Happy Midsummer

My favourite flowers in the garden or in the surroundings today.
Mimi asked about the names of the flowers and from the above
Crane´s bill
Lilies of the valley

A long time ago they belived that 7 flowers ,picked on different places and you needed to go over 7 fences ,under the pillow on Midsummer Eve until Midsummer Day and you have dreams about the one you are going to be married with.Today there are not so much fences and we don't think it's possible.
This night is the lightest night and therefore it's a magic night.Everything can happen!?????!!!!!

Today we also celebrate the one who baptized Jesus,Johannes.

This miniquilt (about 7"x7")I made for a swap friend in Canada.I wanted to do something traditional but also a combination of colours and fabrics reminding of Canada,Japan where my eldest son loves and the swedish summer .The yo-yo flower is made of a fabric that reminds me of the swedish summer.

The summertime comes to us

This time a year we have not so many flowers.Now we really long for the symphony of flowers and real summer with warm air.I hope I can use some of the early beauties as an inspiration for the doll quilts I'm going to do when my holidays starts in 10 days.In the meantime I 'm knitting a pullover in blue cotton yarn.An hour in the morning and some houres in the evening and maybe it's ready in July.

Today we celebrate the National day here in Sweden.
Have a nice day
