The Bucket List

I pinched this idea from The Enchanted Burrow, she's just finished her latest WIP and while deciding what to stitch next she started thinking about what would be on her stitching Bucket List. And it got me wondering what mine would be. And remember that I've already got 5 on the go to finish first so for the sake of accuracy, I'll put those on the list first:
HAED: Lancelot and Guinevere (Fenech)
HAED: Dragon Rider (Spangler)
Maia: Winter's Majesty
Bothy: Dictionary of Tea
Kustom Krafts: Little Snap Dragon
Birth Sampler
Passione Ricamo: Once Upon a Time

Mirabilia: Venitian Oppulence
Mirabilia: The Kiss
Mirabilia: Three for Tea
Mirabilia: Midsummer Nights Fairy
Maia: Geishas
Lanarte: Indian Beauty
Dimensions Gold: Mighty Samurai
Memoirs of a Geisha
Self Designed: Susan Sto Helit (Discworld)
Self Designed: Princess Bride
HAED: Meredith Dillman: Alice in Wonderland
HAED: Selina Fenech: Bubbles

Oh dear, I make that 46 charts (plus 5 already on the go), and that's just off the top of my head. If I average one a year (some easily small enough, some far too big, so it'll average out), then I might just manage it. Wish my luck!
A stitching I will go, a stitching I will go.ey, ay, adieeo, a stitching I will go.

So go on then, be brave, what's your bucket list, then look back once a year, add on the ones that you've found in the last year and cross off the ones that you've completed, it'll be fun!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I've just seen this on The Enchanted Burrow! What agreat idea.
The Regency Ballroom is by Sandy Littlejohn. I've just put the 3 mags up on Ebay because it's not my thing and I need to sell some stuff before I can subscribe to any more mags!

I love the two other Dimensions Gold ones and have been trying to work out if I can justify adding these two to my "collection". You didn't have an email to reply to about Yours Truly Yoda. Could you please email me about it? Thanks

Joysze said...

Whoah, Kim!!! What a list!!! I'll have to think about my list......

leeni1176 said...

Kaisievic said...

A fantastic list, I am going to contemplate mine now, following your example. I have a couple of questions for you, where can I get the designs "Winter's majesty" and Dictionary of Tea - I love them both and would love to add them to my bucket list.
cheers, Kaye

Tama said...

Your list made me drool... I shall have to do this someday!
and really, we all need to become immortal just because of cross stitch.

Maureen said...

Great list and very ambitious! I did a HAED bucket list recently, but by Artist (room to grow)!
