March Stitch From Stash Update

End of March already, where does the time go.

I got some good time last weekend into Dragons and am quite pleased to be just over halfway through the page I'm working on. Pics to come soon!

As for what I bought this month; a few things in some different areas.



I got a couple eBay patterns for nice and cheap. Including this one that I just love!

And more Ink Circles. The latest is Lunation (shown below). I got the chart and threads for this. I have a piece of fabric I think will be just perfect for it in my stash. I really need to stop buying Ink Circles and actually stitch some of them, lol. But I swear she reads my mind and creates patterns that are just perfect for me! It was pointed out to me by an Aussie that it was really nice to have two different views of the world and not just North America to stitch. I never would have thought of this and say that I love the attention put into this piece to make it internationally friendly.

So total spent on eBay items (there are about 10 new charts. I know smack me now) and Lunation is $46.11 this month. Thank goodness I have carry over from February!
I'm going to try and avoid eBay a little bit more this month (April). As sometimes I think I buy things on eBay because they are a "great deal" and not because I must have them in my stash. So time to start being picky on eBay the way I have been with new stuff.

Hope you're all doing well. I'm still working through the SFS March updates and newsletter for those in the group will be out by next weekend. I'll share some tips and links here on he blog next weekend for everyone following along as well.

Happy Stitching!

The dragon chart will be amazing to stitch and the Ink Circles design looks great! How nice to have the Australia view also.

Nice charts! I understand your obsession with Ink Circles. I have the same one with Mirabilias.

Nice charts. We all have our favorite designers or subjects that make us weak to temptation. Sometimes I rationalize that I am a collector :) At least, this SFS group is making me think more before buying.

Nice charts. The dragon one is very cute. Fortunately I never got into Ebay, but I did once get an amazing buy on Shepherd's Bush kits - don't think I have been back since (don't want to press my luck!)
