Lot of updates :)

It´s been a while since my last blog although I have been busy stitching 🙂

First of all let me tell you that I came in third place at HAED Bulletin Board 2012 goals challenge, YAY! so I got to choose 1 large and 2 small charts.  These are the ones I chose: Summer Lullaby by Jennifer Nilsson, Mini Hammock White Tiger by Kayomi Harai and QS Alexandra by Hannah Lynn.

So what have I been up to since my last blog! I took a little break from HAED projects. Instead I pulled out an old WIP I last worked on in 2007, the Snowman Tree. I added 3 more snowmen….

This one was for Tami and finished in August 2011. Her theme was Angels.

I am back to stitching HAED Mini Myra and I do have an update but I will share in another post 🙂

My Round Robin has returned home

I totally forgot to post pictures of my own Round Robin which returned home in late June. It only has 4 parts stitched out of 6 but 2 of my friends have asked me if they can finish it for me. So Yay!

I am so really happy with my Round Robin and I think it looks amazing. Thank you so much girls for all your hard work!

This and that

Like usual I have been stitching like crazy 😀 Sorry for the lack of blogging though!

Like I told you in my last blog entry I went to a cabin in the country side with my 2 best friends for a weekend of stitching. I love those weekends and of course we had the best time together. I worked on the 2 pieces below but didn´t finish them until now. Both pieces are also a part of my Crazy January Challenge so now I have 4 out of 15 finished.

I have been working on Cindy´s RR and got her permission to do 2 parts instead of 1 and therefore complete her RR. I have already finished one  part and will start the other one next week. Of course everything has to remain secret until the RR is back in the hands of it´s owner so no pictures just yet!
I also started 2 new HAED projects! Yeah I know I´m crazy! LOL! I´m not ready to post a picture just yet, I want to finish a little more before I do.

Day 13 – Making friends

Todays project is of a snowman making his own friend out of snow. I really love this design by Just Nan and have been meaning to start it for a long time. I just had to include it in my challenge!

Day 7 – Winter Fobs

As much as I hate snow I just love stitching snowmen. And of course I had to include one in my challenge. This one has 2 other fellows with him and I will turn this into a needle roll once finished.  Guess I better not wait for too long as he seems so lonely all by himself!

My first Round Robin

I joined a group on Facebook called World Wide Round Robin and decided to do my first one. We are 6 in my group and will each stitch a picture on each others RR. We are 2 from Iceland, me and Sveina who is in my Icelandic stitching group Allt í kross, Kathryn and Cindy are from UK, June is from Scotland and Ruwani is from Australia. So my RR will travel half way around the world.
The first picture is stitched by it´s owner and here is a picture of mine. My theme is Cute Christmas.

And here is a picture of my fabric. I stitched my picture on the top middle square. When it will return home to me every square will be stitched by these wonderful ladies. Can´t wait to see it finished.

 

Snow Fence

I wanted to stitch something that wouldn´t take too much time. I browsed through my stash and finally decided on Snow Fence by Raise the Roof Design. It took me several evenings to complete but here it is without buttons.

Late last night I managed to finish 4th in the Lizzie Kate series 12 Blessings of Christmas – friend. The word is in Icelandic.

Snowman Trio – Chilly

Ég komst loksins aftur í saumagírinn um jólin og kláraði síðasta snjókarlinn af 3 í Snowman Trio. Það er hann Chilly og hann er eiginlega mitt uppáhald.


I finally managed to finish the 3rd snowman Chilly in the Snowman Trio. He is kind of my favorite and that´s why I saved him for last.

Hér er svo mynd af þeim öllum saman. Ég er búin að setja allar tölur á þá og á bara eftir að ganga endanlega frá þeim.  Ég stefni á að drífa í því strax eftir áramót. Mig hlakkar mikið til að sjá þá alveg tilbúna.


Here they are all 3 of them all buttoned up and looking so cute. So who´s your favorite?

Snowman Trio – Willy og afmæli

Ég kláraði loksins Willy fyrir helgina og er byrjuð á síðasta snjókarlinum. Ég er búin að panta tölurnar fyrir þá en ætla ekki að festa þær fyrr en þeir verða allir tilbúnir. Stefni á að klára þá fyrir jólin.

I just finished Willy the second one in the Snowman Trio serie. I already bought the buttons but thought I would not put them on until all three of them are finished.

Marín átti 8 ára afmæli 19. september. Hún fékk göt í eyrun í afmælisgjöf og það hefur gengið rosalega vel. Engin sýking eða neitt vesen. Hún hélt upp á vinkonuafmælið sitt í Stjörnustelpum og fékk rosa fína hárgreiðslu. Allar stelpurnar fengu hárgreiðslu og klæddust Hawaii búningum og svo dönsuðu þær og skemmtu sér vel.

Snowman Trio – Milly

Var að klára fyrsta snjókarlinn í Snowman Trio. Það var ótrúlega gaman að sauma þennan og þá sérstaklega húfuna. Það vantar að vísu 3 hjartalaga tölur á myndina. Ég þarf að panta þær við tækifæri og festa á hann.

Saumað á 28ct ”Bluebell” Jobelan Þræðir DMC, WDW og Sampler Threads

Snjókarlar 3 af 10

Þá eru þeir orðin 3. Sat til 3.30 í nótt yfir þeim þriðja og kláraði svo afturstinginn í morgunn. Bætti svo við nokkrum snjókornum í dag og lengdi í jólaseríunni þeirra. Mér finnst svo ofsalega fallegir litir í þeim og þeir eru hver öðrum glaðari.

Þetta er búin að vera alveg frábær helgi og æðislegt að fá einn auka dag. Ég er búin að sitja og sauma alla helgina á náttbuxunum og með fullt af nammi. Það gerist ekki betra en það.

2 af 10 snjókörlum

Var að klára annan snjókarl í snjókarla púðanum mínum.

Annars krassaði tölvan mín í dag og er komin í viðgerð. Vonandi þarf ég ekki að bíða lengi eftir að fá hana til baka og vonandi er ekki mikið að.

Snjókarlar – 1 af 10

Ég eyddi gærdeginum í að þrífa allt húsið mitt því ekki veitti af. Ég er búin að sitja yfir Natures Homes alla vikuna og sá að það var þörf á að standa aðeins upp. Í gærkvöldi ákvað ég að taka upp snjókarlapúðann minn og sat yfir honum til 3.30 í nótt. Það voru allir sofnaðir og þá er besti tíminn til að sauma. Náði að klára fyrsta snjókarlinn og er aðeins byrjuð á hattinum á næsta fyrir neðan. Kláraði svo ljósaseríuna í hádeginu í dag.

Ég er að spá í að sauma í þessum alla laugardaga og vonandi verður hann þá tilbúin fyrir jól.

Í dag ætla ég að sauma í Natures Homes. Ég er langt komin með enn eitt húsið. Það er samt svo ótrúleg tímafrekt og mér finnst ég vera búin að vera endalaust með það. En flott er það. Hendi inn mynd um leið og ég er búin.

Hún dóttir mín kom mér á óvart í gær. Hún var að sýna mér hvað hún væri liðug og var voðalega stolt af sjálfri sér. Það var ótrúlegt hvað hún gat sveigt sig því hún hefur aldrei verið í neinum íþróttum nema í skólanum. Vinkona hennar er í fimleikum og hana langar að fara að æfa með henni. Læt 2 myndir fylgja með.
