Stitch From Stash - January

Month: January
Spent: 14.95
Earned: 6

Carryover: 16.05

I bought one fat quarter of 25ct white lugana, so I'm not bothering with a picture.

I'm not quite sure I've got the calculations for my "Earned" amount right, but this is how I counted it:
$2: Mill Hill
$4: Midnight. The actual stitch count is 66x192 which would be ~113x113 if it was a square. But since there has to be at least 75% coverage and I don't think this design was 75% I downgraded it to the next lowest category.

In something that bodes ill for the rest of the year, I've already picked out my February purchase. Did you know that The Victoria Sampler Hearts series is now available as a chart instead of as kits? I've been holding off on buying the kits since I wasn't willing to spend that much money on something so tiny. But I spotted the International Hearts chart at my LNS when I went to buy the fabric. The owner actually told me that there wasn't one for the Canadian provinces and territories but I checked online on a hunch and it does exist! I'm a bit surprised she didn't check herself. Lost that sale since I'll be getting it online now :)

The question is: Why wouldn't there be one of Canadian provinces? Isn't The Victoria Sampler Canadian?

Just got a look at the hearts in question and they're so cute.

No photo of a white piece of fabric? How disappointing! Most of my progress photos look like that!

I love the hearts! Great job on the budget too.

Sometimes you just "gotta" buy. LOL

The hearts are very cute.

Well done on sticking to your budget and earning extra.

Wow you would think that the shop owner would have at least checked before sounding so positive that they didn't exist. Good for you for looking.
