Stitch from Stash ~ August 2015

Hello All

I've been missing an epic amount of time ~ life does that to you sometimes!

Here I am reporting on my efforts in Stitch from Stash Part B for the first time!

I'm sticking with the same budget I had in Part A and reporting in GBP - £25.00/month


Budget ~ £25.00

Spent ~ £0.00

Cfwd ~ £25.00


Bfwd ~ £25.00

Budget ~ £25.00

Spent ~ £42.00

Cfwd ~ £8.00

My purchases for the month were this kit and a piece of 32ct linen from Sparklies ~ both were bought during my first visit to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC, Birmingham.  My felt kit had sold out at the show so my details were left with Isabelle and it was mailed to me once she had returned to France.
We had a splendid day ~ 4 of us up with the sparrows and on the train!  There were lots of gorgeous quilts in the actual exhibition ~ some exquisite work ~ and plenty stalls to drool over and spend at.  I plan to go again next year.

On the actual stitching front I have nothing to report ~ in all the months I have been missing I don't believe that I have actually stitched.  I've learnt how to knit & crochet so have been doing lots of practise at those.  My stitching travelled to Europe again this year but sadly did not come out of the box it was transported in ~ I'm hoping to get back to it very soon.

Happy stitching
