Stitch from Stash 2014 Update!

Hi folks, as you can see, I have fallen behind on my updates. The holidays have kept me very busy as well as a few hospitalizations of family members and other stuff that happens in Life! We are all together so that is a good thing. In November, I did not spend any money for stitchy stuff. I did start on Christmas presents for other stitchers but none for me.

In December, I did do some shopping for myself at Herrschener's on-line. See pic below. I love the Mill Hill beaded ornaments. They are perfect for a lighted tree as the light sparkles off of the beads and it makes for a lovely display.

The pins below I ordered from somewhere but can't recall where. They were on sale for about $8.00 dollars, they retail for about $13.00.

SNF -  So far this year for SFS:

Dec - $42.38
Nov - $0
Oct $0
Sept $16

I have saved hundreds of dollars on this challenge and hope to do the same next year, but more importantly for me, I have started all my projects from stuff in my stash.I want to thank Mel at Epic Stitching for hosting this. She has worked very hard on this and deserves a big congratulations and hug for all of her efforts. Count me in for next year Mel!

Wishing all a Merry Christmas and Prosperous and Healthy New Year!
