Stitch from Stash #3 - March Madness

Hi everyone!

It's time for another Stitch from Stash report!   Can you believe it is March already??  One fourth of the year is almost gone!

Let's see... where shall we start?

Progress...

 

Here's Bunny Baby in all her wrinkled adorableness.  She didn't get much done on her because I just HAD to stitch the chart that my Secret Stitching Angel sent me last month!

A Finish...

Lizzie Kate To Do List

Here it is!  It's framed and hanging above my desk.  I changed the floss colors to what I had on hand and I just love it.  They are such good reminders for me right now!

 A Stash Slip...



Of course, being as I had to make a trip to the LNS for the frame up there, and being as the LNS is over an hour away so I had to make it worthwhile, and being as I am LONGING for spring and I don't have a thing in my stash that is springy except Bunny Baby...  I let myself pick up this sweet LK Spring String that's been on my wish list along with 3 or 4 colors of floss to go with what I already had here.  I picked up a tiny piece of fabric, too, then got home and realized that it was too light for the white to show up.  I haven't decided if I'll order some from 123 Stitch or if I'll change the bunny color... we'll see!

So here's my March report...

Previous Total:  $0.25

March Expenditures:
Joann's: $2.86  
LNS: $16.00

Total spent through March:  $19.11
Bankrolled...  $55.89


Some Stash Sweets...


I received some happy mail!!  One from Shirlee and one from Maggee.  Wasn't that SO sweet of them!  They were on my wish list and I'm planning to start them when I can bear to look at fall and winter designs again.   I'm usually ready by June or July!! : )

A Drawing!

Rather than posting a wish list for you to drool over today, I have three of the Sheep Virtues patterns to give away.  If you're interested please let me know in your comment, and if you would only like to be in the draw for a certain one, let me know.  I'm going to draw three names, cuz I want to spread the love as much as possible!!  I'll choose the winners whenever my next post happens to be!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Blessings!

Tricia

The bunny is adorable Tricia. Congrats on your Stitch from Stash. I'm not doing to well at it. I don't have any of the sheep series and would love any one of them.

Bunny Baby is so cute! Congrats on your great finish and what a good idea to get floss and fabric and a new chart while you were at the LNS anyway!

Please don't include me in the drawing, but good luck to everyone who enters! The winners will be thrilled!

Carol said...

Good for you for keeping your expenses down--you have a nice sum banked for your trip, Tricia :)

Love your newest finish and it would be great to be entered into the drawing for Joyfulness. I have the other two and have already stitched one. Those sheep are so adorable...

Simply Victoria said...

Your new finish looks great. I like the frame you chose. I'd love to enter your drawing. I don't have any of those and would be pleased with any but Gratitude is especially calling to me.

Aubs Ogrady said...

Hi :D I love your progress!
Can I please go into the draw for Gratitude? It is so cute <3 And the sheep would be cute and suitable in my house because I am from New Zealand LOL

Thank you, keep up with your great stitching!

Annette-California said...

Congrats on "To Do List" she looks great in her new frame! So your LNS is an hour away - of course you had to make it worthwhile:)))
Love what you selected. prefect for spring. I think changing the bunny color would be best. After all they do come in many colors -lol.
I would love to be included for your drawing. I don't have any of the sweet charts for your giveaway, so anyone of them would be great.
love Annette

Brigitte said...

Congrats on the finish. And such a nice little stitch from stash bunny. You are doing great on that callenge but a little stash therapy must be from time to time.

Bekca said...

Great new stash and how kind of your friends to send you charts from your wish list :) I would love to throw my name in the hat for the drawing for any of the lovely patterns. Thank you so much!
Best wishes.

I love your LK finish. Gorgeous! You did great on the LNS trip and keeping to your budget. Good for you. I love your new gifts too. Beautiful RAKs. I have the LHN patterns so there is no need to put me in the giveaway.

Beautiful progress and a lovely L*K finish. Great new stash too. Please do not include me in the draw, I have these in my stash already.

Great finish :)
Love bunny baby ;)
The chart giveaway is a lovely thought... I have seen these cute sheep on other blogs and often thought of trying to get the charts.... So I would love to enter your giveaway for any one of the charts ;)
Thank you!

Mel said...

Great new LK purchase.
Surprising I don't know any of the sheep to date and would love any of them. Great giveaway. :)

Anne said...

Wonderful finish Tricia and great job on the stitch from stash! I know it's hard to do!! Lovely treats from Shirlee and Maggee! You can put my name in the hat for one of the charts. Those sheep are adorable!

Thoeria said...

What gorgeous stitching!! And yum yum yummy stash! I agree with your logic about the visit to the LNS - it just makes sense :) I have the LK chart too....well...I"ve ordered it so just waiting for it to arrive :)If at allpossible I'd LOVE to have a chance to do the Love Sheep :)

Sally said...

Gorgeous stitching Tricia. Love the L*K! I have that in my stash and want to try and get it stitched this year.

Love the new stash! This month has been hard and I've been tempted too but I've managed to be good other than some DMC!

Lovely gifts from Shirlee and Maggee.
