2 time the finishes

Hi All,

I didn't succeed with Izzy last week but I did with Piper finishing the page. So that makes it 5 down 23 to go.

And my second finish came in the way of this baby blanket. It is for Bellas teacher who is due with her first baby in a few months. The pattern is Sirdar 1252 and I used Ice Yarn.

It was a pretty quick knit and I can now say I have mastered the yarn over.
Cheers, Sharine

WIPocalypse #4

Hi All,

Here we go again:)

Piper Tir N Org last time

Piper Tir N Org now

Princess Izzy last time
 This time
Penguin ornament last time
And finished

So I started Rudolph

Sadly no Floral Beauty this month.

This months topic is how do you keep your stash organized?
Since most of my stash are HAED charts they are all stored on a usb stick and backed up on dropbox.
My other charts are in one underbed storage container. Since I have had a bit of culling of my magazines( I have been buying them for five years and think the Christmas ornaments are the first thing I have stitched out of them) they are all stored in a couple of magazine holders.
My threads live in 4 cotton storage boxes that I set up around me to stitch every night. I don't 'kit out' every project and just buy the threads as I need them so all my projects share the same threads.
Thanks to DH I am lucky enough to have the full set of the DMC range.
Cheers, Sharine

Izzy & Rudolph

Hi All,

Almost had a page finish this week on Izzy this week.
I got excited this week because that little patch of white down the bottom is the unicorn!

And Rudolph got his red nose this week.

Piper & Penguin

Hi All,

Here is how I spent my stitchy week. First on the Piper
Almost done with this page but there is a lot of confetti to work through. It's all in the details lol.

And penguin should be finished this week as there is only a bit of snow to stitch and a little backstitch.
Cheers, Sharine

Knitty finish:)

Hi All,

I finally added the buttons to finish this baby cardi off. I don't know what it is with adding the finishing touches to something but I always find myself putting it off for something else lol.

And a close up of the cute flower buttons.

The yarn is Patons Fair Isle and the pattern is my old favourite Kina but with long sleeves this time.

Something I never put off is working on Izzy and here is how she is looking this week. Still jealous of her hair;)

Cheers, Sharine
