February's Stitch from Stash

£0.63

Well yet again it has been a successful month with hardly penny spent by me. I needed some ribbon for the 'thing' I am making for Justine. The lighting is a bit harsh in Hobbycraft and I couldn't decide which ribbon to get so I brought both home for the grand price of 63p!  Must be my cheapest ever shop there!

 I have been very lucky to as Colin bought me both of these, one to cheer me up and the other for Valentine's Day.



I was even luckier when I won Linda's blog giveaway which is a gift certificate for 123stitch.  Sadly it wasn't for $500 so I am trying to narrow it down a bit.  It's quite ironic, once upon a time I would have spent it 3 times over and paid the extra but now I am trying to be 'good'.  It's hard though as there are quite a few things I would like!  Thank you Linda xx

Great restraint on your spending! What a nice gift of new charts! Have fun shopping at 123Stitch!

Just visited your WIP/UFO list! I love how you sorted them, down to WIVSP and what you would stitch when there is nothing left. LOL! I'm trying to cut my list in half this year, and move them over to the Finishes page instead!

You have been doing so great this month with spending nearly nothing. And nevertheless you can enjoy two new charts that you got as gifts. I'd say that's a wonderful solution, lol. Enjoy your stitching from stash.

Justine said...

Well done! I'm sorry that it was my fault you had to spend anything at all, but so excited to see what you are making!

Well, it seems like not spending money is working out great, good things are coming your way! ;)
Lucky you!

Wow, that's a great low spend, less than a skein of DMC!
