Enjoy the little things in life

P1080568Many small pieces into a 6” block – 154 pieces to be exact – yes I am still Just Plain Nuts!

P1080569I do enjoy making these blocks, but it is a lot of work¨to get them as accurate as I like :-)


P108056617. May we celebrate Constitution Day here in Norway, and it is a big family celebration through the day.
Everybody wear their best clothes, and if you own a bunad (national costume), this is the day to wear it.
DD2 and I had to be a little silly with the camera – it was fun :-)

such a pretty costume, I have seen several blogs from Norway today with people dressed in them - such a lovely tradition you have.

Your national dresses are very beautiful, and it is great to have a tradition for wearing them.
The blocks are stunning, the quilt will be so lovely.

The national dress your daughter is wearing is so beautiful!

And those blocks wiht 154 pieces... each one must have taken hours to complete. It's going to be stunning when it's finished.

Your daughter's national costume (and daughter too!) is beautiful! I like how you captured the flag in the background of the photos too! Cheers! Evelyn
