This is my second SFS post and if I can improve it in any way, please let me know! I'm really happy to be so far into the black. I think if I can keep it this way I'll be in for a nice splurge at the end of the year. 

I purchased these at The Wooden Needle in Stowe, Vermont:

And I purchased the companion piece to The Princess and the Dragon:

The Triumphant Ride:

I'd like to stitch it on a new colour Chromatic Alchemy came out with, Vincent. It's so new it's not on her website yet, but I think I need it for this one! The owners of both stores were nice enough to show me an overlay:

Isn't that awesome?? I love it and can't wait to get there. But Princess and the Dragon will be first on Chromatic Alchemy's Amarinthine. I don't have an overlay of that, but I do have Triumphant Ride on Amarinthine, just to give you the effect of the two together. 

Try and picture the bottom silhouette on the upper fabric colour. 

I love the moodiness of the Amarinthine and the uplifting colours in Vincent for the different charts. 

I hope everyone had a good month and Happy Stitching!


P.S. Esmerelda pointed out I forgot to add photos of my finishes! Here they are:

    Greetings from holland

    1. I added photos now, thank you! I had meant to add them but I forgot when I got carried away with the new starts!

  2. Wonderful SFS post. Congrats on your budgeting. Love both charts and the fabrics look wonderful. I'm so looking forward to getting to see these in progress.

  3. Wow really nice! Love the dragon and knight pieces ... will definitely bookmark the page for potential shopping. Some great finishes too!

    1. Yes, she has some great ones there, and she just added a wish list feature and layaway! I'm doomed.

  4. You're doing great with SFS! Love the fabrics you've chosen for your new starts. They give a great "feel" to both pieces.

  5. I love the manor on the blue fabric, great choice :)
    Dog lessons i saw allready in a older post, that one is so cute

    1. Thank you. I can't tell you what it was, it was a gift and I don't remember the colour or where it was from.

  6. Very nice finishes. I LOVE the Vincent fabric! I'm not sure SFS is a good thing or not, I keep finding such great pieces on everyone's blogs!!

    1. Thank you. :) You're right, it gives me a lot to add to my wish list.

  7. Lovely new addition, this is a cute theme! I wonder if there will be more in the series (goodbye, budget :D)? The Vincent fabric is really awesome.

    1. If there are, I hope they aren't charted for a while. I need some time to work on these 2 first! Yes, I love that fabric.

  8. great finishes, and good job on the SFS

  9. The fabrics are awesome and the finishes look lovely. Do you have a pic of haunted house when it's glowing in the dark? They're really great.
