April Stitch From Stash

I know I posted these earlier but I did some shopping this month!!  I bought:

The Little Charts were $15.00 each so that is $30.  The big chart was $34 rounded up.  Which is a total of:
$64 with my $40.00 GC I got for my birthday which doesn't count towards my budget according to the rules...I spent $23.00.  $2.00 under my $25 budget!!!   Only spending $23 in stitching is great!!!

Finished a Page and Stitching Retreat

I finished a page on my Augusta the 13th hole!  I am not sure how much longer I will on this one since I pulled out a Disney Kit I want to start!  I need fabric for my kit since it came with Aida and there are lot of 1/2 and 1/4 stitches so I want to stitch it on an evenweave.  

Stitching Retreat:
I will be hosting a Thirty -One Stitching retreat on my Yahoo Group - Vickie's Totes and More   The retreat will be May 16-18 which is our Hermit Weekend.  I will be giving away stitching prizes and Thirty-One prizes!!!    I hope you can attend...please click my link to join and feel free to share this with other stitchers!  You don't have to purchase to win prizes!!!!  

Thirty-One Special!

I LOVE being a consultant!  I found myself staying home a lot and just keeping to myself. By joining Thirty-one, I am out and about meeting people.  I have already earned my joining fee back!!!!!  The month of May we will be Celebrating  Nurses an Teachers with this wonderful Icon with a cute quote!!!  If your are one of my overseas friends and would like to order a stitching bag, you can have it shipped to me and I will ship it to you!!!  

If you have a teacher or nurse you would like to celebrate please let me know!!!  I will be happy to help you celebrate....just leave me a comment and I will get back with you immediately!!!! 

UPdate on me!

I told you that my depression was really bad this winter and now my summer clothes don't fit!  I gave away all my clothes when I lost my weight last summer. Now, I am in a pickle because nothing fits!!!  I am back on my diet again.  Which is really hard because my darling husband is eating Hershey kisses as I type this post!  I love Hershey kisses but I want my pants to fit more!!! 

Still waiting to hear about my student loans so please remember this in your prayers or send good thoughts my way!!!

Disney Shopping and The Masters!!

WOW!!  Two-weeks since I updated my blog!  I have been busy!! First thing, please send positive thoughts to the universe or say a quick prayer because I applied to have 80% of my student loans forgiven because I work with special needs students!!!!  I won't know anything for 60 days!!!

 I have a small finish to show off...Isn't Bambi just the cutest?????  

I know I am involved in the Stitch from Stash but my Uncle gave me a GC for my birthday (which was in February) this past month.  I was in Hobby Lobby minding my own business when these 3 kits just jumped in my cart and begged to come home with me!!!!! So I couldn't deny them!! My GC was for $40 and all three kits with the HL discount totaled:  $23 so I am under budget since I used Birthday Money!!!

The Masters tournament was this weekend so I dug out my Augusta the 13th hole to work is nothing but trees and a tiny bit of sky!!

My new Thirty-One adventure has been keeping me busy.  DH asked me why I am doing this and my reason for him is that I enjoy meeting knew people and getting out of the house  My REAL why, which I am keeping secret from him, is because I want to surprise him with a $0.00 balance on my student loans!!!  If they are forgiven then I need have 200 - $200 parties!  Doing this, we will be completely out of debt...No Car payment or student Loan payments!!!! This is my goal!!!!

Would anyone be interested in an Online Stitching Retreat the weekend of May 16-18?  It would be held in my Thirty-One yahoo group.  There will be stitching prizes along with some Thirty-one product prizes.  This is the Stitchers Hermit weekend so we will all be stitching!  I will have HS graduation Saturday morning (8th year in a row to graduate and they keep making me come back!) but the rest of the weekend will be stitching and chatting!!!  

Let me know if are interested...invite a friend!  It will be fun!
