Budget: $25 Canadian Dollars
I’m delighted to be able to take part in an online stitching group. Thank you, Mel, for allowing me to join. For anyone who doesn’t already know, you can find out about it here. You will however, have to wait until the end of the year to join in.
I live in Canada, and I am using Canadian dollars for my budget. Normally I would buy stash from the US, but our dollar is in the tank, and so anything I buy, I will probably buy in Canada, or else do a currency exchange. It just isn’t fun to order from the States right now.
Right at the beginning of the month, one of the sites from which I order, had a fabric sale. I kept the email in my inbox for a week, trying to decide if a) it was worth it to blow my budget and make an order the first month, or b) if any of the fabric on sale would actually suit one of the projects I have waiting in the wings–that I might not even get to in the next ten years! Fortunately for me, I wasn’t 100% happy with any of the choices…so I still have a budget.
The project I have chosen to work on is a rather large design that I started in May of 2013, and haven’t done much on since then. Other designs have taken precedence. I also didn’t make any progress this month, so far, because I’ve been working on another project that I am trying to finish. Next month I am determined to devote time to both.
