Happy Summer!

Today is the first day of summer here in Iceland. I know, it is really weird to have the first day of summer this early in this part of the world, but hey, I don’t make the rules 😉 It is not very nice out there so I am not sure if me and the girls will be going out much today, but I do have a craving for going out for a short drive and maybe buy some ice cream or something. We will see what the day brings.

My friend Brenda sent me a package with fabrics and floss this week (I stitch for her in return and make her biscornus etc.) and this is what I got:

Stash From Brenda

WDW threads – White Lightning, Whiskey and Turkish Red
GAST threads – Copper, Buttercrunch and Sweet Petunia
32ct Belfast – Raw, Cafe Mocha and Country Mocha
Thanks Brenda, I love everything you send!

And here is my progress on ‘Quaker Christmas’ I absolutely love this piece! Here is my earlier update with the info about what threads/fabric I am using etc.

Quaker Christmas

I got sent my partner for the Pinkeep Exchange in my Icelandic stitching group and I have narrowed my choises down to two charts. Now I just need to decide which one to stitch and pick out some lovely threads and fabric. I have almost decided on the fabric, but I am still trying to decide what thread to use. I am leaning towards a beautiful silk from Vikky Clayton I just need to pull it out and see how it goes with the fabric I have in mind! Oh, I love picking threads and fabric for a new project!

ATTN! Judy and Barbie – I sent out your prizes yesterday. Please let me know when you get them!

    Happy Summer! I wonder why Summer is so early in Iceland? Is it because the season is short? Hmmm…now I’m going to have to go investigate 😉
    Hope you got a big ice cream cone in celebration of Summer!
