Happy Birthday Bella!

Hi All, First for the stitchy bit.
Golf Cart Santa- Almost done with stitching part and then on to the backstitch.
Princess Izzy- I got a break from the green to add 3 pink stitches which is in the top part of her tiara
And for the most important part my oldest Miss Bella turned six on Saturday and got her DS

And if you ever want a challenge try to get six kids aged 6,6,4,3,2 and 1 to sit still for a photo. One day my sister and I will have this shot if it kills us

From left to right nephews Justin and Tyson my daughters Charlotte(refer to previous post to see her pretty face), Isabella, Hannah and my niece Kimberley.
She had a great day with her friends(all 20 of them) and the house will also live to see another day:)

Faery Tales

Hi All, Just a quick one today. Here is Faery Tales going along smoothly.
Although she is not the birthday girl I had to share this photo of Charlotte doing her fave thing at the moment.
We brought her a sticker mosiac a couple of weeks ago and she loves them. Also it's so hard to get a photo of her smiling that when I do sneak one in it's worth a share.
In cake news it has been decided that a princess cake is the way to go. I guess the spider cake idea made Bella's mind up for her(thanks Linda!)

Party Week!

Hi All, First for some stitching.
Princess Izzy- the forest continues to grow
And Santa got his golf club
This week will be all about getting ready for Bella's birthday party. I can't quite believe she is turning 6. This year she is getting a Nintendo DS for her birthday as well as plenty more I'm sure. The birthday cake has yet to be decided because she keeps changing her mind. We started of with My Little Pony, changed to Snow White, switched to a castle cake and am now resting on an 'I' cake(so everyone at the party knows it's her birthday). No doubt she will change her mind 5 more times before Saturday.

TUSAL #8(yes it's that time again!)

Hi All, Here is my jar faithfully filling up with all the colors in the rainbow.
And Faery Tales with a page finish. So 7 more to go!
In other news Bella lost her second tooth this week just in time for her dance photos this weekend. At least they were her bottom ones and not the top ones. Thankfully she didn't swallow this one and spat it out just as we were sitting down for dinner. The tooth fairy rewarded her effort with $4.
Hope everyone has an awesome weekend,Sharine

Not more stash!

Hi All,  First for some stitchy updates.
Princess Izzy
And golf cart Santa
And when HAED extended their sale some more stash buying went on. Which will be all for the year as I really need to start buying some fabric to start stitching them up:)
Snow White Lynn-Hannah Lynn
And QS Sunkissed- Hannah Lynn(another one of those 6 page quick charts)

Another first!

Hi All, Bella lost her first tooth this week.
The tooth fairy had her work cut out for her when Bella swallowed it but wouldn't you know it the tooth fairy has special powers for situations like this and Bella ended up with $3 under her pillow in the morning.
In other news I almost had a page finish this week with Faery Tales.
And two more charts were added to the ever growing stash.
Little Miss Deelish & Sweet Treats Trixie-Hannah Lynn
I was planning on stitching Alicia Aliana for Charlotte but she wanted a unicorn like Bella has in hers so Miss Deelish it is.
QS Toucan Falls- Hannah Lynn
Is there something wrong when you buy a new chart, see that it has 6 pages and think cool a small pattern?
Cheers, Sharine

A new start

Hi All, My new issue of Stoney Creek magazine finally turned up and I got to start the next santa. I got Bella to choose between the golf cart and aeroplane and she went with the golf cart because it has purple in it:)
Princess Izzy has a bit more green. I can't wait to get to the next row so I can stitch her instead of background but oh well.
And Floral Beauty has some more pretty pinks.

And I just got an email that HAED is having a 50% of sale. I will stay away, I will stay away...

Faery Tales

Hi All, Here it is. Almost another page down.
And some photos of my happy little Vegemites decorating biscuits.
 One for Hannah, one for the biscuit.
 Bella taking the art of biscuit decorating seriously.
 Group shot.
 Charlotte cutting out the middle man and using the icing directly.
With the blue,red and green icing, mini marshmallows, sprinkles and chocolate drops they were just a little sweet but a good way to spend a rainy afternoon.
