My stitching mojo has also passed me by with a whoosh this summer. Fortunately, the lack of stitching mojo has had a positive impact on my stashing mojo making the challenge easy. Stitch from Stash is hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching and has a duel purpose - love your stash and save your cash!! Each month you get a $25 budget and sometimes, like this month, you can have a bit more. If you don't spend your regular budget amount, you can roll it over to next month so you could have a rather substantial amount for a splurge by the end of the year. If you can't wait that long, you do get a by month when you could go stash wild. For August, my spending report is:
Carry over: $175
August Budget: $ 25
August Purchases: $ 0
Balance Forward: $200
I had two starts from stash this month: Just Nan's Spring in the Air:
and Little House Needleworks' Red House in Winter
I did stitch a little on a WIP this month, but only a little.
This is Secret Victorian Garden by Chatelaine. My progress was those blue stitches around the backstitched motif with the heart. Not much progress, but each stitch in is one stitch closer to done.
