Another weekend away.

A part of my stitching group went away last weekend to the same cabin that we have been to twice before. As always, it was great to get away in good company and have good food and do a bunch of stitching! Sleep late, eat candy and have a little wine. Top of the world. Guðbjörg made great soup on Friday night for dinner, and I made great lasagne on Saturday night. We bought cheesecake for desert, but we forgot to eat it! LOL! All of my pictures can be viewed here.

I spent most of the weekend working on Flea Market Souvenir Sampler by Blackbird Designs. I had done a little stitching on it before I left, but had hardly had the time to do much stitching in the past few weeks. But this is how my project looks like today after the weekend. I am doing this as a SAL with Rósa and the wonderful Anna Stitch Bitch.

Flea Market Souvenir – Blackbird designs
Threads: GAST & WDW as recommended
Fabric: R&R 30ct La Crosse Blend and Kansas City Blend

I have also finished the knitting of the neck warmer and just need to finish off the ends and do the crochet part. I am going do do it a little different from the pattern though. I always have to change things to my liking.

I also started a HAED project! HELP! LOL! It is all Rósa’s fault. She showed me a pattern and then my daughter Sumarrós saw it and she kept begging me to stitch it for her and I ended up saying yes. You can see a picture of what I have done here.

Threads: DMC
Fabric: 28ct Rose Lugana

Well. I have company so I am going to go and stitch some more on my Flea Market Souvenir.

One more thing. While driving to the cabin, we passed this house. It reminded me so much of the houses in the LHN charts that I just had to drive up to it and snap a picture of it! It is now officially my dream house!

    You weekend sounds great! Two days stitching with friends in a lovely cottage! It sounds so relaxing and amusing!
    I cannot wait to see how your Haed project will go on…I have never stitched a HAED project so far… those threads all together make me feel dizzy!… I am sure it will make Sumarròs very happy and proud of her mum! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

    I’m doing two HAEDs! You did not say which HAED you are doing. I would love to know which design. It looks great so far.

  10. I loved looking at your pictures from your weekend out. And your BBD project looks already great. I love this one very much.
    Oh my, you too, started a HAED. I see them on so many blogs and always feel so tempted to start one as well. The colours on yours are gorgeous.

  11. Great progresses! Yay, another HAED!!! I can’t wait to see this one progress! Good job!

  12. as the company that looks so much better stitched than on paper & even better than I had imagined.
