Floral Beauty Afghan update

Hi, I keep forgetting to thank my followers and can't believe I have 38, so thank you and if I reach 50 I will definitely be holding a giveaway. In other news here is my afghan which now has a splash of green.

I tried hard...

but one chart slipped into my possession at the latest HAED sale, Princess Izzy.

I watched this being done on Hannah's facebook page and Isabella was convinced this was her. So as much as I wanted to start Aussie Girl next this will most likely be my next start.

Happy Birthday Isabella!

Hi All,
After having zero time yesterday to wish my first born Happy Birthday here she is a big girl of 5.
She never fails to amaze us and is such a girly girl.( I don't know where she gets that from). So happy birthday baby and I hope you had a wonderful day.
In Faery Tales news I am almost at the end of this row and then on to the 4th and 5th rows which I plan on stitching at the same time as the above big girl is growing impatient to see the mermaid down the bottom.

Floral Beauty Afghan

Hi All, Here is a small update on Floral Beauty. At this rate I should have it finished before my baby graduates high school but I guess every stitch counts so here it is
In other stitchey news I got some new stash in the mail.
Two afghans and a piece of 20ct aida to maybe start aussie girl on
quick question do you use 1 strand or 2 on 20ct?
And also a disney cross stitch mag to add to my others
which look like this

Now I'm of to wrap up the pass-the-parcel for my girl's 5th birthday who this week asked when you stopped having birthdays. I replied with until your a very little old lady. Without blinking she came back with "like when your 30?"

Little Kingdom

My girls love watching Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom (here ) and I don't mind it either. Although my fave is Nanny Plum. In this week's copy of English Woman's Weekly (August 9th edition with Oprah on the front) there is a pattern for Gaston the Ladybug
Very cute and fairly easy to do.
And I had to share this photo of my baby who at 13 months decided to stop relying on her sisters to get toys for her and start crawling herself

Floral Beauty Afghan

I really love working on this and wish I could get it out more often. This afghan is for my mother in law who lives with us so I can only get it out once a fortnight when she is at work doing night duty. She is a great Mother in Law and a wonderful Nanna to not only my three girls but also to my sister's three children who have adopted her. I am still on the letter 'C'.
And what the front cover of the booklet looks like
It's very pretty and a easy stitch as well.
