Stitch From Stash 2014 - February

As we are coming towards the end of the month it is time for my monthly Stitch from Stash post, hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching!

So, did I manage to stick to the $25 budget? YES!

I spent nil, nada, zilch, nothing! Was it easy? No. There have been so many things that have caught my eye this month, and then when we got the email about the splurge weekend...well...I immediately went to drool at so many pretty things, but I restrained. I'm still not sure how I managed that but I did!

I did get some stash though, thanks to my dear other half for Valentines day I got three new Heaven and Earth charts (hooray for sales)

As for stitching I have been working away on some WIPs and completed a few smalls, one for the Small SAL, another for an exchange and also a couple of finishes on my Crazy January Challenge starts, oh, and a scarf too!

So, it's math time...

  • February Budget = $25.00
  • Spent in February = £0.00
  • Remainder for the Month = $25.00
  • Yearly Total Saved = $33.50
I shall update my sidebar tracker accordingly.

Not too bad I would say! Although I don't think I will do as well next month, some of those patterns I have been drooling over are shouting pretty loud!

  1. You lucky girl! I really want the Aimee Stewart, but am up to my ears in deadline pieces so really cannot justify getting it. The owl is very cute too, but I don't really do the cat thing.

  2. Congrats on the restraint. I succumbed to the new Redwood Manor Quaker and its companions. Enjoy your new HAEDs.


  3. You did great! Your finishes are cute!

  4. Well done on your resistance! And those are some beautiful chart! I bet your are very happy.

  5. Good job on your SFS spending! I'll look forward to seeing if you end up splurging next month. : )
