Balance Forward: $68.46 – $12 + $25 = $81.46
I didn’t do a huge amount of stitching this month – I started this pattern from Plum Street Samplers as a gift for someone.
I also picked up the colors I was missing for this Princess pattern from Tiny Modernist. I haven’t started stitching yet, but that’s on tap for this weekend.
The BIG thing I did this month was to finally sit down and take stock of all my DMC stash. I had reached the point where I had skeins of thread in my project folder, in my drawers, in my thread holders, in a big plastic ziplock bag, in my jewelry box … you get the idea. I sat down with a DMC Shopper’s checklist and slowly sorted through everything, put multiples into thread binders, put singles onto Stitchbow holders and in a three-ring binder, culled out some really old Anchor skeins that don’t match the current DMC color numbers, and then put everything in numerical order. It took hours – way longer than I expected, but at least it’s DONE now, and I have an inventory of what I do and do not have for future products. Organizing for the win!
