When we were young

 I can remember when I was young all the mothers in the neighborhood stayed at home. Even if our own mother was out of the house for a while, we could go to whatever house with an adult to get a slice of bread or something to drink, or just to talk or play. We were as a big family. Such a safe world. I don't think it's like that any longer, even in Norway.

This is how I remember my mother or neighbors waiting for us after school. Thank you Chris for this challenge on Art Journal Journey.

My first quilt

 This quilt I made more than thirty years ago, and it was my first big quilt. It is really not quilted very much though. I've been visiting it these couple of days, and it was so fun seeing it again. It's 2m x 2m, so quite big. And I actually like it very much.








And a real log cabin

Doors

The theme for Art Journal Journey this month is doors. I love looking at different doors, and have tried to construct a special one for this wonky house. Fabrics, thread and buttons are materials I most often use.



This is the inspiration for the door.

Kawandi quilting

 I've seen so many beautiful kawandi quilts, and have tried it out earlier this year. Now was the time to try again, and I made another little needle case. So relaxing work, and I recommend that you make a try if you haven't done yet.

More summer mystery

We are half way through this summer mystery from Laundry Basket Quilts. These are my blocks for step 2, 3, 4 and 5. As I use scraps, I have used different fabrics. I also had to buy some new fabrics, as I don't have many pink scraps.

Fish

 It's been a while since I posted for Art Journal Journey. This month the theme is fish, and I just made a fish page for my journal. So here it is.

Norwegian Snowflake Quilt

This project I started last year. Whenever I have some small blue or white scraps, I make some new blocks for this quilt. Yesterday it was so cold here that I decided to make some new blocks for this one. I hope that it will give us summer soon. You can read more about this quilt here

A summer mystery

 I just couldn't resist any longer. The Summer Mystery from Laundry Basket Quilts is here.  I'm really good at starting things, so I just started this challenge. My intention is to use fabrics from my stash, scraps and some yardage. And as my pink rhododendron is at it's best just now, it inspired me in my colour choice. 

These are my first blocks, and I have to wait until Wednesday to get the next step.

Micro minis

 I've taken part in the #microminisal this month, as I do in May every year. Good to just make and finish something without having to plan at all. These are my takes in this challenge. So nice to use as small presents for friends I meet in the summer holiday. They are all between 2" and 3" square. You can see it with a spool on the second picture.
