It took me a bit to decide on what to post for this one. I didn't want to duplicate Kate or Keebs, although I definitely have enough Durene Jones animal charts to fill this list 3 times over...I certainly have enough animal charts in my stash, but I posted a little bit about them last
TOP 5 ANIMAL CHARTS
1. Regal Tiger
I think I got this one on clearance at A.C. Moore when they were clearing out a lot of their cross-stitch stuff. I haven't picked it up yet, but I would love to get to work on this one.
2. The Guardian
I think this was another one from A.C. Moore, and again, I'd love to get this one going, but too many WIPs.
3. In Harmony
This is one I've actually started, although it hasn't been touched in years. It used to be my secret at-work project that I left at work so DH couldn't see it. I've since left that job (over 5 years ago) and I don't think I've had this out since! I can't even find a photo of it, although I'm sure I took one sometime. Plus this isn't on my WIPs page, so I'll have to add it.
4. Daisy Dragon
I think I might have picked this one up when my LNS was closing, again on clearance. I think this would be fun to stitch as well and would look good in my house. Some day it will be a start!
5. Honest Santa - I Didn't Do It!
I bought this last year at The Wooden Needle in Stowe, Vermont and I never did get it started for Xmas. Definitely this year it will be started and finished!! Hold me to it! :)
And now for the bonus section of this week's Top 5 Tuesday post:
TOP 5 ANIMAL CHARTS - In My Wishlist at 123stitch.com
1. Polar Bear Snowglobe
I'd like to finish the Santa one I've started before I get this one. :)
2. Sleepy Hollow
This has been in my wish list forever, I really need to break down and get it one of these days.
3. Light and Shadow
Some very cool dragon designs, and since they're somewhat smaller than others, I can fool myself into thinking they'd be done quickly. ;)
4. Tribal Ladybug
I have quite a few of the tribal designs in my wish list, and I already have the elephant Kate talked about in her post. There are some I love and some I really think are blah, so I think it's more personal taste with these tribal designs.
Such a nice, realistic giraffe! My only issue with this is it's a kit and I'm so-so on purchasing kits since the fabric is often not as nice as I'm used to.
There, now you know a little bit more about my stitchy stash and wishes. :) I hope you all have a nice week. Last week was a little wacky, and I don't think I'm the only one that noticed. It was a full moon on Friday or Saturday and the strangest thing happened during my hockey game on Friday. This is such a rare occurrence I couldn't even find any photos online!
We were playing, skating around, and one of our defence (stays back near the goalie) took a shot on the other team's goal. The puck got stuck inside the skate of a player on the other team!
Here's a photo of a skate
getting stuck in the hole under the boot part, that is exactly what happened. You could never do that by trying, I swear, but it happened during my game during a full moon.
The next question might be why is the hole the size a puck can get stuck in? Well, it almost never happens, and I think it had something to do with flexibility and stability on skates. So that's my bizarre full moon story, do you have any?
