Saving Pennies

Click the picture to read more!

The challenge is out there - the gauntlet thrown by Val's Quilting Studio.  A terrific idea on how to save your coins for some future sewing purchase.


Now I distribute my loose change into three piggy banks for my grandkids and I don't want to take away from that.  So I am setting myself to a higher challenge.  I will throw a dollar or two or more into my lock box each week.  I really want THIS.

Won't you join in?

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Your piggies are so cute! I do the same thing for my grand kids. Only my piggies aren't as cute as yours.

  2. That's a really cool machine you linked to there in your post. I can see why you want it. I am fascinated by long arm machinery; almost as much fun as welding, I bet !~!

  3. You go girl! When you get that machine, you won't be employing your long armer any more.

  7. go you with the big goals. I am seriously considering taking on this challenge as well. We already save change but a jar for dollars sounds like a great plan.

  8. I'd love to join in. I already put my spare change in a bag in my desk….maybe I'll plunk a dollar or two in each week, too. Thanks for the idea!

  10. I read a few of you save change for your grandkids...I'll have to jump on the bandwagon as mine gets older! Sharon I'm so glad you joined the challenge and bet you CAN save for the Rocking longarm!

  11. Girl, I tried that machine at Paducah this year and it sews really nicely! I was totally surprised when I saw the price. If you get one, I think you'll be really happy with it!

  13. Hmmmmm.....because I never go out without Mick I never carry money. Maybe I'll just help him clean his pockets out and get me a lock box with a key....giggle.
