New year - new projects

Hello and happy new year everyone. Today's first picture is taken on the last day of 2006 and shows the river Nidelven in Trondheim. The sky was stunning and I just had to share it with you all.

Yesterday evening we played for 2000 people! It's not often we do that, but our new years concerts are almost sold out every year. Nice music, a festive audience and champagne on the back room afterwards is a nice start on our professional year.

Crafts wise I've set some goals. In January I'm going to:

  • work on Richards quilt

  • finish the crocheted bed spread

  • knit mittens

  • make Dear Jane blocks

I'm also making new curtains for our dining room. I bought some lovely fabric in Trondheim and I'm looking forward to redecorate the room.
Last year someone asked to see a closeup of the quilting in my quilting etude. I do not know if this is close enough, but here's at least a better photo than earlier published. The thread is the gorgeous silk thread I'm using for quilting, redwork and embroidery.

I wish you all a creative new year.

Inga the colours of the sky are beautiful. Does Trondheim experience Polar Nights?

Good Luck with your goals for January. Is Richard's quilt the baby quilt you posted about?

Your quilt is exquisitely beautiful. . .as is the sunset scene on the city and water!

Thank you for sharing!

PS: If you saw my blog today, I hoped you laughed at my ski picture! I thought of you when I posted it (grin).
