SFS January to April Updates

Hello Friends!

I've still been participating in the Stitch From Stash challenge even though I haven't been blogging about it. It's time to get you all up to date.

SFS challenge is to spend no more than $25 each month on stitching supplies/stash.  You may carry over unused amounts to the following month.  The challenge is hosted by Epic Stitching,

January Report

I had no new starts for this month.  I worked on and finished Mirabilia Stargazer.

I bought 4 skeins of DMC and 3 Bead Packs.

Total Spent:  $8.30

Carry Over to February:  $16.70

February Report

I started a PS ornament this month. Chart/Fabric/Threads were all from my stash.

Total Spent: $0

Carry Over to March:  $41.70

March Report

I started Mirabilia Bliss Fairy this month.  Chart was a RAK and fabric/threads were in my stash.

Total Spent:  $0

Carry Over to April:  $66.70

I  was also the lucky winner of this month's giveaway and I received a lovely chart from The Little Stitcher "The Lady and the Unicorn".  I love her newest design "Alice in Wonderland" and I was very tempted to purchase it but ultimately resisted (for now)!

April Report

I did no cross stitching this month.  Not one single stitch :(

Total Spent:  $0

Carry Over to May:  $91.70

Hopefully May's report will prove to be a bit more exciting!  I keep waiting for the "Stitching Bug" to come back and bite me!  Maybe you know where it's gone?

Thanks for visiting today!

The "Pillow Finishes" Gallery

Hello Friends!

It's time for the last part of my catch up posts.........the Pillow finishes! Conquering my fear of the sewing machine is something I am very proud of!

I have a few favorites here......"Beware of Cat", "Strawberries" and "Fright Night".  Let me know your favorite :)

Thanks for visiting today!  Happy Easter!

The "Ornament" Finishes Gallery

Hello Friends!

Today we get to re-visit my second favorite finishing style.....the Ornament.  I just love how they look hanging on my tree, they are quick and easy to stitch/finish and fun to exchange :)  Plus, Christmas is my favorite holiday and I love to stitch Christmas themes year round!  What's not to love?  Now I am sure I have finished more of these but this is all that remains of my pictures.

Thanks for visiting today!
