I'm Aliiiiiiive!

And I have actual stitching to show this time!!! Boyfriend just left for Mexico today, which means that, although he will be missed, I will get some stitching in. Worked my butt off tonight to finish another page of Mario, but success was had!

He's progressing along nicely.

In other news, Boyfriend and I have purchased tickets to Iceland in August! I'm super excited. I know it's not exactly a person's first thought as to vacation spots but it's beautiful and has lots of awesome geological features. We're going to rent a car and drive around the Ring Road. If anyone has been and has any suggestions, please let me know!

Also, I have some photos from the shoot, but I'm totally embarrassed so I'll wait to see the whole batch and then decide whether or not to post some.

Hope to update you guys on College come Sunday. Until then, happy stitching!

Yay congrats Ewa, how awesome is a page finish. He's looking great and he must be fun to work on. Hope you don't miss your bf too much but you're right, such a good time to spend on yourself and also to get some stitching in!
Take care

Oh, Mario looks fantastic!

A trip to Iceland, how exciting :) I hope to go there one day, too. That's a country I just have to visit :)
I'm going to Scandinavia in Summer, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland. That will be great :)

Mario's looking great!
Iceland sounds promising. I'm suffering from overheat here, I sure will appreciate a trip to Iceland too ;)

Alicia, page finishes are such a mixed bag for me. I get so excited that I FINISHED A PAGE!!! and then I realize that I have 30 more to go...

Scandinavia sounds wonderful! I've only been to the airport in Finland, but flying overheard was beautiful.

I'm really excited about Iceland. I don't like hot weather and it's been very hot here lately. And it only promises to get hotter! I can't wait to have a high of 16C :)

I can't wait to watch the progress on this one! I saw the pattern for this and was so curious how it would stitch up. It looks awesome so far.
