Oh dear I have been a bad girl this month! Hanging head in utter shame!
Carried Fwd from March : £79.09
Amount Spent : £25.25
Earned : £8.00 ( for CCN Frosty Forest )
Balance to carry over to May : £86.84
At least I am still doing OK and hopefully April will have just been a wee glitch although I still have the Shepherd's Fold to come yet and the first part of that is the most expensive. Oh well I should be OK! Lol.
So what have you buying I hear you ask?! Well I really really wanted the Little House Needleworks Welcome Spring chart that comes with the 3 new Classic Colorworks threads. Of course I couldn't find anywhere in the UK that had it so I decided to do an order from the USA. I haven't ordered for a while due to increased postage costs and one place I was happy with once who did good postage costs seemed to have lots of bad reviews over the last 6 months or so so that was a no no for me. I ordered from Down Sunshine Lane in the end and these arrived last week. I also had my auto from Patchwork Rabbit and even though the chart does not count the threads and fabric do and I have also paid an invoice for the next 2 Lizzie Kate 3 Little Words charts. Certify me now please!
I have had another little finish this week. As you know Barb and I do a Halloween SAL on a Monday evening and last week I started Val's Stuff Scaredy Cats and here it is now finished! I haven't counted this towards my earnings as I'm not sure if magazine designs count.
Val's Stuff Scaredy Cats
Onto my progress now. I am hoping for a page finish on my robin by the end of May. I can see I am making progress but I can't see it being finished when I would like it to be. Once my garden journal pieces are finished I am planning on stitching 2 evenings on my robin just to try and make it happen. There have been a lot of colour changes on this page so it has slowed me up a lot so fingers crossed the next page will go quicker!
My second SAL of the week with Barb is the Shepherd's Bush one and I have to say I am loving being back to stitching their lovely designs . This is where I am at on My Mom's Garden.
Our third SAL is, of course, the classic Christmas ornaments and Christmas Cookies. We are both going to be finished on this one this week so look out for new starts on the next one next week :).
Good progress was made on October's Marigold. I just love the orange and black combination on this one.
Final one I can show is the May cottage . I seem to going so slow on this one and it needs to be finished very soon! April is going by too quickly!
Abi came home from work one day last week feeling a little down and after tea wanted to go for a walk so off we went. I had my camera with me and guess what I took photos of lol!
These little sweeties were looking for their mamas.
This sparrow was hiding in the hedge but making lots of noise!
That's it from me for this time. Thank you for continuing to visit me :)
Until next time.
Take care everyone.
With much love
