I have done the second drawing. The winner is:


Sigrun, you are the lucky one! E-mail me your snail mail addy so I can send you a little surprise gift.

On Friday we are leaving for vacation and a new adventure in our camper. I have no idea if I’ll be able to blog. Surprises may happen.

Have a great summer – or winter. Depending of what part of the world you live in. I have figured that summer in Norway is a different story in Australia. One of the big adventures in the blog friendship connections.

I’ll be back with new projects and photos.

3 years of blogging

An anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate. Giveaways is always fun, and I hope you think so too. I am a bit annoyed because my counter is out of order. Now I don’t know how many visitors I have. That is another story.

To celebrate my bloggaversary I have made a surprise bag for one of you to win. All you have to do is leave a message. I would like it a lot if you could tell me something that you like about my blog. A special photo, a post you like or just something in my blog you like. You have only 3 days to enter the giveaway. My bloggaversary is July 10 and the giveaway closes at midnight my time. Feel free to tell your friends.

Stay in touch.

Summer activities

This is anew investment for the summer.  We never had a camping wagon before so this is a new experience.   Yes, I can fit in my smallest sewing machine :-)

 Kos med grillmat

Summer so far has been lovely with nice temperature and sun.  This is my out door summer sewing room.


Yesterday I made four bags like this.  I will use all four in the camping wagon.


Wish you a lovely week end.
