We then headed over to Norway where I was greeted at the airport by Kathrine from Kathrines Quilt Stue
I had some big days ahead of me
4 classes and 2 trunk shows the entusiasm in Norway is unbelievable and it never seems like work ever.
The girls had all been working hard to get their quilts finished from when I was there last time and I was not disappointed. I have never seen so many of my designs all finished in one place before.
I am just going to load up the photos so you can see for yourselves.
It all started with a trunk show. I just lost count as to how many people came. I was so overwhelmed.
And that was not all of them.
May Britt and Hanne with a table full of friends all wearing our glitzy lanyards. Why not grow old disgracefully I say.
Kathrine, as usual had made a beautiful display of everything including lots of fabric bundles. She just about moved her whole shop.
Icy nights next to the original from my book New English Paper Piecing
Joined at the heart from my book made by Merete. Yes it is in shades of grey
Merete and myself. Merete not only makes beautiful quilts but she is one of the best quilters I have seen along with my quilter Cathy Shibrowsky.

Rebekkah!!! What can I say she makes so many beautiful quilts. I think she had 4 big ones there to show me and she also works full time. What a treasure you are.

Last year when I was in Norway we finished with a photo wrapped in quilts so here we are again wrapped in different quilts.
Thankyou to everyone who made my trip so fabulous. Thankyou to Kathrine for being a great hostess and to all of her staff. Oh yes and to Helle who made sure I was always where I was meant to be each day.
I hope to see you all again soon
