Hello dear friends and followers,

it's time to post how I did with the Stitch from Stash challenge this month.

Unfortunately I have not succeeded in finishing one of my projects to earn me some extra budget, but I did not spend a lot anyway, so all is well. :-) The only thing I bought was some stranded cotton for a SFS project, which I hope to be able to show you soon.

I had one small finish that does not count as SFS, as the chart was younger than 6 month when I started it, but I could not resist stitching this little cutie. I found the fabric and all the threads in my stash, so it did not cost me any budget The chart came from Cross Stitcher, to which I have a subscription.

Isn't this a cute vintage pincushion?

Perfect backing fabric
My late grandmother was a seamstress and I inherited lots of pieces of vintage fabric from her, this one was simply perfect for finishing the small pincushion off.

I hope you all are enjoying spring (autumn for our Australian friends) and find some time for a little extra stitching.

Greetings from Austria,


  1. Lovely stitching Silvia , enjoy your Spring.

  2. Cute little finish Silvia.
    It's starting to cool down here now, love the crisp mornings. I'm so looking forward to Winter.

  3. You have a very healthy SFS budget and a very cute little finish. Well done! :)

  4. Cute stitching!
    Well done on SFS!

  5. Well done on staying within budget.
    The pincushion is so sweet, are the tape measures to scale? LOL

  6. Silvia, I do love your little cushion!!! It is adorable.I could not have resisted it either. Congrats on keeping so well in budget-- I am failing miserably, but having a grand time while I am at it. :)

  7. So ein schönes Nadelkissen, das Design und der Stoff alles ein bisschen retro. Sieht toll aus. Schade, dass du damit keine virtuellen Euros verdienen konntest. Aber du hast ja noch ein Budget für diesen Monat.
