Off to see Leanne

Running around in circles most of the evening (except for a movie with a friend) I’ve managed to pack for my weekend in Trysil, and class with talented Aussie quilter/designer Leanne Beasley. I’m so excited! I have been peaking at the blogs of May-Britt, Hanne, Sølvi, and Gudveig to see glimpses of her visit so far – and tomorrow through Sunday it’s my turn!

I just hope I have managed to pack everything I need. Fabrics I’m bringing for the Waverley Bag and My Butterfly Garden:

And threads in different colours, and what I could find of pens, pencils, sketch book, and lots of different other things. This is Bernie's first trip away from home (for you who don't know Bernie is my sewing machine) , so I think both he and I am anctious to see how he will fare on the bus :o) Fingers crossed he will be ok, and that all I will need is packed… If not, I will have to do some shopping at the stands the shops have brought up to the hotel.

In between the packing I managed to sew the last stitches into my new toilet bag, so I can bring it with me instead of the old one with a broken zipper :o)

Hope you too will have a great weekend!
Best wishes from Anne Ida
(Who wish the long bus ride tomorrow was over and she was in Trysil)


PS! Look at the treasure I found I had stuffed in my parent's attic:

How could I forget about having all these goodies?

Welcome to Trysil. Make sure to bring a little white fabric with freezerpaper back so Leanne can make you a label to have back on your Butterfly garden.

Kos deg i Trysil. Det skal bli moro å se hva som blir resultatet. Den toalettmappa var kjempefin.

I hope you have a great trip and a great class. Your fabric selection looks wonderful - so you're bound to bring back something spectacular. The toiletries bag looks wonderful, and what a fun find in the attic.
