October Stitch from Stash Update

Hello Everyone,
Thanks so much for all your kind comments.

It's time for my monthly update for my stitch from stash hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching.
October has been a busy month - We celebrated 16 years married in early October. DH surprised me with two Blackbird Designs hidden in a card - Reward of Merit Pinkeep In Full Glory, and Reward of Merit Pinkeep Peace Rose.

DH is now home recovering from his total hip replacement surgery.  His staples come out at the end of the month and then he will start outpatient therapy.

I did get a small amount of stitching done - I found this design all kitted up - I don't know why it took me so long to work on it.

Mel offered us Special Exemption for the Nene Thomas charts at Heaven and Earth Designs that were to be retired on October 15th. I took advantage of this exemption- adding to my already sizable stash of Nene Thomas charts.

Lullaby, Prophecy, Lord of Snows , Mini Power and Prestige, Mini Astranaithes, Mini House Divided, and Mini Lovers (left this one out of picture).

I suppose that I shouldn't admit to the HAED Nene Thomas Charts that I already have... but here goes: Mini Queen of Shadows, QS Direwood, Mini Asiria, Mini Chorus, Storykeep Winter Wings Owl, QS La Victime, QS Whispers, Storykeep Dragon Moon, QS Storykeep Winter Wings, A Chance Encounter, Memento, Firemoon, Storykeep Ravens, and Corsair Daemira. Just a few - LOL!!!

Some of these will be perfect to work on this winter. and yes, winter is coming - October 19th we had our first day of  snow flurries - a bit early this year.

So after my online shopping for Heaven and Earth charts, I did a bit more online shopping - this time at The Floss Box. I ordered biscornu pack #32 (which consist of biscornu patterns #549 to #556) and 2 other biscornu patterns: #599 and #656.

 I spent a total of $12.50

Mel also offered us a bonus amount of $50.00 to count before our monthly budget. I'm going to save that for next month.

Here's a few more smiles from Bucky (left) and Samantha (right).

Until next time,
Have a wonderful day!
