September SFS

Hello again friends it's time for another SFS.  SFS is hosted by Mel from Epic Stitching and is designed to curb our spending and stitch from our stash!

September: $25
Carryover: $50
Used: $19
Total: $59

What did I buy?  This one was a little difficult to determine because it was part of a package deal.  A few months ago Brigid Ashwood had a kickstarter for a calendar of her designs.  Well I love Celtic designs and when I saw that it also included a Celtic wolf cross stitch I had to go for it.  Then I decided to just go for broke and get the coloring book too.  Altogether it was $45 + shipping and the pattern is from heaven and earth designs so I figured the pattern is about $19 which is their normal price.  I was bummed though because they said it was an exclusive design but it's actually the wolf guide design on the site just a little smaller.  It's okay though because I'm going to change it to match the picture in the calendar.

This is the cross stitch:

And this is the calendar pic:

I will probably just change the designs of the 4 medallions.  The coloring book patterns will probably get changed into cross stitches too later down the road.

I did some stitching as well.  And actually I got a lot done on Paradise.  I feel like I'm making great progress on it finally and have almost another page finish.

Last time I only had s few letters:

Now I have more color:
Close up:

The row row of stitches above the random stitch is where the page ends.  I should have it done in a couple of days.  

I also made some progress on Halloween banner green although not as much.

Last time:

This time:

I should take pics with my dresses on more often lol it creates a fun background!  Speaking of which I can see my schoolbook in the background as well so that's my cue to get back to work.  Thanks for stopping by!  I'll see you next month!
