Hallo dear friends and followers,

I am VERY proud of me, the last month of Stitch From Stash is over and I managed to stay within my budget perfectly!

I did not manage to have a finish this month, but it was time to do some stash shopping, as I would lose it if I did not spend it. Losing stitching budget? - No way!!

So I did a little shopping on the internet:

I have been after this wonderful chart and the accessory pack for a long time, but always was concerned about the price. As there was enough budget left, I finally bought it! It is Beautiful Finishing 14 "Autumn Box" by The Victoria Sampler.

As Christmas will be here before we know it, I also stashed up on Christmas-themed goodies:

Both kits are from Dimensions. The kitten seems to be discontinued and I managed to get my kit at nearly 50% off, which fitted my budget perfectly.

I hope you are all having a sunny and stitchy weekend!


IHSW June 2015

Hello dear friends and followers,

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend, some of you maybe enjoying IHSW, just as I did. I am one day late posting what I was working on, but I have a good excuse: Yesterday DH and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary! We went out for dinner and had a good glass of wine.

Here is where I started on Friday afternoon:

Despite taking (and passing with the marks "excellent"!) a saxophone exam I had been practicing for the last few weeks on Saturday, I managed to get some stitching done and here you can see where I left it on Sunday evening:

This also is my current Stitch from Stash piece, which I hope to finish in early July. Watch this space for a picture of the finished piece! :-)
Sorry the pictures are a bit dark, but we are not having too much sunshine at the moment, I hope that summer will be back soon again.

A lovely week to all of you!
