Stitch from Stash February 2014

I told you I’d get around to spending money.

Total February purchases: $4.01.

This includes 3 skeins of floss which I thought I needed.  Until I found where they had gone.  One only took a day to turn up.  The other one took a little longer.  So the only remaining mystery is why I thought I had to buy 2 skeins of 761.  Just beat having to choose another color I suppose.  The rest of the money is for 3 packages of bobbins.  Because if I’m going to impulse shop at least I know I can use them.

And then there was splurging!!!

Splurge Weekend purchases: $42.62.

What a fun weekend.  I bought two magazines, two patterns and a piece of tropical orange fabric for a pattern I got for my birthday.

New starts for the month were two sprites, my piece for the Smalls SAL and what I think may be by first Teresa Wentzler piece “You were hatched”.


This is Mina, one of the Dork Stitch sprites.  The other one and the smalls piece are pictured in earlier posts.  If/when I make it farther than the corner border I’ll post a picture of the TW piece.

I was going to say I hadn’t worked on any WIPs this month.  Happily that’s not true.  I did finish Lizzie Kate’s Thankful String during IHSW.

Some time on my bigger pieces would be nice, but if next month only goes this well I’ll be happy.

Happy stitching World
