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 :/
