Lots to share

Thank you all so much for the support about my last post. Also, I want to send out all my best to all of you. I am fully aware that this is a world wide problem and that there are more people that are really worried out there. Take care everyone, we will survive!

Now, lets get to some stitching! Man I have missed sharing my stitching with you guys. I hope that this post makes up for it! I participated in a Mattress Pincushion exchange in my Icelandic Stitching Group ‘Allt Í Kross’ and Edda was my partner. She e-mailed me and told me that she got my package so now I can share what I made for her.

Mattress Pincushion for Edda

Pattern: Alphabet Tree – Blue Ribbon Designs (freebie)
Fabric: 36ct Summer Khaki linen
Thread: Plush Plum – Belle Soie Silk

I loved stitching this and had been wanting to stitch this pattern for a long time. And the Belle Soie silk was so wonderful to stitch with. And I love the final result and Edda says that she likes it also 🙂

I have also been working a little on my stocking and here is a progress picture.

Also, Mini Cottages. I am soooo close to being done. Here is a picture I took on September 28th, before I started working on this project again.

Mini Cottages 1, 2, 3 and the start of 4

And here is how it looks today.

It is sooooo close to being done. I only have to fill in the black of the windows and do the outlines. I can’t wait to get it done!

I have also decided to do some Pink Stitching to show my support for Breast Cancer Awareness. This is a free design from Romy in Austria. I plan on finishing it as a biscornu once the stitching is done.

Well. It is Sunday and my little Karítas is a little sick. She got a high temp yesterday and today it has gone down a bit so she is a little better, but still sick. We plan on taking it very easy today. I will probably try to stitch some more on my Pink project 🙂

I hope you all had a great weekend!
