July SFS 2015-B report

Earned: $30.00
Spent: $3.35
Budget: $25.00
To be carried over to August: $ 51.65

Hello dear friends and followers,

time for my monthly report on Stitch From Stash. As I enjoyed a two week holiday at home, I was able to do a little more stitching than usually, which really boosted my budget.

Here is the finished HUG pillow that earned me $ 16.00:

I also finished a cover kit from a magazine, a lizzie*kate design called "My To Do List" and a Christmas design by Stoney Creek (has been a UFO for three years with about a third of it stitched and was finished only yesterday). I will show you pictures of these two finishes when I have finished them into a standup and a framed picture. So stay tuned for these two lovely projects :-)

Summer greetings from Austria,


A HOT finish

Hello dear friends and followers,

hello from a really HOT summer day here in Austria. With 35 °C there are only a few things that can be done properly: Swimming, taking a shower and of course some stitching in a shady place with lots of ice cold drinks.

I love summer weekends and was happy to get some stitching done, because now I can show you my latest finish:

It is HUG by Emily Peacock (as some of you already guessed) and has been my major Stitch From Stash project for the last three months. All that is left to do now is some sewing, but that will have to wait for a cooler day. Sorry, the quality of the picture is not too good, but it was taken by DH from his sun bed with his mobile :-)

Wishing you all a big glass of ice cold lemonade and a cool place to enjoy your stitching!
