17. May

Since my mum has been visiting me for the last week and a half, I haven't got much to show you craft wise. I have been working on Maja's poncho (whilst chatting with mum) but I haven't got a photo of it yet... Instead I'll show you some photos from the 17th of May celebration (Norway's national/ constitution day) in Edinburgh...

We got quite a bit of attention on the train in to Edinburgh, wearing our national costume (Nordlands bunad)... especially the girls... But then again, they looked soooo cute!
I counted 6 people in Nordlands bunad (same as mine)... yay!! But there was a lot of people in other bunad (Norwegian national costume) in Edinburgh this year. The weather wasn't "all that", but at least it wasn't raining... which is good for Scotland...

There were even celebrities in Edinburgh that day... Gok Wan from "How to look good naked" He didn't have anything to do with the Norwegian parade though....
Back home again... time for a photo shoot and some snacks...

Så hyggelig å høre fra en annen Scandiooligan. (S) Du lager jammen mye fint selv du. Jeg er virkelig kjempeimponert.
Så flott at dere bruker bunad og det hele på 17 mai. Dere ser flotte ut, hele gjengen.

Jeg lager en link til bloggen din, så finner jeg deg igjen.
