I need help, Fairy Tales Sampler is coming to an end, least way I reckon it'll be finished in the next couple of weeks, so, as I'm sure most of you can sympathise with, my mind's already straying to what I might start on next. I've got it down to a few, and now I want people's opinions on them please.
QS Alice in the Clockwork by JBG. A HAED, of course (most of the ones on this list are). She's a QS and so has the advantage of being a bit smaller and so might actually be finished in the same decade as I started it. It's not to bad on confetti that I've seen either. But it is a bit brown, and I maybe want something a bit more colourful.
I know, it's a truly terrible photograph, I've had to photograph the chart, because I couldn't find a picture of what it would look like finished. It'll be quite a simple stitch compared to most of the others on this list, and it is what I originally said I was going to work on once Fairy Tale Sampler's finished.
QS Genevieve by Hannah Lynn, she was the first Hannah Lynn that I bought, I just liked her. I wish my hair looked like that, and he gloves are adorable, I've got a pair like that, but they're less delicate.
Melinda and Moohoo, another Hannah Lynn. She's just adorable, and I quite fancy the idea of doing a Hannah Lynn like this, where you can do the outline on a page then colour her in. And I like the colours on this, and I want a hat like Melinda,it's cool! Oh yeah, and my mother loves owls, and I think Moohoo is cute!
Chakra Fae by Linda Ravenscroft, this is the one I'm kinda erring towards starting next, there's a SAL on facebook which I'm currently a member of, but I'm not yet stitching. I have also kitted her up. I bought her as soon as she came out just cos I loved the colour, although there is a lot of 3770 (beige) background, as you can probably imagine from the picture. I'm just not completely sure that she'll fit on to the frame that I'm about to free up, hence the debating.
My first pattern bought from Soda Stitch Pattern Mall, they're adorably cute, although I'm thinking that I might use this as my next portable pattern to live under my desk at work and go to craft group with me. I always need one that's a bit smaller and portable, because I'm unwilling to take HAEDs out because they're a bit unweildy when they're on a scroll frame.
My first Mystic Stitch, I bought 5 Mark Spain charts from them recently, I love the Ladies of Spain collection, and think they'd look loely on the wall when finished. I love the skirts on this pictures, and the hand painted backgrounds (well of course they are, but they actually look hand painted - you know what I mean)!
So, there we are, more than I can possibly decide between. I've got an inkling, but I'm not quite certain and would love to know what other people's opinions are.
