I worked on two projects.....

The Fallen (which I mistakenly called The Forgotten in my last post)



I had to pick up something else after stitching in black and white for so long, so this is I Love My Country before:

And after:

June Stitch from Stash and Smalls SAL update

I ended May with a balance of $68.98; with the $25.00 for June and the special allowance of $50.00 (after you spend your $25.00) I had a starting balance for June of $143.98 .... and spend I did. Due to a miscalculation of a tax move, I had to give Uncle Sam part of my vacation money (darn him!!!) so I decided to have a staycation and use the excess for some spending/playing. I used part of the money to take a crochet class at a local yarn store, Yarn Therapy. Great people and great teacher--the final class is this Saturday. 
Now for the stash spending that I must report: I spent a total of $87.68, $37.68 from the regular balance and all of the $50.00 special allowance. This leaves me a balance of $56.30 going into July. The first of my purchases are shown in my last post and here are my additional purchases:
Sew Bunny from iStitch (picture from designer website)
Sew Stitcher from iStitch (picture from designer website)
District 13 the Owl Next Door by Bent Creek

What's on your mind....Candy Corn by Bent Creek
French County Bunny by JBW Designs
Cat - O - Lantern by Bent Creek
Navy by Hinzeit
Busy Bee by Lizzie Kate
Tiny Tidings XV by Lizzie Kate
And my only progress in June, so I have no finishes for June (bummer!):

A new "temptation".....

I just discovered the lovely designs of Teresa Murgida after reading Lynn's May Smalls SAL post. I was not familiar with her designs, but loved the simplicity.....well, four pattern purchases later (there goes my June Stitch from Stash...but it was a good cause), I am very happy. Here is what I bought.....

Four Christmas Stockings


I hope you enjoy, I intend to....... :)

May Stitch from Stash and Smalls SAL updates....

I am so excited....I did not spend anything this month....but I did add to my wish list at 123Stitch!!! My carryover amount from April is $43.98, plus the $25.00 for May gives me a balance forward to June of $68.98.

I finished the Save the Trinkets pattern that I created and it is now residing in my to be assembled box. I did not finish anything else, but the end of May is not over there is always hope.
