January Stitch from Stash update

Hello everyone,
It's a new Year and time for some new stitching from stash. Since I survived last year I signed up for Stitching from Stash 2015-A hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching.

Month: January 2015
Budget Amount: $25.00
Spent: $0.00
Earned: $2.00 (Pumpkin Fob) + 8.00 (Flurry Snowflake) = $10.00
Carry forward: $35.00

New Start and finish!

Pumpkin Scissor Fob © 2000 The Stitchworks, Ltd.
Fabric: 28ct Khaki (DMC 613)
Threads: DMC
Stitch Count: 25 x 23, 2 over 2
Cross Stitch, Back Stitch
Embellished with buttons from my stash as the buttons included broke when I took them out of the package.
I made the cording using DMC 920 and DMC Pearl 4130

Here is the back

Another Start and finish: Years ago I made Snowflake Merry into a little candy tote for a friend. So I decided this time to stitch this freebie - Snowflake Flurry©2003 Kreinik available here.
Fabric: 16ct White Aida
Threads: DMC Kreinik#4
Beads: Magnifica Beads
Stitch Count:69 x 55, 1 over 1
Cross Stitch, Long Stitch, Back Stitch, Beading, French Knots
I was hoping to have it finished before posting but I got a little busy with other things so hopefully I'll find some time this coming week to make it into a small tote.

So next I'm getting ready to stitch the next snowflake (Moe) and my Kreinik and magnificas aren't with my pattern... Now where did I put them.. Hmmm... I know I bought them... Oh well time to look for something else until they turn up.

Next I grab Skinny Mini Snow by Charland Designs - the threads and charms are with my pattern. All I need is my twilight blue fabric. So I grab my blue fabrics...still no twilight....I know I have some... maybe I put it with my grey fabrics. Hmmm.. I'll have to look later.

Still in the snowman mood I grab my project bag for DH follow-up Dr. Appointments.
Pattern - Bent Creek Sparkle ...check
Fabric.. Check
Threads... check
Scissors... check...
Needles? Oh no... I forgot to grab them. Luckily we didn't have a long wait... So I grabbed my needles for the next weekly visit and all I managed to get in was three stitches. Dr. was running on time.

And lastly one more snowman start.
