Having fun

The snow is gone- at last... and the trampoline is up again. The boys seem to spend HOURS on it every day, and they are getting really good. It is a great way of exercising, and I should probably get on it as well.

Tonight is sewing night at the Junior High School, where a few of the local quilters like to meet and sew together, drink coffee, and eat just a little chocolate LOL

On shop notes, I have been ordering patterns and books, and some 12 wt Aurifil thread for stitchery so far, and next week a sales rep from Knappehuset, a wholesaler who carries fabrics from Moda, notions and supplies will be here. I can't wait :) I have taken some photos of the shop interior (before I put any of the shelves up), you can see them here
Have a great day! I will post tonights sewing progress tomorrow!


  1. What a beautiful shop space you have. I can't to see what it will look like when it is open.

  2. Reading about your progressive happenings as you prepare to open a shop is so interesting. Can't wait to read more! I know this is an exciting time. :) Best wishes!

  3. This photo is amazing,
    I would like to be able to jump with trampoline!!!

    Your shop is going to be very nice and I I think you just imagine it with fabrics, books, ribbons, threads etc........

    ciao ciao

  4. Oh, I can't wait to see the shop all done full of fabric! How totally exciting. The pictures of the jumping kids are so cute. Yea, I need to get exercise like that. My exercise is getting up to go to the fridge! :) tee hee

  5. Kjekt å sjå bileta dine! Har du verkeleg laga så store tepper? Har du kvilta dei sjølv, eller?
    Du endar vel opp med nettbutikk også? Det hadde vi hine likt godt...

  6. The shop looks very cosy and inviting with the lovely timber.
    Only a little chocolate????

  7. Your shop looks great--have fun filling it with lots of good quilty stuff!

  8. It is so exciting to open a shop!! I wish I had the nerve to do something like this! My daughter will be moving to another state and the town is quaint and I thought it would be fun to retire there and possibly open a shop there.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it!
