stitch from stash - September

Well...another month has gone by with almost no stitching...almost, but not quite. Yes this is a very small amount of stitches, but it is stitching none the less. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
This is a start from my stash - Morning Star from Blackbird Designs.
No money spent on stash this month.


Looking forward to seeing how everyone else did this month!

stitch from stash - August

Well...this will be short and (not so) sweet! No money spent on stash this month (yay!), but also no stitching done this month either (boo!)... and I mean none...zero...zilch...nada.
I don't know where August went, but it went by in a blur. I really hope that things slow down soon...this has just been too crazy.
Looking forward to seeing all the great stitching the rest of you are doing!

Stitching from Stash for July



Well...I did spend some money this month - $22.19 to be exact. I had borrowed a pattern from a friend and when I went to return it to her, I couldn't find it anywhere. You would understand if you knew what chaos my household has been in for the past year. Anyway, I decided to just order a new pattern for her, and I did...intending to send it to her. I'm thinking that a gift doesn't count toward stash money. But then, within an hour of sending in the order, I found the original pattern that I had misplaced! To say this is typical for me would be an understatement! So now I will just keep it for myself...hence the stash enhancement. At least I will finally get to stitch it...at some point!

This month I finished two pieces. The first is Bloom from Midsummer Night Designs. I had started this one last month from my stash. Sorry for the shadow on the bottom of the photo!


The second piece was a WIP that I can't remember when I started. It was about a third of the way done when I picked it back up this month. it is Summer Band Sampler from Little House Needleworks. The colors, especially the red, are so much more vibrant in person!


And finally, I started another piece from my stash. This is another design from Midsummer Night Designs, called A Sampler Stitcher. I think I'll work on the lettering next. I'm hoping to complete it during the next few weeks.


Hope everyone had a great month stitching from their stash. I look forward to seeing what you are all stitching!

Thanks for taking the time to visit!


It's TUSAL Time Again!


My little froggy doesn't look too happy, but he should be! There are actually quite a few little snippets in the bowl this month! You can see what I've been working on in my next post!

Thanks for visiting!

stitch from stash report for June




There was actually some stitching going on this month...yay! I got through another month without spending any money on stash too. I have so much here that it makes it a little bit easier. And I really try to avoid looking at any of the new goodies coming out all the time.

Anyway, I finished one of my WIPs...Shades of Autumn, designed by Jo-Anne Mason for Dinky-Dyes Designs and stitched with Dinky Dyes silks which came with the pattern. I love the colors in this piece and it was really fun to stitch. The fabric is much more yellow than it appears in this photo.


When I went to look for another design to start, I found this one from Midsummer Night Designs all kitted up and ready to go. It is called Bloom and is stitched with Anchor threads. I stitched a bit more on it last night after taking the photo, so I think this one may be finished soon.


I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone else did this month.

Thanks for taking the time to visit, and I hope you all have a great weekend!

It's TUSAL time



Here's Mr. Froggy with this month's orts. I managed to get some stitching done. Not as much as I would have liked, but I did have a finish (see my stitch from stash post for this month) so I am a happy stitcher! Have a great day!

A little late, as usual, but here is my TUSAL gathering for this month. I also added a couple of photos to my previous post if anyone wants to take a peek.



Thanks for taking the time to visit!

stitch from stash report for May

No money spent on stash this month!

And I actually did do some stitching. I finished up my piece on a round robin that we did with Friendly Stitchers this year - Halloween Horn Book Sampler from Plum Street Samplers.




 Thanks again to Sally, Gillie, DJ, Frances, Mouse, Ally and Niina for all your lovely stitching.

I also picked up two WIPs from my stash. I finished Gilded Cage  from Carriage House Samplings




 and am working on Shades of Autumn...a Dinky Dyes pattern.

When I find my camera, I will add some pictures to this post...it's been so long since I had anything to take a photo of!

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
