I am happy to report that has really allowed me to focus on what I have and what I really need how many seasonal series, etc. can one house support?. While I am finding lots of pretty things, I am now stopping and questioning even adding them to my wish list, never mind buying them. Mel at Epic Stitching is hosting and even though registration for official participation is closed, you can still play along. The button above should take you to all the rules although it is pretty easy - you get a monthly budget and you need to stick with it for 11 out of 12 months. There are occasional splurges allowed (we recently had Market weekend) and unused funds do roll over so you can save up for that big project. Since my last post:
Carry Over - $50.00
March Allowance - $25.00
Purchases - $0
Balance Forward - $75.00
I didn't have any new starts from stash, but I did replace a project in my rotation with one of my WIPs. Chatelaine's Serengeti was replaced by her Secret Victorian Garden.
Here is where it was when I pulled it out of the WIP box:
And here it is today:
|Secret Victorian Garden by Chatelaine. Stitched on 32-count Carol's Meadow evenweave from Silkweaver Fabrics with fibers and beads as kitted from European Cross Stitch|
Here is one of my favorite parts of this entire piece:
It isn't a very good photo, but I really love this blackwork section.
This will stay on the frame through today and tomorrow Elegant Doily will be put on the frame.
Before I forget, it's !!!! This is an easy SAL - sign up and stitch! Yes, that's it, stitch and then show us all what you accomplished. I love no stress SALs...
