Stitch from Stash update#1

Happy Monday!  I hope you all are off to a good start for the week. I am just popping in really quick to make my stitch from stash update. I have done really well this month. My total spent was $1.90 for DMC. :-) I have started an ornament completely from stash. I am making LHNs Gingerbread Tree. The frogs have been very active in my stitching. :-( So I haven't gotten very far. I hope to finish it this week. I haven't been able to stitch a whole lot because I am knitting my husband a scarf for his birthday, which is next Monday. I am still plugging along on my first Frosty Forest. Well, I had better get back to knitting on my husband's scarf. :-)
Happy stitching,
Love, Heather

Happy New Year! !!

I want to wish everyone a very happy, healthy and blessed new year. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and to comment. I want to welcome my new followers!
I hope everyone had a lovely time last night and that you are enjoying a nice day. We had a quiet (as quiet as a home with a jazzed up 9 yo can be! !) evening with lots of snacks and games. We celebrated the new year at 9pm so little man could get to bed!  :-)
Today we are enjoying a lazy day. I made a start on my Frosty Forest piece. I am stitching it on 32ct. LL Flagstone. My LNS didn't have Pearl Grey but this is very close. I plan on stitching and knitting the day away. My daughter wants to go to Joann's and Michaels, so I will join her to do that, but otherwise you will find me in my chair with a cuppa!  :-) My hubby requested a Jane Austen movie for tonight. (Yes, he is the greatest! He's a country boy from Oklahoma who loves Jane Austen!  He says real men love Jane Austen!  ) Anyway!  ;-)
I have decided to join the Stitch from Stash group this year. With having a house for sale still in Arizona and rent here, I need to be careful!  :-) I really like the rules that they have set up for this group. I think it will help me stay on track. The only patterns I plan on buying will be the Frosty Forest series and at least some of the Calendar Girls series. I definitely want February since that is my birthday month. But we will see how well that goes! Santa Pickle gave me a gift card to my LNS for Christmas, so that will help too.  :-)
I have made some plans of what I would like to stitch for the year, but we will see how that goes. ;-) I did pretty well with my goals for last year.
Well, daughter is ready to go, so I had best head out with her! 
Happy stitching!
Love, Heather
