January Stitch From Stash

Here it is
2015
and I have joined the Stitch From Stash again!!

This time there are a few fun twists where you can actually
earn stash money so that will make it pretty interesting. 

This event is being hosted by
Mel from Epic Stitching

So here is my report for:   January

Amount Spent:   $6

Year to date Amount Spent:   $6

Amount Earned:   $8 (page finish)

Ending Balance:   $27

WIPs worked on:

Shades of Blue.
This was my page finish.
I now have 3 pages of 12 completed!

New Starts from Stash:   
Snowman Tic Tac Toe
which I purchased this month.

Also purchased from Stoney Creek
which does not count towards my budget, 
chart is FREE you only pay for the shipping charges.

I am looking forward to seeing how
everyone is doing in their first month!

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening All...

Making it in right under the wire for Sunday!  Not much stitching this week but I did continue to work on my

Snowman Tic Tac Toe
progress as of  01/25/15

I still have the back stitching to finish on this piece and hope to get that done in the morning so I can move on to something else. 

I received a beautiful gift this week from a friend. The picture does not do the gift justice; it is stunning and made with the perfect shade of purple beads. 
I stitched this square for a quilt she was making for her granddaughter who was having surgery. Thank you again Christine; to you and your granddaughter!!

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Welcome and Happy New Year!

This year I decided that I am NOT joining a bunch of different groups and starting lots of new things. I have done that for the last couple of years and the only thing that did was add to my UFO / WIP pile and my stress level!  LOL I already have lots of pieces to finish (I hope) and LOTS more to add into the rotation.

I did rejoin the Stitch From Stash group though because I feel it made me really think about any purchases I wanted to make instead of just throwing it in my cart and hitting the BUY button!

Since this is my first post of 2015 I
must show you my new Ortament
This was made with my
orts from my 2014 stitching.

And this is what I have been working on so far this year...

Shades of Blue
Progress as of 01/11/15

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Just a quick update today -

I have been working on the Wizard of Oz piece; I really wanted to get it finished by Christmas but didn't even come close but I have made some good progress.

First I finished the first page.
Looks like a bunch of blobs!

But once you back stitch a page - 
viola' what a difference it makes!

Now I have started the second page
and will probably finish out the year with this one!

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