Win Traveling Stash Box #2 - Ends June 30

Time to give away traveling stash box #2 and here is what it looks like! Contest starts today and ends June 30th.

 This box is smaller and came in a medium box, so it will save some money for you when you win it!

It had 2 really nice Needlepoint kits, a Counted Cross Stitch kit, a Doll pattern and another quilt pattern and 2 purse handles. Since I do not make purses, have never learned counted cross stitch or needlepoint, I place them all sadly back in the box, wishing I knew how! Not to mention a really cute ribbon kit for making barrettes!

I have so many quilting patterns already I will be like that saying I can't die until they are all used up so I will be around 2000 years old by then. HAHA!!

I did keep 2 pieces of fabric that I think will make a really nice table piece for our big BBQ next week (oh, that means I have to get busy!), the charm pack, a baggie of pre-made squares for a baby quilt (great to fit into my box to OKC tornado victims) and a larger piece of fabric. Done and Done are the 2 projects!
I then added the following back to the box:
1 yard of green plaid fabric
1 yard of floral fabric
2 Sunflower fat quarters (Thimbleberries)
1/2 yard pinkish red mottle
2 Australian Fat Quarters: 1 with a kangaroo/1 with a koala bear
Large EZ Guide Hexie template
A lighted needle threader
1 pack Schmetz machine needles
1 flower making template
8 pre-cut hearts with Steam a Seam so they are ready to iron on
