Have you ever found yourself anticipating what you'll be stitching next? Silly question, I know. Since I'm on the road home with the poppies (even if I didn't stitch on them at all this week), I've been trying to decide what larger project to start next. There's a Van Gogh that I'm waiting for in the mail (but that's for another post). I had seen The Wave in a catalog but was sure I could find the chart for it. I did, on Cross stitch Collectibles. Using 101 different colors. Now I'm all for realism but come on. The artist probably didn't use 101 colors. Then I found it on Artecy which I have been a member of forever. I've printed off a lot of their patterns but have never stitched one. She only used 43 colors. That I can manage. Then I saw another by the same artist, Mount Fuji in Clear Weather. Now I'm stuck. I like both of them. Which one should I do next? I'm leaning towards The Wave simply because I've liked it longer. How's that for logic? Or I may just wait till the Van Gogh comes in and I see which one I like best then. No matter what I decide, I think I plan on doing it over 1 on 25 count lugana. I just love the look of over one and I think I'm up for the challenge. But first, back to the poppies!
