Ornament from Guðbjörg, and another made by me.

Two days ago, my wonderful friend Guðbjörg came over with the ornament she made for me in the ornament exchange in our Icelandic stitching group. She stitched this beautiful Prairie Schooler ornament and it is just gorgeous. The photo does not do it justice since taking pictures these days is really hard because of the constant darkness. We only get about 2-3 hours of daylight these days, and we have loads of snow. So yeah, pictures are a bit dark and heavy, but the beauty is there, promise 🙂

Ornament exchange from Guðbjörg

She also gave me some chocolates. Thank you so much Guðbjörg! I really love my ornament, it is the perfect addition to my slowly growing collection of stitched ornaments.

The last two days I have been working on a little gift for a package exchange at work that took place today. I decided to stitch this fun little snowman ornament and managed to finish it late last night.

Snow - Snjór
Design: Let it Snow by Barbara Ana
Threads: DMC
Fabric: Blue hand dyed opalescent in 28ct from my stash

I translated Snow to Snjór in Icelandic and added a button for the snowflake in the top corner. I am very happy with the outcome and Sigrún, the co worker who got my package, was thrilled with it 🙂

I also want to thank Dovile for the wonderful Christmas card that arrived today!

I think I might be getting sick. I have a stuffy nose and a sore throat and am taking turns in being very hot and very cold. Ugh. I do not have time for this! My sister is graduating next Saturday and then I have to do all my shopping, gift wrapping, cleaning etc. Oh well, Christmas will come no matter what 🙂 I hope you are all feeling good and that you are getting ready for the Holiday, however you choose to spend it 🙂
