Ice Dying

Hi all,

So my oldest daughter checks out everyones blogs and always comments on the beautiful coloured fabric everyone uses (that is except for her mum who tries to explain to her that it would be a bit of a waste as it would end up covered- that is not an acceptable excuse).

I do have a few pieces of beautiful hand dyes from Tammy at colour cascade fabrics but Bella found a tutorial on YouTube and wanted to try doing it herself.

And here are the results which have been safely stashed in her craft drawer out of my reach.

Cheers, Sharine

Wipocalpse #10

Hi All,

So glad to be back in time for this months Wipocalpse!

Here is Princess Izzy way back in August

And now onto the next row
Piper Tir N Org last time around

And now

 And Consumed last time

And now

And the question of the month
Are there any fibers or materials used in stitching that you’re nervous to try?

I would really love to stitch on some higher counts but to be honest stitching on 25ct does my head in sometimes so maybe it's best to stick with my favourite - 20ct aida lol.
Cheers, Sharine

Knitting Finishes

Hi All,

No posts for weeks and now I'm back twice this one lol. One of the benefits of no laptop is more crafting time. This week I had this two finishes.

The first one is a toddler size cardi for my market stall.

If you just tilt your head to the right it will all make sense ;)

And a finish my baby girls (just don't tell her I said baby) baby doll Isla.

Now the deal when I knit for Hannah is she chooses the yarn, I knit the project and then she chooses the buttons. She has her own little stash of buttons which she adds to regularly when we visit Spotlight or any craft shop together. Better yet if she just finds one laying around.

Today I'm linking this post with And Sew We Craft a great site with lost of inspiring ideas.

Cheers, Sharine

Hi All,

Here I am back with a proper post at last. I think I have worked out this new laptop(enough to do a blog post anyway lol).

So here is my stitching since I have been away.
Princess Izzy - I finished the 3rd row and started the 4th. Since I'm planning on stitching the 5th and 6th row together this is the second last row!

Piper Tir N Org- Is also soooo close to a row finish. I have stitched more on this then te photo shows but since his rotation doesn't finish till tonight I am holding off taking another photo.

Consumed- Had a page finish and am on page 3 which is the middle of the row. I'm looking forward to working on this one a bit more when either Izzy or Piper are finished.

Knitting- I've had a few knitting finishes  but here a couple of them.
I had one mum request 2 headbands for her adorable baby girl and from that I ended up knitting 12 more for various people:)

And a pair of blue bootees to keep it equal lol
I also done a little stash building. For some reason I can't share pictures f the stash I brought from a fantastic new shop called Charting Creations I am now the proud owner of three of Nikki's charts. They are Faerie Steed , Steampunk Wonder Woman and Marygill The Sealady.

And as I am being booted of the laptop I will say goodbye and I will be back soon.
Cheers, Sharine

Still here

Hi All,
Just a quick post to say I'm still here! My laptop died a sudden death a few months ago so when I work this one out it will be back to regular programming.
Cheers, Sharine
