You know if you lot want me to be bad and keep buying charts , you really need to stop sending them to me .. lol not that i am complaining i have been getting the most lovely gifts but i wish you would all stop treating me.. i really do struggle to keep up with the return gifts !!!!
anyway i think i am going to make next year the year of four samplers, Cirques, patchwork sampler, ONE other Ink circles sampler… not sure which and ONE french Sampler most likely my AMAP 8…
plus after xmas i will buy the charting software and start trying to design my own,.. so who knows maybe the others won’t get done.
the question is which other Ink Circles Sampler will i succumb to..
I have Kaleidoscope and Sea stars ( though i don’t really have either one is enroute the other is locked away to officially be opened on my birthday) plus a little pixie has sent garden Stars which is also enroute, and then there is the purple sampler in the pipe line from Ink Circles probably early next year… HOW WILL I CHOOSE!!!
When i ordered my eterna silks this morning using my discount voucher i included some nice blue and green overdyeds which i though would be good for either Garden or Sea Stars if they get a guernsey, and the purples i ordered can be used for either patchwork or purple sampler, so i am hedging bets a bit.. also think my sampler will be blues theme… just a feeling i have
I love the names of my eterna overdyeds…
Dragonfly, Wild Orchid, Dreamscape, Geranium, Sweet peas, Wildflowers, twilight, Dawn, Navajo, Hibiscus, Periwinkles, Glass Beach, Sea Grotto, Caribbean, Mediterranean, Adriatic..
i love the names designer/dyers come up with for colours
i also got a heap of white silk for later…
I also started trying to narrow down which Quickstitch i would start from HAED next year and when i had a list of 10 and had not even gone throough 50 charts i realised i was in trouble.. i know i could do the annette randomiser, but knowing i will probably only have 1 QS start for the year makes it really hard..
on the list so far are
Autumn Frost Lisa Victoria
Keeper of Secrets Selina fenech
PurpleRose Witch ..CCKuik
Peachy Pink… CCKuik
Broken Angel Meredith Dillman
Scarlet Witch Caron Vinson
Violet and Gold… Molly Harrison
Pink Braids ..Elaine Cox
Gentle… Elaine Cox
calla Lilly Fae …nadia tate
So you see my dilemma.. i sort of think i might actually be leaning towards the Keeper of Secrets , as i ordered the white silk with that chart in mind, but i have also toyed with making my own JBG QS from Pale Rose as i am giving up hope of any of her charts being Quick stitch charted, and after looking at Sue’s amazing Red Eye from A Pale Comparrison
but knowing me a few more releases and 50 more walks of the dog and i would have changed my mind ten times.. and i just realsied i did not even consider the Black lace Sampler.. sigh…see plans go awry before i even hit publish
goodness i ramnbels on a lot this post didn’t i!!!!
