Weekly progress & Stitching from Stash January summary

For the past week, I've been working on "A Victorian Christmas Eve" by Sandy Littlejohns.  I started this piece last August but this is only my 3rd week working on it.  I'm almost done with page 1 (of 6).
What the piece will look like when it's finished:
What it looked like when I picked it up at the beginning of the week:
 And after working on it this past week:

Today I also picked up Christmas Tree Farm from my local needlework shop that did the framing.  I opted for a "puffy" finish instead of using glass.
 Here's an artsy side picture that shows the "puff" better.  The LNS owner likes doing puffy framing for seasonal pieces but prefers using glass for piece that will be displayed year-round to keep them safe from dirt, pet hair, etc.
And for my Stitching from Stash summary for January:
Total spent: $58.99
Xmas gift money used on Stash: $43.08 (more gift money spent on non-stitchy stuff)
Total for January after gift money: $15.91

I've now got 5 pieces ready to go with fabric & floss so I shouldn't be spending much in the next few months unless I find magazines I can't do without.  I usually buy the digital copies which are cheaper than paper.


  1. Well done :) Great SFS report! Mine has just been posted too.

  2. The Christmas Tree Farm looks lovely framed!!
