The making, baking and boxing has taken the majority of my time this past month, so there is very little stitching to show. Fortunately, when I don't stitch, I don't think of stashing; however, I was in and out of craft stores all month and the temptation was strong (especially in Jo-Ann's Fabric as they had DMC on sale for 3/$.99). Because I was so close to a zero spend year, I didn't give in and can give my final Stitch from Stash report as:
Carried over: $300
November Budget: $25 + $50 exception
Available: $325 + exception
I had no new starts from stash, but did do a little bit of stitching on:
|Lizzie*Kate's Holly and Hearts Sampler|
|Shepherd's Bush's He Tends|
So that is it! I made it an entire year and didn't spend anything on new stash. Of course, it does highlight just how large my stash really is and explains my signing up for 2015's. There is a ten day gap between the end of 2014's and the start of 2015's and I will use that to buy the floss I need to finish kitting up my HAEDs but I don't anticipate that next year's spending will be very different from this year's.
If you are interested in signing up for Stitch from Stash 2015A, Mel has opened up sign-ups until December 21st or until 120 people join. There were 69 participants last I looked so don't wait too long if you're interested.
