Stitch from Stash 2015 ~ January

Well, here we are again back in stitch from stash mode.  The challenge is a two-parter this year, both of 6 months duration ~ and with rule changes too.  Mel at Epic Stitching is keeping us all in check and being assisted by a group of trusty helpers.

Budget
My reporting currency will be GB£, most of my spend (or hopefully retained budget) will be made in GB£ so it seems logical to use it for reporting.  If I purchase anything from Europe or USA I will use the converted value charged to my card against my budget.  I will be keeping my monthly budget at the same value as last year ~ GB£25

Reporting
My plan is to report on towards the end of the monthly reporting period ~ I'm taking this report as an achievement as today is the final day!


Month ~ January 2015

Spent ~ ZERO

Credit ~ ZERO

New Starts
1 Summer House Pincushion from Blackbird Designs

All items from stash older than 6 months
2 Bookmark Exchange for NH Yuku Group ~ secret until early next month

I was hoping to have this finished prior to the reporting deadline ~ it will be complete either tonight or tomorrow as I need to get it in the mail
