Traveling Stash GiveAWAY

I love the definition and the synonyms for
                Stash, (cache, treasure, wealth, supply, inventory,riches)
                            noun :a secret store of valuables

As I took treasures out of the box it seemed like Mary Poppins' carpet bag- Bottomless! I have it laying across the table and there is no way all that was in this box! But it somehow fit!

 This is what I am keeping- I am so excited about a few of these pieces! I am still working on Granny's Domestic Bliss ( granny squares made with Liz Scott's "Domestic Bliss" line) and I haven't been able to find more- there were two pieces of "Domestic Bliss" in the Stash! I am also making a car keeper for a nephew and there was a piece of "Honk Honk" by Michael Miller that is perfect!

This is just some of what I am putting in- I also have a couple rulers, some more fat quarters, notions and some mini charms to put in.

Since the traveling stash giveaway is only for active bloggers, and since this is my very first giveaway,  I am also having a surprise second chance giveaway for EVERYBODY(even my international readers.) I don't know yet what it is, but I promise it will be good stuff!

(Don't worry! If you are not a quilter/sewista the prize will not be fabric/supplies-
it may be made *out *of fabric)

Rules for traveling stash: I copied these directly from Danny's Blog

- Be an active blogger. Post about receiving and the giveaway on your blog in a timely manner.
- 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.
- There is a list of Rules and Guidelines in the box. Please read and follow these and return the list to the box.
- You may take anything you like from the box. Just replace every item with comparable quilt shop quality items equal to the amount taken.
- Ship the box to the next person in a reasonable amount of time.
- Due to the amount of postage shipping is only within the USA. Sorry guys. I'm a little broke right now!

Now for a little heart to heart: The Traveling Stash is not a dumping ground for your old, outdated, smelly fabric. It is an opportunity to share some of your lovelies with your bloggy friends. Should you take all the pretty stuff and replenish the box with really ugly fabric, I will scowl in your general direction
* note to Danny- please don't scowl at me! I put pretty stuff in!

Now the important part. How do you win this lovely box of SWAG? Just leave a comment,  any ol' comment will do. Be sure to include a email addy. Also tell me whether or not you are a blogger! (that way I can visit your blog- I always need more friends to visit and so I can put you in the correct drawing) Followers of my blog get an extra chance- let me know how you follow in a separate comment!   I shall enlist some helpers of the kidlet sort to draw a name out of a hat or bowl or whatever is handy and post the winners on Monday June 18th!Update: DUH I am an AIRHEAD, I will be drawing NEXT monday JUne 25th! Sorry for the confusion!

Okay, I think I covered everything- If I forgot something please let me know!
