September Stitch from Stash Update

Hello everyone,

It's time for my monthly update for stitch from stash 2015 part B hosted by Mel over at epic stitching. You can see all the rules here.
This month it's more about stash than stitching.

Month: September 2015
Budget Amount: $25.00
Spent: $32.69  (JN Witchy Sister Mouse with Fabric, DMC Diamont threads and TW Designworks Knotwork Bookmarks II)
Earned: $0.00
Carry Forward: $ 22.29  ($29.98 from last month + $25.00 budget - $32.69 Spent + $0.00 Earned)

I did stitch another item for the exchange but I can't show it until the October or November update...Hopefully it will arrive quickly. I will claim the earning credit then as well. 

I did put a few more stitches in  this bookmark from the booklet Page by Page CSB-182 Cross My Heart Inc.
18ct China Pink Aida
DMC Threads
Stitch Count: 24 x 105, 2 over 1
Cross Stitch, backstitch, long stitch, French knots

I still have a few more grapes and leaf to finish as well as all the backstitching.

Some new stash...

We've been busy outdoors as the weather had started to turn and winter is coming. The leaves have begun to turn, we've seen the increasing flock of turkeys, and this morning when we awoke, our field was white (frost not snow yet!).

Here is a close up of a few of the turkeys.

Bucky and Sam went to the vet for a nail trim as it was close to our favorite orchard. Our apple trees got hit by a late frost so this year we had to try a few of the new varieties. It was such a nice treat.

That's all for now.
Until next time....Have many wonderful days.
