Preview


My book, “Gledesspredere – frittgående applikasjoner” (with the danger of getting lost in translation: "Rays of sunshine – free ranged appliqué") was presented at the publisher Cappelen Damm’s craft club website yesterday.

The book will physically be at the publisher’s at March 28th and shipped to me soon after that. It has 50 little quilts and a gallery of projects made in different materials. I had a blast stitching, painting, gluing and playing with the shapes, and could probably fill another book with just these.

You can expect a giveaway – and pictures. I’m waiting for the high resolution photos; the first time my work is professionally photographed I’ll most certainly use them rather than my own ill lit snapshots taken in a hurry before I dropped the quilts off back in December:)

If you can’t wait, why don’t you pop over and have a look here and here; even my best quilting buddies haven’t seen the quilts yet...

  7. Love, love, love it! The sneak peak is wonderful!!! You are a philosopher, too. Where will the loving couple live? I loved Georg the chicken, and the long legged birds. The cute cats and dogs, I can see them as puppets. What else could possibly be in the rest of the book? It must be amazing.
    Congratulations on a job well done... and on getting published (no small feat). I am so proud to know you.
    Hugs!
