Piggy Bank Challenge.

I saw this on Daffycat and went over to Val's Quilting Studio and decided to try the Piggy Bank Challenge!  Just a way to save pennies and have fun at the end of the year.

I'm going to do mine a little differently, though.  I am handicapped and don't get out much.  DH does all my errands and grocery shopping for me (bless his heart).  So I have my checking account et al on paper... well really on the computer.  Excel is WONDERFUL!  When he brings the receipt, I round it up to the next dollar amount and put the change in my 'digital' piggy bank.  I am an avid cross stitch collector.  Just wish my stitching would keep up with it!  LOLOL.  So that's what I am doing.  I'm excited.

Have a great day y'all!

I Won!

the last KYKS Bingo game!  Marl, who was the caller, generously sent me a GC from 123 Stitch!  This is what I got:


Little House Needleworks "Six Little Cardinals" © 2012, 
Little House Needleworks "Grandma's House" © 2017, and
Little House Needleworks "2016 Christmas Ornament" © 2016.

This will be part of my next stitching projects for the upcoming Christmas season.

You might want to join our Bingo game sometime.  It's a blast!  Too late right now, though.  I'm running this one and it's already started.  Keep checking to see who wins and when the next game will start.  :D

Hi Y'all

Good Morning and happy Friday.

Just a note to explain my new 'widget' for the "Spinster Stitcher".  She is an amazing woman who has a failing kidney and needs our help.  If you know her, you know what I'm talking about.  If you don't please use this [link] to go have a visit and start reading from the beginning to get a flavor of the kind of woman and life she leads.  You will smile, laugh and cry with her as well as see some amazing stitching AND if you are so moved go and donate via my widget.  No donation is too small as "it takes a village" to help each other as well as raise a child.

Thanks for visiting and your help in advance.

God Bless Us Every One!

Stitching Update

Well, here's my other update.

Little House Needleworks - RST ©2017

Can't seem to get as much accomplished.  Too much going on lately.  But I'm happy with it because at least I'm stitching again.  I miss it when I'm not stitching.  It's soothing, comforting and peaceful.  :)

Happy Monday y'all.
