I caved...

I was determined to use this challenge to finish my SL wips, but then I pulled out the catalog and all its supplements.
 Just for fun you see...
But when I came across Sarah, I was smitten. 
Then I read her story and I was even more taken.
 All those gorgeous flowers. 
That fanciful and somewhat meandering border. 
Those crazy broom sellers. 
That was it, I caved and ordered her last night.
 About midnight.
Sarah Willson 1837

My resistance was low...

I'm so glad you ordered Sarah, I stitched her several years ago and she is one of my all time favorites!

Or eleven charts. Yes, that's what I ordered this morning thanks to Jennifer H for causing me to make a better listing of my SL charts. I found I was missing a few - I must have forgot to mark it down that I gave it away to someone and then there was the new AW 1662 that I just had to have. :-)

Resistance is futile.

LOL, you are so weak but so totally human! Seeing the picture I can understand why you needed to have this one.

Hi Annie! Loved your post...why do we kid ourselves into believing we'll just work on our existing projects?! Our new motto should be "never deprive yourself of Scarlet Letter designs!"
"Sarah Willson" is beautiful! I started her about a year ago...made some changed as I stitched and then didn't love the changes. But she's on my list and I plan to get back to her sometime this year. Enjoy her...I'm looking forward to your progress!
