One more finish!

Hi All, I got my biker Santa ornament finished. And just in time as i got my new stoney creek magazine this week with the next two ornaments in the series. A train and a pick-up truck. Very cute.
So here is the biker Santa.
And a small start on the train Santa.
And for a blast of green Princess Izzy.
Thankfully no one else got Charlotte's tummy bug. Even so we still had a quite weekend. Bella has a school sports day this week but is much more excited about the bus trip to get to the oval where they are meeting up with other schools. Hope everyone has a great week.

Faery Tales

Hi All,  Here is Faery Tales.
Still growing and now I have some blackbirds as well.
Charlotte got a little tummy bug last night which has resulted in our house having washing everywhere. And not to mention the drying that comes along with it. Fingers crossed Bella and Hannah don't end up with it as well.Oh well back to it... at least until the maid turns wait that's me...

Finally some finishes!

Hi All, I wish it was finishes of the cross stitch type but it's of the knitting type. Two pompom blankets. One for my nephew ad one for a friends baby.
And two Barbie dresses same everything as to avoid any 'that's mine!' fights.
And with one happy customer(i so need a new camera)the poor middle child Charlotte.
And for the cross stitching part here is Princess Izzy- I am actually closing in on this page.
And one more night of backstitching and I should have another finish on Santa.
I just got my new Stoney Creek magazine and the next two ornaments in this series are Santa in a train and Santa in a pick up truck. Both very cute.

TUSAL #4 and other stuff

Hi All, First up here is the TUSAL for this month. And another awful photo.
And now for a better effort Faery Tales.
And I think I showed great restraint in heaven and earth designs latest sale (an incredible 50% off) and brought these two
Faces Of Faery 185
Faces of Faery 187
I seem to have gone a little dragon crazy and Charlotte has fallen in love with them. She keeps telling me the top one is her and that the little dragon comes only to her at night time. Actually that would explain a lot;-)
And this was all written on my laptop so Keith can have his computer back.

Izzy and Santa

Hi All, Still no computer so I 'm back on DH's. First up Princess Izzy.
And I started the backstitch on Santa
 Bella is back at school today and couldn't wait to go. It's a welcome relief from when she first started when she didn't want to go. So know I'm off to sort through their clothes starting with Hannah's. One of the benefits of all girls is the hand me downs. At least until their old enough to say 'I don't think so Mum!'

Faery Tales

Hi All, Here is Faery Tales for another week.
Just a quick post as my laptop is away getting fixed and I had to pry my DH's computer away from him. He is hyperventilating at me using it.
Cheers, Sharine

A prize and some Stash

Hi All, I just had to share what Ewa sent to me as my prize for winning her giveaway is.

The stitching is beautiful (hopefully Ewa has a better photo then what I do of it silly camera) and now I will have to think of something clever to make with it. The are far less chocolates now then when I opened it after Keith and the girls found them.So thankyou Ewa. It was great to come home to.
And now for stash update heaven and earth designs are having a 30% of sale. I have avoided the last couple of sales but made up for it with this one.
Frenchie Friends Michelle and JoJo
QS Black Rose Immortal
QS Clara
And The Black(which uses 40 black skeins!)
More then enough to keep me busy(cause 3 kids just don't cut it lol).
I will be back tomorrow with Faery Tales and TUSAL,Sharine

Izzy, Santa And an Award

Hi All, Here is Izzy. I switched out the winter white for a sparkly B5200. I didn't think I would need it until I reached the unicorn but where the blues and purples are there is a thin stripe of it.
And my motorbike santa
And shebafudge  and  Hely's Stitching gave me one more Liebster Award.Thanks so much. So here is the info and the rules

Some background: Liebster is a German word, meaning favourite, dearest or beloved and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers, who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition. The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:
  1.  Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster to.  
  2.  Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them. 
  3.  Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites.  Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.
  4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

So five more of my faves are
1-Bouncing Bellies & Flashing Fingers
2- Faerie
3-obsessive crossstitcher
4-BAP Attack
5-Stitchings Of An Army Wife
And as for five more things about me I haven't really got a clue on what to add (I got to 2 and stared at the computer screen for 10 minutes) so I will leave it there.
