Piggy Bank Challenge!

IMG_0622

Through Sharon’s Blog (http://vroomansquilts.blogspot.co.uk/) I heard about the Piggy Bank Challenge run by Val at Val’s Quilting Studio (http://myplvl.blogspot.co.uk/).  Each year Val starts the fund and then on July 6th the following year opens and counts the pennies and it is put towards something Quilty!  I love these sorts of challenges so have signed up for this year.

I actually have a Piggy Bank too.  This was my Grandma’s, who taught me to sew, sew it seems quite approiate to be using it for this challenge.  He has a very unusal name too, Piggy!!!!!!!!!!!

So as you can use coins or bills I thought I would start off my fund with a good amount so have added £10.  The rest of the year it will be coins!!!!  That’s of course until the Boys need change for something!!!!! 

I haven’t really decided what I want to buy with the money saved but of course there is always plenty of fabric I would like!! 

If you would like to join in hop over to Val’s to see the rules and the button is on my sidebar.  Thanks to Val for coming up with this great idea which is now in its fifth year. 

Let’s get saving.

Hugs, Susie x

    I’ll join you in the piggy bank challenge. I have always saved my coins and since I am not home, my “bank” at home is untouched and I have started a new one down here!! I’ll be feeding the pig regularly 😀
