Stitch From Stash 2015-A January post and Smalls SAL

 Well, squeaking in here at the last minute as usual but don't faint......with a finish!  My courage failed me when it came time to stitch the silk ribbon around it so beads were attached which goes some way to explain why I'm so late.......

Shepherds Bush
Our Hearts Pincushion
30 x 30 ($2.00)
I have had the chart for more than six months and all the stitching was completed in 2015.  Kate.....start breathing again, please.......

So, just the facts, ma'am..........

Month - January
Budget - $25.00
Spent - $4.00
Earned $2.00
Total remaining - $23.00

This is also my entry for the January Smalls SAL.  I've decided only complete finishes will be eligible for this SAL so you may well not see me back here again, lol!

I'll be back tomorrow or the next day to show you how I spent the $4.00.

January and the first Gifted Gorgeousness post

Bet you thought I'd forgotten, didn't you? I must admit I am squeaking in at the last minute but I made it!

Jo at Serendipitous Stitching had the lovely idea of the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL which give us all a chance to stitch on, display and thank again all the generous people who have gifted us with patterns, fabric or threads.  The one I am showing today comes under the heading.....

...........Any chart/kit which was given to you

Our Hearts Pincushion
Shepherds Bush

This was gifted to me by my sweet chum, DJ, she of Tickled Pink fame, and regrettably I don't remember when...... Not the best photograph, taken with my iPad, the finished one will be better!

It's a beautiful one from Shepherds Bush, I'm not sure how I'll finish it, but would really love to have it on the display shelf for February.......

Promises, promises, sigh!
