– if I can find them again!
I know I’ll never do all of them but maybe I’ll look back for inspiration on what to get next, and update this ‘wish list’ along the way!
Nimue – Clair de Lune
Lanarte – Marjolein Bastin – Brush/Bird
Lanarte – Marjolein Bastin – Vera the Mouse – Dressing (though this was hard to find, might have to get it from abroad)
I’ve decided I’ll treat myself when I get home to the entire DMC/Anchor (both?!) standard colours range. That way charts and little “I’d stitch it now if I had the stuff” magazine projects are easily accessible to me too. Now I need to think of a pretty and practical way to store them. I wind them onto the cardboard flat bobbins but don’t like the plastic boxes they then get stored in. I don’t want to shell out for one of those expensive wooden chests you see advertised in the magazines all the time though!
Also – if I stitched so many needlerolls, emerys and biscornus, where do you display them without the decorations looking ‘bitty’?!
-Repetitive designs – haven’t I just stitched this fourteen hour long section?
