Carryover to next month: $2.05
Not a good month for me, but thankfully still within budget, since I didn't spend anything last month. Like many other stitchers, I got sucked in by the clearance sale at Keepsake Needlearts and picked up some things on mega clearance, but...
I regret buying all of it. It was 100% impulse and I'm really upset with myself for not saving my budget for the new Mirabilia releases, which I actually want but can't get because I wasted my money on crap. :(
Well, here is what I got...
I honestly don't see myself stitching ANY of the things I bought, except maybe the Nora Corbett cakes and the pretty bird. And of the five items I bought, four are kits packaged with aida cloth, which I will NOT stitch on. Usually I'd just swap it out, but of those four, two have a background that's printed right on the aida. Subbing a different fabric would be a problem... sigh.
And here are the two charts I REALLY wanted to buy, but couldn't because I wasted my money. Nora Corbett Wisteria and Mirabilia Moon Flower.
And finally, the only project I worked on this month was Gypsy Mermaid. Hoping for a finish next month... I can't believe I haven't had any finishes yet this year. Sigh. To be fair, I've been spending most of my free time writing, so that's just how it goes...
You can't tell from the picture, but the right side is complete up to the seahorse, and the flowers she's holding are done too. It shouldn't be too hard to wrap her up by the end of March.
So, there's my long and somewhat whiny report. This is the first time I've felt like a bit of a failure at SFS since it started last year. Anyone else have some tales of stash-money-wasting woe to share so I don't feel alone in this?
