Chart Purchase

I’ve been working on  Mirabilia and Nora Corbett charts for so long, my eyes couldn’t help but wander when I saw that Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED) was having a 45% off Mother’s Day Sale.  Seriously, who could resist?

I have a wishlist with HAED; however, I didn’t purchase any of my wishlist items, because I came across a few other charts that I liked better.  I chose the following:

As you can see, I’ve stuck to my fairy theme.  Sorry, couldn’t help it.  They really are my favourite subject to stitch next to baby designs, i.e. samplers, birth announcements, etc.

I already have a few HAED charts in my stash that I have yet to stitch.  I promise I will tackle them one day.  I have a current UFO entitled Dark Wings.  I’ve started this three times and by the looks of it, I will be starting it a fourth time.  Turns out, I didn’t purchase a piece of fabric large enough to complete it.  Thank goodness I caught it on time with the help of Maria before I got very far on with the stitching.  Ugh.  This chart just wasn’t meant to be.

My plan of action is to complete the following projects in this order:

  1. Rhythm (Once I receive the beads I need in the shipment I need.)
  2. Harmony (Once I receive the Krenik I need in the shipment I’m waiting for.)
  3. Evening Primrose (To add to my pixie wall.  The framer already has this frame ordered for me.)

Once I finish the above, I will be (for the first time ever), putting the following projects on rotation:

  1. Lyrical or Caprice (still have to decide which I like better.)
  2. Dark Wings (I am determined to finish this!)

I will need to buy a new piece of fabric for Dark Wings.  Too bad HAED charts aren’t listed on the fabric viewer.  It would help my decision tremendously.
