more

 Above is my wholecloth quilt, printed. I call it "First Snow" and it is quilted very dense.
The day I was hanging my pieces I was lucky to have the first snowfall outside the windows.
I felt in the right place at the right time.

These two are made in the chenille technique. They are snow, lots of snow.

More from LAPPLANDSKAP

 This is paper on board They are my landscapes in a small size. 15x15 cm


 All is about landscapes, my inner and outer ones. 
These are  fabric and they are machine quilted
very tightly. They have the laponian colours  with a little twist



 these landscapes are A5-size,very small, and made from my own fabrics.
 They show my feelings
for the mountain I grew up near. 
It´s all different shapes and most of all, colours. The mountain
changes all the time.

Today is the day



Today is the opening of my exhibition and here you can see part of the room when I´m done
with all preparation. I am very excited and it´s a sunny day with lots of snow outside so I feel
a great welcome home from Nature. It´s like the outside is going inside. Lots of white and cold
colours. I am a very happy person today. And a bit nervous to see if anyone will attend the opening.
