Another fob and an exchange!

First. I just went and got the mail and there was an exchange in there for me. This is from Emily in Australia who was my partner for the Fall/Halloween themed exchange over at the XStitch Exchange community on LJ. I choose Fall since Halloween is not celebrated here in Iceland.
Somehow Emily found out how to spell Fall in Icelandic – Haust. And she designed this one herself! I am very happy to have gotten such a nice exchange! I have e-mailed Emily personally but if you read this also, thank you so much!

Next. I got a request through my blog to make a scissor fob for a girl named Berglind. She wanted it in blue colors and she wanted her letter B to be included in the design. I choose to do ‘B – is for buttons’ by Brooke Nolan, a freebie from her Stitchers Alphabet series. I think it turned out really cute.

Snow Scissor Fob.

I finished the scissor fob I have been working on lately. It took me a lot longer since I was working on many other things at the same time, including a Fall themed exchange that I finished on Friday and mailed off to Australia today. I hope it makes it over there in good time, I am always worried about sending things such a far distance.

Anyway, here is the scissor fob all finished up:

Sumarrós stayed home from school today. She had a fever yesterday and has a slight cold. I think she will be able to go to school tomorrow though. We have spent the day watching movies and I have been stitching. I asked her if she didn’t want to stitch but she didn’t feel like it. I understand her perfectly, usually when I am sick myself, I don’t feel like stitching at all.

Well I am off to make some banana bread!
