Stitch From Stash- July

Month:  July
Spent:  $64  
Earned:  $23
Budget:   $25+ $23 - $64 =  -16

I completely BLEW my budget this month!!!   I forgot that we were starting a new session and so I was BAD!!!  I went to Cecilia's Sampler in Branson, MO which is an amazing Cross stitch store.  I was very bad in that store....but more on that later!!!!

I did have  small finish that I cannot show until I mail it.  It is an exchange but I did finish it.

Here is Faery Tales!  I made it to the end of the first row and I had enough fabric at the end!!!!  I was worried to be honest.  Even though I measured and remeasured I was sill a little anxious.   I actually finished 2 pages of this project this month but I only gave myself credit for one.  If you take a look at the second picture, you can see the small section that is the last page of row 2. So, to be honest, I won't give myself credit until I stitch that column all the way down.  That should equal one page.

This giant and little boy has been nothing but confetti stitching.  I feel like I am going so slow!

My purchases this month:    I went to Barnes and Noble to purchase part 3 of the Dollhouse  design from Cross stitch Collections. I also purchased a Cloud Factory chart from Etsy.   Then while at Cecilia's I purchased the Just Cross stitch Ornament preview issue (shown) and Not shown is the Just Cross stitch Halloween issues and Ornament Issue. 

I really didn't find anything else because they were out of Mill Hill kits and nothing struck my "OMG I just have to stitch that!" until I wen to the checkout.  I saw this design being stitched up and I love houses so I asked about it.  It was a FREE chart!!!  It is from Handblessings but it did require 4 charms which I did purchase.   Isn't it cute???  You can find it here if you are interested in the details.  It looks like you need to contact your local LNS to get the patterns.  You can call Cecilia's to order the charm pack and patterns.   

That is my month!
