Happy day

Saturday was such a great day! Svein and I left early in the morning to head to the airport.  Then we waited  for a while..... wondering if she would be the next one to come through those doors.....

And then all of the sudden she was there!!!!! Yeeey- our girl is back home! She's been in Texas for two months- but it sure feels like she's been gone a lot longer than that! Now our house is back to normal, and it feels great! I've missed her so much while she was gone- we all have!

Over to some quilty business.... Here's my "Simple Things" quilt all finished. Merete did the quilting, and I am really happy with how it turned out. Thank you so much for this great quilt along Carol and Kelly! It was so much fun :-)
Well, today is the first day of school after summerbreak for the kids, so I better get breakfast ready for them- I am not looking forward to trying to get them out of bed before 8 in the morning again.... But I'm sure after a few days we'll be all set in our regular routine.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
