We have a winner for the Traveling Stash! Julie of Distant Pickles is the lucky person! (you have to read where the name of her blog came is so cute!)

As soon as I can get the boxed packed(and that should be fun since it will be packed full), I will get the package off to her and she can go through it and get all the goodies she wants before passing it on!

Congratulations again, Julie!!!

I was lucky enough to win another Traveling Stash! They sure are fun! I was so excited when the box got here, that I forgot to take a photo! Even though the box was brand new, it was already starting to split because it was so full! I want to turn this Stash around fast so I went through the box quickly and picked out what I wanted. There was so much to chose from but here is what I picked( Click to see larger version):

I want to learn how to FMQ so the book should be a big help. Aren't the fabrics just wonderful?

Now it is time for me to add to the box. I decided to "freshen up" the Stash a bit. I decided it needed some Christmas goodies since it is that time of the year. So I included a Michael Miller Holiday fat quarter set, some Holiday rotary cut 5" squares, a yard of bright yellow Tidings of Great Joy from Quilting Treasures, a FQ of Studio E TREES Green from their Holiday Magic collection plus two other Fat Quarters that I don't know their pedigrees(but I like them)!

A close up of the 5 FQ's in the Michael Miller collection.
 But I wanted to  include some everyday fabric also, so I chose 4 FQ of OOP Tula Pink's Flutterby,
some Moda Neptune charm squares, a cute little FQ of daisies and ladybugs, along with 2 FQ of Riley Blake's Rainy Days and Mondays. I also included a copy of  sew what? BAGS  by Lexie Barnes.

And that isn't all...I am adding some little notions, zippers, etc. and a surprise but you have to WIN to see what the extras are!

Now of course, there are some rules! (Aren't there always?) So here they are:

1. Be an active blogger. Post about receiving the box and the giveaway on your blog in a timely manner.
2. There's 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's a list of Rules and Guidelines in the box. Please read and follow these and return the list to the box.
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.
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.

How do you win?  Just keep reading! 

1. Leave a comment on this post about your favorite sewing organizing method! That should be  fun reading. I sure need to learn how to organize. My one hint for organization is using new pizza boxes to keep projects in. They close tightly and are easy to store in a small area.

2. For a second chance, you can follow my blog,  not that I am all that exciting! Comment that you are a follower.

3. For a third chance, mention this giveaway on your blog. Comment that you have.
The giveaway ends at midnight EDT on Saturday, October 20th. I will draw the winning number on the 21st and get the package in the mail! Be sure that I have a way to get in touch with you!

That is it! Easy Peasy! Good luck to you all!!!!!

Lots Going On!

Haven't been here in a long while so lots has been happening! First, I won TWO giveaways on the Dots On Dots Blog Hop! Yes, two! First I won some wonderful fabric from Sharon at Vroomansquilts. It is a Pickles panel by Brian Crane for Timeless Treasure. Along with the panel is a yard of coordinating fabric.
Here is a peek at it!
I am going to make a small quilt for ME!! I have never kept a quilt that I have made so this one is for me, me, me! Isn't it too cute?

My second prize was some lovely "dotty" fabric from Nati at Natilittlethings. See!

I am going to make a cute little coin purse from some of this.

Speaking of coin purses....I am participating in Mdm. Samm's at So We Quilt UR PRICELESS blog hop( November 5-13)!(See the button on the right sidebar.)  I am busy making up my little coin purses and am having a blast!!!! It is so addictive. So remember to check back here for the list of participants on November 5th. My day will be Friday, November 9th.
