We all know I’m not going to live long enough to stitch even half the charts I’ve bought. I really have not been buying many new ones. I’m being careful these days to buy only the ones I want to start stitching on NOW but there are even more of those in my stash that I’ll probably never get to. The ones I found last night were:
Agnes Lyle 1832 by Whilst Iris Naps. I love working off pdfs using Pattern Keeper. I love all the research that is included in the Whilst Iris Naps charts and I love that she has kept her price reasonable. Some chart prices are just going through the roof and there’s a point where a price gets to the point that I just won’t buy it.
Bad picture from my computer screen but I like the colors in this one. There are some 1 over 1 stitches, some four sides stitches and some Algerian eyelets. I might add . . I’ve never done 1 over 1, four sided stitches or Algerian eyelets but you know what I say – if everyone else can figure it out, so can I.
The second chart I ordered is Margaret Lillie 1812 by The Scarlett House. I almost never found that one on The Scarlett House website but dang . . there are a whole lot of charts there I’ve never seen and I need them. I bought mine from an etsy shop and got the last one so if you want that one, you’ll have to google it. I do like the chart a lot but I think those might be dachshunds so . . that’s my story!
Heck . . I guess I got three because I got this one too. I needed one more to get free shipping so . . justifiable purchase! Life on Sampler Hill by The Scarlett House.
I hear there’s another Needlework Expo coming up in August! That’s when lots of new designs are released. Cross stitching seems like knitting and clothes patterns to me. Sometimes I wanted every new thing I saw and sometimes I looked at them and tried to make myself want something but nothing interested me. Let’s hope nothing from the August Needlework Expo excites me.
