Halloween Fairy Update



This is what she looks like so far. She is stitching up really quickly. I am glad I swapped the material as I think she looks a lot better on this one than the one that came in the kit. At this rate, I think I am on track to finish her in plenty of time for Halloween!





This is Just Nans 'Boo'. I am thinking of making it into an ornament rather than the needle book as the instructions are a bit convoluted! Besides, I can always stitch it again.
I also started a cover kit from WOCS magazine. Its a cute Margaret Sherry Christmas card. I am stitching on that when I look after baby Ulla as it is small enough to try and keep it out of Ullas way lol.

Saturday, we drummed in Alexander Park, which was a fun day for families with lots going on. Colin and I were very fortunate to have our photos taken by a professional photographer. We found them on Facebook lol.

Group photo, the twins are standing one either side of Colin.

Last night we had a Section 5 Pirate crazy golf session all dressed up as pirates. We had a great time even though it was blowing an absolute gale. Made for more interesting playing lol.

  7. Your mojo has returned!!! Great progress and you really need someone to record video of your drumming and post it on Youtube! I have the Trick or Treat Fairy magazine. Wanda has it right now. If you plan on stitching it fairly soon, I can have her mail to you when done. I just want it back since there is a pillow in it that I plan on stitching...one day!
