Batalphabet by: Glendon Place
I have been online this afternoon... You will not believe it... but, I have a little journal type book that has my list to buy, in the future charts, patterns, and books for stitching . I have a problem.. It is called Not enough money for my WANTS... lol  I have charts listed from years ago... why because designers keep coming out with all these new charts I want before, I can purchase the ones I have wrote down in the Little Floral Book. lol  Will It ever End? I hope not... These are just some I wrote down today....I love that Batalphabet by Glendon Place.

Goblin's Parade by Blackberry Lane Designs

Spider Banner by Allessandra Adelaide Needleworks

Which Witch's Boot - Crabapple Hill
How I wish I could quilt....

Funky Flower by By The Bay Needlearts - Donna
It is not Halloween, but I love it and it's ORANGE!!! 

Bats Cats & Witches by Prairie Schooler
I want to make me a wooden cat like this one!

That is just the start of adding to my I WANT list!  Does anyone else makes list? or is it just me..... Can I get all this bought.... Can I even stitch all these in my lifetime.... What will I do..... How will I do it....Tune in each day for The Days Of My Life.   Did you happen to hear that Days of our Lives and other soaps are ending..
Just a Thought........ I think the heat is getting to me!!!

Oh man--I just adore all those things! I have heard all the soaps are going away and I hate it! I grew up watching The Young and The Restless and all the others before and after that one during the day. I'll miss them.

Ooh....I'm loving all the Halloween designs! Too many cute ones to pick a fav. Good luck deciding which ones to do! :o)

Hi, April ~ I do believe we all have lists of "wants" but you are right, the designers keep coming out with more and more wonderful designs. It's hard to keep up & I'm quite sure I will never get all of my patterns that I already have completed. It doesn't stop me from buying more though, lol. Have a happy stitching weekend.

Before I retired in May, I figured I had bought enough charts to last me for quite a while but I can't seem to stop either. There are so many new designs coming out that I just adore and must have. I think it's a sickness but it's one I definitely don't mind having!

one of my best friends is a big cross stitcher. I LOVE all the halloween things she has made over the years! lots of great stitch patterns!
youre right, we cant have it all.. darn!

BucksCountyFolkArt said...

oooooooooo! These are nice. I don't blame you for wanting to do them all!

As for lists, I'm a list-making machine and have the filled spiral notebooks to prove it! The best part is seeing them all checked off. : )

Ranae said...

I don't see these. I don't see these. lol
I have a stitcher's bible too that is chock full of things I want. things I need. What fun designs, now my list is a tad longer
Stay cool!!

Shelly said...

Yes, I have wish lists of what I want, the fabric and fibers I want! Some get checked off, others have to wait when I can fit it into my budget! I like the Goblin's Parade and the Spider Banner designs too.

TinaTx said...

I make lists too - I'm just not organized about it. I make notes on post-its then I have them sticking everywhere!
Love, love that witch's boot!

Yes, yes! I completely understand a wish list and not enough funds..........sigh. In fact, do you remember the Cross Stitch Magazine by Leisure Arts? I have so many of those that I have saved from back over the years. One in particular has a pumpkin with a vase of orange flowers with a quilt in the background. I have saved that pattern for years in a bag with all of the floss and the linen to stitch it on.........just always putting it off. Now that I am through with my cross stitch rooster......I think it would be a great time to start this pattern. Yes, I heard that the soaps were ending..........those were such a staple on the TV at home when I was growing up. I remember Mama ironing and watching them. Well, stay cool and I hope that a money tree sprouts in your yard so that you can buy every thing you want! blessings,Kathleen
