Herbs and vegetables

We have lovely weather and the herbs and vegetables on my terrace are growing fast.

I have been knitting out in the sun and here is my new dishcloth.

The cucumbers are ready to be eaten.

but the toamtoes are still green 

and the peppers too 

one half red chili, the rest are green

the leaks are growing fast

and I can pick herbs and rucola every day 

The floers are in desperate need of water.

The parsley has lived through the winter in this pot but the other two are new

It is so nice to watch the cucumber bloom

This is another dishcloth not my colours at all.
Not much sewing or weaving lately but the summer holiday is long and not far away for me.

Long time, no writing, again

The months have passed away fast and I have neither been blogging nor sewing.

In the beginning of May I went to Lillehammer with two friends to see a beautiful excebition 1001 threads it is called.
I only show you a few pictures of lovely patchwork and weaving and i would recommend you to go and see for yourself.

Old quilts.

Quilting by the Norwegian artist Inger Johanne RAsmussen.

Tapestry made late 1800 or early 1900 by Frida Hansen

I have done some knitting, but I really need some inspiration to get on the track again.
Here are my latest finishes a neck warmer and wrist warmers.

I have been knitting some mittens and here are three pairs.

On the 24th of May my quilt guild went on a trip to Tønsberg to Quiltefryd and here are my purchases.

I am looking forward to using them and have some ideas. I will show you when they are finished.
Sommer holiday in 15 days and I will hopefully spend much time sewing.
