Helg - weekend

Takk for råd i forbindelse med mitt forrige innlegg. Jeg har bestemt meg for å skrive både på norsk og engelsk for en periode, så får jeg se hvordan det går.

Thanks for advice on my last post. I have made up my mind - I'll try to write both in Norwegian and English for a period and see how it will turn out.

I det siste har jeg brukt mere tid med strikkepinnene enn med nål og tråd. Barnegenseren jeg startet på for noen måneder siden er endelig ferdig; får ikke håpe gutten har vokst for fort :-)

Recently I have spent more time using the knitting sticks than needle and tread. The little sweater I started months ago is finished - hopefully the boy hasn't grown too fast :-)Litt søm har det blitt, men jeg kan dessverre ikke vise noen bilder ennå ettersom det er en gave. UFOen jeg viste sist, har jeg ikke gjort noe med, men planen er å applikere noen blomster.

I have been doing a little bit sewing, but unfortunately I can't show you any photos yet as it is a gift. The UFO I showed you in the last post is still the same, but I will applique some flowers.

Regn og atter regn; det er ypperlig vær for aktiviteter innendørs. På de høyeste toppene er det kommet litt snø, men jeg håper ikke vinteren kommer riktig ennå.

Rain, rain, rain - it's perfect weather for indoors activities. The highest tops are covered with some snow, but I can't believe the winter is coming sooo early.

Ha en fin lørdag!

Have a nice Saturday!

What's happening?!?! Today, I do have the time to quilt, but my inspiration/creativity seems to be gone. I've no idea what to make or work on. Actually, I did find this (rather ancient) UFO when going through some fabrics I thought I could do somethng with. The question is what? Sigh Perhaps, I just ought to go out and enjoy the lovely fall weather we are experiencing at the moment? As you can see, yesterday I just did that, went for a little walk. I was so pleased when I came across some chanterelles.
Another thing, I have been playing with the thought of making this blog bilingual - writing in both Norwegian and English. The question is, would it be "too much" work to do both? Thoughts?
Right, seems to be an indecisive day today. And I haven't even mentioned the fact that I managed to cut the new curtains for one of my daughters too short........

A letter from Australia

A couple of days ago I received a letter from Cathy in Australia. She organized a thimble exchange some weeks ago. Now I'm the owner of a beautiful thimble from Tasmania. Thanks a lot, Cathy!
