Traveling Stash Box Has Arrived


Hi Friends! I seem to have taken an unplanned blogging break. Not sure if I am back to blogging for good. The good thing is that I am getting some sewing and reading done! Last week, this wonderful box arrived at my house. It's the Traveling Stash Box # 1. 
As you can tell from the photo, the box was stuffed with sewing goodies. It is perhaps the box with the most variety in the boxes that I have won. In addition to the fabric, patterns and books (2), the box contains panels, thread, floss, notions (machine needles, quilting gloves) Kindle Fire cover, and other wonderful stash items. This box began it's travels in January of 2011. That's almost 2 years. In fact, I found my name on the list of places that it has visited. Yes, I've had this box before, but nothing in the box was the same as when I previously received it. I thought I would have everything decided when I posted the giveway, but I'm still undecided about some items that I will take and what items I will add. Elderly parent care, bathroom renovations, son home from Disney and now in new university and other son getting married in a month - there's been some distractions:)

This is a not so good photo of the contents of the box. Every time I go through the box, I find something else that wants to stay at my home:)
 These are the items that I'm thinking of keeping. One yard cuts of fabric and a pincusion pattern
but these charm packs are awfully tempting. I have fabric to add, some notions and patterns, but haven't made it downstairs to my sewing room. Will try to add a photo of what I am adding in the next day or so.

The traveling stash begins today and will end on Sunday, September 16th at midnight. Give yourself a treat and enter to win this Traveling Stash Box. In your comments, tell me what kinds of items (be specific) that you would like to find in a traveling stash box. (Example: French General fabric, hand sewing needles, magazines)  Take care! Good luck!
