Friday night sew in

Friday Night Sew In is over for tonight- it is now midnight, and I have managed to finish the applique on the borders of the fairytale quilt.  As you can see there are two stitcheries missing in the bottom row.  The last pattern arrived at the shop today, and I still have a bit left on January's stitchery.  I am so happy to have the borders finished though.  I have a week off for winter break with the kids starting Monday, so I hope to get some stitching done next week :-)
Of course I had to watch some TV as well tonight- the Olymics are on, and a local girl- Therese Johaug was in the cross country race- she did great, and came in 6th :-)  And to top it off, Norwegian skier Marit Bjoergen won the gold, and Kristin Stoermer Steira came in 4th- Congratulations to all of you!!!
And of course Congratulations to Gold medalist Aksel Lund Svindal who won the men's super-G tonight!
While watching tv I had some knitting to do- my sweet brother's stockings for his bunad- the national costume.  Poor guy, he's been waiting for these for a couple of years now- I really need to get them done!
As you can see I am getting there.... The heels are done, only the rest left now....
There are just so many temptations from new quiltpatterns, knittingpatterns and lovely sock yarn like this at the shop...
Well I am off to bed, work tomorrow, and then I am heading to the cabin where the boys are.  A week off will be great!
I leave you with a picture from last Sunday when horses going to a traditional county fair in Røros travelled by the shop.... They travel "old style" for two- three days to get there- looks like fun!
Thank you for stopping by, and have a great week!
