October Stitch from Stash

It is time for the
Stitch from Stash
report for October!
This event is being hosted by
Mel from Epic Stitching

I have some sad news to report. I spent $9.00...this is my FIRST purchase for the year but since Mel so generously gave us a $50 bonus to spend through the end of the year it won't even count towards my budget! YAY ME!! I bought a chart and a piece of material from a lady who was selling them and don't have them in my possession yet so I can't show you...

So here is my report for:   October

Amount Spent:   $0

Year to date Amount Spent:   $0

Total Saved Based on this challenge:   $250

Bonus $50 Spent - $9 with $41 remaining for stock up purposes :)

New Starts from Stash:   No new starts for October

WIPs worked on:

Wizard of Oz
Designer Lesley Teare from the
July 2012 Cross Stitch Gold Magazine
(sorry for the terrible photo)

Shades of Blue
Northern Expressions Needlework

Hope you are still having a successful year at this challenge.
It is almost over for the year but it has been FUN.

See you at the end of  November
with another SFS Report!

My Sunday Stitchy Update...

Well it looks as though it has been a long time since I have been here - in my own space! I have been going through some stuff and have been sick, sick, sick literally everyday - not so much fun. Luckily I have a fantastic family that has been taking great care of me!! Today however I feel some what semi-normal and even had the energy to pick up the needle and make a few x's!

Today I picked up Shades of Blue because I thought it would be the easiest to start with since there are virtually no color changes and all I had to do was count - which I managed.

Anyways - here is my progress for today...

Progress as of 10/26/14

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching

My Sunday Stitchy Update

The weather has been TERRIBLE this week and we even had some snow flurries mixed with rain on Saturday. Never do I remember snow of any kind coming this early in the year and I am just hoping that this doesn't mean that we are going to have a long and bitter winter!

I went over to my LNS over the weekend and spent my gift certificate my son gave me for my birthday and got some black fabric to do the Northern Expressions Twisted pieces on. Two Amy Bruecken Halloween charts also managed to find their way into my bag :)

This week I didn't get a lot of stitching in but I did manage to squeeze in a few stitches on and around the scarecrow. Here is the how it looks now

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Not much going on around here...

I think that winter is unfortunately making an early appearance. I have even had to turn on the heat to warm up the house because the temps have been in the 40s overnight and for this time of the year - THAT IS CRAZY!

I started a new piece this week
Shades of Blue
Progress as of 09/14/14

I am enjoying this one and I think
I may continue stitching it this week. 

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!
