One last post to catch up - let's just get this out of the way! But before I get into details, let me start by saying - this is going to be my last SFS post for the time being. I survived 2014 and 2015-A, but am not signing back on for 2015-B. I love SFS, I loved the challenge and I think it was really good for me to reign my spending in in this first exciting phase of really 'getting' into the online stitching community and discovering all those great and epic designs and fabrics and everything. But I'm a little TOO good at sticking to the rules - never going over budget, missing out on awesome offers and limited edition stuff, planning projects months in advance so I can get the supplies in small bits...I just want to be a bit spontenous, and my character won't allow for that while those slef-imposed rules are in place. So I'm leaving for now. And while I'm convinced that I will go on a bit of a spending spree for the first time, I'm also sure that in the long run the lessons learned will stick with me and I'll do okay :)
So, enough blahblah, on to the part with pretty pictures! What did I get? First, I treated myself to a Design Works kit I had been looking at for months. It's called 'My day off' and I want to finish it before October, as a birthday present for Felix' mum who works several part time jobs and always struggles to keep her one free day actually free since people always want her to do stuff for her on that day. It just fits perfectly - right down to the black cat! (not her cloth size though :D). That was 25.99€.
Then I went on a bit of an ebay-spree. I got an other design works kit which has been on my watch list for weeks for $14.99, and a Lizzie*Kate pattern for only 1€. Both haven't arrived yet, so I can only show you the pictures from the auction.
I also got three patterns from Indigo Rose, for 1€ each. I had never heard of the designer before, but the preview pictures (while to small to make out details) looked pretty. The patterns arrived today and they are absolutely gorgeous! Now my problem is that two of them are from a Seasonal Series (I got Spring and Autumn) and now I just NEED to find Summer and Winter as well...they are long out of print, but maybe I'll get lucky some day :)
As for earnings, I finished a full (7.50€) and partial (4€) page on Cut Thru' Cottage, and also Clue 3 of Halloween Town (4€). I have a final 'Carry Over' of 44.94€.
I also got some new yarn to show: three balls of a nice, light cotton off ebay, I just fell in love with the color combination and I'll probably make a light summer shawl with them. And then Daniela (the one that also does the corchet blog parade) release her first crochet box with everything you need to make four garlands, which will look great in our apartment I'm sure.
