"One man's trash is another man's treasure." These words definitely describe quilters. For months, the traveling stash has been visiting the homes of lucky quilters. Like the book, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, the traveling stash adapts itself to each quilter that it visits.I was fortunate to win the box from Sara at Growing Stitches . I was actually in the hospital when I received the email from Sarah saying that she needed my address for an early Christmas gift. Due to the holidays and my recovery time, the Traveling Stash has patiently lived on my dining room table for a couple of weeks. It is anxious to visit another quilter. Here are the rules for entering the giveaway for this Traveling Stash.
Here are the rules:
1. You must have an active blog.
2. You may take whatever you want from the stash but you must replenish the box
3. You agree to host a giveaway on your blog and send the Traveling Stash on to the winner.
4. U.S. friends only please due to the shipping costs.The box contains a list of directions and a history of the quilters that the stash has visited.
It was fun to examine every piece of fabric, study each pattern, and open each bag with "bobbles and bits."
In spite of the extreme temptation, the treasures that fit me best were some pieces of fabric, quilt labels, thread and a notion for old needles.
In place of these items, I added two older charm packs, Pampered Pooch and Hydrangea Garden, the recent Quiltmaker magazine (I had duplicates), patterns, notion for marking rows, a bag of selvages and whatever else jumps in the box in the next week.
The giveaway begins as soon as I hit "Publish" and will end next Saturday, January 7, 2012 at noon EST. To enter, leave one comment describing your goals/resolutions/plans for 2012.
