Stitch from Stash - March report

It's that time of the month again, when the pennies have to be counted and the confessions made.  I am doing OK so far, still spending but within budget.  Some stitchers in this challenge are spending nothing at all.  I take my hat off to you!

In March I spent the grand total of £39.36!! I haven't blown the budget though as I carried some over from Jan and Feb.  I still have £10.97 in the kitty.  Phew!

I bought this lovely chart and the threads to stitch it with...
Cottage Garden Samplings - March's Daffodil

£10 on this fun stitch...
Bothy Threads - Hen Fun

and £5 buying World of Cross Stitch magazine in which I was blogger of the month!

So all in all a good month's shopping I think.

I have a big finish to report but I think I will save that for the WIPocalypse!  I'm busy at the moment trying to get a few smaller finishes under my belt before buying a frame and stand to start my HAED on.

Hope you are all busy stitching, from stash or otherwise!

Until next time



  1. Aww so beautiful xx

  2. I'm working on the March's Daffodil at the moment - you will love stitching it. I have already done January's and February's and it's my aim to stitch one a month and make a quilted book out of them all.

  3. Love your new stash Justine. I sure wish the Bothy Thread kits weren't so expensive.


  4. Love your new stash. Daffodils chart is beautiful and Bothy Threads chart is super darling. love Annette

  5. The daffodil chart is beautiful, I like how the bird house is incorporated into the border. Great find!

  6. Your new stash is gorgeous. I love the Graden Journal charts and also Bothy Threads. They promise some great stitching hours.

  7. Great job sticking to your SFS goals. I love the Bothy threads piece so cute.

  8. Lovely Spring stash, no wonder you couldn't resist! :) Enjoy!

  9. Fun purchases! And you stayed under budget, so good for you!!!

  10. Well done for staying within budget! I haven't spent anything yet, but that just means I can buy lots when I do decide to crack open my purse :P
    Best wishes.
