Stitch from Stash - November

It's been another easy-on-the-wallet month for me. Not a cent spent on XS.  I've been happily occupied loving on a new puppy and finding a few minutes here and there to stitch on the wolf.

This has been a great challenge for me this year and I have enjoyed it WAY more than I thought I would. I will admit that I sort of started January out on a "poor me - I have a limited budget for xs"attitude.  Now, with the support of a lot of people with GREAT ideas and lovely pictures of what they've been stitching from stash, I look back and see a great year w/ no feelings at all of being XS-deprived.

Earlier this  year, I did buy a new pattern from Rosewood Manor and the Valdani threads to go with it. I LOVE the design "Quakers and Quilts".  It will be my "New Year's Start" on January 1st.  I'm going to rotate between the wolf and the new start.
Ideally, I would have finished the wolf by the end of THIS year, but with all the "blips" we've had here and there, I'm okay with it being right where it is.  It will be finished hopefully, in 2015!

Hugs and Grace,
