I love walking around at Louise’s house…Where I find beauty everywhere…she has quilts all around the house… some of them new some of them good old favourites… 

A basket quilt in happy Me and My sister fabrics…a Leanne House quilt in pretty pinks and greens …a pink star quilt and a dreamy shirt quilt in pinks and blues…

A quilt made by me made from a pattern by Cheri Saffiote Payne … I have a pink one at home made by Louise …that’s sisters love. We know what we like :)
Doll quilts rolled up for Olivia to use..or just to be pretty, a fun cat quilt and a Noah’s arc stitchery quilt from a pattern by Lynette Andersson and little mini spool blocks soon to be a quilt.

And I also got to see Louise’s finished Plus block quilt that Louise, Marica and I swapped blocks with each other two years ago..or maybe it’s even longer than that… which reminds me…I have my quilt to finish… 😉

It’s a masterpiece if I might say :) … love the variety in the blocks…and wow…all the friendship blocks shared :) …seeing a block made by a friend and remembering which ones we made…that’s something special. You can read about the swap over here and also a tutorial on how to make the blocks here

Sadly my visit came to an end but I’m so happy I made this trip it made me realise I can do things again even if it made me tired…it gave me freedom and happiness. Thankyou Louise for having me a whole week!! And John too 😉 … promise it won’t be four years until the next time! 

See you… I now have some charged batteries! :)

Just talked..
Checked in at our hotel…
 while we waited for Louise and Gulli to come by bus from Östersund…
 we looked around in town…
Had some of this…

Shopped some … more on that later..:O)
Forgot to take photos of the shops.. stupid me..
Ate pizza .. no photos of that one either..

Went back to the hotel…
Smiled at the sight of all our lovely toiletbags…
 Looked through our shopping..
took a nice glass of white wine.. or two….
Nine a clock some of us became very hungry…:o)
Some of us ate tacos or ground beef patties with salad or warm foccacia bread with ham and cheese…and some just had hot chocolate with whipped cream… :o)
