RAOK, WIP, School show etc.

First of all. I got the most wonderful package in the mail yesterday from Paula. She sent me a needleroll pattern from my wish list, Forget Me Not Needle Roll – The Sweetheart Tree, and the recommended fabric for it (32ct China White Royal Crown Linen, gorgeous) and another Needle Roll kit from Silkweavers called ‘Summer Days Needle Roll’ with the fabric, threads, beads and button for it! How generous and sweet! I have e-mailed you Paula, not sure if you got my e-mail or not since I haven’t gotten a reply yet. I am very grateful, you are so sweet!

RAOK from Paula

I have started ‘Miss Mary Mack’ but haven’t gotten a lot done as I have been feeling tired and have been trying to go to bed early-ish lately. I am also working on a pinkeep for my friend Brenda, and some other things that will remain secrets for a little while. But here is a pic of MMM.

Miss Mary Mack

I am stitching her on 32ct Belfast in Willow Green with Needlepoint silk, one over one. I love how she is turning out.


Today when I got outside with my daughters, Sumarrós pointed out this cute ladybug that was on the wall just outside our door. Since I had my camera with me (I was going to a school show at Sumarrós’s school later) I took pictures of it. I have only seen a ladybug once before here in Iceland.


I took a bunch of pictures at the school show today. Here are some that are favorites. Images are clickable for a larger view.

The rest of the pictures are here.

  1. *Awesome RAK.
    *I can’t wait to see MMM come to life, I’m so in love with that pattern.
    *I’ve only seen a Ladybug once here also. I love them, they are the cutest.
    *It looks like you all had fun at Sumarrós’s school. Love the embroidery. I remember when I did that at school when I was younger. I even still own my stuff.. somewhere in a box.

  2. Gorgeous Ladybird – I used to see them all the time as a child but I guess our pollution is killing them.
    MMM is looking great so far 🙂

  3. I just wanted to let you know that I did get your message and answered it. Maybe it went into your spam or got lost in cyber-space. I will resend it to you and maybe you will get it this time. Glad you liked what I sent! Nice start on Mary Mack, too =)

  4. Nice gifts and great start on Miss Mary Mack!!
