Stitch from Stash January Report

I am so happy that I have joined this Stitch from Stash group. I really do need this...I don't even know what all I have...and so I keep buying , not only more new stuff, but more of what I already have! So, without further ado...

In January, I spent nothing on stash! Not a penny...nada..zip...zero. I do (or did) belong to two fabric of the month clubs, but one of them has been discontinued, and I haven't received anything this month from the other...but they are exempt anyway. I am not saying that this is easy. I have seen several designs that I really really want to add to my stash...but I think I will just start a new wishlist so that I don't forget about them...maybe I can talk someone into buying me a groundhog's day gift????

I had two new starts from my stash...both small designs to be sent off for a block exchange. You can see one of them here, and this is the other, a square from Prairie Schooler's Nordic Holiday. 


And I started one new project, Shades of Autumn from Dinky Dyes:


I also finished a round robin here and stitched on two of my UFO/WIPs...Abigail Gould Sampler from The Scarlet Letter


and The Gilded Cage from Carriage House Samplings.

 
 

On to February!

I must apologize for the poor photos...no time to iron first, and I am having a really hard time figuring out how to crop my photos in Windows 8.1. Must practice on that. I am not very tech savvy!

Thanks for taking the time to visit!

  2. Some lovely stitching!

    I think the Stitch from Stash challenge will get harder as the year goes on, but congrats on not spending anything in January!

  8. Lovely WIPs!
    I hate my Windows 8.1 on my new laptop... detest it in fact. It runs stupid apps in the background I can't stop and all kinds of weird stuff. So I feel your pain. ;)

  11. SFS is a wonderful idea. I could do this but I barely have any fabric in my stash. I could SFS for threads and patterns for sure.

    Your January stitching is wonderful. Keep up the great work!

  21. I agree with you, Lynda--there are so, so many great things waiting in our stash! It is nice you're getting some of them stitched up--everything looks great!

  22. Well done! Your WIPs looks great. See you have plenty to keep you going and out of trouble! Hate the photo gallery full stop in Windows 8. Have downloaded Picasa again to this computer.

  25. Hi Lynda! I'm visiting from the Grow Your Blog Party. I love cross-stitching too but at the moment I'm only making jewellery. You have a great blog here. Happy stitching. Ana

  26. Great job with your Stitch from Stash budget this month! Your stitching is beautiful!

  27. You did it, Lynda! Not a single $ spent and you stitched from stash only, that's a success. I have a wish list where I store all the new patterns that I'd love to buy but after a while I weed through it and the urge for this or that pattern has completely vanished. And I often go through my stash and find patterns that I had completely forgotten about and that I want to start immediately. That's a bit like buying new stash, lol.
    Good luck with February.
