Sometimes, I just can't get into the flow with things this week...so much I should get finished or at least work on, and I just can't get myself onto it. Oh well, might at least write my SFS post in time, right? Let be begin by telling you that I did NOT have a good month (SFS wise speaking) again, but before I go into detail I want to show you a picture of the Jodyri design order I had last month - it has finally arrived, and boy, is that fabric pretty (the threads as well of course!):
The fabric is all sparkly, and I kinda wish I had ordered a bigger piece than just 13x9", but I'm sure I'll find an appropriate use and a reason to order more eventually :)
Now on to this month's spoils...first, there was Joan Elliott's Fairy Enchantment off ebay for 8.25€/$11.22. It has some beautiful designs, I really wanna do the one on the cover, but some of the others are very cute and/or pretty as well.
Then there were to small kits, also off ebay, for 6.50€ ($8.84) and 1€ ($1.36). Both are eventually going to be gifts for people, the kittens for my grandma's friend who has to cats just like those, and the lamb for our hairdresser who's also a friend of the family and loves sheep of all kinds; but I don't know when I'll actually get around to doing them.
And THEN, Mel announced that there was a $50 bonus this month on top of the regular $25 as long as you fully spent the latter, and that was just what I had waited for because I had been planing a Halloween project that wouldn't possibly fit into one month's budget - I have wanted to stitch something by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery ever since I first saw their designs some time in December/January, and when they announced their Mysterious Halloween Town Club, that was the perfect opportunity for me - so I got the pattern for $10.95 and a complete material kit off Etsy for 23.94€/$32.55. Maybe I should just have gotten the threads and a fabric somewhat close to the one recommended on sewandso and saved the horrendous price for shipping (which was another 12€) but I just wanted to do it right, if you understand. So, may total for this month is $64.92, with nothing to carry over to next month. Sadly, I already know pretty well were next month's budget will be going *sighs heavyly* - I still think I'm doing this wrong, I'm just building more and more stash instead of using up any!
