Stitch From Stash – July 2015 Check-In

I may have totally blown my craft budget out of the water this year with the purchase of an embroidery machine, but I’m still trying to stay on track with my cross stitch-related spending. That means, I’m joining in for the next round of Stitch from Stash.

Stitch from Stash 2015 BThere is nothing like starting off right:

Month: July 2015
Spent: $24.95
Earned: $0 (not tracking)

Yep, I totally blew my budget this month. Why? Well, to make a long story (and a long search) short, I finally bought a Christmas stocking kit for myself. There as a sale at Mary Maxim and I decided to take advantage of it.

It is Candy Cane Stocking, a kit from Dimensions. (Don’t worry! I haven’t finished it yet. That’s just a catalogue picture. I suppose that’s obvious since my name isn’t Alexander…) I figure it will be, oh, maybe 5 or 6 years before I get to it, but I’m happy that I now have a stocking finished, in progress, or waiting to be stitched for everyone.

Smalls SAL – I know I’ve been pretty quiet this summer, but that doesn’t mean I have forgotten about the Smalls SAL. July’s check in date is coming up soon–this Wednesday! I’ve stitched my small, and I hope you have too!
