The Traveling Stash is ready to travel again! (closed)

These boxes have been looking rather beat up lately.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. The Traveling Stash is  going to Martha's house!

One of the boxes from the traveling stash arrived at my house this weekend! I won this box from over at My Sister Made Me Do It.  I believe there are 4 stash boxes that have spawned from the original traveling stash box and 1Pass It On box. To see where they all are head on over to VROOMAN'S QUILTS  where Sharon has been keeping track of the boxes for us.  It's getting a bit hard to keep track of all the boxes and where they have been. Check here if you are interested in seeing where this box has been.

So, what did I remove?

I found a few fabrics that tickled my fancy. That cute owl is part of a panel. I'm thinking it wants to be a baby quilt.

A new seam ripper because I have worn through a few already. I also grabbed two spools of Aurifil thread. I haven't used Aurifil thread before but I have heard that it is wonderful to work with.

These are some of the fabrics I placed in the box. I love surprises so I don't want to spoil anyone's surprise when they receive the box. I replaced the notions with fabric also.

This box has a stack of patterns. I found one (forgot to take a picture) that Hubby liked so I replaced it with more fabric instead of another pattern.

I put it in a new box and it is already to travel again.

Here are the rules:      
        1. You must be an active blogger. 
2. When you receive it, write a blog post on its contents, what you removed, and what you are putting in. 
3. Replace per diem - if you took 4 yards of fabric, replace it with 4 yards of quilt quality fabric.
          4. Due to postage and customs - open to the United States only.

Do you want the traveling stash to visit you? Just leave a comment and you are entered. Out of curiosity how are doing with your 2012 goals? I've finished 7 of my UFOs but I've also created 3 more. I have finished a couple new projects so overall I feel good. I was waiting for a thread order to arrive so I could get some more flimsies quilted.

I will draw a name next Sunday, February 26th.

don't enter me for the box, but I have always wondered if it was worth it?

What fun for the US ladies.

Great picks of fabric - oh, someone dumped their patterns, a no-no with the stash box. But I would love a chance as I spy something I would love to have.

Hey Robin! I'd love for that box to visit my house. I was trying to keep up following one of them around, but gave up. LOL!

As for my 2012 goals...I really didn't set any. I'll just be happy if I finish my moms' quilt and the one I've just started for my FIL. AND, it would be nice if I could finally make one for myself! :o)

I'm in...would love that box to stop at my house.

Allie said...

That is such a great idea! You'll love the Aurifil thread. Goals? What's that??? LOL!

I would love for the Traveling Stash to come for a visit! I haven't even begun to finish any of my UFO's but I have finished 6 new projects this year.
