Spent: $80.43 CDN
Earned: $47.52 CDN ($38.00US)
I hang my head in shame - $80 really!!!!!
Thank goodness I had some carry over from last month and I managed to finish 4 freebies and 6 charts from my stash (purchased over 6 months ago).
$30 CDN (Budget) + $21.28 CDN (carried over from January) + $47.52 CDN (earned)- $80.43 CDN = $18.37 to carry over into March.
I purchased mostly threads - DMC, WDW, CC and GAST plus a couple of fabric cuts for 2 auto-ship charts - LHN's The Sampler Tree Ornament Series - "Oh Christmas Tree" (R&R Reproductions 32ct Winter Brew) and CCN's Classic Collection Ornaments - "Let Us Adore Him" (32 ct Belfast Linen - Natural/Raw Opalescent)
Most of the threads I purchased were for charts I already had in my stash (I know, I know!! I could always use DMC instead of hand-dyed but I like hand-dyed.!!!!! ) The one purchase I should have resisted was the five CC cotton threads in order to get the complimentary chart from LHN - Northpole Express. I saw this chart (finished) on The Twisted Stitcher's (Vonna) blog at the beginning of January and immediately fell in love with it!! Hopefully, I will do better next month.
One thing this challenge has done, is motivate me to look through my existing stash and pull out a few charts/kits that I have had for awhile and to start stitching them. That was the reason I bought them in the first place.
The 4 Mill Hills I finished in January and February had been in my stash for years waiting to be completed. Now they are done!!!
I also pulled out 3 PS annual Santas that I have been purchasing every year and started to stitch them.
Take care and happy stitching!!!
Thank you for visiting.
