Here I am once again on the eve of another adventure - how exciting! I am heading back to Norway to teach for Siw at Quiltegarden in Trondheim. Not just in Trondheim but also onboard the Hurtigruten Cruise ship on a stitching journey up the coast of Norway into the Arctic Circle! Of course I am very excited to be taking this trip with another Australian Designer, Gail Pan. Gail and I have been friends now for many years, meeting through patchwork. I am sure we will both have many stories for you on our return (no photos of me sleeping on the plane please Gail! LOL):
And seeing as we had to venture through Rome airport to reach Norway, and return home, we decided to have a little stop over on the way home here:
Of course we can hardly sleep with all the excitement of catching up with many ladies from not only Norway but Sweden, England, and Denmark, who will be coming to Norway to catch up with us. While on my adventure I will have to be doing some stitching at night to complete a big project that I have on the go and must have finished before Australian Quilt Market in November:
I am incredibly inspired and will share more of this project with you later ("not more sneak peeks" I can hear you say). Of course I must say that having your best friend's first line of fabric to inspire you, like her divine little house fabric, makes life easy:
This is what I will be stitching:
So if you are after Rosie's fabric range check your local store, or if you need a little of each of the fabrics in the range (trust me, you do) then try 'Patchwork With Gail B' who has the entire range already in stock, or 'Foothills Fabric and Thread', or 'Under The Mulberry Tree', or 'Quilt Fabric Delights', or...the list goes on.
Anyway I will be home and blogging on the 11th of October so I will chat to you then.
