Stitch from Stash - March 2015 & the Sheep #3.2

Month: March 2015
Spent: £0
Earned: £0

Dear all,

This is a bit of a sad post ... remember I mentioned my hope to get Ember II done ... well it is still in the works. I did not manage to complete it before I left mum's. (No purchases either!)

Furthermore I have difficulty picking it up to stitch. I feel slightly stitched out on that project. After stitching pretty much non stop since beginning of January I feel a slight tug towards other projects. Even those that I had no desire to stitch for awhile. I'll update you in my Wipocalypse post (hopefully tomorrow). I might have even earned a little on one of them, but will put that into the next Stitch from Stash update.

I also somehow found myself stitching on 14 count for most of this week ... after a day at work my eyes could not see the little holes.

Sadly, Alice and Dodo have been put off for another month due to the lack of monies in my bank ... I had to lend some money, so even with the pay will have a somewhat tight month. But surely the more I delay the gratification of a purchase the better I will feel getting the project.

Sheep #3.2

The next two hundred stitches:

400 stitches

I know, I am really behind but should be catching up soon. I absolutely loving stitching it! (as long as it is daylight) This time I somewhat started from the centre going out ... rather than picking up from the border.


P.S. I spent this morning repotting orchids, so slightly exhausted.

Sheep #3.1 ... a week and 2 days late

Hello all,

Apologies for being late yet again. But so you know we have started up the next sheep for the SAL. And it is 'Simplicity'. This is my first 200 stitches:

And a little closeup:

I am currently up North visiting family and stitching like mad on 'Ember II' which I was hoping to gift to mum this visit ... but so far I am loosing this battle. Though I am getting close. Two colours left on the right side (last 3rd). Mind one of them has quite a bit of stitching.

Once I am done with this I will definitely catch up with the sheep. I have missed the little fellas...

I was discussing with mum recently ideas for what my brother could potentially do for his egg competition... I have suggested sheep ... but unfortunately the idea did not take.

Till soon,
