And so 2015 begins : there are a few changes this year, mainly it's split into two six months and as January starts the first of those here's my first Stitch from Stash 2015 report:
My budget carried forward to February is: £41
I will be using English pounds £ as my currency throughout the year. I am hoping to use much of my stash again including finishing fabrics and trimmings although this year they are not included in the budget. Each log I will count anything up to that day, if it's stitched but is a gift or exchange I will count it but full details and pictures will be in my following SFS15 report.
My stitching from January 1st to January 22nd was:
Baked Goods - Lizzie Kate - those of you following my blog or Jo's Gifted Gorgeousness will have already seen it - it's here if you missed it. The chart was a gift from Barb; I used 28ct ecru fabric and DMC threads both from my stash. To fill the ornament I used my 2014 orts so stuffing was free and the backing fabric and cord were also from my stash - a completely free finish. I earned £4 on this finish.
I have finished another Lizzie Kate design which is a gift so I am unable to share this month. I earned £8 on this finish and will share all the details as soon as I can but all fabric and thread was from my stash and I bought the chart in 2014.
I have also finished the bookmark required for the Needlecraft Haven Autumn Meet Up Exchange. Again I am unable to share any details other than the chart was free online and again fabric and threads were in my stash, as was the backing fabric - another completely free finish. I'll be able to share this next month as the exchange date is February 4th. I earned £4 on this finish.
I don't have any other finishes this month but plenty of starts. I have another gift, the NH monthly challenge and Valentine's Exchange for Needlecraft Haven which are all pieces I cannot share just yet but I have been working on my Santa's Village tablecloth.

I have also been working on my Drawn Thread October piece. This is my weekend work on my rotation plan as it then fits with UFO stitching on Needlecraft Haven with Julie and Mr Stick. Weekend's are my slowest stitching time but I am getting bits done slowly.
