Home sweet home...

Not much sewing to see at the moment but thought you may like a few holiday pics from beautiful Norway .

Dog sledding in Tromso, was great fun!

The ice bar in the Snow Hotel at Kirkenes.

Typical scenery all the way up the coast, absolutely stunning.

Ta da- here they are , the Northern lights  taken by an amateur ( me) on a compact camera! 

Rudolph taking a break from the Christmas rush!

What a brilliant time, I can highly recommend the Hurtigruten cruise.

Just starting a new project- watch this space....

On the ladder.....

Had to share my little purchase from the weekend- wanted an antique version but hard to find and sadly I didnt buy one when I saw it last year! So compromised with a cheap new version but it looks great!

Its a great way to show off my quilts!And its mobile nd could go anywhere in the house!

My bag is packed and ready for my trip to Norway to try and see the Northern Lights. I have some EPP with me in case I get some spare time!

These will be turning into a lone star sometime soon!

Hope to be able to post some stunning photos when I return- fingers crossed.xx

Sunday summary....

Had a great day in Bath yesterday with my fabulously talented daughter Sarah, ( take a look at her Etsy site ) , the sun shone all day, the train ride was pretty good fun , crammed with Wales fans on their way to Cardiff, and the retail therapy was rewarding!

I bought some great fabric- 

A Stitch in Colour  by Malka Dubrawsky really took my fancy, and I have ordered her book this morning!

Feedsack quilt now pin basted and ready for hand quilting- could take a while!

Whats this Flea Market Fancy for? the templates could be a bit of a giveaway-

Yes, I am going to do a small lone star , with EPP so that I can take it on my trip to
 Norway next week !

And finally- for the grand sale price of £3.50 -some French Bergere wool for a cowl to keep me warm
in the artic circle!

Loads to do and not much time to do it!
