Journal 2008 - Pages 6 and 7

It's a long time since I made any pages for my 2008 Journal, but today I finished these two scrap quilts (8,5 x 11,5"). The inspiration came from Quilting Arts Magazine.
The Red Robin is my favourite bird - The last years we've had some in the garden through the winter, although they are birds of passage...
Please don't forget my Giveaway - I'll draw two names on the 1st of November.

This is one of four nearly similar quilties (6 x 6") I've made for a swap organized by Lenna Andrews. The swap is called "Shades of the Forest". I'll send Lenna my quilties, and in a few weeks time, I'll receive four pieces made by four different artist. How exciting!!
Take a look at Lenna's blog, she organizes a lot of swaps!

I used a fabric with a leaf pattern as background, covered it with snippets of net and Angelina cut in leaf shapes, covered it all with organza and free motion quilted before I mounted the fabric on linen and added some couched yarn. We have the most beautiful autumn in my part of Norway, and I've been inspired from all the gorgeous colours we have enjoyed for weeks.

Fruit and Awards

These two wallhangings are inspired by the book "A workshop with Velda Newman". I like the texture of some of the melons. I painted the lemons and orange with water color pencils before quilting. If you click on the photos, you'll see the details.

Lucky me: I have received two blog awards lately!! The first one from Peg and the second from Annica. Thanks a lot ladies - you make me blush!! - and it means a lot to me.
I'm supposed to give these awards to other bloggers, but this time I just can't decide which ones to select. So, if you read this and know that you are among my blog friends, please feel free to copy the awards to your blog.
