A Penny Saved

Olivia is helping sort the coins

thinking I should spend the money on cat treats

instead of saving it for long arm quilting...

this is one of many quilt tops

waiting and waiting to be quilted...

this year all my change is going to be saved

in the hopes of getting a few quilted


others can be primitive quilted by me

I'll let you know when that starts...

(insert skeptical looks here)

Large or small

UFO's are going to disappear in 2012

I am saving change too. Don't have anything in mind yet but a jar in by my ironing board will get filled and fast I hope. I,also, am having a year of the "finish". Good luck to us.

Love the header with Olivia! We always save our change and I used to wrap it just like that! thank goodness our bank now has a change machine and if you deposit it into your account directly you don't have to pay! I know my boys would like it spent on a skid of treats! Great quilt tops - you are determined and i know you will do it - get it done!
