Stitch from Stash Update: March



Hello my friends! Here we are at another update. The months are rolling by so far, it won't be long until I move out of my current home into a new one. Scary stuff! At least I always have my stitching to keep me grounded :)
There hasn't been loads of stitching recently. I've been concentrating mainly on my assignments and other University work. So, I only have one piece to share for this update:

Current WIPs:


I've made quite a lot of progress with White Magic. Although stitched on black aida, it really has been enjoyable. There are a lot of blended threads and half stitches, but it's good fun. I think I'm a long way off from a finish, although the journey is always the best bit :)

I've had little time for stitching, and even less time for shopping, so this month's budget is once again:

£0!

I haven't had to spend a single penny yet. Everything I've stitched so far this year was already in my possession. It feels good to know I've saved a few pound by not rushing to the shops every time I think I need a new thread. I keep finding alternatives so far. I wonder if I could go the whole year only stitching from stash? We'll have to wait and see!
Best wishes to you all,

I'm looking forward to seeing how you progress with White Magic as I was given the kit last year for my birthday! It looks beautiful so far.

How amazing your White Magic looks, Bekca--that will really be a spectacular finish when you're done! Hope these next few months go well for you--still can't believe you're graduating soon. Those university years really do pass by quickly...
