I finished the owl piece last night! And I have to say I loved stitching every single one of them 🙂

Crazy January Challenge 2011- Day 1

First of all let me wish you all a Happy New Year 2011.

I know I must be mad but I decided to sign up for the Crazy January Challenge 2011 organized by Minna on her blog.

The rules are simple:

1. Start stitching a new design every day, from January 1st to January 15th. So by January 15th you have 15 new WIPs to stitch!

2. Finish everything you started stitching during the year 2011.

3. Show photos in your blog if you have one, in January and during the whole year while you stitch.

4. Have fun stitching!

I spent the very first day of the new year browsing through my stash to find the 15 projects I want to start the next 15 days.  I can´t really promise I will be able to finish everything by the end of the year but I will sure try my best.

Here is my list but not necessarily in the right order. I´ll just decide each day what to start working on next.

There will be a new start tomorrow and of course another photo!

I made a little scissor fob as an extra x-mas gift for my mum. I also added tiny red scissors to go with it and it looked just perfect together.

Home is where the heart is

Ég er búin að vera að dunda mér við þessa litlu mynd í nokkra daga. Ég heillaðist af henni þegar ég sá hana á blogginu hjá Eddu þar sem hún var kláruð sem nálarrúlla og er búin að vera á leiðinni að sauma hana síðan. Ég var ekki alveg viss hvað ég ætlaði að gera úr henni en endaði á að gera pinkeep þar sem að ég átti efni í bakhliðina sem passaði fullkomlega við munstrið.

I´ve been meaning to stitch this design for a while and finally got around to it. I wasn´t sure what to make of it but ended up making a pinkeep since I had the perfect fabric for the backside. I´m very happy with how it turned out.

Pinkeep fyrir Lindu

Ég bjó til þennan Pinkeep fyrir Lindu í Pinkeepskiptunum í Allt í kross. Það er frekear fyndin tilviljun að við vorum dregnar saman. Þetta er fyrsti pinkeepin sem ég geri og ég held hann hafi bara heppnast vel. Efnið sem hann liggur á er efnið sem er á bakhliðinni.

Ég skilaði pinkeepnum í seinna laginu. Ástæðan er að litli voffinn okkar hann Patti er búinn að vera týndur núna í rúmar 2 vikur. Öll leit hefur engan árangur borið og maður hefur ekki getað fest sig við neitt annað en að leita eða hugsa til hans. Ég læt fylgja með mynd af Marín og Patta á góðri stund. Marín var að horfa á teiknimyndir og Patti steinsvaf í fanginu á henni á meðan. Við þráum ekkert heitar en að finna hann aftur og koma honum heim í hlýjuna og öryggið. Svo yrði hann að sjálfsögðu knúsaður endalaust.
