Stitch from Stash and 2 Disney Finishes

I want to start this blog with a huge thank you for all the kind comments that you sent me after my last blog post.   It is so nice to hear that I have such wonderful online friends!  I have been feeling a little better about myself but not up to my usual happy self.  If you are just reading this, then scroll down a blog post and you can see what I am referring too.
LOOK!!!  I did get my sewing machine back!!!  The first thing that I had to do was hem my husbands pants!  He is going to Vegas this weekend with about 10 guys this weekend and his pants are too long.

My machine is working great however, when I tried to load the thread with the automatic threader, this is what I found...a pile of parts.  Seems it broke on the way to me. I will have to manual thread my machine now instead of using the automatic threader.
February stitch from stash:
We were given a "FREE" weekend to shop because of the Nashville cross stitch convention. We could spend $100 and it NOT count against our challenge    I decided to take advantage of this so I bought:

Cross Stitch Collections Magazine - $16.00

I bought the magazine for this chart - Cinderella's Castle

Mill Hill Kit - Pet Shop  $4.50

Mill Hill Tea Kit - $4.50
I had a Gift Card from my local LNS for $20 so the Mill Hills were a total of $9.00 after the GC.

New Bag for the extra DMC threads from my kits $2.00
So, I spent $28 on my free weekend to shop where I had a $100 budget.
Stitch from Stash results -  $0.00 spent for the Challenge month.   As of right now, I have $50.00 in accrued stash money for my cross stitch retreat this summer!!!
New Disney Finishes::   Ursula and Pumba!!  Aren't they cute???

Hopefully, I will have a Sistine Chapel update this weekend!

Awesome finishes!! Hey, when you finish the MH tea kit, I want to trade you for it! I'm so sorry about your sewing machine!

I love the Disney ornies especially on the sparkly fabric.
I bought that issue of Cross Stitch Collection for Cinderalla's castle too! Hope your machine works okay.

Glad you got your machine back but I hope you can get the threader put back together. I need to get mine out and do some sewing/finishing.

Great job on staying in budget for the SFS Challenge! I spent $0 even during the free weekend :)

HI Vickie -

You are making great progress on all the Disney characters. Look forward to your positive comments coming back. Don't let anyone or anything hold you back.

$16 for the magazine! sheesh its only about £5 here, plus shipping to you from here would probably cost about £3 or something! my maths makes that about $11 at most...
lemme know if you would like me to pick it up and ship it for ya? love your finishes x
