I added a tiny bit more, but I had to try something new, so I started something else. After three nights of stitching, I have used so little floss that there is no point to a photo.
I have spent much too much time online shopping. I felt guilty, till Sunday when the prices shot back up. Then there was much less guilt. But as they say - the party is over. I got one new pattern, and that was it.
I am going to go back to - Use it up, Wear it out. And I need to add, go back and finish a few of those projects that are not finished.
I did do something interesting this year - I kept track of what I was spending monthly. Not things like grocery or utilities or insurance. But things I buy online, things I buy at the local store that is not food. I kept track of gasoline - fast food - and haircuts - repairs. Where does the money go? Just to get a monthly total. I learned there are really large swings in what I spend from month to month. I had a month that I went to the movies a few times - I spent the least that month, even though I was actually out more, and I felt like I was spending more. I didn't do it to the penny, but I wanted to see trends. I will probably try to do it again - and see if I can get the numbers to be more even from month to month. It is not exact, but when I spent 5 times what I spent the month before - there should be a reason. And stuff like that happened, more than once.
