Stitch from Stash 2015 – April Check-In

It’s that time again!

Stitch from Stash 2015A

Month: April
Spent: $30.29
Earned: Not tracking

This month I spent $30.29, which is above the monthly limit, but I believe I am okay because I had $57.77 unspent from January-March. All told, I am doing well. I’ve spent $47.52 on cross stitch supplies so far this year, which includes this month’s purchases of floss (the the baby sampler) and a couple of kits from AliExpress (more reviews?).

I am up to approximately $144 on all craft supplies for the year, plus around $50 spent on Perler beads for the little man. He has become somewhat obsessed with them, and has actually made some pretty cool creations (most influenced by Minecraft…).

CreativFestival_2014LogoWhich brings us to tomorrow… I’ll be heading over to the spring Creativ Festival and I know I will be spending a fair little bit of money. I vendor that I really like, Quilt-a-Bag, will be there and I will likely pick up a couple of kits. I’ve also got a small list of chainmaille supplies I would like and I plan to look at the yarn too. (Would you believe that I haven’t bought any yarn this year?!)

For those of you taking part in Stitch from Stash, I hope your year is going well too!

    If the baby samplers are gifts I think the threads are exempt? Or maybe I just make up my own rules LOL
    Have a great time at the Festival.

    Shop well and make us all proud — I know you can! Have much fun knowing that we’ll all expect a full report. 🙂

    Congratulations staying within the SFS budget. Looking forward to seeing what you find at the festival.

  5. I hope you had fun at Creativ Festival. My daughter and I were going to go but when she had a change of plans, I decided to give it a miss this year. My bank account likely thanks me but I did miss getting to see what was new.
