I didn't really enjoy stitching this one to be honest. It had nothing to do with the motifs, they were nice and simple and could easily be done in two or three episodes of whatever we were binge watching at the time. It's the colours. They are more rusty-gold and brown as opposed to orange and black. It didn't make me feel all festive for Halloween. A couple of times I thought I would just stop and make small pillows out of the motifs I had already stitched and use the box for something else. Then I remembered how long it took me to find the box after I bought the pattern and was so excited to make it. I have put it away now, and am hoping that come October when I pull it out I will be excited again.
I have been stitching a few other things as well, but they are for the Tutti Fruity swap I am participating in so I can't show them just yet.
So, for my tallies: I finished one WIP; started and finished three small pieces in July. I did go over my $25 budget for July due to some long awaited cross border shopping, but it was worth it! In total I spent $55 on things like floss, linen, buttons, charms and finishing fabrics. No charts though, which I consider a good thing! I believe I have around $80 in carry-over from previous months so I'm doing well.
In other crafty news I finished a crochet pot holder.
