Another Finish or Two!

Hi everyone!

Just dropping in to say "hi" and "yippee!"!  I have two more finishes!

First Lizzie*Kate's Spring String...

And then, Ellen Maurer Stroh's Bunny Baby

My new start is called Tend Faith, from the April 2011 Cross Country Stitching Magazine. I'm using some pretty hand-dyed aida that I bought on vacation. : )

{Stitch From Stash #4} April Update and Giveaway Winners

Hi everyone!

It's been a whole month since I posted, so this is going to be a long one!!
You might want to grab a cup of coffee... : )


I visited Faith's blog a few week's ago and saw that she had gotten this chart free from Stoney Creek and I ran right over and ordered one.  I had to pay shipping, but that doesn't count for our SFS total - Yippee!!  (I think it is free through the 21st, so you still have a few days to get it if you'd like to!)  I used threads from my stash, so it is in totally different colors from the original, but I like how it turned out.  This was my vacation stitch while DH and I were on vacation last week.  I thought it was a perfect choice to work on in the weeks leading up to Easter!


Bunny Baby is coming right along, but she's on hold at the moment until I finish my other vacation stitch...

 L*K Spring String... using my own colors.  


Well, I did spend some $$ this month!  We were able to stop at Cecilia's Samplers in Branson while we were on vacation.  I really was good, though!  I came away with 4 pieces of fabric for future projects, the LK Thankful String and the cute bunny needleminder that is living on one of the AMAZING bags that Annette made me...  I'll tell you about that in a minute!!

ANYWAY... Here's my report...

Balance Carried Over:  $55.89

Plus April's Budget:  $25.00

Cecilia's Samplers:  $50.00

Total Carried Forward:  $30.89

Total spent through April Report:  $69.11


Sweet Annette from the California Stitcher gifted me these AMAZING stitching bags, the matching needlebook and two Mary Englebreit ornaments.  I feel SOoooooooo blessed!!  I packed the bags up right away with all my projects for vacation.  They are SO cheery and I love the orange!!  You can see the smaller one a little better in the picture above. : )  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Annette!!!

All right, if you've stayed with me that long you deserve a prize!  Here are the three Sheep Virtue


Love - Anne
Gratitude - Mel
Joyfulness - Simply Victoria

Be sure to email me your addresses, ladies, so I can get these out to you!  I hope I can do some more giveaways and give some joy back to you all.  You are such an encouragement to me!!

Happy Stitching!
