Stitch from Stash # 2 - Update and Finish!!

Hi everyone!  

I'm back with my second Stitch from Stash update.  Here's my report since my last SFS post...

First, a finish!!

I finally finished the Dimensions Heart and Soul kit that I started as one of my crazy January projects in 2012!! : )  WOO HOO!  I am SO excited to have this one done!


I'm not sure what I'll work on next, but I'm leaning toward finishing the Lizzie Kate "Promise Me" that I have started.  It's 28 ct over 1, but I've had a nice break working on this 14 ct project, so I think it will be a good change.

Second, my spending report...

I bought something!  Michaels had a 25 cent bin of leftover Christmas goodies and this sweet Mary Englebreit ornament was in there.  I think I'll switch out the fabric and make it for Christmas. :)


Stash to Spend Total:  $0.25

I didn't spend anything on the free weekend.  More because I bought some stamping supplies instead, so my balance forward is $49.75.  YAY!!  I'm going to be visiting Cecilia's Sampler in Branson later this year, so I'd like to have a nice chunk saved up so I don't have to use my free month of overspending.  :)

And lastly, a sweet blog win from Maggee !


Now for this month's wish list.  I figure if I have them all written down it will make it easier when I finally go shopping for new stash.  Hopefully I'll have a LOT more finishes before then, though!!


18 ct - 14 x 18
For HAED Ornament
Larger size for Mini Christmas Mailbox
I want to get some of this Magic Guide fabric to stitch my HAED Mini Christmas Mailbox on.  Of course, I need to finish my Little Drummer Boy stocking first, so it might be awhile.  And I might change my mind and get the 25 count and stitch it tent stitch instead.  Decisions, decisions!

Love this!!!
Lizzie Kate

So Sweet!

I have the free chart, but I'd love to have them kit it up!

I saw this on someone's blog...  we used to live in a little cabin in the woods and had deer on our property, so I really like this one!!  ETA - Maggee is sending this to me from her stash!  THANK YOU, Maggee!!! : )



That's it for me this time!  I'll try to drop in again at the end of the month.  Maybe I'll even have another finish!!

TTFN!

Such a sweet finish. And congratulations on doing so well on the SFS challenge.
Great wish list. That reminds me of the fact that I have Cabin in the Woods in my stash and could start a new Bent Creek project. Why not, lol.
