Traveling Stash Giveaway - including Heather Ross scraps!

Giveaway is now closed.  Congrats, Marci!

Did I get your attention?!  :)  That's right, I'm giving away a few of my beloved Heather Ross scraps!  I actually had to tape up the box after I put them in, I was worried I'd pull them back out.

I was lucky enough to win one of the Traveling Stash boxes from The Sunflower Patch.  If you don't know about the Traveling Stash, Cherise at Sewingly Along does a fantastic job keeping track of all the boxes & giveaways.  Basically it's exactly what the name says - a box of fabric & other goodies that's traveling around the US.  When you receive it, you can take out anything you would like, as long as you replace what you take out.

Here's a peek at what was in this box:

Traveling Stash

Lots of fabric, including some laminates (the cherries, black & white, and red with white polka dots at the front of the picture), a book, embroidery hoop, turning tool, & trim.  There are some other things as well that didn't make it into the picture: a bag pattern, magazine, thimble, thread, and probably a few other little things I can't remember now.  

Here are the fabrics I added to the box.  A couple fat quarters, and that green linen with the butterflies is probably a 1-2 yard cut.  I can't remember now how big it was!

And of course, what you really want to see, the Heather Ross scraps.  These are each 4 inches square, which I realize isn't huge, but it really was hard for me to add them to the box.  These little guys are my absolute favorite!

  1. I would love to have this box come visit - I see some goodies to add to existing collection items so I might possibly finally start that special project!

  2. I would love to win this box of treasures! I see several things I would love to have. And I have tons of goodies I could add back to this box.

  3. I am impressed by your generosity...I have been stalking those fishies forever as I have none and would love to have those squares...I'm sure I could find some good things to add to this box, thanks for the chance :)

  4. Favorite memory this summer? That is hard, there are so many. Maybe our trip to the beach, or the aquarium? Hmmm...I think it would have to be our little guy crawling and sitting up for the first time. They grow up SO FAST!

  5. Ohhh, so pretty! I would love a chance at this box, thanks for the opportunity!!

  6. My favorite memory is having my stepdaughter with us for an entire month. I treasure those times. She's growing up so fast.

  7. My favorite memory - my sons birthday party. I was so stressed, because it rained that morning, but it was beautiful weather for it at party time. Good food, good company, he had fun, and I think he loved everything Mickey Mouse, so it was worth the work and stress. :D

  8. I would LOVE to get a look at what is in that box! My favorite memory of this summer was watching my little boy roll over for the first time.

  9. We bought our first house this summer. After renting for over 10 years, it has been quite challenging, but so worth it!

  10. Wow I wish I was in teh USA - I'd swap for the book and the goldfish - wow!!! Fun!!!

  11. I've had a wonderful summer, including lots of vacation travel and time spent sitting and sewing or reading on my porch. But probably my favorite memory of the summer was learning that my 7 year old won first place in the backstroke in the Regional Swim Meet, only his second meet ever. I think I was more excited than he was!


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate each & every one I get. I do try to respond to most (if not all) comments, but that's hard to do if you don't have an e-mail in your profile! :)
