Traveling Stash and some wins


Wow! I have been so lucky lately...... I won another Traveling Stash and a few other goodies, like this pretty red fabric and the Riley Blake Bake Sale. I also won this sweet pincushion and awesome wine charm.
Just look at what came in my Traveling Stash this time!

Lots of wonderful fabric including a large stack of charm squares, some koala and kangaroo fabric and some hearts ready to be ironed on and appliqued. There are also a couple quilt patterns and several embroidery patterns, some purse handles, a 3 inch Kanzashi flower maker and a 5 inch hexi ruler ! (I wish this had come before I bought a hexi ruler for the hexi hop!)  I decided to keep the Kanzashi flower maker, a quilt pattern and a couple pieces of fabric:

 I added into the box a couple quilt patterns and some fabric:

Important Things to Remember
