Stitch From Stash - September 2015

Good morrow gentle-folk!

It's coming towards the end of yet another month so time for another SFS report. Here are my September figures then:

BROUGHT FORWARD - £31.90
SEPTEMBER BUDGET - $25 = £16.29 (at 01/09/2015 exchange rate)
EARNED - $28.00 = £18.25
AVAILABLE TO SPEND - £66.44
SPENT - £52.44
CLOSING BALANCE - £14.00


Spending:
* £4.99 on Christmas cross stitch magazine (although I'm tempted not to count this as I haven't actually seen the magazine since my mum "borrowed" it the day I bought it!)
* £36.25 on fabric (mostly for some 2016 Crazy January Challenge starts)
* £11.20 on threads for two new starts (which you will find out about in October)

I also bought frames for Polar Bears, My Treasure and Playful Puss 1 and 2 but this spending is exempt from the SFS budget.


Challenge projects worked on: (post to follow on 1st October)
* a tatty friend
* winter owl
* spotted owls


Other projects worked on: (post to follow once I have completed a 10 hour stint)
* OMG Tigger Is Out


Projects completed: $4, $4, $12 and $8 respectively
NB I forgot to count the August stamp last month so am counting it now.

Ravenclaw                            Polar Bears


Yes, I splurged a little this month but apart from a few threads I've got everything I need for my 2016 Crazy January Challenge starts. Which means I'm more or less free to buy whatever I wish with my October, November and December budgets. Q: Now, what do I really need? A: Nothing really! How boring!!

Happy stitching!
