Stitch from Stash report October

I've just made it for this month's report. I have had a few finishes too.

The birthday exchange in Needlecraft Haven shares threads to complete Little Blue Bungalow by Blue Ribbon Designs. I stitched mine this month and finished it. I use an old watch box as a needlebox for my holidays - it's the perfect size for my bobbins, tape measure and scissors. My needlebox now has a lovely new top :)

I also finished the Monthly Challenge - a little late as it's September's. It's from The Shop Around the Corner. Hopefully I'll get October's and November's done this month.

Challenge 9
I spent a little money too this month - just a little trip to The Fabric Guild with my Mum. I didn't really see fabric I liked but I did by a few finishing bits.

My new stash - £5.95

I hope everyone has had a good October - it will soon be Christmas shopping time, now there's a different budget to stick to :)


  1. Oh wow you have been busy!
    I love what you have done with the little watch box, how clever!
    Silent Night is a beautiful finish.


  2. Gorgeous finishes! I love that box. What a great idea. x

  3. Hello Clare,

    What a great idea with the watch box, always thought they were too good to just throw out, yours is so lovely. The Silent Night Hanger will certainly look fantastic in the Christmas Tree.

    Happy stitching.

  4. Silent Night is just beautiful. x

  5. Great stitching Clarew, I love the challenge finish

  6. Love the watch box topper.
    Nice stash for upcoming projects.
