Pincushions and nature

The last days I've made some new pincushions. One of them were filled with lavender. As we had a fantastic weather this weekend, I took them out for a hike and a photo shoot. We even met a snake, a viper, the only poisonous in Norway, and I was fascinated to see the beautiful pattern on it. I didn't dare to put my pincushion next to it though.

OMG finish for September

I had a plan at the beginning of the month to finish these two small zipper pouches. Now it's done, and I have a new pouch for my mobile charger. These small pouches are so useful for many things.

Thanks to Elm Street Quilts I have finished projects every month this year. I hope to keep up the good work also the rest of the year.

Scrap Happy September

Every mid month I continue making these scrappy and recycled blocks. Soon I have enough blocks for another quilt. For more scrappy inspiration visit Rutigt's Scrap Happy Day

When I made my four blocks of the month, I suddenly found that one of them was not as the others. I might have a new option for these blocks. What do you think? This time I had to unpick and resew the block.

Mini La Passion in September

We've had a fantastic summer here, and I've opened all twelve windows on my mini La Passion. Now it's time to start closing them. I've soon finished the first diamond window as you can see. The weight is 200 gram higher than November last year, and the hexagons are 1/4". 

I love this pattern by Grit's Life. The link will take you to a gallery showing many beautiful versions of this quilt.

Vintage

I love challenges, and this month the theme from Art Journal Journey is vintage. As I often work with old fabrics, this was perfect for me. I've chosen some fabrics, buttons and other stuff from my grandmother's clothes and boxes. She was born in 1909, was sewing and weaving, and collected fabrics, buttons and actually everything.  

This was a fun page to make, and I might make more of them this month. Soon I have pages enough for a book for myself. Enjoy the page and the details. There's even a secret pocket with a picture of my grandmother and myself from I was just some months old, so long ago.

One Monthly Goal for September

I'm still digging in my box of UFOs. I have some really big projects there, but this mont it has to be a small one for Elm Street Quilts' challenge. 

I love using old fabrics and scraps. Here I've used old jeans to make small pouched for different purposes. My goal this month will be to put zippers on and finish these two pouches.

Type or text

This month the theme for Art Journal Journey is TYPE. I had so many plans in my head, but when I try to put it down on my denim, it isn't actually what I had thought. Still, I'm developing my skills, and I have a new page for my art journal. As it was difficult to type on fabric, I've used some text on cards and fabrics.

OMG finish for August

I never thought I would finish this one, but now it's done, and I've got a new runner in my kitchen. I had made two hexie flowers to go with the hexies on a mug I got from a friend years ago. Now I can keep the runner and the mug together. 

Thanks to Elm Street Quilts I have found and finished lots of UFOs so far this year.
