Leap Year Traveling Stash Giveaway!

Last month I won the Leap Year stash (only shipped once a month) from sewgreen. Now it is my turn to pass it on.
Here are the rules and guidelines:

  1. Be an active blogger. Post about receiving and the giveaway on your blog in a timely manner.
  2. There is a note in the box that logs where the box has been. Please add your info and place the note back in the box. (I did not see it in there when I got it so I will reprint one)
  3. There is a list of Rules and Guidelines in the box. Please read and follow these and return the list to the box. (I did not see it in there when I got it so I will reprint one)
  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. See guidelines below.
  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.
The definition of a stash is a secret store of valuables. For quilters it's a collection of usable quality products. The stash should contain mostly fabric with a few patterns and/or books and other items.
  • FABRIC:     Should be quilt shop quality in new condition. Scraps should only be included if they are cut for adding to a collection and packaged accordingly (i.e. I-Spy squares, postage stamp squares, etc.). There should not be anything under a Fat Quarter unless packaged like this.
  • PATTERNS/BOOKS:     Should be in new or gently used condition. They should be kept to a minimum (books are bulky and add weight).
  • OTHER ITEMS:     Should be in new or gently used condition. Tools, notions, etc. These items should be packaged if necessary.
  • If you receive a box with anything that is of "poor" condition you should not feel guilty in tossing it out.
  • Only put items in the box that you would be proud to own. The box is NOT a dumping place for all your outdated unwanted items.
  • Items should be free of smoke and pet hairs.
  • You must replace items you take with the same quantity of like-kind items. Replacing more than you take is always welcome.  :)
Here are some photos I took of the lovelies you can receive in the box:

  1. thanks for getting the posting up -- when are you drawing to pass along

  2. A good book? I love all the Honor Harrington books by David Weber. Can't pick just one. She is a space captain with a cat. Sounds crazy - cat lady crazy - but they're all good books :o) I'd love to snag that leap year box!

  3. I'm reading a good book on my kindle app called Rigged for Murder.
