The Traveling Stash Giveaway - You Know You Want It!
Guess what? The Traveling Stash has landed on my doorstep - and now it's your turn to get a chance at receiving this yummy box of goodness!! It doesn't really look as romantic as that picture above - wouldn't it be cool if it did, with stickers from all the places it's been? But it looks great inside - lots of fabulous goodies!! Here's a teaser of what's in it....
I don't want to show you too much, because half the fun is opening it up and going through it! Here's what I found and had to keep....
Some beautiful fabrics for the stash in blue and purple, a black and white piece to add to my "B/W Quilt Someday" collection, a charm pack of Birch Lodge, a great sort-of retro print for a dress for Miss Lilli, some seasonal prints for a fall table topper, a Christmas print, and some interesting notions - two flexible thimbles, a pair of quilt clamps, and some more flat-headed pins (you can never have too many!) It felt like Christmas!!
And here's what I put in to replace all that goodness....
99 apple core pre-cuts in '30's repro prints - I won these a while back, but have come to the realization that I will never have time to actually sew them together, and they're so pretty, they deserve to become a quilt! Three really cute quilt patterns, and a charm pack of Fairy Tale Friends....
...five great patriotic prints (there's enough for a quilt top there!) and a yard each of Buzz Lightyear and Woody the Cowboy fabric!
So...... do you want a chance at all this lovely loot? The rules are simple - first of all, you have to be an active blogger. Secondly, after you take what you want from the Stash, you must promise to pass it on promptly, after adding back in comparable items in comparable amounts to what you removed. Please use good quilt shop quality fabric, and put in things you would want to receive yourself! (The Golden Rule is a good guide for the Traveling Stash!) Easy peasy. (One more thing, and I'm sorry for this, but this giveaway is only open to residents of the US and Canada - the box is getting heavy and I can't afford to send it overseas. So sorry to all my lovely overseas readers!!)
How do you enter? Even easier! Just leave me a comment. You can become a follower if you want (see how close that number is to 500? I bet there'll be a giveaway when I get there!) but you don't have to. You can also get an extra entry if you blog about the Traveling Stash giveaway! Just leave an extra comment saying you have, with a link to your blogpost. So you can have up to two chances to win!
Entries will close on Saturday, October 29th at noon Central Standard Time, and Little Miss Random will choose a winner that evening sometime. I'll post the winner next Sunday, October 30th!
