My Sunday Stitchy Update

Hi everyone - hope you are all doing great!

This week I worked on 
Northern Expressions Needlework
Shades of Blue 
and I finished the second page of twelve.

I think I may put this piece away for the week and work on something else - just not sure what! When I get home tomorrow I will decide what to stitch on...

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update...

It has been a strange weather week here in Chicago - 70's on Monday but by the time the kids went trick or treat on Friday it was cold, in the 30's with snow flurries and hail. What a horrible time for them but there were still a few brave kids out there; my grandson Jacob included but they didn't stay out for long!

This week I have been working on Shades of Blue
and here is my progress...
Progress as of 11/02/14

I think I will probably continue with this piece for the new week because as I mentioned before it doesn't require lots of extra thought on my part.

It is time for the

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

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

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...

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
