Slow down, please!

I don’t like it very much when my life gets as busy as it has been lately. I haven’t even stitched! And that is bad! I went to a stitching night with my Icelandic stitching group on Wednesday and then was the first time I stitched in about 2 weeks! I started the scissor fob kit from Shepherd’s Bush that I posted about in my previous post. And I stitched a little on it last night also. Slowly and surely, I am getting back to stitching and gently pushing down the brake to slow my life down. Work is mostly to blame, but also start of a new school year etc. The end of summer always seems to be the busiest time of the year for me.

Wednesday evening when my stitching group met, my friend Ágústa gave me an early birthday present (my birthday is actually next Monday the 27th). And what a birthday present! 5 pairs of socks knitted by her especially for me! Aren’t they beautiful? Now I will not get cold feet durring winter. My feet are almost always cold and I just ADORE the socks that Ágústa knits for me. They are the best ever!

I have also been getting some surprises in the mail lately. I love getting mail that is not bills! Haha!

Stash from Drfa

My friend Drífa went to the US and bought these patterns for me as I am helping her translating and drawing up the text on Stoney Creek’s Natures Home Afghan in Icelandic instead of English.

From Anette

Anette, whom I did the patriotic biscornu scissor fob for, sent me these patterns. Anette, if you are reading this, thank you so very much! I love them. I feel the urge to start the Chicken Flatbed soon! I just love chickens, hens and roosters!

I decided to reward myself for all my hard work at work and in my life recently and went ahead and bought myself a brand new laptop! A Dell Inspiron 1520. And you know what, it is PINK! I haven’t gotten it yet since they were sold out, but hopefully I will have my baby in my hands sometime next week. I am calling the store on Monday and see if they have any new news on when they will be arriving.

So I have a busy weekend planned but it is all dedicated to stitching. I have an exchange due on August 31st and I haven’t even started it yet :-/ I will probably get it done this weekend though. It is not that hard a piece I decided on doing and the finishing is no biggie either 🙂  I also want to finish my scissor fob, it is so cute.

I have also been designing a little and want to do a little bit of stitching on that piece also.

Obviously I haven’t been reading blogs. I am so sorry, but don’t think that I have forgotten about you all! Not at all. I miss you all terribly. I feel like when I am visiting your blogs that I get to have a little look into your life and I appreciate that and am very thankful for all the wonderful people I have met through blogging. I probably will not read everything I have missed, I think I just need a fresh start. That is also on my list of things to do this weekend, to pay all of you a little visit 🙂 I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am off to make pizza for me and my oldest. We usually always have pizza on Friday’s and she really wanted a home made one now so her wish is my command 🙂
