Anyone remember me?

Oh it has been long. Way too long. Sorry I went MIA, but sometimes life just gets in the way of things. Everything is good though, I have just been really busy with, yeah, life. So it has been good and fun 🙂

I got an e-mail from Jennifer who won my bloggaversary draw telling me that she got the package that I sent her. You can see pictures of the goodies over at her blog.

I am however going to show you some detailed pictures of the first notebook that I finished and was a part of the gift to her. I am absolutely in love with how it turned out and it was very hard to give up, but Jennifer tells me that she loves it so I know it went to the right place. I am definitely going to be using this finishing technique more!

Pattern is from LHN’s The Rain Fell. I changed it a lot to fit my ideas.

Threads: CCC and DMC

Sumarrós with the notebook

I added some pearl buttons to the back and a small charm. I wanted the book to be simple and plain and I think I managed that. I also love that fabric, it is just so beautiful!

I have finished knitting my cape! I just sewed the buttons on today and wore it. It is just awesome! I will post pictures soon hopefully, I just need someone to come over and take pictures of me wearing it. I am sure that will happen soon. I have started another knitting project, a very simple scarf for a friend in Gryffindor colors. Oh, speaking of Harry Potter, have you seen the trailer for the new movie? I am oh so excited about it! Can’t wait!

Well. I am going to get comfy on my sofa and stitch a little. I haven’t been stitching at all really, and I need to finish up one thing that is a gift.

Oh, one more thing. Next Saturday we are getting a new member to our family.


We haven’t decided on a name yet, we need to get to know her a little first I think. I can’t wait, I really miss having a cat!

    Your bloggaversary gift was very special and the finishing of the journal fantastic. You have a very generous and giving spirit and I could see that Jennifer was most appreciative of your gift. I don’t know how you could have parted with that journal. Thanks for sharing all the photos.

    The notebook is great. When you do this finish again, please take some step by step fotos. I would also like to do this finish, but I do not know what adhesive I can use without destroying the work when it is some years old and dirty from the glue. (Bad English, I know, but I hope you understand)

    IF YOU WANT ( ! ), can you say two or three sentenses about the political feeling of the people in Iceland now in this days? We do not find and do not hear a lot about your situation now.
