Hello everyone! I've made my first purchases of the year! But I stayed under budget so yay me! HAED is having another sale so I may purchase another chart but we'll see.
April Allotment: $25
Total left: $79.75
What did I spend it on?
Most of you have seen Rapunzel
I'm Facebooked Shelley the owner of Tilton Crafts about charting up a picture from one of her artists.
I also got the floss and fabric for Rapunzel but had a gift card from Christmas so it doesn't count for SFS.
Such pretty colors!
Thanks for looking in see you all soon with my next page finish!

Well it took some hard work but I have a bit to show you all :). First of all I'm really happy with how things turned out. As it happens I didn't count over to the E as I thought I had plenty of room from the last page. My E ended up at the very edge of the page border.
Moving on, any guesses what the title is about? We have sun!
See you next time!

Hey everyone I'm back again for gifted gorgeousness hosted by serendipitous stitching! In this SAL we have to stitch on something we received as a gift or are gifting to someone else. It is ten minutes til midnight. I'm still chugging along on Paradise which will be a gift for my cousin for her wedding. I have been stitching nonstop for almost 14 hours trying to get a page finish for this post and I just achieved it!! I don't know what it was about this page but it seems like it took forever! The next page we see 8 new colors! Last time we were here:
I've taken a break from school as it wasn't going well and I was burning out but I'm getting back in the swing of it. Turns out there were some grading errors.

Yep it's my birthday today! I'm turning 29 (ugh) and I'm all alone until my hubby gets off at 8. Luckily I have some stitching to do. I gridded my Rapunzel fabric last night and was going to start it today but then I'd have to switch the fabric on the scroll rods and that seems like a lot of work so I'm going to stitch on Paradise probably. I won't be doing hardly any stitching at the moment because I enrolled in school again and found out that each month it takes me to do my classes will be an additional $100. So I'm putting pretty much everything on hold so I can finish ASAP. Then I have more money for stitching! I have 5 classes but am focusing on composition right now. I have 9 papers to write but so far I'm almost halfway through (only written 1 paper so far though) and have a 95% in the class. Unfortunately I'm not very good at papers my only one I've written got a 71%. So hopefully I'll do better now that I need to have sources. No pics right now as I'll wait until I have something more substantial I just wanted to keep you all updated!
Until next time!
Until next time!

So I took all of your ideas into account and gray and green were about half and half. So what did I choose?
I went with gray mixed with a bit of dark purple. The fabric is still pretty light as I didn't want it to overwhelm the darkness of the pattern. And I thought the purple will pull out the purple of the pattern and the gray will pull out the black lace on her shoulder and in the bottom of her dress.
I was going for a storm cloudy look. Since Rapunzel still has long hair I wanted the background to reflect that. She hasn't been rescued yet and is stuck in her tower which is kind'be the storm before her happy ending. Made sense to me lol.
I thank you guys for all of your input it made the decision easier! I'm really fighting gridding my fabric now because I need to finish paradise!
