Midsummer is a day in celebration of the summer, every one dress up and bind flowers for the hair. The dresses are often withe and light weight often made of linen or thin cotton fabric. This new dress of mine reminds me of midsummer. It it sew by me in a embroidered cotton fabric with a full lining in batiste cotton.

It is truly summer today the strawberry stalls have popped up all around the city, the whether is warm, very warm the be sweden and I think I might ride my bike to the beach and go swimming. The sea is probably freezing but it might be nice to have a bath any way.
Immie Tee by Carrie Bostick Hoge, my gauge was very different and the modification therefore many. I love this lace panel, it so beautiful. I am tempted to make an Immie blanket as well with the same pattern but I don’t fancy making the lace pattern back and forth, sense every row is quite intensive lace. The result is stunning tho. If you haven’t checked out Carrie Bostick Hoge do so, she is really talented and her designs are stunning.
My first quilt is taking form, at the moment almost all at squares are sewn together, the padding (100% wool) is ordered from filtmareriet, all I need is some fabric for the back.
I am really pleased with the result this far.
