Last year, when I participated in this, I think I only spent less than $5 the entire year. This year, well, things are going a little differently. This month, I spent money on the Just Cross Stitch Halloween book, and a few prim patterns that I got on Etsy. For some reason, I have an urge to stitch Halloween designs this year. I don't really even like Halloween! We'll see how that goes!
I haven't been stitching much this past month either. We have had really hot days (and nights) and I have just been curling up with a book most nights.
I did start working on a new piece for our next round robin round with Friendly Stitchers though. I started it this past weekend...I have decided on a design from Blue Ribbon Designs, so there are lots of borders for me to stitch to get this one ready. I love the design though, and I think it will be fun for everyone in the group to stitch on. I should be done with the borders this weekend, so I'll post a picture then.
We're actually supposed to get some real rain this weekend...we haven't had any all summer, and everything is so dry. The wildfires have been awful. We could even smell the smoke down here in the city and the air was very dense. I feel so bad for all the people who have lost their homes this summer.
So hopefully, there will be some solid stitching time in my future! And some relief for the firefighters too.
Looking forward to seeing how everyone did this month!
