Stitch from Stash

This is going to be a very quick update.  I SPENT NOTHING LAST MONTH!!!  I'm so proud of myself.  I even won a chart in our challenge that I can't wait to stitch for myself.  It's a Wizard of Oz chart and absolutely adorable!   May will be different though.  I have 2 babies to make samplers for and have very specific ones in mind.  The fabric & most of the threads will come from stash but I'll have to purchase the charts.  Faith, a very dear friend whose blog Faithfully Stitching always inspires me, had a very good idea.  Since we are saving $25 a month by stitching from our stash, she is putting into a special account to use for Christmas.  I think I'm gong to do the same!  We'll have a nice little nest egg for Christmas presents, not a lot, but enough to do something special for the 3 of us.  Well, that's all for now.  Sorry this is so short, but we are in the process of moving & only have 2 days left.  If you want to check out all the other blogs in this challenge, click on the button on top or follow the link here:


  1. Congrats Berly! I can't say the same; I do get an auto-send from Laurel of the LHN Calendar Girls, and I did buy a few charts from her when Laura and I visited her shop. HOWEVER, I, too am stitching from stash! I didn't even realize that is what I have been doing! LOL


  2. Glad that I could be an inspiration to you and we can both save up our pennies together! I love the Wizard of Oz chart that you won and hope that you din't have to spend toooo much money next month!

    Good luck with the move :)

  3. Congrats on spending zero. Good luck with the move.

  4. Yea Berly!!!! You go girl, If I can do it for over a year, you can do it til Christmas. Best of Luck!
