Hot and Cold

It is so hot here I am dreaming about winter.  In winter I normally dream about summer.  I just wish I could have my old summer and winter back again.  These extremes are driving me crazy.  I have bookmarked a whole lot of knitting I would like to start and then got to thinking about a winter coat.  I don't need a heavy winter coat, it rarely gets very cold but a light woolen one would be suitable, and I thought some embroidery on it might be nice. 

Onto the internet to see what I could find starting with my favourite designers one of whom is Gudrun Sjoden. (I remember when I first found her shop in Denmark, I didn't want to leave.)  These designs have been machine stitched but I think they would have been taken from traditional embroidery.  I found them all on Pinterest.

I like the centre design  the best.  So it is time to hit the fabric shops and see what I can find.  I will have to get started soon to have it ready for winter.

Gudrun Sjöden is very popular in Sweden and here she has played with old Swedish embroidery designs. I am looking forward to seeing your winter coat but isn't it a bit too hot to start working on it now?

Yes they are and I rushed out into the heat and bought some wool fabric.
