My first post of the New Year! where does the time go 😮 In addition to swearing off buying quilting fabric I’ve also decided to spend this year cross stitching from my stash. I’m very good at spotting new charts that I like and then kitting them up – much more quickly than I can stitch of course! This year I’m going to lose that habit and stitch what I’ve got stashed away. We are allowed a month off plus a small spend each month – the budget for that is $25, I’m going to take that as being £15 and I’ll use it to buy any threads that I run out of for those things that I have already kitted up.
This is my January report for Stitch from Stash:
Amount Spend: £0
New Starts from Stash: Tree of Hope by Mirabilia; Florette Stitcher’s Carousel by Jane Greenhoff
WIPs or UFOs worked on: On the Rosebud Swing by All Our Yesterdays;

This is a new start – the Florette Stitcher’s Carousel by Jane Greenhoff. This is a lovely project that makes all sorts of stitching accessories. This first part that I’m working on is a pincushion which gets fixed to the top of the wooden carousel. There are also needle rolls and scissors case and some other whatnots that I forget the name of now! I bought this kit last year for my birthday.
My second start is the Tree of Hope by Mirabilia. The chart and beads were a gift from Sue (my Santa this year in our little group of friends). I had this all kitted up before Christmas ready to start on New Year’s Day along with the Mirabilia Facebook group. I am loving stitching it so far.
It would be nice to finish off that Rosebud Swing before next month’s report!
It’s been quite a long time since I updated my blog and I have some other finishes to show but I’ll do those in a separate post as they’re not related to Stitch from Stash.
