Last page!

Hi All,

On to the home stretch for sure now as I started the page on Faery Tales.
A couple of more weeks and major happy dancing should be on the cards lol:)

And here is a picture of the fabric I spoke of last post or two ago.
The camera hasn't picked up the colours right but here it is.
It very pink/purpley and very girly. Now to just find a pattern to suit. It came from colour cascade fabrics who have lots of great colours available.
Hope everyone has a happy and safe Easter.

Izzy & Santa

Hi All,

As the title above suggests here are Izzy and Santa.(One day I will be one of those people who can think of clever titles lol).

Izzy on 20ct aida 2 over 1

And Up On The Rooftop ornament on 25ct laguna 1 over 1

And although I have been slowly decreasing my pattern stash my fabric stash is now on the rise thanks to colour cascade fabrics . They have some great hand dyed fabric available.I just got my first piece of it called Barbie Girl(what else) and it's so pretty.

Izzy & Santa

Princess Izzy and I'm almost at the end of this page.

Up On The Rooftop ornament is still growing slowly.

I also added to my horse chart stash by buying this and it may replace little miss deelish as one of my new starts.

A sort of new start

Hi All,

I started H for Hyacinth this week which is sort of a new start on an ongoing project.

And I got a most of the black finished on this page of Faery Tales.Still looking wonky as always lol.

Also finished these, what I thought were pant and jumper sets for my girls only to have them correct me by saying that what I had made are pajamas .
I get most of my patterns off here all for free. The only thing I find is if I knit with there recommended  needle size the girls have trouble getting the clothes on and off so usually I go up a couple of needle sizes( I think they recommend 2mm and I knit with 3.25mm) and add a button on the back so they open instead of seeming them straight up.

And after having a poke around Etsy I also brought two patterns of Vintage Knitnak I got the Robin Hood and Little Bo Peep outfits.

Hope everyone has a great weekend, Sharine

Two page finishes!

Hi All,

Two pages to go and Faery Tales will be done!
Thanks to my camera is looks wonky as but in real life measures up right. I'm thinking 6 more weeks and it will be all over(and I can make some new starts).

For my other page finish, thanks to my lovely hubby taking the kids out for a hour I finished the backstitching on 'G'
Which also means the top row is finished(excuse the messy background:)
On to H for Hyacinth I think.

Santa & Izzy

Hi All,

I just got home from kinder duty with Charlotte and wow. I take my hat of to all teachers but most of all kinder teachers today. 25 4 year olds for six hours. The stuff you can learn from a little one is amazing lol.
Here is my effort on Izzy this week
The blue and purple background make for a nice break from the green.
And Santa is looking something like this
Still can't see any detail coming through yet but I'm sure there will be soon.

And if anyone received a strange email of me last week I'm sorry. I asked my DH to send of the kinder financial report to the kinder committee and instead it went to everyone on my contact list.

Hope everyone has a great week, Sharine
