Stitch From Stash 2015 - August Update

Month: August
Spent: $36.21
Earned: $0
Remaining Balance: $47.49

My husband and I had an appointment in San Antonio last weekend, just a few miles from Stitches From The Heart. He, being the driver for the day, was happy to indulge me!

The shop was humming with activity when we arrived, but there was a still a comfortable chair available for my husband while I shopped.

I ended up purchasing the Fall 2015 Cross Stitch & Needlework magazine, an AC Adapter for my Mighty Bright XtraFlex2 clip on light, a little plastic tube to hold my needles, another pair of Sew Mate scissors in Lavender (my favorite scissors, of which I own several pairs) and Sue Hillis' Post Stitches design, 10 Extra Pounds. I adore Sue's sense of humor and this chart made me giggle.

August was a whirlwind of activity! Our firstborn, our sweet baby boy, turned 18 this month. His party was an outright success and he was one very happy young man, which made all the preparations worth every second.

Prior to the party, we gave one side of our kitchen a mini makeover...new dishwasher, sink, faucet & food disposer. It all looks wonderful! The week after the party, my husband and I received delivery of our new bedroom furniture. I love the set we chose and it will look even better when our room is repainted. Speaking of which, we also finally scheduled the painters, so the house will be in disarray again soon. This should be our last big project for this year...whew! I'm starting to remember why building our last home made, in some ways, for less work than buying an existing home.

In the long run, it will be worth it, as we found a lovely home in a fabulous city and we're incredibly happy here.

September looks to be busy, as well. Our social calendar is filling up, my husband is in training for a work transition he hopes to make early next year (same company, different role) and, of course, there's the painting coming up. At least I have until November before the next birthday party!
