Twice as lucky!

contest is closed.

Remember way back in February when I won the Traveling Stash
I then sent it on again

I followed it for a little while but lost track of it when it split in two. 

Well it was a nice surprise when I came across it again. I decided I would comment on it not expecting to win it!

Well I did, I won Box 1.
I emailed the blogger to let her know that I had won it before and that I wouldn't be upset if she did the draw again. 
She replied that she didnt see a problem with it and thought my readers would like another try!

so guess what? It arrived yesterday and today I went though it.

It was really neat to see that so much that was in there at the beginning (I was the second to win) that isnt there now. A lot was moved when she split it. This is the 11th hands it has been in. 

all that is left that I sent off was the santa, the burgundy place-mats and the pompoms and peachy bias binding. oh- and maybe some of the patterns.

This is what is going back into the box that was in there when I received it.
(Note my husbands hand in the upper left.)

I am amazed how much was fit into this box!
When I tried to pack all the stuff back in the box that is in that ^picture, it was hard AND I still had to add my stuff.

this is going back in

 Soo what am I adding?
Well you may know about my "slight" ikea fabric addiction - If not- go read about it.

Since I like you guys so much I have added FOUR half yards of my Ikea fabric to the Stash.

 I only have 2 of the fabrics shown here. I also added some 2 inch cut strips, a green and white and yellow muslin sheet, some fishing fabric and some scraps. 

Here is what I am keeping:
I couldnt get the block back in the box so I will keep it for a baby shower. I also have some flower fabric that is of the same line. 
I love the Psalm quotes and am excited to work them into a quilt somehow.
I also grabbed the quilting pattern. I think it will be a great pattern to follow with my hand quilting. 
oh and the blue fat quarters. 


Ok- and now the rules:
 You must be willing to continue the travelling stash giveaway. Once you receive the package, you must fill it up again with fabric from your stash and any fabric that you don't want that I've included. Then, you will have a giveaway on your blog, continuing the travelling stash.

I will do just a one comment per person - let me know where you are. I am curious to see who is reading this blog. 

Drawing will take place using on Wednesday, June 29th.

This is fun! Glad you got it back. I won one of the boxes when it was split in two. I'm not entering...I am leaving for Europe in a couple of days and wouldn't be able to pass it along.

What a hoot!!!! LOL That "Creative Woman" wallhanging was one of my contributions when the box came to my house (hoping SOMEONE will take it! LOL) I'd lost track of the boxes, too. Glad it came home to roost for a while!

The traveling stash sounds like a lot of fun. I don't have a blog but my swap partner does and I could send it on to her. Having fun watching what is added and disappears.

Jacqueline said...

Exciting!! I would love to add to the mix. =)

Anne said...

So glad you will find a home for the "baby block," which is what I intended to be a pincushion. I made it with fabrics I won from Anne Sutton, of Bunny Hill Designs.
