Stitch from Stash - February

Month: February 2015
Brought forward from January - £24.10 + February £25 = £49.10
Spent: £37.90
Earned: Nothing
Carried forward to March: £11.20

I couldn't resist treating myself to some of the gorgeous threads from Jodyri Designs and three charts from Papillon Creations.  I also bought some fabric from Willow Fabrics when they were having a sale.

The first photo shows a theme pack of threads I got from Jodyri Designs.  It's the Butterfly and Moths thread set.  The colours from left to right are:-  Purple Emperor Butterfly, Chinese Moon Moth, Emperor Moth, Millonia Paradise Moth, Atlas Moth, Blue Morpho Butterfly, Green Birdwing Butterfly, Swallowtail Butterfly, Madagascar Sunset Moth and Peacock Butterfly.

The next photo is a selection of threads that I loved the colours for and just had to have.  From left to right they are:-  Mardi Gras (Silk), Lavender Fields, Kingfisher, Jaded Amethyst and Tanzanite Nebula.

As always I was so pleased with them and can't wait to stitch with them.

My next purchase was some charts from Papillon Creations.  I have admired Around the World in 80 Stitches for a long time and I think it will be a great way to use some of my gorgeous hand dyed threads.  Unfortunately I can't find a stock photo for this chart and don't want to use someone else photo without there permission but I will link here to the gallery of completed stitches.

The second chart I got from them was Celtic Beauty.  Again I think this chart could lend itself nicely to hand dyed threads.

And last but not least I also purchased Celtic Warrior.

My final purchase this month was some fabric from Willow Fabrics as they were having a sale.  I got a full metre of 28 Count Jazlyn in Mushroom for £15 which I think is about half the price it would normally be.  It's a lovely neutral colour and will lend itself to lots of different projects.

All in all an amazingly good haul and I stayed within my budget!

Keep stitching, smiling and destashing!

Great stash additions Nic! The threads in the moths and butterflies set are gorgeous, I can't wait to use them myself! Lovely charts from Papillon Creations, I have ATW in 80, doubt I will ever stitch it but it is a handy reference tool lol.......

Well done on staying within budget and still getting some lovely stash. I got fabric from Willow this month too. I just love their colours.
The Jodyri Threads are gorgeous too. I am in a quandary about whether to continue with the club though, her post office seem to lose mine so many times! I feel guilty having to ask for replacements!

I love Papillon Creations' patterns. Castle in the Air was the first SAL I ever participated in (after the fact lol) Can't wait to see what your projects will look like stitched.
