This month's TUSAL has a tiny bit of red from this month's biscornu. I really need to get cracking on that or I'm not going to have it done in time. But the heat is making me disinclined to do anything other than lie on the ground with a glass of water.

July SFS

Just a brief report on my Stitch From Stash activities this month. I spent $3.85 on DMC this month. I also pruned my wishlist down. Usually my wishlist goes down as I buy things, but I went through thinking "will I actually stitch this or do I just want to stitch it". It was rather surprising how many things I could take out. And then I added a few things but we won't talk about that.

Spending so far is $73.48
I have $101.52 banked

Crochet On

I've mostly been crocheting away and while it's lots of fun it doesn't make for interesting photos. But it's the WIPocalypse so here's what it looks like now:

This month's question:
It’s halfway to Christmas. Do you start your holiday stitching this early? If so, what do you hope to accomplish this year?
I'm a chronic late starter. I always start something too close to the actual day. Take for example this year's Canada Day project: I started it on June 30 the day before! Needless to say it's not finished. On the plus side, I'll have next year's project finished extra early ;) On the negative side, I'll have forgotten by then.

I'll probably start my Christmas project sometime in November. I'm vaguely thinking of Jim Shore's 12 Days of Christmas, but we'll see if some other Christmassy design steals my heart before then.
