Sewing day in iHanna’s Studio

Sewing day in iHanna’s Studio

I love having friends (and sometimes one or two small friends) over in my studio. It is super fun to share from my stash, sometimes papers and sometimes other materials. This was a sewing day. And since I have a lovely collection of pretty fabrics, that’s what we took out (though I might have kept […]

365 Collages | Week 35 | Paper Patchwork Edition

Summer Ending Summer is ending, but my collage adventure continues into the autumn and hopefully until the end of this year. If that happens I will have created 365 collages this year.

January quilt project

January quilt project

When mom was here in October she helped me cut squares from some of the fabrics that I’ve been collecting. I noticed I had quite some fabrics in brown shades, so I decided to make a TV-quilt in browns. I really like browns, especially in a combination with other colours like pink and orange. Mom […]
