Lovely box. I see a few items I would love to trade for.

Congratulations Emily!  I have sent you an email for your mail info!

Wow was I surprised with all the goodies in this "traveling Stash Box" that I received.  So I took out the goodies that I wanted and replaced them with some others.
I added some extra cause we all need to have a great selection don't you think?  Well if you would like to be the next recipient of  this box just leave a comment and I will be mailing it out on the 1st  of August...Here are some pics to let you know what you have a chance to pick from:
This what came in the box originally when I received it!

This is what I could not pass up and pulled from the box
to add to my collection!

This is what I added into the box:  over 5 yards of at least 1 yard pieces, the cats are just too cute; 5 patterns from Sunbonnet Sue, a Celtic one, and 3 others; 10 FQ's; a carry all purse that I made; 4 pieces of my own hand-dyed fabric; 2 metler threads, a pk. of felted fabric buttons, some lovely glass pink beads and this very pretty Tuscany colored trim
Now here is the box complete and filled to the max!
Sorry but I had to sort of squish it all together....
Now would you like to have some things in this box, if so here are the rules and guidelines to play along and please just  leave me a comment and I will pull one lucky winner on Thursday, July 31st to be mailed on August 1st..
Rules & Guidelines::
  • Be an active blogger -- post about receiving the box and the giveaway in a timely manner
  • Update the travel log in the box to let others know where the box has been.
  • There is a list of rules and guidelines in the box -- be sure to follow these to keep the box full of quality items and the experience positive for everyone.
  • You may take any items from the box just be sure that you are replacing them with quality and comparable items. (Guidelines for fabric below)
  • Ship box to the next person timely -- and communicate tracking information with recipient.
  • Shipping is within the US only

Fabric and other item Guidelines

  • Fabric should be quilt shop quality and in new condition. Do not include items smaller than a fat quarter unless it falls into one of the other categories and these should be packaged together.
    • Jelly Roll -- 2.5 inch strips (typically 40 strips per set)
    • Honey Buns -- 1.5 inch strips (typically 40 strips per set)
    • Desert Roll -- 10 strips 5 inches wide cut the length of the fabric

    • Layer Cake -- 10 inch squares (typically 40 squares per set)

  • Patterns / Books should be in new or nearly new condition and should be kept to a minimum as this adds bulk and weight.
  • Other items should be new or gently used condition and should be packaged as necessary to ensure that all parts remain together.

  • Important Things to Remember

    • Please ensure that items in the box are quality. If items in the box are poor quality they should be removed. Items that are being removed can be offered for optional inclusion to the next recipient. Poor quality items can be discarded but this should be done with digression.
    • Only include items that you would be proud to own -- this is not a dumping ground for outdated or worn items
    • Items should be free of smoke, odors and pet hair
    • You must replace all items that you take with items of equal value and replacing with more than you take is welcome :)

    Have a wonderful Day!!!!
