Goodbye 2011

Hi All, So not only are we farewelling 2011 but I also turned 30 today so time to start growing up I guess.(not really). I thought I would see what I had done this year so here we go. When I started this blog back in April
this is what Faery Tales looked like
And for the end of this year
I started Princess Izzy
and got it to here
I don't have a full photo of Floral Beauty so will take one on Monday night.
My only finishes were the disney ones I done for my girls.

They are all framed up and hanging on their walls now.Personally I had a fairly good year. The only downer was when one of liitle dogs died in July. He was 12 years old. I had had him since he was 6 weeks old and still miss my Freddie boy.
I hope you all have a great new year,Sharine

My Christmas

Hi All, I hope everyone one had a wonderful Christmas. The girls had a wonderful day and it;s now official Barbie has taken over our house.

And outside on their new scooters( they also got new helmets to go with their scooters) and ride-on pony

We spent Christmas at home with my Dad and Keith's parents. After eating way to much at lunch, tea was just leftovers and salad with everyone helping themselves as they felt like it.

Curly Wurlys for the antlers,two sultana's for the eyes,a marshmallow cut if half for his face and a jaffa for his nose.I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and thanks for reading my blog.

2012 WIPocalypse List

Hi All, First for a quick update. First up Princess Izzy.
And the afghan. My search for blanc dmc continues and I think I may just get it of ebay and be done with it.

And for my WIPocalpse list. 
Faery Tales- I hope to finish next year. I have 13 pages left but only 6 of those are full pages with the rest being half pages so fingers crossed.
Princess Izzy- Probably will not be a finish but I will continue on her.
Floral Beauty-  Will continue to work on that slowly.
I also want to do some Christmas ornaments but am undecided what pattern just yet.

I finally finished my Christmas shopping on the weekend and know have toys stashed everywhere around the house away from the girls. My poor sister on the other hand had her Christmas lay-by lost and had to start over again. 
Hope you all have a great week leading up to the big day, Sharine

Kinder Graduation

Hi All, It doesn't seem like that  long ago when I dropped my first born of at kinder and on Wednesday night she graduated.
She is now set to go to school and already counting down the days. On the other hand I could definitely wait a little longer.
For her graduation/concert night we had to bring a plate to share so I made some teddy bear sleighs that the kids loved.
Super easy. Just melt some chocolate to join the mini candy canes to the bottom of the milky ways and then dip the bottom of the teddy in the chocolate and gently press their legs into the milky way. I put coconut on the plate for snow. Depending on the candy canes you get you might have to trim them back a bit.
And for Faery Tales I finished another page so now I'm down to 13 pages.

Bits and Pieces...

Hi All,
Here is Princess Izzy after another night.
And we finally got our Christmas tree up complete with playpen(and assorted mess around it) to stop little fingers.

We have had a playpen around our tree for the last 5 years to stop the little people but unfortunately it doesn't keep our cat Waffle out, who has made it her hobbie to take the decorations of to play with.
And here are some more decorations made by Bella for the tree.

Moving along...

to Princess Izzy. It is now a green and black blob. Bella asked me last night if it would be finished in time for Christmas.
And on to the daffodil. The daffodil part would be finished if I could find some white dmc. Three different stores and none to be found.I still have to add the 'D' and backstitch.

Cheers from a beautiful day in Australia,Sharine

My ladies had something against Faery Tales this week as on the nights I sat down to work on it they took it in turns to wake up. Ahhh the joys of children!
