Here's my January
Bless me Father, for I am weak. This month I spent 28.00 and change on stash. Sigh. OVERBUDGET.
I have been lusting after LHN's Snowman Trio for a while now. I kept telling myself that I didn't need another snowman pattern. I didn't NEED anything. Well, a bad day at work and an equally bad day at home (the dog left me multiple stinky deposits throughout my house because she got into the garbage) prompted me to visit Anita's Little Stitches site. Lo and behold, I purchased the pattern and a few things more since you must buy $25 from her site. So...this is what I bought:
- LHN Snowman't Trio
- JBW's A Very Merry Winter.
Yes, another snowman pattern that I saw on Stitching Dream's blog and fell in love with.
- Threadwork's Primitive's Beggar's Christmas (I love the tree)
- 2 balls of Valdani thread for a couple of With Thy Needle and Thread patterns and
- Piecemaker's needles (my fav)
Maybe next month I will be better. Sigh.
I did stitch from my stash though, if that's a consolation. I stitched Lizzie Kate's January Flip It's Bits but I'm gonna make it into an bowl filler.
I worked on A Needleworker's Sampler from With Thy Needle and Thread and I stitched up 2 Christmas Ornaments from the 2013 JCS ornament issue. I am happy that I stitched from my stash. Now I just have to work on that spending thingie.
Other than that..are you staying warm? It's brutal in Upstate NY. Today the highs were in the 20's but it's going to be Arctic-like Monday through Wednesday. It's so hard to work outside in this weather. My horses are stuck in the barn, everything is frozen and it takes an extra 20 minutes to switch out water buckets. I hate 4:15AM when it's this cold out. Even the dog hates to go outside to go potty. I'm ready for SPRING!
Heads up...if you stuck with me this long, I am going to have a give-away...I'm approaching 200 followers, so when I hit that number then I will be doing something special!
STAY WARM!! I'm off for hot cocoa and my afghan.
