SFS January and Starts #23-26

It's time to report for Stitch From Stash hosted by Epic Stitching. In the last month, I've discovered I really have zero discipline when it comes to spending on needlework stash. I am so impressed with other stitchers who report $0 spent for the month. Only through coupons and sales was I able to stay in the black. We do have a maximum $25 budget for each month, so I'll call it a win that I didn't spend more than that.

Month: January 
Spent: $22.79
Earned: $0 (No finishes this month, but I should have some next month)

What I bought this month: Three Lizzie Kate charts (I still need three Snow Belles and 10 Jingles to complete the sets)
DMC floss (this isn't all of it, just what I had on hand for the picture), a 30 x 36 piece of oatmeal Aida (not pictured), buttons for a Lizzie Kate chart I started back on the 14th, and a Little House Needleworks Calendar Girl chart (still need 10 to complete the set).
This is going to be harder than I thought.

Four more starts for the SDUCJFC:
All four of these are from the Disney Home: Pooh and Friends booklet from Leisure Arts.
#23: Pooh

#24: Piglet

#25: Tigger

#26: Eeyore

I'm stitching them all on the same piece of fabric.
Before I go, I wanted to show off my talented daughter's sculpting. Hope got a big package of Sculpy clay for Christmas, and she's been having fun with it lately.
Bacon and eggs, a glass of milk, pancakes with syrup and butter, peas and carrots, and a cheeseburger.
Each of these is about half an inch in diameter. I remain always in awe of her talent.
Thanks for reading and looking.
Blessings :-)
