Stitch from Stash – August 2015

Oh dear… It is time for the Stitch from Stash check-in… Stitch from Stash 2015 B

Actually, I did okay with regards to cross stitch stash.

Month: August 2015
Spent: $11.35
Earned: $0 (not tracking)

I bought four skeins of floss that I needed to stitch up some Just Nan designs that I have had hanging around for ages, and then I bought the 2013 New Colours pack for myself. (I’ve given away three or four, but I’ve never kept one for myself! I figured it was about time.)

Now, as for the rest of my craft spending… Well, it was a rough month. I picked up some supplies for machine embroidery (thread, patterns, and stabilizer), hand embroidery (linen, a hoop, and a heat transfer pen), sewing (thread), knitting (buttons for a vest), and jewellery making (beads and charms so my mom can make me a couple of things). I haven’t totalled it all up, but I know that it is bad. 🙁 There is always next month, right?

    I love the new color packs, I do keep them for myself, if I do not need a color I can use it for twisted cord and other things.
    New stash always makes one feel good.

    Blessings and happy stitchinbg.
