Need to see what I bought!!! :o)
