We know: most accidents happen at home.
While I had big plans for today I managed to get a cut in my thumb.
Slows me down

First impressions from our new home in Norway

Early September we'll move to Norway. Last weekend I spent 2 days with DH and we measured our new home to find out how our furniture fits in.
All I can say about the new home is: wooooooow

It's located out of town near the shore of the North Sea - the livingroom and my studio on the first floor have a spectavular view!

DH has a nice room for his modeltrain and space for dirty work.
A big livingroom with an iron oven. My space is wonderful: a nice studio with big windows and a sleepingroom and a office with room for my drawers filled with my fabrics. Not shure to be able to sew, quilt, bead, read or knit in my studio - perhabs I'll just sit in my rocking chair and enjoy the wonderful view ....

What do you think?
Off to sort and prepack

Greetings from Bavaria

Pictures of room #2

Today I'll show you pictures of my room # 2
It's my libary, beading- and scrapbooking space AND my sleepingroom
I never really counted my books, but back in Duesseldorf I assumed it must be more than 400 - collected in 30 years of quilting 😊

Tomorrow I'll show you the main studio and my knitting project

Have a nice evening

Barbara's Freitagsfüller

1. Eigentlich habe ich heute richtig Lust, zu nähen – aber es geht zu einer Faschingsparty 2. Zur Zeit trage ich keinen Ring an meiner rechten Hand. 3. Spät am Abend schau ich immer noch mal was bei FB so los war. 4. Mit Stoff und Cutter herumprobieren und sehen was passiert – das macht Spaß. 5. Das Jahr 2012 ist noch jung und bringt mir eine schöne Reise nach Brüssel und Nantes. 6. Du weisst, dass du alt bist wenn Du morgens aufstehst 7. Was das Wochenende angeht, heute Abend freue ich mich auf mein Sofa und das Strickzeug, morgen habe ich nähen geplant und Sonntag möchte ich mal schaun, worauf ich Lust habe!
