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!

  4. Well done on your SFS challenge. And I know exactly what you are talking about. This morning I wamted to finish a heart and in order to find the right fabric and ribbon for it I pulled out all my finishing supplies and found a ribbon that I wanted to use. I started sewing everything together and when I wanted to use the ribbon, it had disappeared. After 20 minutes searching I just took a different ribbon. And when it was attached, I found the original one, lol. So you see, you are not the only one, lol.
    Two wonderful finishes and a great new start for you.
