Stitch from Stash update #8

Good afternoon! I am just squeaking in for this month. To be honest, I lost track of time. :-)

Not a whole lot of stitching this month. I made a tiny bit of progress on my August Poppies and dug into my kitted up projects and made a small start on Pumpkin Patch Inn by Little House Needleworks. I love autumn and autumn stitching is my favorite. :-)

Not a lot going on around here. Just enjoying the last few days of summer, and our youngest celebrated his 10th birthday.

I did really well this month. I didn't buy anything. Yeah me!  I was very tempted, especially with the bonus, but I started going through my stash and that helped me to not spend anything. :-)

So, onto the details. I had $24.75 carryover and with this month's budget of $ 25.00. That gives me $49.75 to carryover. :-)

I hope to have more time to stitch this next month. :-)

Happy stitching!
Love, Heather

Love the Cottage Garden Samplings series!

Can you believe how quickly August flew by, Heather--hopefully, the winter months will go even quicker : ) I just love that beach WIP you are making. The borders in that series are so interesting and different.

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend--hope it includes some stitching time!

You are making great progress and I admire your buyers resistance. With the St Charles needlework market I enhanced Stash

Barb said...

Great WIPS! You are doing so well even with the new market designs!

I just don't know where the year is going. It hardly seems like 5 minutes since the beginning of August!

Well done for not spending. I think you're doing really well. It's been a good thing to do for many of us I think and I want to try and carry on next year.

Lovely progress and love your new start.

Have a great long weekend.

Lovely stitching.

Beautiful stitching, well done on SFS this month.
Love the new header as your blog downloaded, very nice!

Very nice stitching last month. And great success on the SFS challenge. What you were doing is my trick as well. Whenever I feel like buying something new I browse through my charts and magazines and then I'm cured, lol.

Thanks for your kind comment this morning! Wish I had time to pull out my stitching supplies and work on a project...too much on my plate right now! :)

Hi Heather,
I recognize your Atlantic Ocean shells positioned on your linen. I've loved sand-smoothed shells since childhood. What a pretty blue you are using for the waves and lettering.

I, too, have done little to no stitching. I miss it, so.

But the cabled cardigan on my knitting needles has seen some action. September's cooler weather has something to do with it, I'm sure, as well as the doctor's waiting room.
