I am visiting up in the northern parts of Norway, in the lovely little town Mo i Rana, bringing my Dear Jane and my Nearly Insane quilt to teach and to inspire.
As you see, the weather is on our side, and the crips autumn air was good for a walk. Britt took me sightseeing, and it was a pleasure!
This stone man monument was a feast for the eyes, combined with the lovely scenery.
We walked the old part of town, where you are not allowed to change anything on the old buildings, like a living museum, and still a very present and significant part of Norwegian culture and near history.
We also had the pleasure of visiting the local quilt and yarn store.
It is well stocked in every way, both fabrics and notions, not to forget expertise.
The local shops are priceless – we both want and need them :-)
Any knitters out there – this is a neat idea for you dish washer liquid bottle, don’t you think ?

Kos deg, ikke mye som slår nordnorge i vakkert vær.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the tour. The statue is wonderful. The water reminds me a little bit of Lake Superior along the rocky shore of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Lovely, Hanne.ReplyDelete
Beautiful place and beautiful photos. You are a lucky lady. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing your photos. What a cute shop.....I'm sure you bought some souvenirs.ReplyDelete
What a lovely place-- looks very peaceful.The houses are colourful and I am glad there is a conservation order on them-- they are unique.ReplyDelete
The shop looks very welcoming-- the orange/red coloured fabrics look like my favourite colours!
Those photos are so lovely. Very calmimg. You have a beautiful country and it is good that some of your heritage is preserved so well. I only wish we could preserve ours here in Australia despite being such a young country.ReplyDelete
