Stitching Wish List

I've been meaning to post this for a while, but it kinda slipped my mind. Some time ago a Facebook friend of mine posted a photo album containing pics of the projects on her stitching wish list. I thought it was a great idea and I decided to share some of mine with you.

Now the "wish list" is not to be confused with the "IN basket", which consists of projects I actually have a plan to do within the near future. Some are even kitted up. Now I know some of you are saying, "So what?". Well, I don't kit my projects up until I'm ready to work on them. I hate to duplicate materials (floss) and I really hate to go looking through kitted projects for something I need right now. Hence the pile of charts in the "IN basket" ready to be kitted. Do I sound really anal? How very perceptive of you.

The wish list consists of designs that I fully intend to do sometime in my ever shortening life, but for which I have no immediate plan. Some of you may not recognize some of these charts because you may not have been born when I bought them, but some of my favorite designs are classics. (Laura, you know which ones I'm talking about.) I will try to be as complete as I can (off the top of my head) with details about titles and designers, but I am not currently sitting in my library. So bear with me. Oh, and these are in no particular order.

"Virtue Outshines the Stars"
Needles of Prayse
Darlene O'Steen "Le Jardin de Plaisir"
Long Dog Samplers"Spanish Bleu"
Sampler Cove"Read Between the Lines"
Blue Ribbon Designs


  1. I would be embarrassed to show my wish list. I have bought fabric for most of the pieces I want to do (including "Virtue Outshines the Stars"--good choice!) but I haven't put the floss with it yet. And how will I possibly afford to frame them all??? Ack!!
