SFS 2015-A UPdate

Greetings all,

I have been diligently working on my WIPs and UFOs, all from stash! woo hoo!

So far for this year:

Jan spent $0
Feb spent $19.95 on a table runner.

That should leave me $25 from Jan and $4 from Feb, for a total of $30. Despite this, I really do aim to spend only the allotted amount of $25 if I do decide to purchase something.

Here is pic of my second finish from this year. I started this in 2013 but just got around to finishing it. Am not counting it towards my completed stitches as I can't remember if this was from stash originally.Still a finish!

Below are pics of WIPs. All of the stitching is done and now I have to put it together. This came from Stash, as its something I started last year.

I decided last year to work on some of my prefinished items. Below is a tea towel that I hope to have completed soon. It's been a quick enough stitch so we shall see when I actually finish it. This is also from stash and am using substitutions for the threads (DMC).

I hope to have these two finished before I start on anything else, and so far, so good. No bad joojoo to keep me from finishing these. yay! 

For those of you suffering the cold effects from this winter, all I can say is hang on. Stay sharp and don't let this cold numb your minds or spirits. I remember winters like this when I was living in NY and it takes all of your energy to stay focused.
