A new day in July

Early morning and a lovely sunshine.The vacation goes on with time for embroidery,the best way of relaxing and finding the inner calmness.This little embroidery is going to be a decoration for our home in December.The pattern is from "Brodera på linne" by Monica Halléen,a book about swedish traditions in embroidery,mostly in cross stitch.I made it in linen fabric,10 threads per centimeter.In the book they recommended 12 threads per centimeter but I found it easier to do the embroidery on 10 threads.Monica Hallén also hassome lovely patterns in blackwork but about that another day. I wish you all a nice day.Take time to enjoy the glorious summertime.

Vilket vackert broderi! Du är verkligen duktig på att brodera!

Visst är det underbart med sommar:) Just nu blommar lindträden för fullt, och det doftar fullkomligt underbart om dom:)
