Stitching Blogger's Question, as suggested by Carol:

Do you collect charts by one particular designer, yet have never stitched anything by that designer? If so, which designer and why do you collect the charts but have not yet stitched any of them?

I really collect far too many charts - but isn't that half the fun? And my taste keeps changing to include more and more designers, especially as I see WIP's and finishes posted on message boards and blogs.

I do have several Drawn Thread charts and have yet to stitch one, but of course I have great intentions to. I love the delicate patterns and intricate work on her designs.

I am also in possession of several of the smaller Shepherd's Bush designs, and have never started one of those either. Luckily for my wallet, I have managed to stay away from their kits.

And I am the proud owner of a Chatelaine kit, which is still waiting of me to start - once I get some of my must-do stitching out of the way. Its looking like summer may be a good time to start this one.

The main designer I have collected would be Teresa Wentzler's, and I think I actually have all of the ones I want, since I also have her 3 Best-Of books. I have completed I think 8 of her designs and there are so many more that I want to do ~ 12 Days of Christmas, Byzantine ornaments, Day and Night, 4 Season Faeries.....I could go on for a while!
