Sunday Stash and Piggy Bank Update




Nothing in and nothing out this week.  I finished the D4P top and pieced the back, so I plan to sandwich and begin quilting it today.  Its all from stash so that will be a good thing when its finished.

This week:  + 0 yards,  – 0 yards
This year:  + 26 yards,  – 22.75 yards
Net fabric destashed added in 2015:  3.25 yards


Challenge Update

Time to check in on the Second Annual Piggy Bank Challenge at Val’s Quilting Studio.

My bank pitcher is about half full, so I’m encouraged.  I know it looks like all dollar bills, but there are really a lot of coins hiding in there, too.  I’ve been emptying change and ones from my wallet whenever it gets too fat or at the end of the month.  So far, I still think I’ll spend it on a Craftsy class when we count it out in July.

I’m linking up to Patchwork Times, and leaving a comment at Val’s Quilting Studio.

  1. love the piggy bank challenge! It’s a great idea! My kids have little piggy banks and my son (9) will dust my computer for me for a quarter and he’ll put it in his piggy bank. He’s saving for a PS4 and he has about $100 left to go… Obviously he’s doing more than dusting my computer. 🙂

  2. Good idea regarding your piggy bank savings. I’m not sure what I will do with mine.

  3. You’ve done really well on the savings end of things. My plan is to buy a new iron.

  4. I am confused about how you are counting your stash. Is that 10.5 number the total for the year?

  5. Thank you for the awesome post.
