Ooops...life intervened! Jet lag is gone, puppy is FINALLY better, but internet at my house is abysmal, so I'm at the coffee house, with lots to show and tell!

We took the overnight ferry from Copenhagen to Oslo; our accomodations were
spartan, but the ferry trip was fun

Oslo is also a beautiful city...and our good weather held.
 (I don't know why I look so grumpy...see what I'm about to eat!)

Lunch of mussels and frites...and a walk through the city.

We visited an open air museum and several "stave" churches...

We left Oslo and took two days to travel to Bergen, on the coast...up, up through the mountains

stopping at a charming, art-filled family run hotel en route...

I will finish up with Bergen on my next post.

I have been in the studio a bit since my return...I made a pair of pants,
V8929, View C, by Marcy Tilton. The fabric is a paisley denim by EmmaOneSock.
They are so comfortable, I've hardly had them off my body for 10 days!

The Bride and Groom, whose 1st anniversary is tomorrow, are on a two week anniversary road trip and will be stopping overnight next weekend. It's hard to believe a year has gone by so quickly!


Come on over to Visible Monday to see this week's visible women!
