stitching from stash

Month: October
Spent: 46.83
Earned: 4.00

Hmmm...a pretty dismal report spending-wise. It went for everything - fabric, threads, patterns. I did finish a small mitten design from Cross Eyed Cricket, and have been stitching on a couple of samplers and round robins. So hopefully I will have more earned for next month.

Till then...I hope the rest of you are keeping to your budgets better than I am!

another late TUSAL

So...once again, I am a week late with my monthly ort collection. Froggy is getting a little bit tired of me! I did finally figure out that I can transfer photos from my phone to my computer at work though...I know, I'm pathetic when it comes to technology of any kind.
But here is Froggy, with this month's offerings...

See you soon...thanks for visiting!

The Enchanting Rose Mug Exchange

This was my first time participating in this wonderful exchange that Stephanie hosts on her blog, The Enchanting Rose. We could choose to send either a teacup or mug to our partner, along with other goodies if we wanted.

Here is the wonderful mug exchange package that I received from Julie in Texas. (there was also a book, but I forgot to put it in the photo) And I must admit that one box of those tasty biscuits was empty by the time the photo was taken as well!

My husband and I have been using the mugs nearly every day, and I know that I will be using the linens for our holiday table this Thanksgiving. And the lovely lacy basket will be the perfect resting place for some of my small stitched pillows.

Thanks again to Julie and Stephanie for such a wonderful exchange experience!
