That's what these jam jars are called, or "Norway jars" in English. They are commonly used to store jam and preserves, and go way back, I'm not even sure how old they are, I only know I'm not able to find them anywhere to buy anymore, so my dear mom gave me a few of hers. The reason they are called Norgesglass, is that "Norway" is written in the glass itself, and on the original glass lid. In a great book Lappesaker by Trine T. Bakke, she had made these cute pincushions on the lid, and I just had to try. I think I will make the next ones with a smaller mid square, this was 1 1/2".
Now DD and I are on our way to Oslo. She has her annual checkup with her asthma/allergy specialist tomorrow morning, and then we're off to a wholesaler to buy fabric! (She's not sad at all about loosing a day at school...)
Have a fantasic week everyone :)
