to finally get my acts together and drive down to Östersund and visit Louise… all I can say is that I didn’t remember how far it was… 😉 phew… it took me 9 hours… 

Have feared driving because of my headaches… now it was time to test myself and just do it! And I did it!! Yay to me! 

Beautiful art by @parscaeli

Of course I got tense and got headaches but that was minor to my happiness of being with my beautiful friend Louise…

Had a lot to catch up on… sharing this and that under some quilts in her lovely garden watching her husband and son build on their new patio… 


Found some quilts that I have made at the house… that’s happiness…


Love her warm cosy friendly home filled with lovely quilts everywhere… this one brought lovely memories from a trip we made to Trondheim and took a class with Gail Pan and Leanne Beasley… how fun wasn’t that! Isn’t it gorgeous!


A work in progress… some Splendid Sampler blocks added with added blocks of her own ..and it’s a pink burst of joy!


Ain’t this one just it… a typical Louise quilt in her pinks and blues with a splash of yellow!


We also managed some sewing the first days… in between catching up, rest and the busy life in the Short family with visitors, visiting and sleeping over grand children and Louise’s care of her parents… this family does everything with the heart and fills me with such peace and love

July Scandibee blocks made by both me and Louise for May Kristin in Norway (@krispquilt) ….Lots of Flying Geese in a lovely colour way in greys and aqua.

Thanks for being all this to me Louise…

More to come in another blogpost … see you!
