Small finish

Embroidered hanky for Tamsin's Grade 1 character dance.

I did one for Jess when she did Grade 1, so only fair that Tamsin got one done for her.

Grade 2 is an embroidered pillow. for Jess' one I used a lovely sampler from UK's Cross Stitcher.

There's bound to be something in my stash of those magazines that will be just right for Tinkerbelle.

I did warn y'all...

... cos here's Tamsin's first Rhythmic comp:

RG Level 1 hoop routine, Counties Invitational at Bruce Pulman Park.

I have no idea what her score was - I missed it being put up. Hopefully her coach will know it and I'll find out at Tamsin's next class. Otherwise I just have to wait till the results are posted up on Gymsports NZ's site.
Only a hoop routine at this stage, her freehand is under construction.

She has worked really hard over the last couple of weeks on this and other skills - she can now skip backwards! And this is the child that could barely skip with a rope at all at the beginning of the year.
I thought this was a lovely routine from Tamsin - especially as she's only been doing rhythmic for 2&half terms, and only at Xtreme RhythmiX since the beginning of this term (meaning completely new routines to learn).

Next comp: Spirals in Te Awamutu, first weekend of the holidays.
Go Tinkerbelle!

UPDATE: Tamsin scored 11.525! Top score in Hoop was 13 something, so she did really well.

Tis the season to be competing...

... so the video camera was charged and in use!

Jess competing WAG L5 at the Waitakere comp on May 10. Watch carefully, as it is her first and last L5 video as she has since quit artistic gymnastics. Sigh.

Tamsin competing WAG L1B at the Kerrin Bishop Memorial, held at Counties Manukau, trying so hard to not shuffle her feet (cos each shuffle = .2 deduction, doncha know?)

More to come in due course as Tamsin has 4 more comps to go.

Don't say I didn't warn y'all!!
