Stitch from Stash - January

Month: January 2015
Spent: 90p
Earned: Nothing
Carried forward to February: £24.10

I am going to be setting my stash budget as £25 UK pounds as I feel the cost of items are far higher in the UK and if I convert $25 to £ it will only give me about £15 per month.

I was extremely lucky to receive a secret RAK of two charts from KLT Charting - these are the ones I got:-

I'm very grateful to whoever sent them to me and would like to say a big thank you right here.

Here is what I spent in January

1 skein of DMC 780 from Hobbycraft - 90p

Keep stitching, smiling and destashing

Well done on spending so little :)

Well done! Buying but not overspending. I need to do my post with zero spending and no new stash (the order I have been trying to place since November still hasn't went through!!!) and hey ho one has to save to be able to spend. Need to figure out wether I'm gonna do the £25 budget too or convert ... will probably have to wait for few months before I'm allowed that kit I am craving for. Oh the joys of addictions.

Yay dumbledore! Lol that's the lowest actual spend I've seen!

I agree about your conversion, I'm doing £25 budget as goods in the UK are more expensive too, like your 90p skein. Good luck

Well done on only spending 90p this month Nic! It's annoying to have to pay so much for one skein of DMC - but cheaper than ordering from Sew and So and adding in a few extras to your basket lol!

Congrats on your RAK's!

Congrats on the tiny spend! I'm going for the £15 because that's roughly how much I actually have in real money! The mag subs and the thread club are exempt or that would put me up to £25 a month.
Loving your Rainbow band sampler photos. It looks gorgeous.

90p!!!! How do you only spend 90p in a month??? I just have to walk past a craft shop and somehow I've spent $90. You're amazing Nic!
