I am happy to say I finally finished my "May Flowers" project for WOCS
It turned our really nice, but seemed to take forever to stitch. Next on the agenda is thank  you cards for my boys' Robotics club to give their adult mentors and a birthday card for my niece. She's into gymnastics and I found a really cute pattern I can personalize.
Ok everyone, this is your last chance to shop without it counting against you.  Stitch from Stash officially starts tomorrow.

Take care,

Stitch from Stash Rules
1.  Monthly budget of $15.
2.  On the last day of each month, e-mail me,, your progress for the month, including new starts, finishes, progress on unfinished projects, etc and what you spent during the month.  Please send me your e-mail and I'll send a reminder out.

Exemptions to the budget
1.  sales tax and/ or shipping
2. finishing( framing, etc).  I struggled whether to include this one, but I hate to see someone reduce their stash and then not be able to finish it
3.  gifted money( money/ gift cards given as gifts)
4.  subscriptions and renewals to subscriptions

I will track everyone's progress and announce who was lowest each month and who was lowest for March- December.  Remember, there are no prizes, just the knowledge that you have diminished your stash!

If anyone has any suggestions or would like additional rules added, please let me know.

Happy President's Day!  Well, eye surgery seemed to go ok, but I have another follow up later today which should tell me more. In the meantime, since I have no distance vision, my near vision was working great and I finished "Reflection" by Ann Logan. I was going to post a link to the pattern, as it's a free one, but I can't pull her website up right now.
I took it to Michael's to get it framed and I can't wait to get it back. I used a double matt, with the one closest to the picture a light bluish gray and the larger matt  one of the blues in the area surrounding the tree.  The frame is pure white, which really emphasized the lighter areas in the picture. 

Stitch for stash rules will be posted tomorrow, I promise, and I will add a comment to BB Interactive to let people know.

Hi everyone and thanks for joining in the "stitch for stash" group.  I'm working on rules and should have them posted by next Monday.  Hopefully sooner, but I'm having some minor eye surgery this week and am not sure how long I'll be away from the computer.

Calling all stitchers.  I'm starting a "stitch from stash" group.  Please follow me and comment to join in the fun.  I'm new to some of this "techie" stuff, so bear with me while I figure out exactly how to run this.
