|Atlantis - Linda Ravenscroft|
|Lancelot and Guenevere - Selina Fenech|
|Pearl Birthstone Fairy - Rachel Anderson|
|Sistine Chapel Ceiling - Michelangelo|
|Christine - Aimee Stewart|
I'm really loving the individual figures by Linda Ravenscroft, and Atlantis is not the first in this style from her I've gotten (as evidenced here, here and here and several selections on my HAED wishlist).
Lancelot and Guenevere was actually the first HAED pattern I ever saw on a blog that got me hooked up with the site in the first place and I am a huge fan of Arthurian legend.
Pearl is my daughter's birthstone - I already have Emerald for me and my son, just need to get Citrine for my husband to round out the collection!
The Sistine Chapel Ceiling is absolutely stunning in person. I've had the pleasure of seeing it twice in person and it's taken my breath away both times. I have a poster of this we got when my husband and I were last in Rome, but I would love to stitch it. I also want to get the sister piece, The Last Judgement, which is in the Sistine Chapel as well.
Christine is part of a Phantom of the Opera mask series from Aimee Stewart and Phantom of the Opera is tied with Les Miserables for my favorite musical of all time. I want to also get Think of Me to go along with it, even if that means I now have that song in my head...Think of me...Think of me fondly when we say goodbye....ahem, anyway...
Will I ever get all of these plus what I have in my stash plus what I still have on my wishlist ever done? Who knows...but part of the fun of this hobby is collecting beautiful things to have to choose from when the urge strikes, and I love all of my new pretty pieces! Now, I just need to stay off of the website until the sale passes to resist the urge to buy more! Ha ha!
Tonight's stitching was minimal...it was a long day (week) at work, and we had Girl Scouts tonight, which takes up most of my time and energy on meeting days. I did get a little bit done, though, and I plan on getting more done tomorrow before putting it down for a week.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Until next time!
