Darling, I am home (I think….)

P1000676From Amish rush hour on Sunday morning – everyone rushing to church nearly at once.
I wonder if they were late ?

P1000678P1000688to busy Chicago traffic,

P1000697and then to my town Oslo in bird perspective, all in less than 24 hours –
makes my body and my head feel like they are in 2 different places at the same time….


To prevent myself from napping through the day I have put away all my clothes and my purchases + done laundry and all.
I still have a lot of photos from our trip, but since so many of my friends wants to see my purchases, I have decided to show them to you before blogging all the rest of the photos, even if I first had decided to keep my purchases to myself.

I have plans for most of these fabrics, but I am not telling, so if you want to know, you have to see what I am up to through the winter :-)


Focus fabrics,


and background fabrics,

P1000703P1000702patterns,P1000706quilt stencils,


some Dear Jane got-to-haves.


2 antique quilt blocks – the big block is from ca. 1880, the other one is from ca. 1900




I miss all my Shipshewana friends tonight!
I hope you all are home safely.
