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.
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 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.
I already started it and I absolutely love it!
I recently finished a Soda Stitch piece called Tale of love in the grove.
Below are some WIP´s since we all love those 🙂
And at last here is a Soda Stitch piece I finished a long time ago but always forgot to post in here. It´s called Lover of Spring light.
I have a couple of new starts. First one is a new Soda pattern and I have already finished stitching the girl.
Second one is this cute owl piece I found free online.
Freebie can be found here
And I finished one more snowman in my Snowman Tree. Now there is only one left which I plan to finish soon 🙂
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….
…..and then 2 more 🙂
I started a new Soda Pattern piece, You over Flower. It displays a boy and a girl and I finished the boy´s face.
And finally I can share with you the Round Robin pieces I stitched for Tami and Jessica as they have both been sent home 🙂
This one was for Tami and finished in August 2011. Her theme was Angels.
And this is the piece I stitched for Jessica. Her theme was snowmen.
I am back to stitching HAED Mini Myra and I do have an update but I will share in another post 🙂
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.
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.
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.
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.
In the end this will be a picture of a girl sitting on a moon. It´s so colorful and pretty.
