Sorry for being off the grid for a bit. I had a craft fair last weekend. It went okay. Made some sales ... spent about 3 times what we made. It was nice, though I am starting to notice that more and more the sellers are quite depressed and upset. Surely that shouldn't happen. But hey ho, with people not buying, and it being your livelihood I am not surprised. I guess I am lucky that I did not pick art or craft as my job. There are those lucky few ... but in most cases you need a cool head for business that would outshine the love of your craft.
Anyhow ... I will need to post two weeks worth of stitching (again ... sigh).
Okay 1,200 stitches:
And 1,300 stitches:
I have a feeling it will be finished soon.
Stitch from stash update ... I think this is about 2 days late.
This is going to be trying as I have not properly counted ... £/$ 45.03 was the carry forward at the close of September ... I spent a total of £2 in October on charts from a charity shop. Sorry need to upload some pictures of those. They quite old/vintage looking. And that months allowance gets me to £/$ 68.03 as at the beginning of this month (November) ... and with this months a total of £/ $ 93.03.
What I actually bought this month ... of course more exciting than actually saying how much I am allowed to spend:
I can't believe I actually bought it!!! It is 'Miserable Old Twit-Too' by Judy Rossouw. I have been trying to find this pattern/kit for some time ... as you know I am getting quite a collection of charts by this artist. And this definitely a one that I was missing.
I also bought some charts from Love thy Thread ... only till tomorrow left to buy (I think) or was the latest email saying Friday. I think it is tomorrow. My purchases (some will be exempt as per official exemption in the email ... on account of shop closure).
|Winter Geisha £6.00|
|Scaredy Cat £2.40|
|Alley by the Lake - exempt|
|Quiet Town - exempt|
|3 Little Witches - exempt|
|Autumn Leaves - exempt|
So that makes it £/$ 65.15 allowed for a carry over.
