Today we are meeting Anne-Lise. Such a pretty name. :)
Anne-Lise lives in Slagelse, Denmark. This is what Wikipedia has to say about it. "Slagelse, a town in east Denmark, is in Slagelse municipality on the island of Zealand. It is about 100 km (62 mi) southwest of Copenhagen. The population is 32,005 (1 January 2014).
In the 11th century, Slagelse had a mint and was an important trading center. The city has an 11th-century church, and nearby is Trelleborg, a Viking fortress.
Hans Christian Andersen studied in the grammar school in this city for a few years but described it as a "nuisance"."
Can you see Slagelse on the map below? It's on Sealand Island (not Zealand, Wikipedia). Anne-Lise doesn't live very close to Haderslev where Anette lives. I wonder if they know each other.
Anne-Lise has this to say...
"I am 71 years old, retired and a widow. I have no children of my own but a stepdaughter with two boys. I have been quilting for 8 years."
Short but sweet, Anne-Lise. It is lovely to get to know you. And Anne-Lise sent a photo of herself. I would have guessed she was about 50 years old....or maybe 40....
