Stitch From Stash and TP giveaway!

Hello and hope everyone is enjoying some sunshine wherever you are!

Stitch from Stash is hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching. The idea is that you have a budget of $25 per month and try to stitch from your stash rather than buying new stuff.

I had an epic FAIL in April. I had to order a kit for an exchange piece so I treated myself to two Bothy Threads kits, the Cut Thru Rocket and Kings and Queens which I have wanted for ages. I figured if I was going to blow the budget I might as well spend spend spend!

We are allowed one free month and that's mine.

In May I have spent nothing! I got shopping out of my system in April I think.

Here's a little finish from Cross Stitcher magazine..

This fabric is a great match! I will probably make a little pillow with it.

And I finally finished my deep sea diver..

Sorry the photo quality isn't great.

And well done if you've read this far...the winner of the Lizzie*Kate travelling pattern is..


Please let me have your address and I'll have this in the post for you tomorrow!

Until next time

Well done on your sweet finishes! I, too have the BT Kings & Queens kit. We have such similar taste! I won't start it for a while. I will finish the other BT Cut Thru's first.
