Chart Lust

I'm not letting myself buy any more charts. I'm leaving everything up to the reward program now so if I want a new chart, I have to finish one (FIE!) But, I still have chart lust!

Posting the links to the charts instead of pictures of them since I'm totally not at work right now (lie).

First let me get my Myles Pinkney obsession out of the way:

Magic I just think this chart is so pretty and would be so much fun to stitch. Even the background sky parts wouldn't be boring since there's so much variation in the colors.

The Alchemist Love the dark colors in this one and how much detail there is, especially in the things he has on his worktable. I would just LOVE stitching that candle on the right.

Treasure Dragon love love love this one! The dragon's treasure would be a confetti-heavy pure joy to stitch and I think the stalactites in the cave would look awesome. Plus, dragons!

"Lady Godiva" by John Maler Collier This piece is beautiful and soft. I keep seeing it pop up everywhere, which has only worked to enhance my lust for it.

"Tarot Town Two" by Ciro Marchetti Fun and colorful and full of magic and imagination.

"The Course of Empire - Destruction" Just beautiful and powerful, though I can see the sky getting on my nerves.

"Old World Map" I really like maps...

Ok that's not even COUNTING my wish list that already exists or my stash. As you can see, it's a hopeless case.

In other news I may be changing around the look of this blog some. I'm getting kind of annoyed with how it looks, but have no idea how I WANT it to look, so if you see stuff moving around some in the next few days, that's what's going on.

Boyfriend is learning to share me with the stitchery now, so I've been getting some stitches in, and it's been lovely. We call it our quiet couch time. I stitch like a demon and he reads nerdy geology magazines. It's kind of wonderful.

Happy stitching all!

Those charts are amazing! Now I want to buy some charts, but I'll resist ;)
Great to hear that your BF gets along with your happy so well =)

I certainly understand your HAED chart lust. Old World Map was already on my wish list but now I need to add Lady Godiva. I have already bought 4 patterns - no more for me for now. Good luck with your HAED addiction.

Sounds like a great way to spend time together, and still have your own interests. Thanks for showing off your charts. I have added a couple to my already out of control wish list. Lovely selections.
