Mel @ Epic Stitching is hosting the Stitch From Stash Group. She challenged us not to spend more than $25 a month (18 € here in Spain) and to stitch projects we already had in our stash.

So, here it is my January report:

What I stitch from stash:

 - I finished my WIP Pirates Love Christmas.

 - I picked a UFO from my basket that has now become a WIP: Mary Wigham Sampler. It was collecting dust and I don't know why, when I started it I really wanted to stitch it but then I left it for another project. Now I'm determined to finish it!

Amount spent from my budget:

$3.15 (2,30 €) in a pack of 28 DMC bobbins for my flosses.

Leftover budget:

$21.85 (15,70 €)

Finally, thanks to SFS I found that I had a Mill Hill kit I bought last year in Creative Trends Exhibition which I had not even shown in the blog!! Isn't it the cutest thing you've ever seen?

On Thursday 30th starts this year's exhibition, Creative Trends Bilbao 2014 and there I will be to tempt myself with a lot of cute cross stitch charts, kits and flosses to carry home with me.

How will this affect to my budget? You will see it in February's report. xoxo

Hi dear bloggers (and welcome new followers)!

Hola queridas blogueras (y bienvenidas nuevas seguidoras)!

I'm very very happy because "The three wise men" bought me an annual subscription to Cross Sticher magazine!!

Estoy super feliz porque "Los Reyes Magos" me han comprado una suscripción anual a la revista Cross Stitcher!!

And now, the finish:

Y ahora, el acabado:

The stitching is finished but it's not finished at all because I want to mount it as a Christmas ornament.

El bordado está terminado pero no está terminado del todo porque quiero montarlo como un adorno de Navidad.

That's all for now... Have you joined my giveaway? Hope you have! Good luck everyone. xoxo

Esto es todo por ahora... Os habéis apuntado a mi sorteo? Espero que sí! Buena suerte a todos. Besos

Happy New Year everybody!

Feliz Año Nuevo a todos!

As I'm going to get part in "Stitch from Stash" I have bought some stash before it starts.

Como voy a participar en "Stich from Stash" me he dado un caprichito antes de que comience.

El número de Enero de la revista "Labores del Hogar"...

And it came with a gift! 20 skeins of DMC floss, you know they are my favourites!

Y venía con regalo! 20 madejas de hilos DMC, sabéis que son mis favoritos!

I also bought a DMC chart which I had seen a long time ago and that came with 4 skeins of DMC floss! Do you like it?

También compré un esquema de DMC que había visto hace tiempo y que venía con 4 madejas de hilos DMC! Os gusta?


But that's not all I bought. I bought another magazine with it's 20 skeins of DMC floss... (Prize 1)

Pero eso no es todo lo que compré. Compré otra revista con sus 20 madejas de hilos DMC... (Premio 1)

And another chart (different from mine) with its 4 skeins of DMC floss. (Prize 2)
