Now on to stitching. I have been working on a project suggested by Becky over at the Let’s Stitch blog. She suggested we dig out our longest standing UFO or WIP and work on it this week. I am making great progress on my project. The project I decided to work on was Mini Cottages by Michael Powell. I am doing all four of them on the same piece of fabric and have finished the first three and started the last one. I took a picture on Sunday before I sat down with it and will take another one soon to show my progress. I am quite hopefull that I will get it done this week. It is a nice break from my stocking since the stocking has a lot of details and the Mini Cottages are much more simple. When I am finished with the Cottages I will work on my stocking more.

Tagged, foot, WIP update.

Thanks everyone for the good and healing thoughts about my foot. It is getting a little better, slowly but surely. I really wish I could just sit down and stitch until it felt better, but as it is, I have to work full time and then take care of a house and my two daughters when my workday is over. That’s life 🙂 I have been taking it easy with the chores (it is not like they are going anywhere anyway!) and doing as little as possible around the house, but that is just the way it has to be for now. My daughters are really understanding though, and are bringing me whatever I ask them and being very careful around my foot. The swelling has gone down quite a bit, but my foot is quite colorful these days. It is bruised all the way through, that is, I can see a bruise under my foot also, and everywhere between my toes etc. It is really weird! I keep my foot wrapped during the day, so it is a little wrinkled 🙂

Foot day 4

Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I started Ladybugs & Bumblebees by CCN and here is a pic. The colors are off, but I couldn’t be bothered to fix it at the moment. Next picture will be better, I promise 🙂

Ladybugs & Bumblebees

And Miss Mary Mack got a little attention last night. I miscounted and had to frog a whole bunch. Man do I hate frogging when I am stitching one over one!

And finally, I got tagged by Monique!

Where I was 10 years ago:
10 years ago I wasn’t at a very good place I must say. I was 20 and a bit confused about my life and what I wanted from it. I did a lot of partying and stupid things. I got pregnant with my older daughter and thankfully I wised up and turned my life around.

Five things on my to-do list for today: Work, dinner, get kids to bed, fold laundry, stitch.

Snack foods I like:
Doritos with hot dip. Some nuts. Fruits and veggies. Popcorn.

If I were a billionaire, I’d: Oh I don’t know. I would try to do as much good as possible with the money. Travel a lot too. I would like to visit all of my blogging friends. Or better yet, invite you all to come over for a visit 🙂

Places I’ve lived: Here, that’s it 🙂 I have lived in Hafnarfjörður, Garðabær and Reykjavík, but that is basically saying that you have lived in the separate ends of one city. And a tiny city at that.

People I want to know more about:
Anyone who would like to answer this 🙂

Well. I better get dinner started. I am just going to have some easy snacks, bread, fruits and yogurt. Minimal cooking for me!

Book meme

I was tagged by Sonja

1: Hardcover or paperback, and why?
Both. Some are just meant to be hardcovers. But I have a lot more of paperbacks because they are cheaper and more convenient.

2: If I were to own a book shop, I would call it…
Linda’s Stitching and Reading Place. It would be a mix between a book shop and a stitching shop with a big sitting area for reading and/or stitching.

3: My favourite quote from a book (mention the title)
I don’t remember any quotes.

4: The author (alive or deceased) I would love to have lunch with would be…
Haruki Murakami

5:If I was going to a deserted island and could bring only one book, except for the SAS survival guide, it would be…
Only one? Hmmmm. Probably Lord Of The Rings, all the stories in one big book.

6: I would love someone to invent a bookish gadget that…
Would allow me to read and stitch at the same time. I don’t like audio books unless I have read the book first. Then I can listen to it, otherweise I keep getting side tracked.

7: The smell of an old book reminds me of…
My grandfather.

8: If I could be the lead character in a book (mention the title) it would be…
Snæfríður Íslandssól – Íslandsklukkan.

9: The most overestimated book of all times is…
The DaVinci Code probably. I haven’t read it myself, and have no will to do so.

10: I hate it when a book…
Doesn’t live upto my expectations. I also do not like to finish good books and I often cry at the end of a book, even if the end is a happy one.

 I am going to tag Judy, Ágústa, Hafrún and Lili.

The weirdness that is me.

I got tagged by Hannah to do the 6 Weird Things about Me.

The rules: Each player of this game starts with the “6 weird things about you.” People who get tagged need to write in their blog of 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names.

1) I can not listen to the radio. I get so horribly cranky if I can’t pick my music myself and have to listen to loud DJ’s that all seem to yell at the microphone.

2) I talk to myself a lot.

3) I hate buying shoes. I just hate shopping in general. Except for stash, books and music.

4) I hate being pregnant, but I love giving birth.

5) I am insanely organised when it comes to some things, but terribly disorganised when it comes to other things. I always know where everything is though.

6) One of my favorite things to do is to go out walking in the rain. When it is raining straight down that is. I don’t like walking in the rain when it is very windy outside also. But walking in the rain when it is pouring straight down and getting soaked to the bone… I love that!

I tagg the following people:
Rósa Tom
Rósa Bjarna
Ágústa (maybe this will get her to update hehe)
Anne S.
And whoever that wants to do this :o)

I started another biscornu last night, for my friend Colleen in NY. She sent me white Lugana in 28ct and one of the new variations colors from DMC. It is looking great so far and I can’t wait to stitch some more on it when I get home today. I was worked for almost 11 hours yesterday and was just exhausted when I got home. My mom came over and we watched Gray’s Anatomy (I love that show) and when she left I just managed to start the stitching and then I just crashed. Hopefully this evening will be a better stitching night for me :o)
