and The newest little bag from the new Norwegian quilt magazine My Quilt “ “Only Handluggage”. They have so many nice patterns in that magazine. The second magazine came out 2 weeks ago and I appreciate it very much. I really like their patterns.
Here is also a photo from the inside of the bag.

Last weekend was our sewing days. We are the members of the Quilt Group Intercourse. We met 10 years ago on a quilting trip to Houston and the famous exhibition there. We had a great time together and decided to met after we came back home. So we did and now we have met for 10 years. Some has backed out and one passed away last autumn. We are still 6 but only 4 of us are active. This year we met in the mountain of Vasstulan 1137 above the sea level. It was raining, slushing and blowing all the weekend, absolutely the perfect weather for indoors activities, like sewing.
This time we had decided to make a toilette bag after a pattern from Bente Malm. She is a very talented designer who I like very much. Her patterns are nice and she has designed many bags among other things. Unfortunately there isn’t a picture of the toilette bag we made. This shows a photo of one I made in January. You can hang it on the wall so it is very practical. I made another one this time but I haven’t sewn on the button yet. All of us made the same bag but all were different.

Last week my husband and I have stayed in our cottage in Hemsedal for a seasonal vacation. We have always much to do when we are there and this time the weather was nice and sunny all the time. Before we came up there it has snowed on the highest peaks and it looked so beautiful. We worked with the logs from trees my husband has cut earlier. My job is to split them. Fortunately we have an electrical log splitter that does the splitting easy. I just love it. We also walked in the mountains and of course I took some photos with my small camera. I love this time of the year.
Some of the days I wanted to sew and quilt. This time I had brought with me the quilt top I partly made in a class with Hanne in Kragerø earlier this year. After my sewing dryness was over I fulfilled this Kaleidoscope quilt. I added fleece on the back and quilted it in the cottage. Some days I sat out on our terrace, machine quilting in the lovely sunshine. When our holiday up in the mountains came to an end, I continued to the next mountains for a girls sewing weekend with my quilt group, Quilteklubben Intercourse. I will blog it later.
