Whilst browsing the internet, I found another Norwegian quilt shop "Sy-Sammen" that stocked some older AnnAKa patterns that I hadn't already got, so of course I couldn't resist another little bit of retail therapy :) - I dread to think how many of these patterns I've bought now - probably enough to start my own Norwegain quilt shop hehe!! Anyway, I bought 3 more patterns, "Gledelig Jul" -(2004) which is a runner with appliqued gingerbread houses (pepperkakehus in Norwegian) and trees, decorated with cording to look like icing.....can you see the smoke curling up from the chimney of that looks-good-enough-to-eat gingerbread house?
..... "I oldemors tid" (In Grandma's time - 2006), decorated with applique, and sequins or knots - actually, I thought this would look quite good in batiks.....
..... finally "Stjernedryss" (Starsprinkles - 2004) which is decorated with appliqued stars and rows of decorative stitches. this could prove to be a popular choice for Christmas presents later this year!! Anyway, these patterns will keep me busy for the next few weeks..... so many thanks to Karin for sending these to me - I already had seen "Stjernedryssløper" on Anne-Grethe's blog, and now I can make my own!!
