Another Angels Story Weekend

Wohoo! Last night I came home from another wonderful weekend of stitching on the Angels Story quilt along with May Britt, Hanne and Lise, and Bjørg (no blog) for a few hours yesterday. We had such a wonderful time!!!

Hanne and Lise picked me up Saturday morning and we drove up to May Britt's. Almost as soon as we arrived we headed of to the LQS Lille Stasjon - of course we had to spend some money *lol*

When we got back, May Britt served us home made "angel buns" on the veranda, and we spent most of the afternoon there stitching and chatting.

When it got too cold, we moved inside, and kept stitching, chatting and laughing - and of course May Britt's cat, Frida, joined in on the fun.

For supper we had a lovely salmon and pasta - it was soo yummy, May Britt!

Lise is a very speedy stitcher, and she has finished all her angel blocks, so after supper she started cutting the pieces for her quilt, and on Sunday she started piecing a couple of the blocks together:

they look so wonderful! The rest of us stitched some more on our blocks,

and when Bjørg joined in, we had a bit of a display on the living room floor

Angels Galore!!! *lol* Looks great, doesn't it?

May Britt let me go crazy in her drawer of green fabrics to add some variety to my angels quilt - look at this yummy pile I came home with

Thank you so much, May Britt!!! Now I just have to catch up on my blocks...

Thank you ladies for a great weekend!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!
Sincerely, Anne Ida
