stitch from stash

Month: March
Spent: $26.76
Earned: $24.00

It's hard to believe that another month is over, but so glad that spring is here! 

I did spend a little bit on charts this month...a lovely new design from iStitch and an older stocking design from Blackbird Designs left over from a retreat that I just had to have ( a mermaid and a lighthouse...two of my faves). I also needed some needles and a hoop and a bit of thread.

Here are some pics of three  pieces that I finished from my stash this month. I've also stitched a bit on some newer things, but they haven't been in the stash long enough (although the fabric and threads have been!)

This first one is Joyful Summer from Country Cottage Needleworks. I started this when waiting in the hospital for my grandson to be born, summer of 2008. For some reason I put it down and finally picked it back up this year to finish. I love the colors in this piece. I used beads instead of French knots where they were called for.


This is another of the mittens from Crossed-Eyed Cricket. It is called Promise of Spring.


And this last is one of the scripture series from Little House Needleworks, called Gentleness. I was off on the centering of this one, so the finishing will be a bit of a challenge! I love that the threads are included with these.


I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone else has done this month!
