Budget $25
Spent $2
Balance $23
Brought forward from last month $25
Total Available $48
I did so well during the first half of the year that I'm doing my best to continue the trend!  I was in an exchange and wanted to send one of my own needleminders (that I make) so I went to Hobby Lobby to pick up a "charm" to make one with.  I did really good and only bought an extra pack of needles (which I found that I needed) and they were on sale.  Then we went to a couple of estate sales and I found a lovely off-white/cream/ecru LINEN tablecloth that I got for 50 cents!  For that price I could either decorate it as a tablecloth or I could cut it up for different projects.  I do have a tablecloth design that I've been wanting to do for my Mom.  We'll see what pops up after I'm done with the current model.
And speaking of that, I'm officially 1/3rd finished with the current one.  I'm 1/2 way through the second page and it's a pretty quick stitch so I'm pretty happy with how it's moving along.  After this one is done however, I'm going to be taking a break from model stitching for a couple of months and work on some of my own stuff.  I have a gift that needs finishing and maybe a Halloween design to get done too.
