May Stitch from Stash Post

I didn’t post much this month but I didn’t feel like I stitched a lot either.  And despite the new Nora Corbett pixies coming out, all I bought this month was fiber I needed.  The puppies played with the ball of Perle cotton I bought and that gave me the excuse to go buy the Subtlety for the Star Trek quilt.  I didn’t go pick it up until I ran out of floss for the side piece of the antique purse.

wpid-20140528_212306.jpgThis is where I am on the side piece.  It doesn’t look like I’ve done much and there is so much more to do on that side.  This is now my travel piece but I’ve switched to a smaller purse which means I’ve been carrying paperbacks instead of stitching projects.  But I have a great new purse on the way from Think Geek – This is my Handbag of Holding…and it’s on sale right now…

So I did figure out why I haven’t worked much on the Fruit BellPull.  With the puppies, I have to put everything away immediately after I put my stitching down or they play with it.  Setting up to stitch a blended thread project is a pain so I’ve decided to leave it set up in an area where the puppies cannot get, or we believe they cannot get to.  I’ve actually got more work done on it since I’ve done that…

wpid-20140528_212141.jpgWell since Fruit Bell Pull moved, I needed something to work on in the TV room.  The next item up on the rotation was Fire and Ice, so I’ve been working on it but again, I’ve been spending more time on Android games instead of stitching.  I did do a few stitches though…

wpid-20140528_212113.jpgSo that is the report for this month…Except I almost forgot – total spending this month 2 cards of Subtlety and 7 skeins of floss comes to a total of 10.69 USD including sales tax.

Wipocalypse Check in for May

What designs do you wish you could find?  Actually there isn’t anything really missing in my stash.  I have a few items on my wish list but I can’t think of anything that is burning in my head screaming “Why can’t you find me?” Okay maybe a beagle picture I can customize but I’m sure I could find one if I actually hit Google.

If I’m 100% honest with myself there haven’t been any designs in several years that I had to run out and buy except Persephone and Cassiopeia from Mirabilia and Christmas Quilt from Emie Bishop.
At this point in my stitching experience if I really wanted a design I couldn’t find, I would create it.

So what did I work on this month?

Well, I went up quite a few levels in Candy Crush Dreamworld, still stuck on Candy Crush level 500,  lots of levels  in Pet Rescue, and 4 scenarios in Gems Journey.  I ran out of black floss for my needlepoint purse.  And I did get work done on my TW Fruit Bellpull although it doesn’t look like much.   As the weather warms up, I may put a quilt up on a frame outside. Then I may have something finished to show off next month.
