May - Stitch From Stash Update

Wow delay in posting for May SFS, I know it's terrible. However, I had a crazy bad sinus infection thing that took me right out. From work, home and online as I had headaches that were made 10 times worse by any light. However here I am at the end some antibiotics with only a bit of a cough left so back to business it is! 

So what did I do in May for Stitch From Stash? Well... I bought stuff... cause you know I'm awful. 
I spent $22.56 on patterns from eBay including this gorgeous kit below that I just adore from Sweetheart Tree! 

 Today I spent 3 hours reorganzing some stash to try and "fit in" more items. Looking through it all I purged some more items which is always nice and re-organized so that my drawers will fit more items. Not that I "need" anymore stash but if I can be more economical with my space then why not! (too bad I can't do that with my pocketbook better!)

As I was sick there was no stitching on Dragons or Halloween sampler as they are both on smaller counts. However I did stitch up and finish one of the new Mill Hill Bead kits that is just adorable. It's called "princess carriage" done with the supplied items from the kit which include perforated 14ct paper, DMC floss & gorgeous Mill Hill Beads. I'm quite happy with how it turned out and will finish it with a sticky-back felt and a magnet! Here's some pics.

That's all I've got for right now. I know not a very exciting post. But my priority for the last couple weeks has been just staying alive (lol). I am going to get in some Dragons stitching tonight while the DH is out at the movies. Probably watch some Doctor Who as well, stoked to get back into Dragons.

Happy stitching!

So glad that you're feeling better Mel!!! Love the Cinderella carriage, very cute; can't wait to see it as a magnet ;)

I'm sorry. I had chronic sinus infections has a teenager until a septoplasty corrected my deviated septum. I'm on the tail end of a nasty cold myself. I totally understand why you would not want to stitch on fine count.

Glad you're feeling better. There has been a lot of nasty stuff going around this spring. The carriage is too cute and really pops on that dark blue.

Very pleased to read that you're feeling better Mel. I'm dreading going through my stash before moving day, I don't want to face it! :P
Best wishes and happy stitching to you.
