What it looked like when I picked it up at the beginning of the 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.
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.
