Monthly Recap - July 2021

It's hard to believe another month of 2021 has come and gone already! I'm stitching my third month of my Stitch from Stash challenge and have been doing really well thus far. Even though I've stayed within my budget since starting the challenge on 1 June, I did a much better job in July at curtailing my expenditures. I'll give more details about that later in the post. For now though, let's get to the details of how my stitching went during July.

Stitching Recap:

Number of Days Stitched:

I stitched a total of 25 days during the month of July. I had a few days in the middle of the month where I was in a bit of a funk and just didn't feel like stitching. Thankfully, I found my mojo again by the time the Stitching Olympics event kicked off on 23 July in the Stitch All the Things group on Facebook.

  • Merry Christmas by Cherry Hill Studio - started 1 July 2021
