Second Hand Junkie February 2015

Carried over from January £40
February budget £25
Spent £12.50
Remaining budget £52.50

I didn't earn anything this month as the wedding sampler (see previous blog) was bought and started straight away.

I have completed page 2 of Starry Night but will wait until it's finished to count it.

Now what I bought!

Wedding Sampler £8.00 but was paid £26 to stitch it :-)
Two pieces of 27count Linda £3.50 for a Christmas penguin I'm planning to stitch on holiday next month.
Naughty But Nice Cross Stitch book £1.00 from charity shop.

Wedding Sampler

I was asked by a lady at work to make a sampler for her sons wedding. I don't normally take on commissions as I work full time so don't have a huge amount of spare time. I told her I would have a look for something suitable.

I had to go to Hobbycraft for some buttons for a couple of baby cardigans I'd knitted and found the perfect kit. I had a couple of days holiday from work so managed to complete it in eight days!

I washed and pressed it on Saturday and will give it to her at work tomorrow. She will get it framed herself.
