Hi All, With a huge thanks to Debbie ( click here ) I won a $10 gift certificate to 123 Stitch. Hopefully soon they will get Tropical Christmas by Stoney Creek in stock  so it will go to that.
And my mermaid finally made her appearance on Faery Tales.
And all over

Hope you all have a great weekend and it must be said GO COLLINGWOOD!

A Bit of This And A Bit of That...

Hi All, First of I had to share this chart with you
And now you know where all those UFO's have disappeared to. It is available here .
So now for a Friday freebie I found this cute little guy in time to start for Christmas  here .
As for Faery Tales here it is in all it's glory
The green stitches down the bottom are the beginning of the mermaid so hopefully you will be able to see her a lot more clearer next week.

New Stash...

Hi All, Don't you love it when there new stash waiting for you in your mailbox instead of bills? While searching for something else I came across these on Ebay and for the grand total of $7.99 they were mine.
Holiday Hounds by Dimensions
and a couple of close up's of the cuties

This actually a needlepoint kit but I will cross stitch it instead. I'm still deciding on my favorite and there is a Christmas stocking to match but the only one I can find is around $75 on Ebay so that will have to wait a little while longer!

Hi All, I thought I would start posting links to freebies on the net... so first of the rank is the dmc club . After registering to join there are a bunch of free charts to download from animals and samplers to teddy bears and Christmas designs you should be able to find something you love.
And so onto my update on Faery Tales which is starting to get hard to hold. I am still on page 25 and just starting to get back in the picture
Have a great weekend,Sharine

Evening wear for Barbie

Hi All, Just a couple more Barbie dresses knitted with horrible wool. It's got metallic threads woven through a black mohair like 3ply wool that just fluffed up into balls as I was knitting it. But when  Isabella found it in my Nan's old stash that I inherited after she passed she decided that it was just right for Barbie and of course with two little girls into Barbie one dress wasn't going to be enough so here they are in all there glory
as for the remaining wool Bella has very generously promised her cousin Kim and her  best friend at kinder Emma their very own so back to the needles.

Hi All,Last night while I was checking out everyone's updates I saw this on Bec's blog It's for the 2012 Wipocalypse and you can find out more by clicking here to go to Measi's Musings.It sounds like fun.
I am also going to borrow/steal an idea from ambitious stitches blog and do an august look back so here is Faery Tales at the start of august
and at the end of august it looked like this
and floral beauty looked like this
and finished august by looking like this
so some progress has been made however unlike Lauren there is no way I am brave enough to show the backs!
