Sitch from Stash – July Check-In

It’s Stitch from Stash check-in time again!

Stitch from Stash 2014 buttonWhen I signed up for this challenge, I really hoped that I would be able to hold off on all spending for the majority of the year. But, that didn’t happen. My will power is not particularly strong, and a good sale will easily convince me that I need something new. At the same time, though, I am being much more careful about how much I spend, and I am careful to think about whether I really need something or if I just want it.

So, what did I buy this month? Fabric to replace the aida in a kit, a pdf copy of the Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue (a real need!), the latest Cross Stitch and Needlework, and something for my upcoming giveaway (which doesn’t count). That brings my total for this month to


Which, yes, is over the $25/month budget, but I do have enough banked to cover the overage. Thank goodness!

Everything I worked on this month was from my stash, with the exception of a gift (which I actually purchased last month). The project I put the most work into this month was Mirabilia’s Lily of the Valley Fairy.
