Back in the good old days, you know, when I used to blog and stitch a lot more than I do these days, I had a competition on my blog. Commenter #4000 would get an award. And finally today, commenter #4000 got her award. Her name is Svala, and she lives here in Reykjavík so we could actually meet and I could give her her award in person! It took me a long time to finish since I lost my stitching mojo, and then planning the meeting also took a while, but it all worked out in the end, and earlier today, after work, Svala came to my house and got her award, and some coffee!
Thank you Svala for your visit, it was wonderful to finally meet you!
And here are pictures of the set of smalls that I made for her.
Thread: DMC 115
Linen: 32ct cream linen from my stash
Patterns: From my old Icelandic patternbooks, and a freebie from here
In other news, my boyfriend Ben visited my fair country for 12 days and left yesterday. I miss him terribly. This long distance stuff is hard! But worth it! We spent a week in a cabin in the countryside and did some driving around. Here you can see the pictures.
