Welcome to week 2 of the Norwegian Club week in review blog.
This week, we’ve been busy finalising work for the Scandinavian Festival. On Monday, we had a meeting with the Brisbane City Council about food safety and stall regulations; followed by a great Scandinavian Festival committee meeting where we announced our contribution for the Festival prize raffle.
A prize for all the senses, the Norwegian Club is presenting a lifestyle hamper for Norwegians and lovers of Norway…. a beautiful hard-cover, gilt-edged edition of Norse Mythology; one of the highest-rated Scandinavian cookbooks (as voted by Goodreads readers); a stunning Nordic landscape painting by our own Laila Bjørnsson; season 1 of the critically-acclaimed Lilyhammer dvd series; and Hugsjá, the magnificent album by Einar Selvik and Ivar Bjørnson (which you can find a stunning review of, here)
I’ve been sewing more of the second viking dress (in a beautiful red with a laced-up back) and am nearly finished with that; so once it’s ready and its new owner is wearing it, I’ll be happy to take photos and upload a blog post on the changes compared to the original blue gown.
And lastly, we had our Norwegian Club Committee meeting – where we ate home-made Norwegian waffles and discussed the upcoming Scandinavian Festival and the Norwegian Club christmas party!
I look forward to chatting with you all again next week!
