Are You Up for a Challenge?



I've signed up with Val's Quilting Studio for a challenge of a different kind!  

 Saving all the found, lost and accumulated change you come across on a day to day basis in a piggy bank or vessel of your choosing to spend, at a later date, on some quilt and stitchery pleasure.
 I'll be saving towards some floss and Aida cloth as well as quilt fabric (not sure what yet).
 Just think, a lovely little (or large) stash next July.
 Every penny counts.
Join the challenge and see how much you can sock away!  
 Grab a jar, bottle or bowl and start saving!

Happy Stitching ")

The Time Has Come...



It's been quite a spell since we've talked. I needed to step back and regroup.
I think I've got a handle on things as best I can now.  I've been reading your posts and have laughed and cried with some of you, as well as being in awe and inspired by many of you.
The plain truth is, I've missed you,
  sewing, stitching and sharing.
Speaking of sharing pop on over to  By the Pricking of My Thumb
for a link to a spectacular GIVEAWAY!
