Stitch From Stash Reporting July 2015



July Budget: £20
July Spends: £13.99
Earned: £1.50
Carried forward: £7.51


I have found it really difficult to find time for everything I want/need to do these past few weeks and as a result my blog posts have fizzled away.

What little spare personal time I have had I have prioritised my stitching.

The plus side of course is that I haven't had a lot of time for stash shopping either.

In July I managed to fit in a visit to my favourite London shop, Liberty's, when I was there on business.   There was a sale on and I bought a few presents as well as treating myself to some irresistible fabric and a bargain needlepoint kit.   Liberty's don't sell a lot of cross stitch material but I did find a piece of French 32 count linen for only £3.99 - I couldn't leave it behind even though I don't know yet what I am going to use it for.

The other expenditure was on some hand dyed threads from Jodyri's Designs.

Only one small finish this month - a birthday card using a Michael Powell design from a magazine.

  1. Well done on your SFS! It's always nice to have a bit of fabric on the side. Hope you'll get back to having time for everything soon :)
