Stitch From Stash - November


It's the second to the last month of the Stitch From Stash challenge coordinated by Mel at Epic Stitching.  The idea of SFS is to stitch from our stash to reduce spending. 

I started the year off doing sooooo well.  September, October, and November has not seen such greatness.  While I did better this month than I did last month, I ended up buying more on stash.  Although it doesn't count toward the challenge... I've sold quite a bit more than that on my stash-for-sale FB page than I've spent.  So for me, it more than makes up for what I bought.  So what did I buy?  Behold....



The entire Snapperville series ~ Bent Creek
 
Long Winter ~ Bent Creek
 
13th Colony series ~ By The Bay Needleart

Winter Cottage Boxer ~ Lizzie Kate
 
Merry Minis ~ Waxing Moon Designs

Total Spent:  $43.50

Until next time,

Hey my theory is if you are going to shop go all out and you sure did. Beautiful charts. I look forward to watching your progress.

That's a lot of stash! I actually spent some money this month. I got 51 skeins of DMC because Jo-Ann had a 25% off your total purchase coupon so I bought the colors I
thought I didn't have and somehow I'm still missing some. I also got the Craftways Christmas book.

Great shopping!!! I may have to take a couple of those off your hands when you're finished! :)

HI Meari, great selection of charts. I have the Snapperland Autumn Farm series ready to go but I keep getting distracted.

Pam in IL said...

Oh wow, you picked alot of great designs! I like all the Bent Creek Snapperville series too.

Debs said...

Nice stash additions Meari. If you are going down might as well do it in a big way! I am so glad I didn't do stitching from stash this year. I would have failed big time. I've been on a major stash enhancement all year. I blame all the enabling from the fb groups I am on lol.

You bought some great new stash, Meari... Let's face it chart collecting is a lot less expensive than some things others collect :)

Enjoy!

Mylene said...
