The view from my window

Dear Vi,

We arrived in the Yukon three weeks ago today. Goodness, how the time flies! Today, I thought you might like to see what I see when I look out my cabin windows!

The cabin is really just one big room, with a divider that sections off the “bedroom.” We have four windows, one each facing north, south, east and west.

Of course you’ll recognize this west-facing view, taken out my front window. Look close and you’ll see Mr. C putting in the dock. The ice pushed it up on shore and then dragged and twisted it a bit, finally leaving it high-centered on a large rock. Happens every year. 

Turn to your left and you’ll see this  view from above the kitchen counter, facing south:

Now another quarter turn to your left and you’ll be facing east. This is the lovely view I see every morning from my pillow. There is a screen on this window, so it looks pretty fuzzy. Sorry about that.Last but not least, one more turn to your left and you are now facing north. This is the window over the couch in the living room. I hope you enjoyed the little tour!

What’s your happy place?



Lets go to…Norway!

Well, my Introduction to the Circumpolar North course has ended, and …

insert drum roll here…

I got an A+. Yup, you read that right! A Plus!!!! Whoooeee!

In honour of this remarkable achievement, let’s brew ourselves a cup of glögg and continue our crafty bloggers tour of the Circumpolar North! Let’s go to Norway!

These blogs are all registered at Quilting Blogs (see the link on the sidebar), making them relatively easy to find. I had a few chuckles with google translator’s interpretation at times…that is definately worth a laugh if you need one! Thank you to all the lovely bloggers who registered and who are featured here.

Without further ado…Leka at LekaQuilt makes and sells these adorable coin purses!

May at Mays Quilteblog is a talented knitter. I am so drawn to these socks & slippers! I would love to try a pattern like this.

And look at this adorable little dress that Toja from Tojas Puslerier has knit!

Mari at ZewNice in Ålgård is making cool table runners:

And just look at this fabulous hand-knit Christmas stocking that I found on Skaperglede!

I found this quilt at Ann Marie‘s website. It’s in a book called Simply Fat Quarters by It’s Sew Emma. And guess what?! I also have this book. What a world…quilters are all on the same page everywhere you go!

…and another thing we have in common is a cabin. Kinda looks familiar, eh?

Last but not least we’ll pop in for a little visit with Cecilie who blogs over at Bergfraus in Sunndal, Møre og Romsdal in Norway:

Thanks for joining me on a whirlwind tour of Norway!
