What did I get from the sale...?

Kun sähköpostiini ilmestyi yhteensä 40% alennuskuponki, en yksinkertaisesti voinut vastustaa kiusausta....

When I got the coupon for a total 40% off, I just couldn't resist...

Nene Thomas: Lullaby

Tässä minua kiehtoi eniten tuo meri, tunnelma ja tytön puvun yksityiskohdat. Tosin en tiedä, kuinka jaksan pistellä nuo kaikki linnut, mutta se jää nähtäväksi. Tähän olen tilannut kankaan ja aloitusta suunnittelen tämän vuoden puolelle.

What I love the most of this chart is the sea, atmosphere and of course her dress. Will I ever manage to stitch all those birds, I don't know. I've purchased the fabric for her, and she's going to be one of my new starts of the year.

Zindy Nielsen: Breathe In, Breathe Out

Pidän Zindyn malleista, tämä on yksi hänen parhaimmistaan. Mitä muuta tähän sanomaan, upea malli, eikö vain? :)

I love Zindy's art, this is one of the best. What else can I say, she's gorgeus isn't she? :)

Jessica Galbreth: Comfort

Tämä on Jessica Galbrethin Vintage Angel-mallistoa, josta varsinkin tämä malli veti puoleensa. Yleensä en Galbrethin malleista välitä, mutta näissä värimaailma on niin pehmeä ja kaunis, että pakko oli saada.

This is one of the Vintage Angel-collection (by Jessica Galbreth), especially this one was my favorite. Usually I don't mind her designs, but in these the colors are so soft and beautiful, so I had to have it.

Ciro Marchetti: Mermaid

Tämän kohdalla totesin olevani järjiltäni. Työn koko on 625x937, joka tekee yli 585 000 pistoa. Ohjeitakin on yli 90 sivua...! Tiesin tämän kaiken ostaessani mallia, enkä siltikään voinut jättää ostamatta. Olen jo pitkään halunnut Ciro Marchettin mallin ja tämä on niistä ollut aina se ykkönen. Marchettin malleissa värit ovat niin kirkkaat ja selkeät, sekä kuvassa on piilossa pieniä yksityiskohtia joita ensisilmäyksellä ei huomaakaan. Tähän olen kankaan jo tilannut, tuskin maltan odottaa pääseväni tekemään ensimmäisiä pistoja! :D

I've come to a conclusion that I must be a lunatic. She'll be 625x937 stitches, which is over 585 000 total stitches. And there are 90 pages in the chart...! I knew all this before I bought her and still couldn't walk away. I've wanted for a long time one of the Ciro Marchetti's designs and this was the one who spoke to me. The colors are so bright and clear and there are always some details in the picture, what you miss when you look at for the first time. I've purchased the fabric and can hardly wait for making the first stitches! :D

Nyt olen ostolakossa (joka siis koskee vain ja ainoastaan malleja) kesäkuun loppuun asti. Tässä on monta hypisteltävää ja ihasteltavaa siihen asti ;)

Now I'm not allowed to buy any new charts until July. But I have a feeling I'll be busy with these ;)

  1. Great choices in the charts. You and I obviously love the same artists. I bought charts from each of these artists as well. Will be watching your wips with avid keeness. Please don't forget Evolutionistic though love that one as well. LOL! Good luck and happy stitching

  2. Don't worry, I might be a serial starter, but I will be a serial finisher someday ;) I'll get back to her (Evolutionistic) eventually. I'm pretty impatient person and need some time to "recover" from the last page I stitched. Then I can get back with all that passion and enthusiasm I feel for each chart I've started.

  3. Really lovely choices! My favourite will be Breathe In, Breathe Out.

    I didn't buy anything for this sale at all. I just don't know what to buy. There are a lot of pretty ones but I am so scared when there are more than 60 colours involved!

  4. Thanks Yvonne :)

    I think I've reached the point where I can call myself as a collector. I know I won't stitch (or at least finish) everything what is in my stash, but I think that's part of the fun :) The knowledge of being able to stitch whatever I desire is almost as important as the stitching itself. Just start with something which has more than 60 colours and you'll find out soon that it's not difficult at all. You get used to it pretty soon :)

  5. I've got so many in my cart during the sale but in the end, I cannot decide which one or two or three or more so I became a good girl and did not click the check out button :D

  6. Lucky you, I wish I had a self-control like yours when it comes to charts :D
