August Stitch From Stash

Welcome!

It is time for the August Stitch from Stash post.



This challenge is hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching

I had a pretty bad stitchy month.  I moved 1,780 miles across country with my family, our three dogs and turtle. We packed up our belongings in a POD and then traveled across country by car.  Took three days and two nights but we safely arrived at our ultimate destination - Arizona! Then we had to wait about 10 more days for our things to arrive. They are finally here and now we have to unload it this weekend. Soooo I have had no motivation (or supplies) to stitch this month.  Hopefully after this weekend when things get unpacked and somewhat organized my motivation will be among the things I find!  

Here is my August report...





WIPs worked on:

NONE

New Starts from Stash:


Not much stitching...but
it is a few Xs for the month.

I did receive some great stash though!
A while back I won the monthly contest here
on SfS and my prize was some goodies from Mel!  

They arrived in the mail this week ;)
Lots of great goodies!  YAY

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