Nåden pustar from Iinas Sewing Machine Poetry




Den nye oversettelsen av Bibelen kom ut i 2011. Noen år senere ble samlingen "Bibeldikt" gitt ut, med dikt skrevet av 88 norske forfattere. Her kan du lese mer "Bibeldikt".

"Nåden pustar" er skrevet av Ingrid Storholmen og blant de dikt i samlingen som har gjort mest inntrykk på meg. Utgangspunktet for dette diktet er Johannes 21, 1-14, som du finner her.
"Nåden pustar" har på en måte ligget på vent, jeg har hele tiden visst at en dag  vil tiden være inne for å ta fram diktet og ikke minst: for å sy en art quilt.

Mixed Media Dabble from Creating Chaos

I have long been a fan of Maggie Grey having been to a couple of workshops with her while I was a member of Context some years ago as well as subscribing to her Workshop on the Web (WOW).  Things have changed with WOW and now instead of the workshops being published online, there is now a WOWbook that was first published in December with the plan to print two each year.  I personally like this more than the online format as I always printed them off so to have a book is much better for me.

As well as ...

Starling in Hawthorne from Kit Lang, Fiber Art

Happy new year!


First finish of 2018, first blog post in many moons, who knows, it could be the start of something new!


I started this in 2017 - maybe even the beginning of 2017, I'm not sure - stitching birch bark on fabric and then putting one of my painted fabric birds on it, and then I lost it.

No, not metaphorically, I  mean sometime around March, I actually lost it. I'd done a studio clean up, and when I came back a few days later, I couldn't find it.

I looked of course, but I remembered it ...

Pin It Weekly #226 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I haven't been posting as often as I'd like, but this upset in my already-crazy life has left me rather crumpled. We're all beginning to put things right in the sense that we're finding our places in this new order. More on our recovery from the fire at our son's home later. Let's enjoy a few pins and forget my insane world.

I've been especially interested in mixed media work lately. I think it may have to do with some of my "playing" in recent months. There are elements in these that are ...
