Stitch from Stash for August

I can't believe I haven't blogged for a month - I seem to be slowing down in many things; stitching, reading and blogging. We've had quite a sad time too as two weeks ago we lost our lovely Ruby, I haven't felt like doing much at all. I have added bits of news to my Aimetu blog and hopefully my mojo all round will return soon.

Anyway here is my report for August - I actually spent some money this month on gifts, exchanges and a little stash replacement.

  • the Drawn Thread - September
  • CCN - North Pole Post Office
  • Disney (kit)
  • Dusty's RR chart provided
  • Biscornu chart, free online
  • Monthly Christmas Challenge - Little Snowman by Wool n Sails
  • 28ct white
  • 14ct white
  • DMC colours as required for charts
  • Backing board for Eeyore
  • Buttons for Holiday exchange
  • Stuffing for Holiday exchange
  • Fabric for Monthly Challenge
  • Cording for Monthly Challenge

Additions to Stash

10 DMC skeins to replenish stash
Frame for Eeyore
Chart and speciality thread for Holiday exchange
Two CCN Santa Village charts (already promised to purchase from a friend)

 Total spend £27.56

I can't share all my work as the Holiday Exchange has not yet arrived with my partner and the monthly challenge reveal is at the end of the month. Whilst I have purchased Eeyore's frame I have yet to assemble it so again no photo and I have not yet finished September - The Drawn Thread. It looks like I need a little kick start this week as there does seem to be a lot needing my attention.

Here are the items I can share:

August - The Drawn Thread
assembled after the close of last month's SFS
North Pole Post Office - CCN
Eeyore - to be framed
July Monthly Challenge
gallery opened after close of last months SFS
Dusty's Welcome RR - Needlecraft Haven
I stitched the right side of the alphabet and
the bottom panel

Please send positive thoughts my way so I can get stitching, reading and blogging again - thank you for calling by today x x


  1. Oh Clare , my RR looks wonderful !! I love the Eeyore !! He is my favorite. Was this a kit or a chart ?? I would love to stitch it. Your other stitching is lovely as usual. As far as mojo s go mine is still in hiding mode. I know you miss Ruby terribly. (((hugs)) and much love !!

  2. I;ve been away from the computer a lot myself Clare, and must have missed that you had lost Ruby. I'm so sorry to hear that.
    Some great stitching there. I love the Drawn Thread one

  3. I think we've all gone into a slump one ay or another recently, I know I find myself just sitting and thinking more at the moment, not necessarily a good thing!

    The Drawn Thread looks super and I love last months challenge, I've only just finished mine, better set too with this months...

  4. Love your newest projects, Clare--especially the August DT finish. I may have to stitch that one myself as blue and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations :)

    Enjoy the rest of your summer...

  5. Awe, I love the Eeyore design! So cute. And the drawn thread August is lovely!

  6. I am sorry about Ruby Clare. Losing a pet is like losing a family member {{{hugs}}}

    Lovely stitching and finishing. Dusty's RR looks gorgeous.

    Well done with the Stitch from Stash.

  7. Clare, so sad to read about the loss of Ruby. I think we all get very attached to out pets.
