I have moved


I know that it's been a long time since I've posted. You all know that I do alot other than quilting, and I wanted to tell you about that, but somehow I found it difficult to write about it in a blog which were supposed to talk about quilting.

So after a long break, I've decided to start a new blog - Arctic Strawberries. I hope to see you there.

Best wishes
Inga Helene

Home again

It's Friday night and after being on the road for a week, it's nice to finally be home and have a quiet night with your loved one.

Where two worlds meet

In Kirkenes - where there's only 15 kilometres to the Russian borders, the worlds of eastern and western Europe meet. This is the place for Russian fishermen harboring in Sor-Varanger to watch news, reed Russian papers and have a touch of their homeland. They even operate with both Norwegian and Russian time.

Stage of the week

This week my stage is this one. A joint venture in Kirkenes, combining Norwegian and Russian military musicians for the first time ever, will result in a concert where we are on the stage together. If only this could be the standard way for military forces to resolve things.

It has been long since somebody cared for this house. That's sad
