SFS Reporting
Well here I am at the end of the month of Sept and I can honestly say I'm not entirely sure what I spent. It's been an odd month. We were away for a week visiting my sister and brother in Vancouver (Canada) where I didn't spend any money on stitching but we spent a lot of money on comics, records and general travel expenses. It was a great trip however.

So here's my attempt to report... I may be off by a bit:
Spent: $45 (all on Facebook stash group... again)
Finished: $10 - Mill Hill Butterfly  (5x5" on perforated paper with 50% beads; so I did an approx. number)

So yes I'm still over... But I'm still within an attainable amount if I finish a couple other things I've got on the go. Including Take Time to Read. There is still hope.

Mill Hill Butterfly Finish
Well it seemed like it took forever (but I always forget how much extra time is needed on these because of the beads) but I have completed the Mill Hill Butterfly. I just adore it. It's so shiny with the beads, symmetrical and yet not (because of flowers) and was a dream to stitch up with all it's fun color changes.
I've done quite a few Mill Hills over the years but I think this is my favourite from the 5x5" designs.
From the kit, done on 14ct perforated paper with DMC threads and Mill Hill beads:
