I love looking at old embroidery and decorative arts.
Here are just a few of the images I took at different museums on our trip to Norway.
One of the two Viking ships at the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo.
This wagon was also inside one of the ships. It is heavily carved and massive. Those wheels were about 36” or more across.
Some of the folk art paintings on trunks, baskets, doors and hutches in the Folk Art Museum.
What I noticed most about the paintings, was that so many of the motifs and designs are still being used in our quilting world today.
Irons, sewing cabinet and embroidered head gear. The embroidery on this hat reminds me so much of Mexican embroidery.
