Results after a stitchy weekend!

I spent most of my weekend on my couch with my stitching in my hands. And I did manage to get a lot done. On Friday, three women from my Icelandic stitching group came over and we stitched and chatted throughout the evening. Thank you Aisté, Sissú and Guðbjörg for a great evening!
On Saturday I went to the mall for about an hour and bought myself two new shoes. One are pink, the others are green. They are adorable! Then I came home and then another woman from my stitching group, Hafrún, came over and we stitched. Then Aisté showed up again and the three of us ended up having dinner together that I cooked and after dinner we sat down again and stitched some more. I gave Hafrún the small set I finished some time ago as her PIF gift. So now I only have two PIF left to do, one for Guðbjörg and one for Sveina. I finished ‘The Rain Fell’ on Saturday and started another project.

‘The Rain Fell’ by Little House Needleworks – Finished July 12th.
Stitched with Crescent Colors and DMC threads on 30ct Americana Blend Linen from R&R Reproductions.

The other project I started after finishing The Rain Fell I managed to finish last night. It is a scissor case and a scissor fob for my friend Brenda. I have been making her lots of biscornus because she loves them, but I was getting a little bored and running out of ideas (now I have lots of new patterns for them, haha!) so I asked if it would be OK to make her some other things as well. She said yes and since then I have made her a pinkeep and now this scissor case and fob.

Hope you like it Brenda!

I have this week off from work so I plan on having fun with my daughters, even go camping if it stops raining, do some stitching, and a little cleaning. Just try to enjoy the little vacation I get this summer 🙂 I hope you all had a great weekend!
