Catch Up Time Again!!!!

I was suppose to post pics of my finishes and my purchases for the month of April last weekend but alas life got in the way. I have time now to catch-up.

My 3 finishes for April that used to earn some SFS spending bucks are the following:

Page 3 of Ink Circles "99" (The first 2 pages were stitched within 6 months of purchasing the pattern so didn't qualify for money earned)

1999 Santa © 1999 Prairie Schooler 

Bee Happy Featuring Holmsey Hare © G. French (Stitchers Anon) I finished it in April but only got around to mounting it on a keepsake box today.

The following are some of my purchases I made last month including the 3 charts are ordered out of fear that the may disappear before I got around to buying them.

I am going to try to refrain from ordering any more charts (outside of my subscription ones) for May and June.

Despite my best intentions I haven't got around to finishing the beading the "Sunflower Fairy" and I am running behind in my stitching on "99".  I hoping to get a least another page done this month.
I have pulled out another DUCJC2015 start this weekend and made significant progress on it so far.

Because I was so busy with Guiding things (it's cookie time) last month I forgot to post my TUSAL picture.  Better late then never.

Earlier this week my DH and I once visited the Temple Gardens Mineral Spa in Moose Jaw, SK.   We love it there so much we are making it an annual event.  This year we made a day trip to the town of Gravelbourg, SK - "A Touch of Europe on the Prairies".

My final picture is of my "Kentucky Derby Hat" I put together on Thursday for our (Girl Guides) Kentucky Derby themed Area Annual General Meeting and Dinner this coming Wednesday.  I used the hat from one of my bridal showers (it has been sitting at the top of closet for the past 29 years), a piece a ribbon and a bow from my stash and a few items I picked up from the dollar store.  I am quite pleased with the result.

That is it for now.  Take care and happy stitching!!!!!!!!

Thank you for visiting!!!!!!!!
