Stitching from Stash 2014 Update for May

Hello fellow stitchers,

Hope everyone is starting to feel a bit of Spring in the air.

I've got a finish related to SFS 2014 challenge. I just finished Major Tree by AAN Designs. Pics below. I've enjoyed this very much.

My May SFS project is Sharon Pope's sampler "The Pedigree of Honey". I started this over the week end and have completed the bee skep and the right-hand vase. I haven't a pic of my work but below is a pic of the sampler. I am hoping to finish this within a month. I might start something for Christmas not sure.

I am also still working on the Petal pin-cushion from JCS but the construction directions have errors so it has not been fun.

So far here is what I have done for the SFS challenge:

Jan - spent 0
Feb spent 0
March spent $4
April spent $9
May spent 0

Not bad at all. How am I doing so well? Other than my other tips that I posted previously, I have not visited any shops in months. As you might know, I travel thru Florida and SC quite a bit and would routinely drop into Local shops and spend a few bucks. I stopped doing that for this challenge and even though I was sorely tempted to drop into "A Stitch In Time" in Jacksonville, I just didn't. Almost ran into the Hobby Lobby in Daytona but I mind is stronger than my...mind. HAhaaahaaa.

OK, well, that's it for now and wishing everyone happy stitching moments!
