Fairies at SEA

Sorry for not updating this sooner but our Fairies have been busy with lots of adventures.  A while back we all decided to go for an Adventure on the high seas and some low seas as well.  Our Fairies insisted that they be allowed to join in the fun and travel with us.  We all boarded Carnival's Fanatasy Fun Ship in the port of Charleston, South Carolina.
It took the Fairies a bit to get their sea legs but they quickly managed to get the hang of cruising aboard this fun ship.  Fairies are all about fun and they began enjoying themselves immediately.

One of the most pleasant times of day on the high seas is sunset.  This was a picture perfect sunset and the ship kept traveling through the night while the Fairies were in, well, Fairy land sleep.

On their first night at sea in their little bed they were joined by towel elephants.  Together they ate chocolate and read all about the fun times that were ahead.

Since the Fairies were on a knitting cruise they decided to get into the bag of yarn and needles to see what exciting things we were going to be making and maybe try their hand at a little knitting.

Soon our Fairies were joined by some more ambitious knitters.  It is a closely knit group.  Fairies have a  tough time with needles but many aboard the cruise line seemed to be getting the hang of things just fine thank you. As you can see, knitting can be very thirsty work.


After 40 hours of sailing our ship finally arrived in the Bahamas early in the morning.  The  Fairies were so excited to see what new adventures awaited us on land.


After a day of fun and sun we all went back on aboard the Carnival Fantasy for more knitting and to continue our cruise back to Charleston. 

As our ship left the dock, from the side of the ship, the Fairies spotted a house that they might like to stay in during their next visit to the Bahamas.  Maybe Fairies live there as well? 

All this knitting and sun made our Fairies very tired.  So they decided to take a quick nap while all the knitters were at dinner.

They dreamed there were towel frogs in bed with them and then woke up to a new frog towel animal courtesy of the room steward. 
TheFairies loved every night when we were surprised by a new towel animal and quickly made it a friend.  Fairies are very friendly and love making new friends!

Towel lobsters too.
Well that is about all we can tell you about the latest Fairy adventure.  We can tell you that all of our knitters, knitters friends and Fairies made it back safely to shore.  In fact two of the Fairies went home to live with one of the knitters so that they could play with her two little girls.  The Fairies have more adventures planned and we'll tell you about them soon.

Fairy Fibre Store Visit - The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For

On our last Fairy outing, our little mischievous Fairies sat on the nose of Mr. Mellow Mushroom himself.  They also explored under some large mushrooms in the restaurant.  Our Fairies didn't want any pizza that day which was fine with us. Savta, the Fairy Maker, gave them a good talking to and told them during our next visit they would have to be better behaved.

We needed some more yarn to make more Fairies so we visited The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For located in South Park.  (4724 Sharon Rd., Suite K  Charlotte, NC 28210)
(704) 643-7720
In no time our Fairies made themselves at home in this elegant store.  They offered the Fairy Maker lots of ideas on different colors and kinds of yarn that Fairies like.

The store's owner, Debbie Davis, was kind enough to allow them to stay for awhile.  She asked our  Fairies to make little girls and boys smile when they visit her store.
So if you go and visit Debbie's nice store, you can see two of our Fairies sitting there happy as can be.

In speaking with the Fairy Maker, Savta, she had some other Fairy Travel ideas.  She mentioned something about teaching our Fairies to swim.  I wonder if Fairies know how to swim? We will have to see and let you know. 

In the meantime, please visit our little winged friends @ Debbie's shop.  They get lonely and really like to see girls and boys of all ages.
