Two finishes

I have two finishes to show you and little gift I got from my secret Santa at work.

First of all I finished another Magic Doll design. I really love this cute dolls. I have to say though that the back stitch is a bit crazy and seem to take forever. But the outcome is all worth it.

And here she is without the back stitch. The back stitch really completes the piece.

I have another small finish. It´s Soda pattern piece I started a long time ago and I have been picking it up every now and then. It´s a set of 8 small houses and I finally finished the second house.

We had a Secret Santa game at work and I got the best Secret Santa ever 🙂 My Secret Santa stitched me an amazing gift and I totally love it!

I cross stitch...

I know this post is long overdue 🙂

I am now working on Mini Myra again after 7 months pause. I just finished the background on her left and have now started stitching her arm

In March I went to London to meet my Facebook friends Jessica and Tami from USA. Together we went to a stitching show in Olympia and of course we also did some sight-seeing.

I did some shopping at the stitching show. I bought Michael Powell´s Place de Marché.

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….

QS Red Poppy – Finished

I went to a summer cabin in Úthlíð this weekend with my 2 friends Hafrún and Sveina. My main goal for the weekend was to finish QS Red Poppy. Before the clock hit 3 on Saturday afternoon I did my happy-dance! She looks just gorgeous and I really loved working on her!

My weekend was very productive. I had another finish and the first one for Crazy January Challenge 2011. I left out the text that´s supposed to be under the house while I decide whether to stitch the English version or translate it to Icelandic.

Petite House finished

My first finish of the year is Petite House. I thought it would take me longer to finish it but it only took 2 days. Guess I didn´t have that much left 🙂

Now the plan is to finish QS Red Poppy. She´s screaming for my attention!
Think I will also be working on one of the 2011 project as well…just haven´t decide which one yet.

Day 9 – The Village in Fairy Tale

I was working today and on Sundays I´m allowed to take my stitching with me. Of course I did! This pattern includes 8 tiny houses and shops and I started the first one. It´s called Sweet Home.

Moon of your own and LHN ornament

I finished Moon of your own last week and here is finally a picture of her. She was an absolute joy to stitch and I can´t stop admiring her.

I have another finish to show you. It´s an ornament by Little House Needleworks. It´s still missing a red cardinal button which I have to get later and then put together as a little pillow.

Stitchy weekend away and more

I spent last weekend in a summer cabin in Úthlíð with 2 of my stitchy friends Hafrún and Sveina. We really had a great time, we stitched a lot, laughed a lot, ate good food and relaxed in the hot tub with a glass or two of white wine. Here we are really focusing on our stitching.

I started something new in the cabin. It´s called Moon of your own and I´m going to make a pillow out of it for my daughter. I finished the girl´s head and the stars around her in the cabin but this is what she looks like now.
Moon of your own
In the end this will be a picture of a girl sitting on a moon. It´s so colorful and pretty.

Before our trip to the cabin I had been working on few things. I started this piece Petite House. I´m half way done and just need to finish the first floor.

I´ve also made some progress on SK Sunny by HAED. I really needed to put her down for a while since the flower in her hat is a total B***H to stitch. LOL!

I was working on a mermaid piece in 2008. All of a sudden I had the urge to pick it up again. This is how she looked when I put her down in 2008.

And this is how she looks today. As you can see there is a baby appearing in her arms.

I have now put her down again.
