Summer has arrived

The last days we have had wonderful summer weather.  Feels so good after a long and cold winter.  Hope the warm weather has come to stay.


May 17th is Norways constitution day and it is always fun to dress up in our bunader and go to see the parade.


This year together with my DD and her boyfriend.


Long time since I could enjoy some sewing out on the porch.  But now the temperature is so good. On May 17th I sat outside stitching almost all evening.


Two new books has arrived and I love them.  I have looked through them so many times now, and still discovers something new each time.  Wonderful quilts in both books.


So many quilts I would love to make.  You can look at the Di Ford book here, And to see photos from the Petra Prins book you can visit her blog here.

Saying for today:

How very nice you look in you´re dresses! Can I ask you what book it is on the first picture? The one with the embroiderypatterns in? I so want to start with theese primitive embroiderys but I have difficulties finding patterns.

You both look beautiful in your dresses - what a wonderful tradition. Summer has been stopping by teasing us with some warm temps and then bringing back in the cool again. I have hope lol.
