TSB Giveaway

What is TSB, you ask? It's the exciting Traveling Stash Box! This box is full of sewing and quilting goodness from crafters all over the US. It travels from blogger to blogger, to share  fabric, patterns, notions, and handmade items. 
There are 6 of these boxes traveling around!
There are rules on Tricia's (TSB moderator) site, but I'll list the most important ones so you can decide if you want to participate.
1.  You must be an ACTIVE blogger
2.  You may take anything from the box, but you must replace each item with another that's comparable and quilt shop quality
3.  You must blog (pics appreciated) about the TSB when you receive it and host a giveaway to share the goodness in a timely manner
4.  You must email Tricia when you recieve the box and when you mail it out again (she does an awesome job of keeping track of all the boxes)
5.  You must be willing to pay for shipping (about $12) within the US only, sorry international folks
OK, now that the rules are mentioned, how about seeing the fun things I got in Box #5 from Alison?  
Quiltaholic sign for my new sewing room!  Fabric, patterns and a book!
AMH book!  Jackpot!
3 sweet patterns  :)

And here's all the things that I have added to the TSB.  They need a new home!  Are you willing?

101 fun sewing projects
Kate Spain goodies, notions, kids labels

Fabric (a little Texas houndstooth in there!)
I also added 3 patterns, but I forgot to take a picture.  Silly me, I was just so excited to get this giveaway going. 
So, here's how you enter.  After you check out the rules, if you want to join in the fun, just leave me a comment with your blog link so I can verify you are an active blogger.  I will draw a winner on the morning of the 23rd.  Best of luck fellow bloggers!

P.S.  I recently won a different TSB, so stay tuned for another TSB giveaway!

ALYoF May Goal

Well, April has come and gone and I barely got a lick of sewing done.  We moved from Texas to Kentucky and all my sewing stuff is STILL in boxes!  I've been trying so hard to get the entire (yes, I said ENTIRE) house painted before I set up all my quilting stuff.  I finally started painting the last room, my quilting area, today.  Hopefully, by Thursday, I'll be done painting and can start setting up the machine.  I'm having serious withdrawals.  On top of being majorly behind on some bee blocks, BOMs, QALs, and testing patterns, I never even started my April goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes.

Remember these Joel Dewberry fat quarters I was going to make into a baby quilt for my best friend?  Well, they still look like this.... somewhere.... in a box!  Sorry, bestie!  :( 

We've planned a trip to meet the little one this month, so I WILL get the quilt finished before we leave.  I'm leaning to a plus sign quilt pattern, thinking it'll go together pretty quickly.  I've always wanted to make one and these colors all coordinate so well together. 

So, that's my May ALYoF goal.  I also recently won a traveling stash box and will be having a fun giveaway for another blogger to be the new caretaker of it in the future.  Stay tuned, you don't want to miss it!
