Stitch from Stash - June update

£37.27 + €100

Well last month, my post had barely made it onto my blog when my finger accidentally slipped on and ordered 3 pieces of fabric.  I wasn't sure which colour would be best so that's the reason for 3 pieces.  So that was £14.49

Then Thread Pickerz on facebook had some really pretty threads, so I thought I would try some.  That was another £9.30.  Oops!

Oh dear...and just when you thought it couldn't get any worse I bought a new Q Snap frame and some Sulky Sliver to try gridding with. That was another £13.45.  I wonder if Mel would let me have another free month if I smiled sweetly?

I suppose I also should declare that I have signed up for Gaynor's (StitchersAnon) cross stitch retreat next year too. The stitching retreat is a bargain at 100 Euros.  I am so excited already, and it's not until May next year!

***Edited to add***
I have just received Bothy Threads Cut Thru Noah's Ark and Bothy Threads Kings and Queens but my mean, nasty husband (yes, Colin...that's you!) has put them away for Christmas.  I also received £10 of threads from The Patchwork Rabbit today seeing as we have extra money this month.  This has been added to my total above.

*****Edited yet again*****
Q Snaps don't count!!!!!  So I get to take £9.95 off my total.  So that brings it down to £37.27

Your fabric is all so pretty! I'm sure you'll put it to good use!! And I don't think the q-snaps count... so you didn't spend quite as much!

The finger slip happened to me too this month! I bought a Qsnap but only because I was going through previous emails from Mel and she said Qsnaps are exempt because they are a tool. So you can feel better about your your shopping spree!

Wel, at least your fingers slipped on lovely fabric and threads, and now you can use them to continue stitching from stash!
