Stitchy Spending Month

This last week of March my hubby and I are enjoying a stay-cation., We have agreed to allow each other as much Man Cave time and stitching time, respectively, as possible. My hubby also promised to take me to a fabric store. As the trip progressed, March officially turned into Stitchy Spending Month.

I was overwhelmed in the fabric store and my hubby was no help. I got 4 pieces of fabric, a new pattern, and a few baby bibs for women at work who are having babies.

We also went to a Vera Bradley Outlet store and I got a few bags that I am going to use as travel cases for my projects. I don't want to have to pack and unpack each week as I go through my rotation, so now I have a bag for each project. 

While in the car I mentioned to my hubby that I would love a stand for my HAED work. I think it would let me stitch faster and longer. So he told me I never spend any money on myself, buy the stand. I have placed an order for the Needlwork System 4 lap stand and Q-snap holder, and I can't wait! I know it will take a little while to teach myself to stitch two handed, but I'm sure I can do it and it will speed things up. 

I think I have spent my stitching budget for the rest of my life in one day, but I am a happy person!

Here are some updates on my projects...

And, of course, since I am now officially a Crazy Stitching Woman, I have started yet another project, a birth announcement for a dear friend. I am planning to give it to her for the baby's first birthday.
