With that done, the original plan was to finish Bluebeard's Princess, but when I was sorting my new fabric stash (purchased last year, I have been sticking to the Stitch from Stash rules this year!!) for photos, I found my WIP of Chatelaine's Spring Knotgarden. It hadn't been touched in about a year and a half. SHAME! I rescued it from the fabric box and got to work.
Here's the full image and a closeup of the corner I'm working on. Most of the blue background was missing when I first dug it out, but it worked up really fast and now I'm beading the corner. :)
So with that, I'm changing my goal to "finish stitching Bluebeard's Princess" to "finish part 2 of Spring Knotgarden" ...aka the two giant and obvious empty spaces you can see in the zoomed out picture. :)
And finally, I've spent my stash budget for the month. :p Here's what I got!
1. Emozioni by Renato Parolin ($13.82)
2. Poinsettia Star by Faby Reilly ($4.50)
3. Afterglow shawl pattern by Diana Rozenshteyn ($5.00)
I wasn't sure if I should count the shawl since that's knitting and not cross stitch, but in the spirit of things I figured why not? And yes, I already had the yarn, so I'm not cheating by counting the pattern and not the (super expensive silk, thx!) yarn. :p
I have $1.68 left for January but I think I'll save that for next time. ;)
