Can't believe a month has gone already. I've just about stuck to budget this month. I am enjoying this challenge as it's really making me think about what I spend and what I really want rather than just buying on impulse.
Stitch from Stash Statistics :
Money available for Feb: £17.35 (including £2.35 remaining from January)
Secret Project: £4.99
Threads for Dolphin Project: £6.72
Sewing Books from Charity Shop: £3.98
Total Spent: £15.69 or 26.29 USD
Total Remaining for Next Month: £1.69 or 2.82 USD
We also had an exemption weekend during this month in which we had an extra 100 USD, approx. £60 to spent. This wasn't allowed to be included in regular budget or carried over. It was use it or lose it. I took the opportunity to buy some threads for my secret project, some needles and two q snap frames. Frames and needles are supposed to be exempt from this challenge but for me I want to be accountable for everything I spend, so I am including it in my budget else I would just satisfy my spending itch by buying lots of needles and frames and I wouldn't be saving anything. I also bought my usual Crafty Kitten Threads of the Month and the tortoise kit (which I also got a small frame for and some needles) that I showed in my last post.
The Crafty Kitten Spend: £24.25
Threads for Secret Project: £1.72
Tortoise Kit and Accessories: £4.71
Total Exemption Spend: £38.58
All in all it's been a good month and I've made lots of progress. I finished my secret project, completed a small mouse loft kit, worked on my Dolphin WIP and worked on my Lanarte Butterfly from my 2014 Crazy January Challenge.
Happy Stitching Everybody !!!
