Ladybugs and Bumblebees – FINISHED!

It didn’t take me long to finish this at all! I didn’t have that much left to stitch on it. I did most of it last night, and then I added the two little bumblebees when I got home from work today and my little Karítas helped me iron it (she got to spray it with water). I love love love it!

I also got another birthday gift in the mail today. This one is from my friend Brenda. Thanks Brenda! I hope you and yours are safe from Gustav. She and her family fled New Orleans and I just got word through a stitching friends that they are getting some wind and rain, but nothing serious. I hope it stays that way for them and everyone who is getting affected! Stay safe!

I took my Neighborhood to the framers today. I found a really beautiful rough wood frame for it. Just like I had imagined. I will get it back in about 2 weeks, maybe sooner. I will off course be posting pictures once I get it back! Now I am going to start stitching on an exchange with a Halloween theme. I have always wanted to do some Halloween stitching, but since it is not celebrated here in Iceland I don’t get much of a chance to do so. So I signed up for an exchange and will get a fall themed stitched item in return 🙂 Great deal if you ask me. I have decided on what to stitch and how to finish it. Now just to find the perfect fabric to go with the design!
