My dress

When I posted this picture on my birthday I didn't  know or didn't remember 
that my mother knitted this sweet dress, 
so cute <3

She is a great knitter, has always been.
I have to do a post with some of her works to show you:)

Would have been nice to have the dress now<3 

Have a great weekend

in this beautiful linen yarn and using all kind of difference buttons  


And bow ties for the little gents

nearly all of them are living in other countries
two in New York
two in Norway 
five in Iceland 
and two here in Stockholm    
but they all are where very happy with their new diadems and their bow ties 
and they all look so nice with them 
Thank you for stopping by today
