Yes, I did spend some money this month. As I've noted before, while I have plenty of patterns, I don't have a lot of fabric or threads. So this month I bought some fabrics and ok some patterns too.
So here's the math:
Hold over from May: $102.63
Spent this month $90.01
Less the $25.00 for June and the $50.00 bonus
Leaves $15.01 to be subtracted from May's holdover
Balance to carry forward =87.62.
Here's the first purchase:
Early in the month I went to my local library where I meet with a stitching group. On the way out of the library they have a cart where there are books that people donate. Here I was innocently walking by the cart when this book jumped into my arms. It told me that I should support my library by buying it and taking it home with me.
I've just ordered the rest so I'll post about it later.
I've started adding the beads to Christmas Spirit- but I'm not happy with them. With the silver beads I've used grey thread to attach them- it looks like dirty snow- so I'm going to remove them and attach with white floss- if this doesn't look better I'll switch to the plain crystal beads. Not enough progress to post a picture.
Mostly I've worked on The Quiltmaker:
