February SFS

Sad to say.... I can no longer participate in SFS and here's why:

I. discovered. hand-dyed. floss.
And silk hand-dyed floss.
And... In looking through Instagram and other online sites I fell in love with the twisted band sampler,
and the twisted rainbow sampler...
And all the threads that go with it.

  I don't have a huge stash to begin with..I just sorta buy as I need. So that's how I justified buying it all. All of it. Guilt free. 

I won't tell you how much I shamefully spent this month, but I will tell you that I spent enough from the SFS budget to do me the next 2-3 years.  (Money-wise, not stash-wise, never can have too much stash). 
There's no way to recover either. I would be in the negative for eternity.  

So I will gracefully bow out and open the space for someone else that can adhere to the rules better than I.   I guess I can always hope for part B??!!

I will still follow and enjoy reading each monthly update from everybody else!

Happy Stitching!

  4. At least you tried and were honest about your splurge. I hope you're going to show us some pictures of your new stash when it arrives, then we can all drool over it too! :)

  5. I had the same experience with it! Luckily mine was just before Christmas (although I'm still in negative credit for SFS). I haven't bought the Twisted Band yet (it will happen), but the Twisted Rainbow is kitted up and just sits here taunting me at the moment with it's beautiful rainbow silks
