Stitch from Stash May

Stitch From Stash Group 2014
Mel from Epic Stitching started a Stitch From Stash group to encourage us to stay on a budget of $25 or less per month for cross stitching.  Click the link to see the list of blogs that are participating.

My carry over from April was zero for a total budget of $25 this month.  Here is my check-in for May:

Amount Spent:  $25
$20 - 3 charts from The Cottage Needle

$5 - Fulton Mansion chart from the Buy & Sell Cross Stitch Supplies Facebook group

New Starts from Stash: "O" is for Owl, Winter Witch, Santa's 12 Days of Christmas (Day 6), Peter Polar Bear, Frank-N-Stein.

WIPs or UFOs worked on: Christmas Ark, Universal Unity, Fall Welcome, Santa's 12 Days of Christmas (Day 6), Cut Thru' North Pole House, Thankful Critters, Canyon Waterfall, Majestic Eagle, Stained Glass Nativity, "99", Orange Poppies, Harley-Davidson, Very Scary Mystery Sampler, Alice from Resident Evil, Bird Nest (No 2). 

Finishes: "O" is for Owl, Winter Witch, Frank-N-Stein, Peter Polar Bear.

What I was tempted to buy but didn't buy this month:
"The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt, kit by Riolis on eBay
"The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt
Aurora Cabin, kit by Dimensions Gold Collection on Amazon
Aurora Cabin, Dimensions Gold Collection kit
This kit was on sale on the Dimensions website with a coupon code, but ended up being cheaper on Amazon with free shipping.  Not yet but some day I really want to stitch these designs!

Aurora Cabin is lovely, I could just imagine being snuggled up in there with a lovely fire stitching away with friends.

Oh my, this is some great new stash, and for not too much money. I love the houses by Nancy Spruance and will stitch one of the two I own this year. I'm already looking forward to starting it.

You certainly worked on alot of your WIPs this month, you deserve the new stash!

I love the mansion design, will you do the blackwork or the colour version?

What lovely new charts. The Kiss looks difficult but what pretty colours.

Love the new designs and well done for resisting both designs. The Dimensions one is beautiful!
