If any of my blog readers are local to this area (or even if they're not!!) they might be interested in a Norwegian Day that is being hosted at my local quilt shop. The owner, Karin, is hosting this day and there will be a rep from the Hurtigruten. She will describe the epic voyage along the Norwegian coast made by the Hurtigruten ships since 1870. Her talk will feature highlights from the 37 towns visited each day by two working ships, one calling from the south and the other calling from the north as they bring vital supplies to the local people. One of the stops along the route is in Bodø, just North of the Arctic Circle, where my friend Hanne has the most wonderful quilt shop - Lappedila - hei hei Hanne!!.....
.....there will be coffee and waffles (Norwegian waffles are DELICIOUS and I've got my very own Norwegian waffle maker that my friend Eva bought me when she came to stay with me - how lucky am I!!) - and a "make and take" that my daughter Alice is teaching, and a free raffle too....
.....anyway, the most important thing is, Karin asked me if I could lend her some of my Norwegian projects to display in the shop. Well of course I said yes, so there will be lots of my work on display, mostly table runners, and some bags - all designs that I have made from Scandinavian patterns and magazines. Hope to see you there!!
