Stitch From Stash - March Check In

I cannot believe that March is over.  And I haven't posted as I intended!  Oh well, April is another month.

Time to check in for the Stitch From Stash challenge hosted by Mel of Epic Stitching.  I have done very well!  No purchases this month, AND a finish!  Free pattern, and everything from my stash.

Item finished from stash 8.00

Thread 0.00

Total Spent 0.00


Balance Forward to April 68.14

I finished the January flower, "Carnation," a free pattern from Ellen Maurer-Stroh's flower of the month seriesAlyssa Feller of Brownie's Chair is hosting a SAL of this series.  I'm not managing a flower a month though, I think it will be a flower a quarter for me. lol

The fabric is a very pretty overdyed 28 count linen, soft greys and grey-greens.  It made me think of our cold, grey January weather, and that is why I used it.  I have no idea where I got it. :o)  I'm not sure how I will finish it yet.

Lovely stitching Lisa. I haven't stitched the carnations yet (I'm still behind as well!) but looking at yours makes me want to start now!
