Summer Vacation 2015

Not much to show for in the crafting section, only these pot holder for my mom (as ordered). I have made many of these, see info in earlier posts.

I had a great week in Lofoten, Norway with my family, parents and uncle. Did get time for some horseback riding at Hov Hestegård, a memorable time "tølting" along the beach.
Icelandic horse Mimir.
I visit the Skral festival in Grimstad and listen to Hozier. <3 <3
Later my husband and I went to England; here are some pictures:
Tracy Park & Golf in Wick
Victoria Park, Bath
The Island Chapel in St.Ives
St. Michael's Mount outside Penzance
The Bear Hotel in  Devizes
My 18 year old son got his driving license this summer, see him drive out of the yard for the first time was a milestone.  He has spent the last fourweeks in the US. He has been a counselor at a summer camp. I even got to read about him in the local paper Leader Telegram! I am very proud of him. The biggest event is though seeing my cabin being built up in the mountains. It actually made me cry the first time I saw it. It should be ready for Christmas. Got to make quilts, curtains, and furniture this fall!
Now back to work!
