That brings me to my Stitch From Stash update for June
Everyone was given a $50 bonus, on top of their budget $25 for the month (and of course carryover can still be used). So I went a bit crazy... And feel like I just want to keep buying still now. It's awful. But here's what I got in the end so far this month (I'm going to have to be careful in July now as I have no carryover at all!):
- $19.95 for Gigi & beads (I'll use DMC & fabric from stash)
- $42.00 on 9 patterns from eBay, including lots of Ink Circles patterns (show pics of 3 matching).
- $0.00 on two cross stitch books because of issues with ebay a seller sent me free 2 books by Joan Elliott including "Fairy Enchantment". Love how beautiful these books are and definitely worth even the retail price based on number of patterns inside.
From Just Nan, this piece is "Summer". A Whimzi design that I happen to have the Whimzi frame for that is quite cute (it has a cute little flower on the edge). Which means I will actually, eventually, finish this into something (lol).
Done on 32 count pale pink linen with DMC (2 DMC substituted as didn't have exact number available in stash and didn't want to pilfer from kitted up projects). The linen is not really showing up as pink as it actually is... so imagine it pinker?
This piece will be going up for sale on Etsy once framed and complete (this is my way of motivating myself to finish it, I hope!)
In Other News:
Dragons is coming along. I'll post when I'm at a halfway through the page point. Maybe even as early as the end of the month if I'm really hopeful.
Just Nan - Counting Bats is only 3 bands away from complete! It will be photoed and I'll update on it next week.
I also have a very exciting story to share with everyone but am going to wait to hear the "official" word on it. It is stitching related and quite flattering for me. But I'll delve more into it as soon as I can (maybe by next week).
