Stitch From Stash - April 2015

Hello again!

Here are the financial details of April's Stitch From Stash:

BROUGHT FORWARD - £38.98
APRIL BUDGET - $25 = £16.86 (at 01/04/2015 exchange rate)
EARNED - $16.00 = £10.79
AVAILABLE TO SPEND - £66.63
SPENT - £66.40
CARRIED FORWARD - £0.23 Phew!


Spending:
* £20.95 on fabric (loads of 16ct cream aida)
* £45.45 on new charts (a one-off extravagance during my weekend away as I would not normally buy full-priced charts)


I also bought other items, which are exempt from the budget, including some Rit dyes for dyeing my own fabric, and some iron-on interfacing, wadding, fabric and fabric glue for finishing off some smalls. You will hopefully see these being used in the not-too-distant future.

Qualifying projects worked on: (post to follow on 30th April)
* autumn
* winter
* canal crossing

Non-qualifying projects worked on: (post to follow on 30th April)
* OMG Tigger is out
* pretty little London
* ravenclaw

Qualifying projects completed: (all $4 each)

Playful Puss 1                       Playful Puss 2

Christmas Quacker

  Lizzie Kate April flip-it stamp


Non-qualifying projects completed:
* none

I admit to having a high-spending month in April so hope my SFS account won't be quite so close to the red in May!

Love and hugs

Love all your finishes! As long as you are in the black on the SFS budget, I think it is great and as we see...every cent counts!
