Stitch from Stash - March



Time to report on the Stitch From Stash challenge coordinated by Mel at Epic Stitching.  The idea is (obviously) to stitch from our stash to reduce spending.  I also look at it as a way to focus on reducing my accumulation of stash.

During the month of March, I have spent zilch...nada... zero!

I focused on stitching and shopped my stash collection instead of online or at the store.

I started and finished Stitcher's Heart:

 
I worked on Japanese Garden:

 
I started Petal Pincushion:


I also finished the Spring/Easter mailart, but can't show photos until it arrives to its new home.

Until the next SFS,
