Top 5 Tuesdays - Quick stitches

I knew instantly which chart I would include after seeing this week's theme so let's get on

1. Welcome Baby - this is my go to chart for new additions to families. I can stitch this within 24 hours.

2. Good things - I have already stitched this once and am nearly halfway through another but you may remember it's sitting in the naughty corner for now.
3. Happy Panda Set

Top 5 - Water related charts

This was a tough one but let's give it a go anyway :)

1. Under the Sea SAL
I'm sorry, I don't have a picture for this one. It's a mystery SAL that is only 2 months in and the designer hasn't uploaded a recent image to the website.
2. Puddles of Love

3. Paradise Island

4. The Dolphins Domain

5. Tide View
I've discovered as I hunt for charts that I really like a large of amount of dimensions kits. If I ever win the lottery, I know what I'll be buying cross stitch wise :P

Top 5 - Food Related Charts

Hello everyone, we're back again. I've really had to think for this week's charts, most food related designs I come across are in magazines and mine are neatly packed away :P

1. Baking Mouse

2. Mediterranean Flavours

3. Ice Cream Sundae Cup

4. Fine Wine - this might be a bit of a shoe horn but he's obviously hoping to wine and dine someone!

5. Mini Cake Basket

Top 5 Tuesdays - Animal Theme Charts

I'm sorry this is late! I love animal charts and there's just too many great ones out there so picking 5 will be difficult. I'll try and not repeat charts from other lists since they've had their moment of glory.

1. The Continent Series - there's 5 in this series so I'll just share an image of one. I have 2 of these, Australia, China and the US are missing.

2. Watercolour Octopus Once I've got a few things cleared from my stash and I'll be adding this guy and his turtle friend to it.

3. Mumma's Boy - unfortunately it looks like this artist has been retired so the link just takes you to the site I bought it from. I started this last year but have only done about 20 stitches of beige on beige so nothing exciting to show.

4. Polar Bear and Cub

5. Woodland Animals

Top 5 Tuesdays - Top 5 BAP's you would love to stitch

I'll start with a disclaimer - I consider any full coverage piece that would take years to do as a BAP even though I know some people fly through them, not naming anyone in particular *cough* Keebles World *cough*

1. Gamer Nouveau - I am in fact stitching this one, I'm just hoping I finish it! I haven't been able to give it much love recently.

2. LOTR Map - this chart has now been retired but I managed to get my hands on it before it disappeared.

3. French Coat of Arms - the main thing putting me off this one is that it's large and designed for 40ct! I'd give the 40ct a go if I can find some.

4. A Beautiful Light - I'd like to see the Northern Lights one day.

5. Awaken - this is another piece that I think would be a great reminder of my trip to South Africa.

There hasn't been much crafting going on as I'm not feeling to well but any crafting that has been done is secret :/

Top 5 Tuesdays - The last 5 films you watched

1. Rogue One - I've got to say overall this film is OK. It's biggest downside? The first half. It's slow going as it's setting the "scene" for the second half which is much more fast paced and action packed.

2. Tower Heist - I watched this for the first time in December and I found it funny, I don't think I've come across a Ben Stiller comedy that I haven't laughed at.

3. X-Men

There is a theme to my last few and that is due to the fact that I got an X-Men boxset for Christmas so have started going through the film, prepping for the release of Logan. I do like X-Men and many other Marvel films - bring on Guardians of the Galaxy 2. I am Groot.

However, what I'm in two minds about going to see is the next instalment of Transformers as from the adverts it doesn't look like life is going well for Bumblebee and I just know I will cry like a baby if anything happens to him. 

Are there any films that you're looking forward to or any firm favourites?
