Good morning and Happy Saturday! I have been away from blogging for a while. Life has become busy again with packing to get ready to move and a full time work schedule! This weekend I am going to take some sewing time during the day and pack at night!
About two weeks ago I received a travelling stash box. This box began it's travels in August of 2012. When I received the box, read the rules and examined its contents, I noticed that the box had grown weary from travelling. The contents of the box that I received will be donated to a church group to use for hospice quilts. The travelling stash is a way to Pay it Forward to quilters. When you receive this box it is filled with an assortment of fabrics, patterns and notions for a wide range and skill level of quilters. The two pictures below are of most of the new items that will travel to the next recipient.
The rules to receive this box are fairly simple. You must be an active blogger to receive this box.
- The definition of a Stash is a secret store of valuables. For quilters it is a collection of usable quality products. The stash contains fabric, patterns and notions. ALL FABRIC IN THE BOX IS AND MUST CONTINUE ON AS QUILT SHOP QUALITY. THE FABRIC SHOULD BE NEW AND UNWASHED.
- PATTERNS/BOOKS should be new or in a gently used condition. (No free patterns from the Internet) Books take up a lot of space and the box is limited, so please include fabric instead of a big book.
- Other items such as tools or notions should be packaged and in new or gently used condition. Nothing should be old or tattered.
- WHEN YOU RECEIVE THE BOX, feel free to take whatever you like and replace it with the same quantity and QUILT SHOP QUALITY THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED. REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE PAYING IT FORWARD TO THE NEXT QUILTER TO RECEIVE THE BOX.
