March Stitch from Stash

It's been a pretty quiet month.  I was VERY good!  I spent Friday, March 21, wandering through downtown St Charles with a friend.  We had a beautiful day & it was so nice out that we even had lunch on the patio at the winery.  I went to both the yarn store & the cross stitch shop & DID NOT SPEND A PENNY!!  I did, however, spend money in the spice store, the English shoppe, and a couple of others.  I haven't really even done a lot of stitching this month, although I am a few stitches away from finishing an Easter bread cloth for a friend!

February's Stitch from Stash

Well, it's that time again.  I haven't gotten much stitching done this month.  Between work, crochet orders, & not feeling well, it just hasn't been in the cards.  In our Stitch From Stash challenge, we are allowed to spend $25 a month for 11 months out of the year.  My personal goal is 12 months and get 10 ufos finished.

 Laurel's Stitchery, one of my favorite shops, had a sale on Kreinik this month and I needed several spools for the UFO I'm working on.  Fright Night Friends takes LOTS of Kreinik, especially since I've decided to do the lettering in purple braid.  So, I spent a total of $15.21 on spools of Kreinik and now I have enough to finish it!  I hope.

Update on UFO goal

Today, I finished my 2nd UFO for this year.  It is version 2 of Mary's Sampler by Plum Street Samplers.  I really enjoyed this piece, both versions.  I hope she does another one like it soon!


My next UFO will be Fright Night Friends by Stoney Creek.
