You all remembered that I'm going to try and stitch from my stash this year didn't you?
So far I'm doing ok but as we're aren't even a month into the year it's not really a surprise is it.
My January 1st start this year is Flower Tender and is the last of the bigger Pocket Dragon designs that were available in chart form so of course it's from my stash.
I really didn't get far with it because I needed to get Lewis finished so it got an hour or two spent on it and that was it.
Once Lewis was done I made a start on Thread Bear which is a kit that has been in my stash for around 20 years, yes you read that right!
I remember buying it and it's probably the thing that's been there longest but I won't swear to that.
My next new start is simply called Sunflowers and is the one I've used some of my budget for. The chart, fabric and 2 of the colours are from stash but I had to buy the other 6 because it calls for Anchor and I don't have many of those.
I checked about the budget beforehand with being in the UK and was told that sticking to £25 was ok but I've seen other UK stitchers going with £15 which is roughly what $25 converts to so I thought I'd split the difference and go with £20.
My plan is to save it up all year so I have something to spend if I go to Harrogate again this year or maybe the NEC in November.
New starts from stash = 3
PHD's worked on = 2 (Lewis and the tree farm)
£ spent = 6 x 90p = £5.40
Budget left = £14.60
