Embroidery is not usually my thing (or at least, it *hasn't* been.. 
but who is to say it *won't* be anytime soon?) but the mention of 
Iceland intrigues me greatly. Does anyone know anything else about 
this particular source (where one could find a copy, especially in 
English, etc)? I'd be much oblidged if anyone could help...
