Ending balance: -$140
Not a good start to April! It still amazes me I spent that much in March; a little bit here, a little bit there all adds up (plus one big splurge at the beginning of the month when I received a bonus check from work).
So, I'm out of any giveaways for the remainder of the SFS session. I can try to stitch my way back to a positive number, but that's going to be hard to do. Plus, I would still probably add to my stash along the way.
I'm not sure if I should continue with it or not; putting a curb on my spending is a good idea, but, on the other hand, stitching stash and yarn are about the only things I splurge on. If I spend less than $25 a month, great, but if I have the money and an opportunity to get something I'd like to stitch, I usually do. I'll have to really think on that one.
So, what did I buy? Fabric and floss plus several charts from Etsy and some from my LNS. I haven't taken pictures of what I bought at the store, but here are a few charts I got from Etsy:
Pretty Little London from Satsuma Street (also Pretty Little Paris, New York and Barcelona and Arcadia)
Garden Cat from Satsuma Street
Monorail from Lovemystitch
Calvin and Hobbes from Hornswoggle Store
Do I have more charts than I will stitch in my lifetime? Probably. Will that stop me from buying more? Probably not. But the same goes for crochet patterns and yarn.
And, finally, here are my last two charts for Debbie's Insane Super Duper Ultimate Crazy January February March Challenge!
#89: I Never Finish Anything

#90: Not How Many You Finish

I find it funny that the center of both charts (my starting point) is the word "finish". A fitting end to the challenge! I'll be participating again next year, but only for January and February.
Tomorrow starts the Blogging From A to Z Challenge, so I'll see you tomorrow with A.
Thanks for reading and looking.
