Stitch From Stash April Report

It is time for the April report, since it is due on the 28th and I waited last minute again.  I went over my budget this month.  I spent $31.95, however $6.95 comes from my carry over budget. I did not break the bank but I know I could do better.  I got a pattern from Stoney Creek, a series I am collecting, and a piece fabric from Silkweavers.  I won an auction from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie. That one caught me by surprise, because I usually do not win, lol!

I do have a couple more birthday presents to show. 

 Heidi send me Mill Hill Midnight Pumpkin and a piece of white lugana fabric.  Thank you Heidi!
 Glenna send me a birthday card and 2 skeins Weeks Dye Works in Sweet Potato and Ocean.  She send the card and skeins from the goodness of her heart.  Thank you Glenna!

Now on to the Stitchy news. First is Sunflower Sampler in its frame.  I love how it turned out.  

I do have a finish, Little Miss Sunflower.  I love this one too.  I am looking for a sunflower fabric so I can hang it up in my bedroom.  I am having troubles finding some.

I did not stitch on my April Calender girl yet.  The package came in with my birthday packages, and I didn't notice it had arrived until a couple days before my birthday.  I even send a note to my shop owner and to my embarrassment, I had it all this time.  I had started on CCN Snowmen Trio.  I want to get it done this weekend, but I think I had twisted my knee. It has been sore all weekend and walking on it has been torture at times.  I don't think the doctor be able do anything except tell me to stay off my leg.  I decided to update my blog and finish the snowmen tomorrow, then to April girl.

Now a throwback picture.  While I was at my aunt's for Easter, she had a new family picture.  She had found a trio frame, and put my sisters and my high school Senior pictures in the frame.  It came out gorgeous!  

That is all for now.  Have a good week!

Love the Sunflower finishes. That is my favorite flower. I really need to get that LHN pattern. I love the snowmen trio one also. They are another favorite of mine. I hope you had a wonderful birthday and that your knee is nothing too serious. Thanks for visiting my blog. :)
