August SFS

Good morning all! Long time no post on my part.  I wish I had some stitching to share for the month, but I don't. I haven't picked up my needle and thread in about a month, though I really do want to stitch, but I have been busy getting ready planning  and starting our 2nd year if homeschool.  We started a week and half ago and things have been going great.

I am hoping September will bring some fall/Halloween stitching as this is my favorite time of year.

Until Next Time
Happy Stitchung

June SFS

Happy Summer!  I hope everyone is having a great summer and getting lots of stitching in.

I am happy to say, I have been stitching. My stitching mojo finally returned, so I put it to good use as you can see below.

Notforgotten Farms free chart from her blog.  I used a combination of DMC and GAST threads.

School for Little Witches by the Little Stitcher.  35ct fabric and a combo of DMC and GAST threads.

The piece on the left is by Shelly Austen, called Jack in the Boot.  I love the play on words on this piece.  The one on the left is Sew Paris from IStitch.  I  couldn't pass finally stitching one up as I love all things to do with Paris.

My purchases for the month are as follows.  The Primitive Hare Early Witches Mystery Halloween SAL for $15.90.  You can see my small start of it on the right.  The other purchase was Notforgotten Farms Hallowe'en Queen with fabric and DMC for $27.81.

All in all it was a great month. I am just hoping I can keep up the mojo and do the same for July.

Until Next Time

Just a quick update for May!  I have nothing, nada, zip.  I haven't done any stitching, haven't bought anything and haven't looked at my stitching in almost a month.  I have been busy wrapping up our first year of homeschooling, that it got put aside.  I do hope to change that soon.  Hopefully I will have some stitching to show and share in June.

Until Next Time
Happy Stitching

April SFS

Hello Blogging Friends,

I hope everyone is well out there. We are doing great in our neck of the woods. We are winding down our first year of homeschooling. It has been a good year considering the ups and downs of homeschooling, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

For the month of April I spent $18.26. I bought the below piece of linen to stitch The Primitive's Hare Halloween Countdown Calendar on.

As far as stitching, I have been stitching on:

This little free bunny from The Prairie Schooler. You can find it on her website ( right now under free chart. I am stitching on a piece of 35ct. Onyx linen from Week Dye Works. I am using hand-dyed threads instead of DMC.

This is my start on Ghoul Tidings to You from Plum Street Samplers. It can be found in last years JCS Special Halloween Issue. I am not sure of the fabric. It was what I had in my stash.

My little finish for the month is from The Prairie Schooler. It can be found in her Prairie Year-Rounds Chart. Again I used 35ct. Onyx from Week Dye Works and the bunny is stitched with WDW Angel Hair.

That is it for me for this month. I can't wait to check out your blog and see what you have been stitching for April.

Until Next Time
Happy Stitching

Hey all! Hard to believe that it is almost the end of March. Where is the time going?

Have been busy with homeschooling, which is going well, so unfortunately not a lot of of stitching going on. I did purchase two things this. Onto. Both from The Prairie Schooler. I got her chart Where There are Bees and the new set of small cards. I love them and can't wait to stitch them up. All though I would have loved not to spend any money this month, I ended up spending $20. Not to bad. We will see what April will bring.

Not much stitching going on the month, but hoping to have more for next month.

For some reason, I can't upload my post with n image, so this time we will have to go without a photo. Pic am stitching a piece fromThe Prairie Schooler. It is called Witch and can be found in last years JCS Halloween Special issue. I am using Zweigart 40ct Newcastle Linen in a color called Parkland. The threads are from Crescent Colours and are Blackbird and Colonial Copper.

I am off to work on supper.

Until next time,
Happy Stitching

February SFS Report

Hard to believe it has been a month since my last post. Between homeschooling, colds, and stitching, time sure has flown by.

I am happy to report that I didn't buy anything for the month of February. It was quite a hard feat given that there was market, but I held back. Though my wish list has grown ever longer.

I did do some stitching from stash though.

Above are three small Valentine pieces I stitched up. The Love piece is by Prairie Schooler and from her February Leaflet. I stitched a small section from a larger piece in the leaflet.

The above sideways pretty is the new free chart from The Primitive Hare. I am stitching on a piece of 40ct linen from my stash and using Crescent Colours Old Blue Jeans.

This little piece is from The Prairie Schooler and can be found in her leaflet called Heads Up. Again I am using a piece of scrap fabric from my stash and am stitching it with DMC.

I hope to have the WIPs done by the end of month.

How was your February. Did you buy anything from market? If so, what did you get?

I look forward to seeing what everything is stitching on.

Until next time
Happy Stitching

Stitching From Stash January 2014 Update

Happy Late New Year All! I hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start.

I joined Mel's SFS Challenge for this year. I decided it was time to start stitching what I have in my stash and to buy only what I needed, not what I wanted. So I have a limit of $25 a month to spend and I am going to do my hardest to stick with it, even with Market coming up.

I am proud of myself. I only spent $15.35 this month. Here is what I purchased. 2 skeins if CC threads, a spool of Krenkik and a piece of 35ct. Red linen. All of these items will be used in my stitching in the upcoming weeks.

For stitching from stash this month I stitched this little piece from Lizzie Kate. It was in a issue of a JCS magazine. I can't remember which on right now.

I also started these two little pieces. I don't know why this picture kept turning itself sideways. The one on black fabric is called Fleur de Love by Hosgepodge Cottage and the one on purple fabric is a free chart from Shepherds's Bush. Which can be found on their website. I am hoping to finish these two pieces up before the end of the month.

That's it from me right now. What have you been stitching?

Until Next Time
