Nqt in Gothenburg

This is the winnner quilt made by a woman from Tromsø. The competition was about "Building bridges". When I took photos from the competition I didn't know that this was the winner. The next photo is a detail of the first photo.

Since last time I wrote I have been to NQT in Gothenburg and met with many other quilters. I stayed at the Riverton Hotel very close to Folkets Hus where the shops were situated and some of the exibitions also vere displayed. Since much of my family live in Gothenburg I arrived there on Wednesday and stayed a couple of nights with my cousin and his wife. We had a very nice time together. On Thursday we went to the cinema to watch "Angles and Demons" that is made after a book written by Dan Brown and with the same name. It was very close to the book and I liked the film very much. Do I have to say I read the books a few years ago? Afterwards we went out for a late supper in a nice restaurant near the Avenyen.

Then there was time for me to move to my hotel near the city centre. Hotel Riverton was a renovated hotel that were absolutely top for women. Everything you needed was in the bathroom. The bed was good and the breakfast superb. Not that I am very hungry in the morning but I like to eat something. On the last evening we went up to the skybar in the hotel and had a drink. It was a wonderful view over the whole city. Quite spectacular. The photos show some of the women I was with during my stay in Hotel Riverton both during the common dinner on Saturday night and afterwards in the Sky Bar.

Hei Elisabeth! Det er en fin quilt Magnhild Tautra har laget. Tillater meg å gjøre deg oppmerksom på at hun ikke er fra Tromsø, men fra Vestnes - midt i Møre og Romsdal.
