Is it Christmas Yet?

Is the question most being asked around here at the moment. So to keep the girls at bay we made some Christmas decorations. Nothing to hard just some beads on a sparkly pipe cleaner:)
So easy it even kept Hannah happy
As for Faery Tales after another week

Faery Tales & The Afghan

Hi All, I didn't get to much done on Faery Tales this week.
It had to move over to make room for Floral Beauty this week as I had some extra chances to work on it. This is G for Gloxinia.
I also got this retired chart of The Black Knight by Heaven And Earth Designs from Shelly Lee who has a fabulous website Tilton Crafts with more beautiful charts.

Faery Tales

Hi All, Here it the weekly check in for Faery Tales. I love how if I think I haven't got much done I can just compare it to last week and see an improvement. Though after this week I'm lucky I got to touch it.
 Keith was the last one to be struck down yesterday and being a male he of course had it worse then anyone;) Fingers crossed it has left everyone's system.

Izzy & Santa

Hi All, Here they are. First up Izzy
And Snowmobile Santa
Thankyou all for the well wishes for the girls. Poor Hannah got it twice before very lovingly passing it on to Mummy. Thankfully my DH was able to come home from work for a couple of hours to help me out. No sick days for Mums.

Hi All,  Not a good weekend this one. We lost one of our little dogs Buffy.
She was 12 and a half and I had had her since she was 10 weeks old. She was very healthy but unfortunately got herself into trouble on Sunday afternoon and I found her in her kennel already gone. The girls have handled it very well. We buried her and told them the angels would come and take her where Freddie(our dog we lost last year) would be waiting for her. Charlotte asked couldn't they just make her better and bring her back on Christmas Eve. Cue the tears. This weekend we will go the local market and buy her a tree to mark where she is buried. So take it easy Buffy Boo and tell Freddie we said hi.
This our the last of the three musketeers Jack who just turned 11 and I have had since birth. So far he seems to be taking it ok.
Onto stitching I finished page 2 on Princess Izzy and made a small start on page 3
Santa got added to
And Floral Beauty got the F for Fushia finished
Next up is G for gloxinia.
Hope everyone one has a great week,Sharine

5 to go!

Hi All, Another page bit the dust last night which leaves 5 to go.
Ever so slowly it is getting there and I can't wait to start something new. Although it doesn't look like it, it does measure straight when flattened out properly.
