During the yearly gathering of Norwegian Quilt society. There is always a block lottery. I am just the type of woman who cant resist. " years ago it were held at Hell, and this time I were one of the winners. Lucky me :o)

I want to send greetings to all the ladies who has contributed to this quilt:

Anne Lise Strøm - Mosjøen

Jonne Svendsen - Midsund

Irmelin Watnedal - Bergen

If anybody knows these ladies, pls let them know I have finally finished the quilt. Unfortunally I'll not be at this years gathering at Olavsgaard to show you the result. (I am going to Nordic gathering in Gothenburg instead)

Thank you all for a lovely Quilt.

2. Challenge

Actually it is not. I’ll combine the first and second the first 6 months.
I could not resist May Britt's One Project a Month challenge. This one goes for the whole year.

Now I need to figure out how to get this badge to the sidebar and list my projects underneath it.
Rita has promised to teach me how to. The Problem might be finding time to do it. But we'll get there one day, soon I hope.

Another 4 months are gone.
Now it has become the year 2009 witch gives me the opportunity to start a new life. :o)

A blogger friend told me my blog was disappointingly still (witch I already knew and was ashamed for). No action at all the last months. Should it be like this?

No, it should not!

Therefore I promised my self to get back to blogging. I’ll try to post more often this year, and not getting involved in to many projects (read: learn self-control). I have even started to exercise a couple of times during the week. I am told it gives you more energy. There is so much I want to do, and shearing it with friends, even gives more pleasure to the accomplished. I am so happy you all are out there, spread inspiration and vitality. I hope I am back to be one of you.
My goal for 2009:
  • Great stitching year
    Travel and meet friends
  • Spend quality time with my family
  • Exercice - Raise more energy
  • And be happy.
Sounds easy ? :o)
