Pray forgive me as this will be another rather short update, but at least, this one will be on time! Time for what? Well, for Stitch from Stash, of course! Another month has passed, and against my own predictions I stayed strong this time and didn't order any new stitching stash. Well, I did order a few more needles because ever since threading all those greens for Angel of Frost, I can never find any new needles when I need them, and a small set of beading needles as well as I did not have any of those and beading with sewing needles is not quite the optimum. However, if I recall the SFS rules correctly, those should be excluded from the budget, so I can declare this month a success at $0. No promises for next month though; I'll leave for Prague tomorrow morning and I know that there are a few absolutely awesome eastern Europa based cross stitch companies, so I might or might not find some stuff I can't resist there.
I did however purchase some stuff on another front...I've recently gotten a little more into knitting, mostly to a German blog I've started reading for the authors beautiful crocheting projects, and that has lead me to another blog of a knitting designer that does the most wonderful scarves using hand dyed or otherwise multicolored sock yarn. So I couldn't resist and I ordered two skeins of yarn together with the appropriate needles, and I'll try my hands on one of those scarves myself sometime soon. I really love the colors, can't wait to see how they will come out in the design:
While I'm still rather busy (mostly university staff and flat-hunting), I did some stitching done anyways - in fact I finished my little kittens just a few hours ago, and just in time, so my grandma can send them on to the recipient while I'm gone because I won't be back in time to do so myself. I'm rather pleased with the outcome of this one; originally I had only bought this kit because the kittens reminded me of a friend's, but I really enjoyed stitching them and aren't they ever so cute?
So as I said, I'll be off for a total of five days starting tomorrow, which means some more love for my bookmarks while on the train and such, and after I return I will finally, finally start an focus on Angel of Frost, hoping I can still get it done for christmas!
