College page 10 and chart lust

I have finally broken into the double digits for College! Took me long enough, I've been stuck on this page for months.

Before:


Now:


Not taken in natural light so it's a bit dark, but again I just couldn't wait to snap a photo and post it. I'll start page 11 tomorrow - so exciting! I think it looks pretty good, too. It was such a mush of colors while I stitched it but, of course, you put in the last stitch and step back and there it is.

Regarding the chart lust, HAED recently released a chart that I have just been staring at practically on a daily basis.


It's Annya Kai's "Alice in Wonderland and Caterpillar." I'm resisting buying it until I have a finish. But when I do, this puppy will be mine. I don't usually become so infatuated with charts, but I love Alice in Wonderland and it's just whimsical enough for me to be cute but not yet annoying.

I think I'm going to keep it a short post today. I have a lot on my mind and I feel like if I keep typing it will just turn into mush. So I'll leave it at this. Success at page 10 was had, on to the next!

Congrats on finishing the page =) Some pages just take for ever to finish ;-)

Your new chart looks wonderful =) I hope you'll have a finish soon so you can get it. I'm eyeing a few charts, too, but up to know I am very good at not buying anything ;-)

College is really looking amazing!!

I drooled a bit over the same chart but was able to hold myself back. I'm not an Alice fan, but I absolutely LOVE the colors in this (as with Kai's other work).

You are making good progress. The new chart is nice. I too feel in love with one recently. I'm hoping hubby will gift it to me!!!! I wanted to ask you how to do the progress bars - the one that shows how many stitches you have completed, how many in the pattern and the percent done?

There is something about that Alice shot -I love the way Annya Kai's uses colors.

College looks amazing, congrats!
Love the Alice in Wonderland, I was on the HAED site last night after deciding to get myself a chart, and spent ages looking at this one, but I went for the other new Kai (Red Riding Hood) instead!

Your stitching is beautiful!

Congrats on your page finish!
Annya Kai is my favorite designer right now, I'm hoping HAED brings out more owl patterns by her!!

Love your progress on College! And I say...a page counts as a finish...which = buy a chart! Alice in Wonderland and Caterpillar should be yours! (plus there's a sale on!)

Congrats on the double figures!!

I love the Alice chart. I'd say remove all the blue and stitch it on a gorgeous hand-dyed fabric.
