SFS - April

Stitch From Stash April Report

Month:  April
Carryover from previous months:  $125
Allowed spending:  $25
Spent:  $0
Earned:  $11.50
Balance:  $161.50

Finishes for April, yes there are 2!

First, here is my finished Fall Mandala.

I did less than half this before January, so I'm going to claim half the stitching credit.
Stitch count: 101 x 101 100% coverage - $15  x 0.5 = $7.50

I also started and finished a small LHN - Silent Night this month.  I used the recommended fabric and threads.

Stitch count 49 x 49 = $4

Total for the month: $11.50

Not sure what I'm stitching on next.  I have another small LHN ornament kitted up and ready to stitch.  I've also pulled out my Romantic Rose Garden Mandala UFO.
I have some tax paperwork to do before I can stitch again.
We have a severe weather warning here for the next few days and are expecting flooding rain if an east coast low forms.  It won't be as bad as the system that hit New South Wales last week.  I hope it clears by Saturday for DD's tennis semi-finals.

We had a relaxing week away just after Easter.  DH and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary on April 16.  It is DD's 14th birthday this Friday - May 1st.  We are going to see Cirque du Soleil - Totem on Sunday to celebrate both events.
