Stitch From Stash - July

Time to report on the Stitch From Stash challenge coordinated by Mel at Epic Stitching.  At over the halfway point, I think I've done pretty well.  The idea of SFS is to stitch from our stash to reduce spending.  I also look at it as a way to focus on reducing my accumulation of stash.  Actually it's fun to "shop" from our own stash.

During the month of July, I didn't spend a thing.

I had a couple of quick finishes since the June report:

Penguin and Snowman Sledding Friends
Designer: Foxwood Crossings

I started a new project called Heart of America.  I thought it was an appropriate project to start on the 4th of July.  It's a 2008 special release by Little House Needleworks.

I'm stitching it on 32ct Jobelan fabric called Bay Rum with Crescent Colours floss.  I didn't like how the white showed up on the Bay Rum, so I swapped it out for Weeks Dye Works peach.  How does the word "Peace" look with it?

I did a tiny bit on N is for Nurse.  (Photo in previous post).

Didn't work on JG last month, but hope to get back to it soon.

Until the next SFS,
