midsummer night's dream
♥ midsummer night’s dream ♥
Midsummer’s Eve is the shortest night
of the year & brings out all sorts of wee
faery folk looking for fun. To see them
you must only sit very still & rub a bit of
fern seed into your eyes at the stroke of
midnight. Wearing this hood helps too.
you can get this pattern 2 different ways:
