Izzy & Consumed

Hi All,

Here is Princess Izzy this week

Have to love blocks of colour for fast progress lol

Consumed this week

Now her hair is coming in it is getting harder to only be working on her once a week but since my focus is on finishing Izzy it will have to do(oh the problems a stitcher faces)

I also used up a bit of my yarn stash with this lap sized crochet granny square rug with ate up six balls. With the kids on holidays for the past six weeks this was a great go to project with no concentration needed.

And in good news for me I haven't even replaced it...yet...
Cheers, Sharine

Wipocalypse #1

Hi All,

Back to the start and here is my starting point on my three for this year.(Ignore the crookedness of the photos bad photographer here)

Piper Tir N Org
Goal: Get onto the last row which means six page finishes.
Princess Izzy
Goal: To finish her! This is ten pages of stitching so with all three kids at school this year it just might be possible lol

Goal: To get to the end of this row which is about 2 and a half pages

In knitty news this week I'm happy to report that I have finished Charlottes and Isabellas mermaid blankets.

But that is not the end of the mermaid blankets as Bellas bst friend would love one as well as my niece so watch this space lol

Cheers, Sharine

Stitching away...

Hi All,

Coming from a boiling point hot day in Melbourne today is my weekly update.

Piper Tir N Org - page finish which means 15 done 13 to go!

 I have also started Charlottes mermaid blanket in the requested colours of pink and green.

It has been helped along with a road trip to see the big Koala which the kids loved. It is equal to about a four story building and there is a little zoo out the back(though the alpaca is a little grumpy)
It was a three hour trip each way but the kids handled it great(with the help of some ipads lol)
Cheers, Sharine

Knitting away...

Hi All,

I probably should have waited till I got better photos but I got a little excited at finishing one out of three mermaid blankets.
This one is Hannah's and I think she likes it?

It was done with two strands of yarn held together so knitted up fairly quicker. Maybe quicker if I didn't have to stop to knit up these dolly dresses for an order but I do enjoy a bit of variety.

And now I'm off to keep Charlotte happy and start her tail:)
Cheers, Sharine

Consumed, Izzy & Cake

Hi All,

I hope everyone had a great New Years. We had a quite one at home with the kids wanting to stay up. Hannah tried hard but when someone let some fireworks of at 11 pm we cheated and told her that was the New Year so we could get her off to bed.
The other three seen it in but then went straight to bed.
The fourth child is my beautiful niece who stayed for a week and lived in the pool with Bella.

It was also my birthday and my friend made this super awesome cake.

Stitching wise my New Year started like this

And Consumed

Cheers, Sharine

Bye bye 2015(Wipocalpse #12)

Hi All,

Here is my crafty wrap up for this year :)

As ever my cross stitch is my crafty favourite thing to do. This year was a novelty as Igot to stitch in the daylight hours while Hannah was at kinder as well as stitch after the kidlets bedtime(and a bit after mine as well)
Consumed at the start of the year looked like this
 And looks like this
My goal was to finish the first row - I got about 5 stitches past the centre arrow of the chart so not to bad since she only get to come out to play for a couple of hours a week. Next years goal - the end of the row.

Next up Piper Tir N Org at the start

 And now
And no he has not faded but I think a new camera might be needed lol. My goal was to finish six pages on him and I did! Next years goal - another six pages.

And my favourite wip Princess Izzy started like this

And will see out 2015 like this
My goal for her was to have her finished  but I'm not complaining. Next year - Finish her off.

That was my stitchy year but I also enjoy other crafts as well. I also have a stall
at our local market once a month so am always doing something for that as well as taking custom orders for various things( a cockatiel inspired baby beanie being my fave) so here is  photo round up.

My favourite thing about having a blog is all the awesome people I have 'met' and the friendships that have happened. One of the most stunning I have met is The Crafty Princess aka Alicia who sent me this awesome Christmas present,

Finally thankyou to everyone who has read, followed, commented and shared this year with me. I still enjoy blogging and seeing everyone elses work. It is all really inspiring to me. I hope you all have a happy,heathy and stitchy 2016.
Cheers, Sharine
