SFS 2015 Update for April

Hello all, I am sure that those of you living in the northern hemisphere must be very glad that winter is sort-of over. Now for the rains, flash floods and tornadoes that make spring such a lovely time in this region of the world. For me in Miami, it means the start of rainy season. Our traffic reports include flooding updates and roads to avoid..yay!

As far as Stitching from Stash goes - I haven't been stitching very much be here are a few pics and my update:

April - spent $5 on a huck towel that was on sale at Michaels craft store.
March - spent 0
Feb - spent $19.99
Jan - spent 0

Carrying forward I had the $55 and adding the $20 from April takes me to $75 dollars accrued for future spending...not planning on it though.

Following two pic are of an experiment tinting aida with crayon. Interesting textured effect...super for kids projects and cutesy stuff. I basically colored the unwashed fabric with crayon and pressed it with parchment paper.

This next pic is progress on my tea towel. Nothing impressive but haven't been stitching much at all.

And last, is latest quick finish from Pine Mountain - a Smidgen called spring. Completed using stuff from stash. Wish I could straighten the pic but no matter what I do to it, its always side ways!

To those of you planting and getting ready for spring, hope its a mild one for you!
