June stitch from stash update

Hello everyone,
It's time for my monthly check-in for Stitching from Stash 2015-A hosted by Mel at Epic Stitching.
This is the last month for part A. But the fun continues as I have signed up for Part B that runs from July-December.

Month: June 2015
Budget Amount $25.00
Spent: $100.02  [$51.92 for charts (includes those that haven't arrived) + $48.10 for threads (includes those that haven't arrived)] out of available $172.51 (monthly amount + previous carry forward)
Earned: $0.00 (yes dear readers this is the first month with no earnings)
Carry Forward: $0.00
Since I can't carry an of my budgeted amount + earnings into the second half of the year, I figured that it was time for a shopping spree.

First up is some new charts:

The Scarlet House - Strawberry House Pin Keep and Scissor weight
With thy needle and Thread- A Tisket, A Tasket
With thy Needle and Thread- Pinfeathers
Just Nan - Juliet the Bride Mouse

** I still have two more on order that haven't yet arrived.  Heartstring sampler  For spacious skies and an older bookmark booklet- Between the Pages.

and some threads and needles. There are some lovely GAST, GAST wools, Weeks Dye Works, Classic Colors and even a Valdani.

** I still have five more Accentuate metallic on order that haven't yet arrived.

It was a busy month. Dad had several Dr. appointments- he is doing well- no more home nursing - just another month of home physical therapy. We did find out that the pain he is having could be diabetic nerve pain- not pain from the surgery- so he started a new medication to see if it can help.

Thunderstorms hit our area - this time it loosened our printer connections. I was able to get it to print but the copy and scan features aren't working right now. So making a working copy of anything hasn't been possible. Hopefully I'll be able to get it fully working again.

Our swimming pool developed a tear in the liner- took a few days to get it repaired.

Bucky and Samantha had vet visits. Both are doing well. Their thyroid medication is helping. Bucky does have a liver enzyme that is running high - hopefully the supplement  the vet gave us will help. We will find out next month at his next visit.

I only worked on one stitching project this month.

May 2015 she was at 15750 stitches completed. Now at 18500 stitches completed! Only a little more to go before I have it finished.

July is looking like another busy month with Dad's Dr. appointments - at least one each week, DH's few medical appointments, Bucky's vet trip, and I just got a jury duty notice.

Until next time -
Have a wonderful day!
