This past weekend was the Norwegian quilt association's annual meeting in Bergen.
We filled the car (my husband's big work car) with samples, fabrics and patterns, and drove the 733 km over the mountains.....
Here is our booth Friday morning.
After a few hours it came together pretty nice. Between the three of us we set it up pretty quick, and we even had time for lunch before the shop area was open for business.
I was so happy that my Some kind of Wonderful quilt was finished, you can see it on the back wall here.
Here is the view as you walk up to our booth, I think this is right before we finished setting up.
Doesn't this old backpack filled with fabric look nice?
A closer look
And this is the other corner of the booth.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures :-)
We had so many lovely customers this weekend, and on our way home we started planning next year- this is always such a fun weekend!
Our trip home from Bergen is a story on its own- due to bad weather conditions over the Hardangervidda mountains we had to drive in a convoy. One of the cars got stuck in a snowbank, and the whole convoy got stuck on the mountain for a couple of hours until they could clear enough snow away so we could turn around and drive back down. We reached the closest town at 3 am and found a hotel so we could get some sleep. The next morning we found a different route home, since the mountain pass was still closed due to severe weather conditions. When we came home monday night we had driven over 940 km. from Bergen and home- and spent 21 hours in the car in two days. Now it feels great to be home!!!!!
