Last night I went to a stitching night at my friends Rósa’s house. It was wonderful to meet the girls and I even saw two new faces! My stitching group, Allt í Kross, is a Yahoo group for Icelandic people interested in stitching. I do not accept foreign members, not because I don’t want to, but because I want to keep the group as it is, for Icelanders only. Not everyone is comfortable in writing in English and there are so many other groups out there for people who can and do speak English. It is nothing personal, believe me 🙂
Many of the members do quilting, crochet, scrap booking, knitting, and other crafts also, but the main focus of the group is stitching. All crafts are welcome though 🙂 We currently have 62 members that are all over Iceland, in Norway, Denmark and the US. The only things we have in common is that we are Icelandic and we like stitching 🙂 I love my group, it is such a friendly place and you can always turn to them for advise being stitching related or personal. I have gained so many good friends from it I don’t even know where to begin.
Back to last night. I took two projects with me and ended up starting and finishing up this little cutie!
Now I want to get the rest of the seasons done. It was a fast and enjoyable stitch. Oh, speaking of Just Nan… I just got Barnabee’s Bride in the mail on Wednesday! It is so beautiful and I can’t wait to start stitching it! Aiste and Guðbjörg from my stitching group also got one each so we are probably going to meet up for an evening/a weekend and stitch and finish it up together. I can’t wait!
