When I don't have time to stitch, I enjoying buying stitching stuff like threads (my most favorite), charts and canvases. But I'm afraid that I really don't need to buy anything anymore, I really should do some of the projects that I've got, beyond the ones I have listed on my blog. I have just shy of 1,400 charts and x-stitch kits in my possession. Most of them are older patterns as I didn't really stitch much for a couple of years, but that doesn't mean I don't like them anymore, or that they have dropped off of my want to stitch some day. So while I was home I decided to look back through my patterns and pick out a few more that I'd like to stitch over the next couple of years. Some of my starts may get bumped back into the UFO bin, but they will re-appear again one day!!
So here are the charts I've picked out sorry that the pictures aren't all that good, but when you use your phone as your camera, you get take what you get:
Years ago I ran across Dimples Designs while at market with a designer friend and absolutely fell in love with his stuff. I got several of his bugs, these were from his web-site when it was up and running. They aren't big and while there are lots of color changes should go relatively "fast". So I might sneak one or two in during this year's stitching.......
Well time to take the wee one to the movies with my friend and her grandchildren. Looking forward to seeing one of the many great children's movies.
I know in my mind I stitch a lot faster than my fingers actually go and my list here is longer than I'd accomplish in a year with everything else, but this is a cheap dream as these are all paid for many years ago :)
