February Stitch from Stash

Month: February
Spent: $12.58 Balance: $ 23.22
Earned: $8.00

Good afternoon! Happy last day of February! :-)

 I mentioned in my last post that I was going to be back in a few days with my February stitcheries made up. Well, I was working on them on the 31st of January and my sewing machine died. :-( I finally got it back a few days ago and finished everything up on Thursday night. :-) 

This month did not go as I had planned. :-) But, that is okay. :-) I had originally planned to start my tea tray project earlier in the month, but as I was looking for some of the threads I found a few projects that I felt like I needed to finish first. :-)

I decided to finish Party Cakes by Country Cottage Needleworks, that I started last year on my birthday. I finished it on Valentines day, so two days after my birthday. :-) I am very happy with it, and I am trying to decide how to finish it. It will eventually be in my dining room. Very excited to have this finished. 

I have made a small start on my tea tray project. My hubby is getting me the tray. Very excited about that! I also got a lovely H needle minder and some cross stitch magazines. :-) My next big project is going to be the Patisserie stitchery from the latest Cross stitch and Needlework magazine. :-)

I follow a cross stitcher on instagram, that is always making the loveliest covers for her q snaps and matching needle minders. So, I thought that I would have a go at it. I found a tutorial on Pinterest and used some fabric from my stash. I will make a few changes the next time I make one, but overall I am very pleased with it! 

I am adding a few pictures of my newest February stitcheries and a couple of older ones. I used some of the tips that Carol of Stitching Dreams, shared recently. Wow! What a difference that made! If you haven't read that post, then head on over! Thank you so much Carol! She is the sweetest! :-)

Well the sun is shining (rare! ), and I am going to take advantage of it! :-) I hope that this finds you all well and enjoying some stitching time! 

Happy stitching!
Love, Heather
