Stitch From Stash - June


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 June, I spent $6.76 for an OOP Stoney Creek chart called Cobblestone Village.  It spoke to me, what can I say?  My plan is to do them all in a row like the framed piece in the back row.



I finished Petal Pincushion:



I also finished a Sledding Friends ornament by Foxwood Crossings.  I bought the chart and sleds when I went to the PALS Retreat at Myrtle Beach, SC last fall.


I started Sledding Friends Snowman and worked on N is for Nurse.  Photos of both later.

I was a lucky winner for last month's SFS drawing!  Here's what the postman brought me:

 


Until the next SFS,

I do love your Petal Pincushion, it is very pretty.
Your Cobblestone Village will look great, as in the picture of the street.
What a cute sleigh ornament, it is so unusual I'd love to stitch one like that.
