My goodness, I can't believe it's time to do a Stitch from Stash update already!
Since my gung-ho St. Patrick's Day stitching I have laid my tapestry needles down and not returned!
I did not start any new charts this month, despite having every good intention to. I did dust off Quaker Turtles but I think I am going to have to start from scratch on that one.
I did spend some of the $25 budget this month: I bought an issue of Cross Stitcher because I just have to stitch this pillow or a portion of it!

So my grand total for the month is $14, however I do have carry over from January and February when I didn't spend any money.
I have been working a bit on my stool cover:
I'm loving the bright colours because the weather is still the pits. Unfortunately I have to rip out the last 6 rows because it's "wibbly" and I want it to lay flat. Fingers crossed I get it right next time. Someone is waiting for me to get it finished, because it offers a better vantage point to bark at people across the street.
I stitched the little bird at the top using a pattern in the February issue of 'Bustle and Sew' magazine. I used a thrifted cashmere sweater and it's so downy soft. So, to the person who washed their Lord and Taylor, 100% cashmere sweater and put it in the dryer and shrunk it to baby size - one person's junk really is another person's treasure!
Have a wonderful week and thanks for visiting!
