LOOK what my Piggy Bank Savings bought me!

Oh my!! 
A penny saved is a penny earned!!
I couldn't wait for my roadtrip to splurge as my piggy bank savings was just burning a hole in my pocket and I found sales on-line too good to resist! 
Glad you stopped by!
First up: Buggy Barn Books and Fabric! 
I like their patterns as many of them are fat quarter friendly (and well, most my stash is...fat quarters) and they are just so darn fun to make!  I also LOVE their fabric! It's manufactuored by Henry Glass and I stocked up on some half yards for a future applique project I'll be creating. If  you are a Buggy Barn fan you know they went out of business. But wait! One of the sisters opened this on-line site:
Barn Chick Quilts and that's where I shopped.

Next, I shopped at as they had all their novelty Christmas fabric on sale for 20% off so it was the perfect opportunity for me to get yardage for the  Kate Spain Christmas Swap.
These are from Kate Spain's Jinge Rejoice line.
Hey! How did these end up in my cart?? 
I can never resist polka-dots when they are on sale,
They make my stash happy!

So: $144.20 bought me 10 1/2 yards of yummy fabric and four pattern books!
See why I'm so happy!! Not bad for a year's worth of  collecting extra change.
(Oh and I have .36 cents to put back in the piggy for this year's challenge!)

  8. I'm hoping to do that well next july. I put the Challenge button on my blog and posted about it yesterday. Hope that helps bring a few to the challenge. It's on my facebook page as well. I want to keep this in the forefront of my mind so I won't forget to empty my pockets each day. Following most of the ladies will help too and a learning factor as well. A win-win situation. I'm so glad you started this challenge. Thank you.

  9. You made some really fun purchases with your savings.

  10. That fabric from Barn Chick Quilts made me swoon!!! I love plaids and am collecting them whenever I can find them as I'd like to make a plaid quilt one of these days. As soon as I've posted this, I'm going to check out their website ... no waiting until I've filled my "piggy bank"! ha!

  11. Very nice goodies you got for yourself.

  12. $144.20 is great for a years worth saving. I love fabric. com too and your Christmas fabrics are lovely. Got sidetracked along the way but managed to drop $7.50 in the bank that I won at a arts and crafts festival and I will keep it going. Thank you enjoyed the fun.


I have to admit, your comments make me smile! Thanks for sharing and for letting me know you stopped by. I Hope your day is awesome!
