Stitch from Stash Part B - July report

It was great 6 months doing Stitch from Stash Part A - and now it's time to start Stitch from Stash Part B. The lovely Mel hosts this SAL on her blog Epic Stitching ; every month we have a budget of £25 for buying stash, and we can earn money with our finishes. It's all virtual money but great fun to see how much stitching I can do without spending (it helps reduce the bulging boxes of thread and fabric too :)
My budget start for July is :£0.00

Month: July
Spent: £9.00
Earned: £24.00 

My budget at the end of July is: £40.00

I apologise for not being around much this last month but I was having great difficulty in finishing Philippa's graduation gift. It was a case of two stitches in, one stitch out. I managed to finish it just before her big day - here's the finished piece (Lizzie Kate, Promise Me) you can see her graduation pictures on my previous post here. I earned £16 on this finish.

I have managed to finish the Four Season's SAL Summer Stitching on Needlecraft Haven. It should have been finished in June but it's now done and framed. Autumn stitching has started and needs to be finished by 30th September. I'm doing Jardin Prive's four trees from her free charts page and putting each into the frame as the seasons come and go. I earned £8 on this finish.

I have no progress to show on my Earth's Sampler, Santa's Village or December Drawn Thread but hopefully now I have completed Philly's gift I will be back on my rotation plan.  

I have made a few more scissor fobs - these are so simple to make. The hardest part is deciding which beads to use and holding onto the other end of the thread when starting off :)

 And I have a new start - another gift but the receiver is not online so I can share my progress - The Herb Garden by The Drawn Thread - I have spent £9 on this chart, the fabric 32ct ivory and DMC threads are all from my stash.

New start on The Herb Garden 
That's all from me - I hope everyone has had a good start to Part B, good luck with all your stitching and thank you for calling by :)
