Here's my January report for the Stitch from Stash challenge!
New starts from stash:
Just one, Floral Fifteen by Just Nan, which doubles as my Just Nan SAL piece for January. :) I did the first five blocks (out of fifteen, of course!) so I could pace myself. JN designs have a lot of color changes in a small area and I didn't want my head to asplode. :p
I started with a blank slate and ended up with this!
WIPs or UFOs worked on:
I finished Hope by Brooke Nolan (Brooke's Books), which was my last start from 2013! She started the month as a blob and finished as a very lovely lady. :)
I had also planned to finish the stitching on Bluebeard's Princess (Mirabilia) but my poor neglected WIP of Spring Knotgarden (Chatelaine) was calling to me. I made a huge amount of progress in just eight days. Sorry for the weird angle, but hopefully you can see that those two big empty gardens are now filled. I made a tiny start on the next triangle garden, but it's not enough to warrant a new photo yet. :)
what I used my stash money for:
Well, I actually posted this earlier in the month, but so no one has to click back through...
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 probably shouldn't count the shawl pattern since it's knitting and not stitching, but in keeping with the spirit of the challenge I've decided to include it anyway. I have $1.68 to carry over into February. WOOHOO XD
I think February's purchase will be a Chatelaine from my wishlist, the cattleya orchid flower panel. I've seen pictures of the finished project and OMG! It's gorgeous. I'll have to wait until March to get the bead pack, but I shouldn't need the actual kit because I have quite the hoard of specialty fibers. Even if I don't have exactly what's needed, I can substitute what I have to save a few bucks. :)
Is it next month yet?????? :p
