Merry Christmas!

Hi All,

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. The girls done very well out of Santa with a new bike for Hannah
and a pool for everyone. Even though it wasn't that warm Bella and Charlotte braved it and went in.

Piper Tir N Org came out this week and in good timing I am up to stitching big blocks of sky so not much thinking was required thank goodness.

Hi All,

Up On The Rooftop is done and dusted!

He was stitched on 25ct laguana 1 over 1. I don't think I will finish him as an ornament but will get it framed in the new year instead.

So that makes two HAED finishes in the same year. Something not likely to be repeated for a long time.(By me anyway)!

A page finish:)

Hi All,

I finished page 3 on Piper and made a start on 4.

The man still won't be making an appearance until page 5 but as page 4 as nothing but blue skies it should stitch up pretty fast.

But in more exciting news we now have a kinder graduate on our hands. Charlotte graduated last night. We are all so proud with far she has come this year. She is definitely her own person and one of  the most strong willed girls you will find.

So now I will have two school girls in the new year leaving Hannah and I up to our own devices.

Will I make it???

Hi All,

Here is Santa after his latest visit. I'm hoping, hoping, hoping to have him finished by next weekend.

And Floral Beauty came out of hiding as well.

Here is our Santa photo for this year. Only Miss Bella (or cupcake as she prefers to be known as at the moment) was up for a visit to Santa with Hannah and Charlotte keeping a firm(death) grip on my legs.

One year I'm sure I will get the three of them and until then I will continue to dream about it.(sorry about the energizer add)

One page closer!

Hi All,

Finished another page this week and started on page 8. This page will be mainly hair but does include the start of her face.

And I made some hair ties using a fabric yoyo maker for various little princesses in my life:)

Santa continues...

Hi All,

Here he is. Not so much done this week thanks to a 24 hour thing on the weekend. Thankfully the kids seemed to miss out on it.

And for the girls Christmas stockings I made these bottlecap bracelets.
Two Monster High and one Peppa Pig.

Izzy & Some Knitting

Hi All,

Here is my fave wip at the moment Princess Izzy. I should have a page finish by next week.

I started this blanket a little while ago and it has been living in the car for the past few months as a time killer while I'm waiting for school to finish, kinder to finish, insert child related activity here...
It is super simple, just straight knitting so it is perfect just to pick up and go for it.

And although it looks like the top is different from the bottom there is really not that much difference in real life.  Not that it matters as it's already being fought over between the youngest and the oldest lol.

Princess Izzy & New stash

Hi All,

Here is Izzy after this week. The black down the bottom is the start of her hair so soon she will have a face.

And to celebrate how I have been so fab at avoiding HAED's last few sales I brought two at this one:)
Both Hannah Lynn's QS Scarecrow and Home Sweet Home Dorothy

I seen on Hannah's facebook page she has just finished tinman/girl so hopefully that will be charted soon as well.
Cheers, Sharine
