Stitch From Stash January Update

Mel from Epic Stitching has organized a Stitch From Stash Group for 2014.  We are challenged to stitch from our stash with an allowance of not more than $25.00 per month for stitching stash.  I have so much stash that this sounded like fun.  I'm hoping to spend very little on stitching supplies this year - maybe fabric or a thread here and there but that's it :)  

I've stitched a few little things this month that I'll be sharing later.  

This month I have spend $0.00 with $25.00 carried over to February.  I stitched a portion of Just Nan's Harmony Sampler - Winter.  The fabric is showing lighter than it actually is.  Its more of a dark teal.  The little pillow looks so much better in person  (not so wonky!), lots of pearls and sparkling snowflakes.

  1. Congratulations on your no spending month. Love the little pillow finish. What's the WIP in your header? (I'm a sucker for holly)

    1. Hello, welcome :) The wip is Prairie Schooler's Christmas Ark. Book 32. I'm a huge PS fan and have been collecting their books for a while. Every time I see it I think I should haul it out and work on it some more.
