These are for my girls.... yes I will split it between two of them....
Going very quickly... 2 jelly rolls that i got from Joanns, when???? Long time ago...

I have never won a Traveling Stash Box, did now even know what it was (so sad)  But I do now! (sew happy)

I happened across a blog recently "Apple Avenue Quilts" and she was hosting a giveaway for the traveling Stash Box.  I posted a comment and I just received an e-mail that I won. Yeah!!!

OK now what do I do?????

Then I received an e-mail from Cherise at Sewingly Along She keeps track of the stash boxes... I have instructions now (sew happy)!!!!  Thank you Cherise I won't be so lost now....

I have received the box, never did I imagine that soooooo much stuff could be packed into one little box......

All of this was in the box when I opened it!!!!

 And this............

 And this toooooo..........

Such lovely items to go though to ohhhhh and ahhhhhh!!!!

 So kept a few things...........

And I added a few things also........


Would you like to be the next recipient of the traveling stashbox???

All you need to do is add a comment below and you will be entered!  Easy Right?

I will be picking and posting a new destination on February 14th 2013!


  1. Be an active blogger. Post about receiving 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 your 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.  You can also find this information HERE
  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. See guidelines below.
  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

 You can find additional locations of the other Traveling Stash Boxes HERE

The definition of a stash is a secret store of valuables. For quilters it's a collection of usable quality products. The stash should contain mostly fabric with a few patterns and/or books and other items.
  • FABRIC:     Should be quilt shop quality in new condition. Scraps should only be included if they are cut for adding to a collection and packaged accordingly (i.e. I-Spy squares, postage stamp squares, etc.). There should not be anything under a Fat Quarter unless packaged like this.
  • PATTERNS/BOOKS:     Should be in new or gently used condition. They should be kept to a minimum (books are bulky and add weight).
  • OTHER ITEMS:     Should be in new or gently used condition. Tools, notions, etc. These items should be packaged if necessary.

Have a Happy Quilting Day

Calling all quilters!

Good Morning

While browsing the blogging world last night I came across a request from one of our fellow bloggers.  "Missy's Homemaking Adventures"  Her plea to all quilters really touched my heart!

Missy is in Mansfield Texas and has made a call out for help to make pinwheel blocks for a very special little girl named Kenzie.

I will be working on a few of these tonight to help her out.

Anyone else interested???? Please hop over to Missy's blog and read her request, I know it is short notice but I hope others can help.

I did go through the Traveling Stash Box last night, lots of petting and panting, I will have pictures soon.

Happy Quilting!!!

Super Bowl Sunday

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by!

What did you get to do for Super Bowl, I watched most of the commercials, the Budweiser Clydesdale's are my favorite every year. My dear hubby watched the game and I listened while I put the binding on my Son in Law's quilt.  Last weekend I finally got all the blocks together and now it is ready for the frame.

Do to an unfortunate accident..... (Me & the dog) I have not opened the Traveling stash box yet, but plan to very very soon, hopping tonight..... You can find the information here

Our 45lb bulldog took a flying (and I mean flying) leap at the patio chair..... guess I should have not have had myself turned and standing next to the chair!!!! She hit the chair, that hit me in the ribs.  Low and behold I am a lot sore and cant pick up much for a few days......  We will see how that goes.... Been to urgent care, x rays are OK but doc wanted me to go to ER..... Since I have a heart condition they tend to freak out...  I will think on that one for a few days.....

Anyway here are a few pictures of Brandon's quilt top finished (the son in law)  Hope to get quilting on it soon.

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Quilting!
