January Update - Stitch from Stash
I am seriously starting to think that maybe I have a shopping addiction... as someone with an addictive personality (hence why I love crafting so much) I am always on the watch to make sure I'm not being silly about stupid crap but this shopping this is just too hard. LOL.
So how'd I really do with a $25 budget?
Okay... I stuck to eBay almost all month, where I could feel like I was buying stuff even if I lost the bid. Pathetic I know.
I am still dying to buy the new Ink Circles Turret pattern, which means that at least I know I really want it.
So I spent $14.24 (US) in total and will be getting 4 small charts with mermaids, two Lizzie Kate kits and a little bead and button Mill Hill kit. Not too shabby at all!
But definitely February will need to include Ink Circles new pattern Turretts and threads and fabric for it!!
Coming up is the Nashville Market and there will be a pre-determined amount to spend that weekend with any store. Many stores offer discounts if you order before or on the weekend. I'm watching my two favourite store that are itty bitty and going to the market for what awesome new things they find there.
Ladies from SFS - So many of you hit $0.00 or less than $5 in the budget this month. I'm sooo impressed! An email will be coming around to everyone by the weekend with fun stats, tips & tricks; as well as the important winners of stash stuff!!
I do have the first couple of bands on Counting Bats by Just Nan stitched up already. But no pics as I didn't have a chance to take it off the scroll rods. So next time for sure!
