A weekend away.

I spent the weekend with my stitching group ‘Allt í Kross’ in a summer house in the south part of the country. It was a great weekend and lots of stitching was done. We had good food, wonderful laughs and off course lots of stitching. I didn’t bring my camera but the girls took a lot of pictures and when they are online I will link to them.

I managed to finish  pieces and made a nice progress on my Fairy Grandmother that I haven’t stitched on for a long time. I have missed stitching on her. The third piece is not pictured since it is for an exchange so I can’t share a picture until it is sent off and in the new owners hands :o)

First up is a biscornu that I finished this weekend. This is another one for my friend Brenda.

I had such a fantastic time away. I really needed to get away and spend time with friends. Last week my younger daughter Karítas was jumping on the sofa and fell and hit her head on the sofa table. As I rushed to go and get her something happened in my back and I was completely stuck, I couldn’t move! I have been recovering from that all last week and am feeling a lot better, but I am still sore. I am going to sleep on my heat blanket tonight so that I will be able to go to work tomorrow since I didn’t got to work at all last week, except for Monday. Karítas got two stitches in her forehead. The stitches were removed today and she is doing great. It was so scary when she fell. I am not squeamish at all when it comes to blood, but it is always hard to see your baby bleed :-/
Anyway, it is getting late and I am going to get into bed and read a little. I am almost finished with ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ so exciting!

  1. Yeah the weekend was the best… Hope Karítas recovers quickly … Seeing them get hurt is always hard. And doesnðt change as they get older does it? I love that book & I’m reading it again.

    Hugs & kisses

    Takk fyrir frábæra helgi. Biscornu púðarnir eru æðislegir og gaman að sjá hvað þeir breytast mikið bara við að skipta um lit. Ég á örugglega eftir að nota fríu munstrin.

  7. Your biscornus are beautiful! Fairy Grandmother is also beautiful. I started this one years ago -she’s been a UFO for way too long! 🙂
