Stitch From Stash - February

Month: February
Spent: 20.93

Carryover: 14.12

When I signed up for this year I kept thinking that I wouldn't use the bonuses because it sounded like too much work. What do you know I was right! I did it last month because it was easy. I took one look at what I stitched this month, tried to remember whether I had bought the chart more than six months ago, and just gave up.


As planned last month, I bought Canadian Hearts by The Victoria Sampler. It has all 10 provinces and the 3 territories. It also has the city of Victoria (because the company is based there, I guess), but I won't be stitching that. What it doesn't have is the one for the country. That's in the International Hearts I leaflet, along with a bunch of other countries that I have no plans to stitch. I don't think the kits are being made anymore, so the next part of this project is figuring out how to get my hands on the Canada chart.

So, er. Is there anyone out there who has the chart and is willing to lend it to me? I promise to stitch it asap and return it. *winsome smile*

I plan on starting these after I finish the Mill Hill Holiday Series as part of the Small SAL. So, in July :)

Great job on the budget for this month. 123stitch still sells the kits, I don't personally own it or I would send it... sorry
here's the link if you feel the need to purchase it, I think this is what you're looking for anyway.

Very nice pattern. Out of curiosity, what is the bird for Quebec? Is that a snow owl?

Good luck in finding your missing chart. I'm sure the *winsome smile* will do the trick! :)

If you don't get any bites on the chart, you might try EBay. I've found long out of print charts there. Usually the prices are pretty reasonable.

Good luck finding the chart! Unfortunately (or fortunately if I count my stash as it is) I don't own it.
