It's always good to save some money for a fabric splurge, so I've joined Val's 5th Annual Piggy Bank Challenge! The goal is to fill up my piggy bank with spare change, and maybe a bill or two for the coming year. Then next July we count up our savings, and figure out what to buy!! It's not too late if you want to join in! I don't have a very exciting piggy bank, but it's functional. I hope to fill it a couple of times in the coming year. I"m off to a good start.
On Sunday, Dh and I went wildflowering (again). I'm amazed by how many flowers are still out there. We don't usually bother looking for them after about the end of May.

Our next stop was a BBQ joint that we've driven past many times. I'm glad we finally stopped! And then we went to an antique mall that I haven't been to in ages. I'm on the hunt for hankies, after seeing this quilt on Facebook. - Stitching is My Happy Place
I also enjoyed looking at old sewing machines. I'd love to get a treadle machine some day.
In other stitchy news, I'm on another quilting blitz, so I'll have quilts to share soon. I've finished quilting three small ones so far, and will be working on binding at a sewing group tomorrow. They're all packed up and ready to go. I guess I better go get some sleep so I can get an early start in the morning.
Keep on stitching...... Sunny
