Stitch From Stash - January 2016 Recap

January was a good month for me.  I had 3 finishes that I get "credit" for, and very few purchases.  I'm slowly but surely working my way out of the red.  :)

Opening Balance =  (51.51)
Finishes = $26.00
Purchases = $6.01
Balance Forward = (31.52)

A new silhouette model = $10.00
A new quilt series model = $11.00
A new modern dictionary model = $.500

Sadly, I'm unable to share pictures of any of the finishes with you yet, as 2 of the 3 are at my finishers.  Once she's done with them and I release the designs I'll share the pictures here.

I proud of myself this month.  My purchases were very minimal...some floss that was needed to continue working on design models and a package of small bags ($1.99 less a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby!) to store my overdyed threads in.  My total expenditure for the month was only $6.01!

I currently use DMC Stitchbows (instead of bobbins) and it's difficult to use them for my overdyed threads because most of those already come in pre-cut lengths vs. one piece that is multiple yards long like DMC floss, hence the need to buy the bags.

Now, that's not to say I haven't added several things to my wish list and drooled over fabric when I received a 25% off email from one of the sites I buy from.   All-in-all though, it was a successful month.  I'm positive I can continue this trend!

Are you on your own "stash diet"?  If so, how are you faring?  Feel free to share in the comments below.  

Until the next time...Happy Stitching!
