Don´t bug me

I went to a stitching meeting last night at Guðbjörg´s house and spent a lovely 2 hours with my stitchy friends. I was determined to finish Don´t bug me by The Sweetheart Tree.  I had already made it up as a pinkeep but wasn´t sure how to fasten the cord. With a help from Guðbjörg I succeeded. Thanks so much for your help Guðbjörg! I really love how it turned out!

Summer stitching

Finally I´m able to blog again. My laptop crashed again but has now been fixed. I have been busy stitching though and here is an update of some of the things I finished this summer.

In middle of August I took my family on a little vacation. We stayed in a summer house in Húsafell for a week. We had the best time. We did some sight seeing, relaxed in the hot tub and we tried to take a walk but were too busy picking blueberries on the way so we didn´t get very far 🙂 LOL

I managed to get a lot of stitching done over there. First of all I finished By Golly Be Jolly. As you can see I changed the words into Icelandic.

I also started something new. Don´t bug me when I´m stitching! This is a kit I bought in Florida in summer 2008 and have been meaning to stitch it ever since. I finally dit it and the plan is to finish it as a pinkeep and hang it on my stitching lamp. I translated the words into Icelandic just to make sure my kids understand them!

Two of my coworkers had their babies this summer. Sara got a girl and Eva got a boy. Of course I had to stitch them both a baby card.


And now for some ATC´s. I´m totally hooked on them.
