Stitch from Stash update #7

Good afternoon!  I hope you all are having a lovely Monday! We had huge thunderstorms roll through here in the middle of the night, so it's a little bit cooler today. 

Thanks for your lovely comments on my cottage post. I am in the process of responding to comments from my last couple of posts. 

July has been a very full month. My daughter had a lovely birthday, thank you for your kind birthday wishes for her. :-) We went to the beach for her birthday and to the Dogfish Head brewery for dinner. It was amazing! :-)

Not too long before we left the beach, hubby was body surfing and got taken off guard and slammed by the waves and ended up breaking his wrist and dislocating his elbow. :-(
Being the good daddy that he is, he didn't want it to interfere with her day, so he downplayed it and didn't go to urgent care until that night when we got home. :-)

Since moving to Delaware,I have truly fallen in love with the seashore! :-) If we lived closer to the beach,I am pretty sure that I would be there every day! :-)
When I was choosing my next project after finishing my August cottage, I decided to pick out a beach themed one. So, I started August's Poppy by Cottage Garden Samplings. I first saw it on Beth's blog and fell in love with it. It has been a fun stitch so far.
I was recently at the Strawberry Sampler and found an adorable beach themed stitching pouch, so I decided it needed to come home with me and hold my summer projects. :-)

Well, I had better get to my update. Today is Beatrix Potter's birthday so we are having a Beatrix Potter themed tea tonight, so I had better get busy. :-)

This month, I used all of my carryover. I spent $66.15 on a couple of patterns, a magazine, some DMC, some over dyed threads and my new pouch. I had $ 65.90 carryover and $25 for July, so that leaves me with 24.75 to carryover. 

Happy stitching!
Love, Heather

Cottages of the month are complete!

Warning: This will be a photo heavy post. :-) I finally finished all of the cottages. I am so happy!  I love them and look forward to displaying them each month. :-) I have had most of them done for awhile. I was only missing July, August and October. I finished August a few days ago and decided to put my big girl panties on and make them up. :-) I don't like the stretching process. :-)
I will save the rest of my chatter for my stitch from stash update, which I should have done soon. :-)
Without further ado.....
