LAST CALL: The Traveling Stash has Landed!

If you want to be the next winner of the traveling stash box, please leave me a comment by 7pm (eastern) today.  I will notify the winner by email on Friday morning. 

I have been trying with no success to become the recipient of one of the Traveling Stash boxes making their way around the country.  Well, over the weekend, I became the selected stash receiver of not one but two boxes from different locations.  The boxes are loaded with all kinds of goodies, quilt shop quality fabric, notions, magazines, books, etc.  The rule is that you can help yourself to any of the items in the box and then you replace the items with stuff from your stash.  So, yesterday, I received the box from Katie over at Snuggle Up with a Dish from Karma.  The box was loaded with fabric, fabric panels, notions, like buttons, pre-packaged quilt binding, a small embroidery hoop with floss, a really cute pincushion, and lots of patterns, etc.  There is even a pair of chop sticks???? 

Here is the box and its contents!

I looked through and found a few pieces of novelty fabric (I don't have much in my stash) and will make pillowcases for a challenge.  There was also a little light for a rotary cutter.  I could always use that.  As much as I would love to have them, I don't need another pattern and I definitely don't need any gadgets or notions.

Here is what I chose from the box.


...and here is what I added for the next lucky recipient!!

Some Asian-inspired blender fabrics with a couple of focus pieces,  a couple of patterns, 2 skeins of boa yarn (I had a project in mind when I bought this but you know what happens) needles, bias binding and some Thangles.
If you would like the traveling stash to visit you, please leave me a comment by Thursday at 7:00pm (eastern).  I will select a winner on about 9;m on Thursday night and contact you via email.  The box will be mailed by Friday afternoon.  I will be traveling next week, and do not want to hold things up.
Of course as with every challenge, there are rules...a few really simple rules.   Please check them out and if want to participate, then leave a comment for me. 

  1. Be an active blogger.  Post about receiving and the box and the giveaway on your blog in a timely manner.
  2. There is a note in the box that logs where the box has been.  Please add you info and place the note back in the box.
  3. There is a list of Rules and Guidelines in the box.  Please read and follow these and return the list to the box.
  4. You may take anything you like from the box.  Just replace every item with comparable quilt shop quality items equal to the amount taken.
  5. Ship the box to the next person in a reasonable amount of time.
  6. Due to the amount of postage, shipping is only within the USA.

Remember, that I expect another box today or tomorrow and will post it about when I receive it.  So everyone has 2 chances!  Good luck!

so glad to see that you liked most of the items that I put in that box and that you were able to add some other great goodies. I almost want this box back now that you added that beautiful yarn but I am going to wait and see what's in box #2. Happy sewing.

since I'm the only comment why don't you wait for the other box ot arrive and redistribute the items among the two boxes as I know that other one didn't have many patterns or notions and this could improve both boxes and you get more feedback on them. The other box your getting is the other one that I had before also.
